  • John Ordover, Star Trek editor at Pocket Books, sends along word that after sending out several thousand 'New Earth' postcards, their supply has been exhausted. A few weeks ago, Ordover offered to send everyone who submitted their streetmail address to him a 'New Earth' postcard. He apologises to all those who requested one and didn't get one, but he's added those addresses to the Star Trek books mailing list for future giveaways.
