Arrangement of the Collection

Materials are arranged by the series the books were written for (chronologically) then chronologically within the series (except for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer chapter, which is first due to space considerations.) Record cartons are arranged by series, and title within series.

Scope and Content

Manuscripts, galleys and e-mails written and edited in support of books by Christie Golden (see container list for titles). The books are both original creations (A. D. 999, King's Man and Thief, Instrument of Fate) and novels written in support of established series (Star Trek, Ravenloft, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Warcraft.) The collection also contains notes and reference materials gathered in support of the writing, including materials on the Celts, the Anglo Saxons, English history, religion, mythology, paganism, and various aspects of science.

An addition to the collection in 2012 added manuscripts from Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi, Starcraft, and World of Warcraft, as well as several original novels published under the name Jaina Proudmoore.


Biography / History

Award-winning author Christie Golden has written twenty-five novels and several short stories in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror. She has over a million books in print.

Golden is also the author of two original fantasy novels from Ace Books, King's Man and Thief and Instrument of Fate, which made the 1996 Nebula Preliminary Ballot. Under the pen name of Jadrien Bell, she wrote a historical fantasy thriller entitled A.D. 999, which won the Colorado Author's League Top Hand Award for Best Genre Novel of 1999.

Golden launched the TSR Ravenloft line in 1991 with her first novel, the highly successful Vampire of the Mists, which introduced elven vampire Jander Sunstar. Golden followed up Vampire with Dance of the Dead and The Enemy Within.

Other projects include a slew of Star Trek novels, among them The Murdered Sun, Marooned, and Seven of Nine, and "The Dark Matters Trilogy," Cloak and Dagger, Ghost Dance and Shadow of Heaven.

The Voyager novel relanch, which includes Homecoming and The Farther Shore, were bestsellers and were the fastest-selling Trek novels of 2003. Golden has continued writing VOYAGER novels even though the show is off the air, and is eager to explore the creative freedom that gives her.

Golden has also written the novelization of Steven Spielberg's Invasion America and an original "prequel," On The Run, both of which received high praise from producer Harve Bennett.
