In addition to the obvious public encyclopedic reference, the Library of Congress can also be a good place to find pseudonyms, though it’s usually not *quite* as exhaustive.

(PAD is in there as “David, Peter (Peter Allan)” and “Peters, David, 1956-“)

I’ll chime in with a third on How Much for Just the Planet. Very fun, very funny. I’ve read a bunch of these, and I think this one is pretty the only one I still have and reread every once in a while.

Also, Ice bear and Another Fucking Dyson Sphere for the win.

HI-frakkin’-larious. And the ‘shops look so realistic, it took me a second or two to realize they WERE ‘shops.

Maybe it’s just that I got into the Star Trek thing late (TNG was already in repeats and I didn’t watch much of the franchise after that) or that I just wasn’t “that” kind of geek, but these don’t seem very funny to me.
You had me busting up snort-laughing and choking down giggles in the middle of a silent library with the other ones. Do more of those! I’m sure there’s more crappy sci-fi/fantasy out there!

“Another Fucking Dyson Sphere” — I would actually read that book.

I’ll be the fourth giving thumbs up for “How Much for Just the Planet?” — it’s hilarious. Though I don’t think I caught the Neil Gaiman cameo before… this means I have to re-read it!

These are so funny!
What’s really scary is the fact that I own all of the Next Generation books and I’ve read most of the other ones too.

I’m ashamed to say I was about halfway through this list before I realised they were parodies…it’s early, ok? And I have a fever.

It was ‘My Spock, My Pimp’ that gave it away, but my favourite is ‘Kirk-on-Kirk’. Slash!novel.

For the record, Peter David and Daffyd ab Hugh are two different people, both of whom I’ve met in the flesh.

For the other record, the only time Peter David wrote under a pseudonym was when he was asked to come up with a “house name” for two series (Photon and Psi-Man) that the publisher planned to use multiple authors for. David pointed out that it was unlikely more books would follow his, but they insisted on a house name for the series. So he published it under “David Peters”. Because he wanted his contempt for the idea to be obvious.
