Author's Comments

My earliest Trek story posted on line was "Blues For Allah," which is a shuttle crash story where Uhura gets to shine and save the day. No naughty bits but I got a shitpot of feedback for it and I was *hooked*. That was posted in, hmm, I think November of 1996. [1]

Reactions and Reviews

Really enjoyed this story (Uhura and Spock, yay!), loved his second story too (The Music Never Stopped) and absolutely *adored* his most recent post. Greywolf's stories only get better, and they are so rich in atmosphere, mood and subtlety that they demand repeated reading. I'm definitely saving Music... for next Christmas. Can't think of a better way to get in the mood! [2]
I stumbled across Dejanews, and started searching that for every keyword I could imagine. I wish I could remember more of what I found early on, but one story in particular that sticks out in my memory is "Twenty Questions." I also found Greywolf's "Blues for Allah," in which Spock and Uhura get marooned after a shuttlecraft crash. Although I didn't go away from that story thinking, "Gee, Spock and Uhura would make a nice couple," I'm sure that the seeds must have been planted. [3]
