Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found) is a Pocket DS9 eBook written by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann. Published by Pocket Books, it was first released in September 2014.

The novella features Quark on the new Deep Space 9 (β) space station after the events of Star Trek: The Fall.


From the book jacket
Business is down at Quark's Public House, Café, Gaming Emporium, Holosuite Arcade, and Ferengi Embassy to Bajor. Way down. Lower level of hell down. The station is bustling, but residents and visitors are spending more time (and latinum) at the new Deep Space 9's park, sports fields, theater, swimming complex, and who knows what else, than they are at Quark's establishment. All of Quark's misfortunes just could be reversed, however, when he finds out that one of the steamiest holonovels to hit the Alpha Quadrant in years is up for grabs. And he has an inroad to acquiring it before anyone else. Or does he?
