Making a Collection Count

Trekker Friday Fiction

Star Trek: The Truth Machine
Cerf
1977

I found this while browsing a collection looking for something for a patron, and just got so excited. (I think the kid I was helping thought I was having some kind of “episode.”) I had to get my hands on this book! I am a fan of the original series and all the others. I also have an Enterprise pizza cutter, a Klingon dictionary, and a book of poetry by Mr. Spock.

This book reads like an episode, and the pictures do look like the characters.  However, I am not sure that I am the target market for the juvenile fiction section of a library. (I know a hundred adults that would get a kick out of this in a heartbeat.) Note the illustration where Mr. Spock breaks out PENCIL AND PAPER to draw up some plans!

Is juvenile fiction the best place for this? It would be a slam dunk for a book sale or an adult looking to re-live a few childhood moments. Modern kids? Probably not.

Live long and prosper,

Mary

UPDATE: It was announced today around 1pm EST that Leonard Nimoy passed away. Condolences to all who are feeling the loss. RIP Mr. Spock.
