"Night Of The Living Trekkies" Explores Trek Fan & Zombie Horde Possibilities

"Night Of The Living Trekkies" Explores Trek Fan & Zombie Horde Possibilities

A brand new scifi / horror mashup book from Quirk Fiction is now available for pre-order.  Called "Night of the Living Trekkies" and written by Kevin David Anderson & Sam Stall, the work explores the possibility of a zombie horde attacking a full blown Trek con.  The raddest part of the book, the Trek fan mob turns the tables on the undead by using skills learned from watching our favorite scifi series.

Quirk Fiction also just released the cover art for the book.  We see an undead trek fan in an original series tunic holding the disembodied arm of an apparent Vulcan from the con.  Ya see, the poor chap's hand is still in the Vulcan salute.  This concept sounds like a riot and we'll definitely be picking up a copy once it becomes available.

"Night of the living Trekkie"s synopsis

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.
