Zombies in September

I'm starting to gather books to highlight for September Zombies week for later this year.

Save the month:
(OK - Fishmuffins of Doom has convinced me)

September Zombies will last the whole month!
September 1-30, 2010

The recent announcement of this latest zombie book mashup has got me excited to say that it will most definitely be part of the line-up...

Night of the Living Trekkies
by Kevin David Anderson

Release date: September 4, 2010

The book cover is not yet available but these images of zombie Spock and zombie Kirk created by Art of Molitorious are awesome and maybe should be considered???

Description from article post on Trek Today excerpt:
“It’s a zombie apocalypse and only one thing matters: What would Captain Kirk do?” Fans will find out this September when Night of the Living Trekkies is released.

“Just as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies blended monster mayhem with the world of regency romance, Night of the Living Trekkies mixes a zombie apocalypse with the enduring mythology of Star Trek.”

The story follows a group of “Trekkies,” dressed in homemade uniforms, who are en route to an annual convention. “These fanboys know more than any rational adult should know about Kirk, Spock, Next Generation, particle physics, and black holes,” writes Anderson.

“But when aliens release a zombie plague upon the Earth, all of this “Starfleet training” suddenly becomes a lot more relevant. Our fanboys find themselves trapped in the Botany Bay Hotel and Convention Center—and desperate to escape.

And one reluctant fan will discover his inner Trekkie, rise up, and take command of the crew. Fast, funny, and loaded with countless references to Star Trek, geek culture, and science fiction conventions, Night of the Living Trekkies will appeal to anyone who enjoys science fiction, horror, and the comic scene.”


PPZ: Dawn of the Dreadfuls book trailer from Quirk
--Just as entertaining as the Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters trailer
--Captures the story well (my review of book)!
