Marvel at the (genius, terror, dumbness?) of a book about William Shatner fighting all his (beloved, reviled, begrudgingly acknowledged?) characters at a convention being held in honor of…William Shatner. Plus, Bruce Campbell is thrown in for good measure. Sounds like the perfect thing to download to your Kindle, along with paid subscriptions to newspapers and blogs you can get for free on the actual internet. But what do you care? You just paid almost $400 for a Kindle.
What version of Shatnerquake might I be willing to pay for? Why, the audiobook read haltingly by William Shatner, of course.
From the Amazon.com description:
William Shatner? William Shatner. WILLIAM SHATNER!!! 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!
I think I’ll wait for the movie…staring William Shatner.

Bill and me are great friends. In fact I modelled myself after Bill!
I’m feeling mildly…Shatnerphobic.
I saw the MTV sketch with Shatner doing a spoof of Seven, where he played himself, Kirk and TJ hooker and it was really funny, self deprecating and under four minutes. Taking the same idea and dragging it out to fill a book seems the fastest way to kill any of the remaining humour. Also, after watching My Name Is Bruce adding Bruce Campbell to the mix doesn’t sound such a hot idea either.
