About a Possible Third Issue

From an ebay seller in 2007: "This novel [(Trusting the Spirit)] started out as a novelette that was meant for the 3rd in the wonderful TWILIGHT TREK series (Trek meets the TWILIGHT ZONE). Sadly, TT2 was the last, but the author listened to Kirk & Spock, and the story grew into a novella, then a novel, then quite a long novel."
