Sandeep Parikh as Gary

Last Saturday I finished up the first of two BORDERS’ Night of the Living Trekkies book signing in Southern California, and I learned that the only thing I like more than writing about a zombie outbreak at a Star Trek convention is meeting people who love to READ about a zombie outbreak at a Star Trek convention. Talking zombies, Star Trek and Sci-fi with people that live eat and breathe those genres is more fun than a Klingon Feast, or even tribble lined underwear. I got a dozen suggestions for sequel titles, scenarios, new characters, and a lot of urging for the follow up to have more Star Wars!

Questions ranged from, did we research everything or were we fanboys enough to know what a Lurpa was, to did Elvis Borgsley survive? But I think that the most common question I got over and over was, when is the movie coming out?!. With at least half of the folks that stopped by first having heard of Night of the Living Trekkies because of the amazing book trailer that debuted on YouTube in September, there seemed to be a lot of interest in seeing Trekkies on the big screen. Some even gave me actor suggestions as if Sam or I would be in charge of casting the film. So on that note, if you were in charge of casting for Night of the Living Trekkies, who would you want to play, Jim, Rayna, and the rest of the crew?

Next signing for Night of the Living Trekkies will be October 23rd, at the Riverside Plaza BORDERS, in Riverside Ca, starting at 4pm.
Address - 3615 Riverside Plaza Drive
Riverside, CA 92506

Shoot for the head, and prosper!

Are You Ready to Prosper!!

Fangoria - America's Horror Magazine gave Night of the Living Trekkies a wonderful review. Which you can read here.
The first of two book signings in Southern Ca. is coming up - This Saturday, October 16th at the BORDERS in Mira Loma, beginning at 2pm. I visited the story today and was very impressed. There is Night of the Living Trekkies promotional posters up, and an entire end-cap dedicated to Quirk's latest mash-up novel. It's also in a beautiful location and my son really enjoyed the Toys R'us outlet store next door. And truth be told, so did I.
