Local writer Jeff Burk's new book, Shatnerquake: An Action Novel, just arrived at the Mercury offices. My reaction could best be described as "unrestrained giddiness." I'm gonna read Shatnerquake over the weekend, so expect a review on the blog next week—but in the meantime, just to whet your Shatner-tite, here's the cover art (above) and the back cover text (below). Both are things of beauty.

After a reality bomb goes off at the first-ever ShatnerCon, 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, Priceline Shatner, Cartoon Kirk, Rescue 9-1-1 Shatner, Singer Shatner, and many more. No costumed con-goer will be spared in their wave of destruction, no red shirt 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.
