86: So Much Janice Rand

Harlan Ellison's City on the Edge of Forever.

Since 1967 fans have loved The City on the Edge of Forever yet from the beginning there was controversy with writer Harlan Ellison over rewrites and was not resolved till 2009 when Ellison's lawsuit was finalized to his satisfaction. 

In this episode of Literary Treks Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by TOS expert Drew Stewart from Trek.fm's Standard Orbit. We discuss all five issues, diving into what we like and what we don't with this version of the story, then wrap up by evaluating the ending of the comic, it's impact as well as the artwork. 

In the new segment we walk through StarTrek.com's list of 2015 novels and nonfiction books, do some book cover judging and remind everyone that the Star Trek/Planet of the Apes crossover is out.
