Another pair of releases coming up next year are David R. George III's Typhon Pact duology, Plagues of Night and Raise the Dawn. Simon and Schuster have just released a preliminary cover for Plagues of Night, and it's pretty impressive. Keep in mind, this is only a retailer solicitation cover, and the final version may look very different:
I have updated the 2012 Releases page with the new cover.
The back-cover blurb for Plagues of Night has also been released:
In the wake of the final Borg invasion, which destroyed entire worlds, cost the lives of sixty-three billion people, and struck a crippling blow to Starfleet, six nations adversarial to the United Federation of Planets -- The Romulan Star Empire, the Breen Confederacy, the Tholian Assembly, the Gorn Hegemony, the Tzenkethi Coalition, and the Holy Order of the Kinshaya -- joined ranks to form the Typhon Pact. For almost three years, the Federation and the Klingon Empire, allied under the Khitomer Accords, have contended with the nascent coalition on a predominantly cold-war footing. But as Starfleet rebuilds itself, factions within the Typhon Pact grow restive, concerned about their own inability to develop a quantum slipstream drive to match that of the Federation. Will leaders such as UFP president Bacco and RSE Praetor Kamemor bring about a lasting peace across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, or will the cold war between the two alliances deepen, and perhaps even lead to an all-out shooting war?
Plagues of Night is due to be released in June of 2012. You can read its entry in the Simon and Schuster catalog here.
