Quirk Books has released a new & somewhat gory book trailer (embedded above) for Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin David Anderson. The publisher acquired the book in March, continuing its pop culture spree that began with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Here’s the pitch: “It’s Galaxy Quest meets Dawn of the Dead when all hell breaks loose at a Star Trek convention–and the world’s only hope for survival rests in the hands of some very determined fanboys!” Quirk Books’ associate publisher Jason Rekulak edited, and the deal was negotiated by Scott Miller at Trident Media Group.
We caught up with Rekulak to find out why he picked the book. He explained: “I’ve always felt that a giant convention of fanboys (like the San Diego Comic Con) would be a delightful setting for some kind of genre fiction–mystery, romance, horror, something. Then the manuscript for NIGHT OF THE LIVING TREKKIES landed on my desk, and I knew I had my book.”
