From boingboing:
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.
Thanks to everyone who emailed this to me!


  1. It's like someone had a picture of Jeff and said "Let's make a book, just for this guy."

    Unless Burk is _your_ pen-name? o_O

  2. An Action Novel? The mind boggles.

  3. I'm now going to have to try entirely too hard to keep from cribbing this plot for my Traveller game. My players have put up with a lot of loopiness in that game, but I think they'd draw the line at a horde of Shatner characters invading their reality.

  4. Samuel Deats' cover painting reminds me of late-80s/early-90s Jim Holloway art in some ways, if I squint a bit :)

    The extended back-cover version is even cooler, though, since it shows young Jim Kirk holding a lightsaber.

    God bless Google :)

  5. To whom it may concern,

    I am writing because I saw your website covered the book “Shatnerquake.” I am the author and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you. It is little things like simply posting to on the internet that help out independent artists, like myself, in this era of giant crushing-corporations.

    I am also writing to let you know that on this coming Tuesday, November 17th, I will be offering “Shatnerquake” as a free download on my website ( I figured that since you covered the book in the past, your readers may be interested in knowing that they will be able to get it for free this week.

    Thank you again for your help.
