Steven Barnes - Michael Jan Friedman - L. A. Graf - Jeffrey Lang - S. D. Perry - Kristine Kathryn Rusch - Jill Sherwin - Robert Simpson - Susan Wright - Judith Reeves-Stevens - Garfield Reeves-Stevens - The ​Lives of Dax
Nine ​stories by top SF authors view the whole of Star Trek history through one special character's eyes. One of the most popular and compelling Star Trek characters ever created, Dax is a wormlike being who is joined body and soul to a succession of humanoid hosts. Each life is different, each body is different, each personality is different, but all of them are Dax. At one time or another Dax has been male, female, a Starfleet officer, a statesman, a scientist, and ambassador, even a serial killer. The symbiont's humanoid hosts have included Curzon, friend of Klingons, and Jadzia, science officer on Deep Space Nine and latterly wife of Worf. The most recent incarnation is Ezri Dax, station counsellor on Deep Space Nine. Designed to appeal to fans of every version of Star Trek, the stories in The Lives of Dax each show a different host's adventure - nine incredible lives stretched out over 357 years of Star Trek history. The stories are rich with different aliens, planets, battles, personal struggles, surprising revelations, and guest stars galore.

Michael Jan Friedman - Robert Greenberger - Hús ​és vér
Az ​emberek már tönkretették a Földet, ám továbbra is töretlenül kutatják a kizsákmányolható természeti forrásokat, így más bolygókon is csak a pusztítás nyomai maradnak utánuk. A világot irányító nagy hatalmú családok egyike, a Ciejek klán is a lelkiismeret nélküli kitermelésből gazdagodott meg. Amikor a család pátriárkája meghal a klán tagjai szinte azonnal egymás torkának esnek. Az egyik fél a rettegett ragadozókat hívja segítségül, ám az idegen harcosok vadsága még a klán kegyetlen tagjainak képzeletét is felülmúlja...

Michael Jan Friedman - Relics
The ​U.S.S. Enterprise discovers the wreckage of a starship upon the monstrous surface of a Dyson sphere, an artificially-constructed habitat built around a star; and preserved in a weak transporter pattern is Starfleet engineering legend Montgomery "Scotty" Scott. Mr. Scott boards the Enterprise to find himself lost in a world that he barely recognizes, a world that has passed him by. But soon the Enterprise finds itself trapped within the Dyson sphere and pulled into the star, and Scotty must work with Lt. Geordi La Forge to rescue the Enterprise.

Michael Jan Friedman - Robert Greenberger - Predator ​- Flesh and Blood
In ​1987, the first Predator movie was released, garnering an Oscar, huge audiences and an instantly loyal fan base. Five years later came the first of the best-selling Predator novels. What accounted for the success of the series? It combined seemingly disparate genres - science fiction, action and horror - with unforgettable characters for a fresh experience. In this novel by New York Times bestsellers, Michael Friedman and frequent writing partner Robert Greenberger, humans have all but destroyed the earth, creating an opportunity for unscrupulous moneymakers to take advantage of the destruction. One family, the Ciejek clan, have made their fortune exploiting Earth's misfortunes. But with power comes corruption. The members of the Ciejek clan are at each other's throats, enlisting the help of the fearsome Predators to settle the score. When the Predators arrive, however, the brutality they unleash is far beyond what the Ciejek family could have imagined.

Michael Jan Friedman - Eredendő ​bűn
Közel ​három évszázaddal ezelőtt a Weyland-Yutani társaság csillaghajója, a Nostromo vészjelzést fogott az Acheron nevű bolygóról. A Nostromo legénysége egy földönkívüli életformára bukkant - egy ravasz gyilkológépre, mely gyorsabb és erősebb volt mindennél, amit az emberiség addig ismert. A találkozást egyedül Ellen Ripley élte túl, aki megsemmisítette a Nostromót, és ezzel megakadályozta, hogy az idegen organizmus elérje a Földet. Nem akkor találkozott utoljára ezzel a fajjal. Most, évszázadokkal az eredeti Ripley halála után klónja folytatja a harcot. A második Ripleynek egy Call nevű android, egy brutális zsoldos, Johner és egy kerekesszékben élő mechanikus, Vriess segít végrehajtani az örökölt feladatot, kideríteni a titkot, ami borzalmasabb, mint azt bármelyikük sejtené... A legújabb Ripley-regényben, mely a "Feltámad a Halál" közvetlen folytatása Michael Jan Friedman azokat a kérdéseket feszegeti, melyek mindig ott lappangtak az idegen lényekkel kapcsolatos események hátterében. A válaszok pedig teljes mértékben megváltoztatják az Aliens univerzumot.
