I've never been a fan of Star Trek; just never watched it. However, I've always respected Trekkies and their devotion to the deep-space phenomenon. However, I am a fan of horror, zombies being one of my favorites, so I can't wait to read this. The cover, in the style of a Hardy Boys (side note: look at this!) or Nancy Drew novels, is particularly striking. Who doesn't love dead Spock holding an arm doing the Vulcan salute (yes, I had to look that up)?
The Facebook fan page has this to say about Night of the Living Zombies:
"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').
|"Of course you don't understand. You don't have the brains to understand. All you have is printed circuits...and I'll eat them, too!"|
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!"
|"Live long and prosper...but not for long!"|
