Night of the Living Trekkies

This sci-fi/zombie/comedy/adventure follows a group of rag-tag Trekkies getting together for the fifth annual GulfCon (billed as the “largest Starfleet Convention in the western Gulf Coast region”). Our heroes are dressed in homemade uniforms and armed with prop phasers-but soon find themselves defending their hotel and convention center against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Suddenly, all of their useless knowledge about particle physics and old Star Trek episodes has genuine real-world applications! And while hotel employees and regular civilians are dying left and right, our Trekkies summon strength and courage by emulating their favorite starship-voyaging characters. Packed with hundreds of gags referencing Star Trek, Star Wars, comic books, and fan conventions, Night of the Living Trekkies reads like the strange lovechild of Galaxy Quest and Dawn of the Dead.

Journey to the final frontier of zombie science-fiction satire! KEVIN DAVID ANDERSON and SAM STALL are lifelong Trekkies. Mr. Anderson lives in California and Mr. Stall lives in Indianapolis.

This deserves better than Cicero's De finibus bonorum et malorum! I've seen the ST movies (including Turist Ömer Uzay Yolunda!), a number of episodes of ST and ST:NG, a few of DS9, but not the animated series, Voyager, or Enterprise, or the books, games, etc. Maybe there are a lot of gags only a Trekker would get, but even as a more casual fan I did enjoy the book and will be passing it around friends who I am sure will enjoy it too.

Might be one of the best action, Zombie, Star Trek jokes packed 'geek' books of all time. I couldn't stop reading it! I had to get to the end! Oh, and I loved it!

This is the best zombie themed book I have ever read and I am a huge trekkie fan. It was a joy to read it as the writers are clearly either trekkies themselves or have really done their research. I hope Quirk books will consider puting this book (and many other books published by them) in a tablet format so I can always have a copy handy with me!

Are there hardcover editions of your fiction books? I am talking about the reworked classics as well as the Trekkies book. Thank you.
