The late Janet Kagan wrote, as best I can tell, the following:
One "Star Trek" novel, because the person willing to publish her real novel could not accept new author submissions except for Star Trek novels. I haven't read it, though it gets good reviews from the people who review such things.
One real novel, Hellspark.
One fixup novel, Mirabile
A handful of non-Mirabile short stories.

The Mirabile stories are charming fun. I haven't read any of the other stories. Hellspark is a classic -- one of those word-of-mouth treasures that never seemed to be in print. It is science fiction, but the sciences at center stage are linguistics, anthropology, and cognitive science. If it has a flaw, it is that the central premise is sometimes unsubtle, but this is more than made up for by the telling.

I would trade the complete works of many popular (and enjoyable!) sf authors for one more Kagan work.

I feel more and more these days like Sisyphus. Every time I think I have at least listed the remaining major "possibles" candidates, up pops another to look over. I'll be doing some homework and probably, in consequence, adding her to that ever-growing list.

The same poem that speaks of "world enough, and time" observes that "At my back I always hear / Time's wing`ed chariot hurrying near". Indeed.
