Attack of the Shatner clones


Forget Chuck Norris. William Shatner is so bad he can kick his own ass – a dozen times over.

Just read the description of the Jeff Burk action novel, “Shatnerquake“:

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!

No costumed con-goer will be spared in their wave of destruction, no redshirt 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.

It’s Shatnertastic!

Though the book is only 100 pages, the storyline sounds like it might just be bizarre enough for someone like Charlie “Being John Malkovich, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Adaptation” Kaufman to adapt into a screenplay.
