Book Review: Night of the Living Trekkies

For Top Ten Novels Blogfest see post immediately below.

If Shatnerquake by Jeff Burk is the low-budget third series episode from Star Trek: The Original Series, Night of the Living Trekkies is several classic second season episodes put together - think Amok Time and The Trouble with Tribbles. Night of the Living Trekkies is the superior intellect.

At 253 pages this is novel, as opposed to the the 83-page novella that was Shatnerquake, and is a book that appeals on many levels:

  1. Star Trek fans will love it. Think of a Star Trek convention where the characters are really put in dangers way; watch out all you redshirts!

  2. Zombie fans will love it - another zombie genre has been born.

  3. Star Wars fans may love it, but I doubt it. Know any Star Wars fans? Send them this for Christmas and really annoy them.

I would recommend this book as a must read for all zombie and Star Trek fans, and even if you don't know anything about either genre, you should still enjoy it.
