I found a second hand bookshop today. Bizarre place. So heavily packed with books over three floors that it was hard to move without tripping over boxes of them. The sort of place that the owners make you feel you're an inconvenience. No Who books of course, but a small room's worth of various old annuals (no exaggeration, no TF ones) and a six foot shelf double stacked with Trek novels. Arm loads of them! If only they'd been Target novels.
Motion Picture novelisation has been reprinted. Never read it before. It is as legendarily mad as the reputation it has says. Prime Roddenberry. The first paragraph tells us Kirk is named after his mother's 'first love instructor'. A later footnote tells us whether Kirk and Spock were lovers. Kirk's genitals 'stir' at one point. Lots of guff about 'new humans'. Mesmerising madness.

Picked up the hardcover 'Star Trek: The Classic Episodes'. 700 pages. Contains 45 of the old James Blish novelisations of episodes which were published in 'Star Trek Logs' books (and later reprinted across 3 bumper paperbacks in 1991). I have a great fondness for these old adaptations so it's nice to have some of them again. Alas, this HC was a one-off published in 2016 so the remaining TOS/TAS adaptaions remain out of print.
I read them in the Corgi editions. Circular space pic at top, a "Star Trek" logo across it and a picture of the Enterprise. Painted covers. A brief bit of research suggests they'd had several prior UK editions.
