Re: The Assassination Game - Plot write-up
- Bad news about "The Assasination Game" and the follow-up book. I was just on Chapters.Indigo.ca, Amazon.ca, Simonandschustercanada.com and Simonandschuster.com, and it looks like the book has been pushed way, way, way back, to a June 26, 2012 release date (Simon & Schuster's websites don't even list the book) and the Untitled #5 now shoved back to December 18, 2012, instead of coming out within the next
I wonder what's going on? Since that mean's that there will be a whole year between releases ("The Gemini Agent" was released on June 26, 2011). I wonder if it has something to do with the new movie, or something completely different? But, boy, this is the second time that books in the JJ universe have been held up.

> 'The rules are simple: draw a target. Track him down and "kill" him with a spork. Take your victim''s target for your own. Oh, and make sure the player with your name doesn''t get to you first. No safe zones. No time outs. The game ends when only one player remains. James T. Kirk is playing for fun. Leonard "Bones" McCoy is playing to get closer to a girl. But when a series of explosions rocks the usually placid Starfleet Academy campus, it becomes clear that somebody is playing the game for real. Is it one of the visiting Varkolak, on Earth to attend an intergalactic medical conference? Or could it be a member of a super-secret society at the Academy dedicated to taking care of threats to the Federation, no matter what rules they have to break to do it? Find out in The Assassination Game.'
