Just read: «Night of the Living Trekkies»

During my vacation I read the first two books Game of Thrones (magnificent! I loved it! Now I finally can watch the TV show. :-)) and two Pratchetts, but Game of Thrones and Pratchett are known enough as it is. Something that I bet isn’t as widely known is the first book I read during my vacation: «Night of the Living Trekkies» by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall.  It’s a mixture of Star Trek (from the fans point of view in the current time) and the zombie genre, which I’m really new to. Without knowing much about zombie movies and books, it seems to be the typical story, mixed in with a bunch of guys at a Star Trek convention, trying to survive. I like those parody books and it is especially fun to find it mixed into another genre. An example of the books style, I want to show you two things. The first is the disclaimer at the beginning:

Image at the beginning of the book

ATTENTION ALL STARFLEET PERSONNEL

The following text is an original work of fiction/horror/parody. Night of the Living Trekkies is not sponsored by, affiliated with, or endorsed by the owners of the Star Trek® brand. Any personnel claiming otherwise will be sentenced to one year of hard labor in the penal colony of Rura Penthe.

And the second thing is this image you can find also at the beginning of the book here on the right. Those two things were enough for me to buy this book and if you like Star Trek or maybe Zombies, you should too! 🙂
