I'm not entirely sure! Haha! But the little tidbits I do know sound delightful. It soudns like the real, current-day Shatner goes to a convention and gets in to some trouble with a Star Trek-day clone version of himself. Yup, delightful.
Hey, I'm Jeff Burk, the author of "Shatnerquake." Thanks so much for such a great cover! I was thrilled when I saw it.
Captain Kirk with a lightsaber does happen in the book. Why? You have to read it to find out. It will be out by the end of April. It is available to preorder at [link]
For anyone interested, here's a description of the book:
It's Shatner VS Shatners!
It's the first ShatnerCon with William Shatner as the guest of honor! But after a failed terrorist attack by Campbellians, a crazy terrorist cult that worships Bruce Campbell, all of the characters ever played by William Shatner are suddenly sucked into our world. Their mission: hunt down and destroy the real William Shatner.
Featuring: Captain Kirk, TJ Hooker, Denny Crane, Rescue 911 Shatner, Singer Shatner, Shakespearean Shatner, Twilight Zone Shatner, Cartoon Kirk, Esperanto Shatner, Priceline Shatner, SNL Shatner, and - of course - William Shatner!
No costumed con-goer will be spared in their wave of destruction, no redshirt will make it out alive, and not even the Klingons will be able to stand up to a deranged Captain Kirk with a lightsaber. But these Shatner-clones are about to learn a hard lesson that the real William Shatner doesn't take crap from anybody. Not even himself.
Yeah, they just asked for that specifically for some reason; I don't know exactly why, but I do know that at least part of the book takes place at a convention so I imagine it has something to do with that. :
