NIGHT OF THE LIVING TREKKIES Book Trailer

Quirk Books, the publisher behind books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, have created yet another awesome book trailer. This time it’s for Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall, a book that imagines a zombie apocalypse that begins at a Comic Con type convention. My favorite lines from the trailer: “This is highly illogical!” and “He does know he’s not a real Klingon, right?”

So if you don’t mind a lot of gore, check out the trailer for Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall:

Publisher’s summary of Night of the Living Trekkies:

Journey to the Final Frontier of Sci-Fi Zombie Horror!

Jim Pike was the world’s biggest Star Trek fan—until two tours of duty in Afghanistan destroyed his faith in the human race. Now he sleepwalks through life as the assistant manager of a small hotel in downtown Houston.

But when hundreds of Trekkies arrive in his lobby for a science-fiction convention, Jim finds himself surrounded by costumed Klingons, Vulcans, and Ferengi—plus a strange virus that transforms its carriers into savage, flesh-eating zombies!

As bloody corpses stumble to life and the planet teeters on the brink of total apocalypse, Jim must deliver a ragtag crew of fanboys and fangirls to safety. Dressed in homemade uniforms and armed with prop phasers, their prime directive is to survive. But how long can they last in the ultimate no-win scenario?

    I love this concept. incorporating classic literature into pop culture is a fantastic way to keep the stories alive.
