If you like Star Trek and zombies, there’s a book for that. I’m not sure how good the audiobook would be, even after listening to the sample MP3 below, but I am sure the book trailer is most excellent.
Night Of The Living Trekkies
By Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall; Read by Zach McLarty
Audible Download – Approx. 6 Hours 41 Minutes [UNABRIDGED]
Publisher: Random House Audio
Published: August 2010
This sci-fi /zombie/comedy/adventure follows a group of rag-tag Trekkies getting together for the fifth annual FedCon (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, 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 mash-ups!
