Caveat Emptor Be aware that for omnibus volumes 3 through 12, the title of the omnibus book is taken from one of the novellas in that edition. Even though all of the novellas are still available for purchase individually, you'll save a LOT of money buying the omnibus editions. But be careful! It is easy to confuse the omnibus with the novella of the same title.
I made this mistake when I wanted to buy the third omnibus, Some Assembly Required. I didn't pay close enough attention, and I accidentally purchased the novella Some Assembly Required instead. Seeing that the omnibus version costs exactly the same as the single novella, even though the omnibus edition contains three additional novellas as well, you'll really want to steer clear of the individual novellas — except for the last 8 novellas, for which no omnibus editions exists.

If you didn't know better, you could believe that they were all written by the same person. But because of this huge variety of authors, I think there is a richness of imagination which might be harder for a single author to attain. All in all, I've been very impressed with the series and enjoying it very much. So, without further ado, here is my modified version of the now-defunct Wikipedia article Like other Star Trek books, the books are officially licensed, but not considered canon.

Most of these novellas have subsequently been reprinted in paperback and eBook omnibuses, with anywhere from three to eight stories per volume. The number of eBooks published per year would be reduced from twelve to six, to allow other series to be developed.

If that is true, some argue, how much more will people request gene modification that enhances their state of being and their performance. As of , it is not at all clear which human traits will become susceptible to enhancement by genetic engineering.
Height, most definitely, will be modifiable, but perhaps mental and emotional traits may be modifiable too. Soon you'll be able to pig out and treat your syphilis at the same time.
