    what, no William Shatner-as-Alexander the Great?

  2. MarkM says:

    Im staring at that book cover, squinting, trying to see how that can resemble william shatner. my brain doesn’t recognize that representation.

  3. hubbledeej says:

    Sorta like the plot for White Comanche!

  4. Sparrow says:

    But does it have William F***ing Shatner? (I’m sure I’ll buy it anyway.)

  5. thecheat says:

    I would like to go on record as having bought this . Amazon makes it too easy to impulse buy and I don’t even have 1-click turned on.

    I told my wife about it, she said, “You don’t ever have to worry about me borrowing THAT one.”

    Looking forward to reading this!

  6. MichaelRN says:

    Is there a Priceline Shatner in it, too?

  7. Robbo says:

    Looking forward to the film version.

    Shatner, of course, would love to do it – playing all the parts. Campbell would be in for sure. But it would be even more deliciously awesome if they hired Drew Carey and had Kevin Pollak do the voice.

    Or maybe get Zemekis to direct and do the whole thing in CG – not cuz it would be cool but just so we get those awful pictures of Bill in a blue spandex mocap leotard.

    That was too much.

    I have to go lie down now.

    Never mind. Just read the Amazon reviews. Of course there is. Want.

  10. Snig says:

    I’m guessing when one Shatner meets another, the first thing they do is size up each others hairpiece. I wonder if Tim Allen’s character from Galaxy Quest is involved.

    No 3rd rock Shatner?

  12. Blaine says:

    Dear GOD, why isn’t there an ebook version of it??

    I should be on the 5th page by now!!

  13. Ratdog says:


    I’m telling Shatner what you said about him!!

    WOW published fan fiction.

  15. ZippySpincycle says:

    Shatner. I’d fight William Shatner.

  16. igpajo says:

    I want my copy signed buy William Shatner!

  17. TheRedMax says:

    This was kind of already done a few years ago in a spoof/advert thing entitled SEVEN which featured T.J. Hooker, Captain Kirk and Rescue 911 Shatner reenacting the final scene from Se7en.

    You can get your fix of multiple shatners here:

  18. Phikus says:

    Does it include our favorite Shatner, the chocolaty one?

    We MUST hear what Bill has to say about this!

  20. Samurai Gratz says:

    Oh my, that is funny. Kudos to the author and to Eraserhead Press.

    Don’t forget Shatner the Chairman from IRON CHEF!!

  22. Ratdog says:

    I’m actually crying it is so beautiful.

  23. Anonymous says:

    I wanna see this same concept with Kevin Bacon.

  24. daneyul says:

    Esperanto Shatner!

    That alone is worth the price of admission.

  25. Bemopolis says:

    This has got to be the stupidest goddam idea for a book that I have seen in a long time. It is, of course, now in my shopping cart.

    I will need GlaxoSmithKline to rush development of a memory-wiping drug so that, once I finish reading it, I will be able to read it again with an identical amount of surprise and delight as the first time.


  26. Brainspore says:

    A better title would have been Shatstorm.

  27. Snig says:

    I’ll only get it if it has $20,000 pyramid Shatner

  28. Anonymous says:

    Yes, but who is the real Shatner??

    That guy, is the worst actor ever!

  29. TroofSeeker says:

    My son is gonna love this! He’s a real Campbellian (last time I looked in his room, yesterday, Bruce was on the TV!) I think he’s a little frightened and confused by Shatner.
    The boys have always known him as Uncle Bill. He only stops by when he needs something- use the phone, couple bucks for gas, or just laying low. He got in a fight with our dog once over a big beef rib bone.
    We would never leave our sons alone in the room with him.

  30. iamcantaloupe says:

    ZippySpinCycle @19: Yes Jack, but how many Shats do you think you can handle at once?

    Also, IRT the “Seven” clip: effing win on the Star Trek door “woosh” sound.

  31. Ignatz says:

    Nanuq, Daneyul: the answer is simple. They would all succumb to the might of the Big Giant Head.

  32. nosehat says:

    Concept: 5 out of 5!
    Execution: Remains to be seen.

  33. Darren Garrison says:

    Likely a load of Shat.

  34. EH says:


  35. whisper dog says:

    Malkovich Malkovich?

    Denny Crane is already capable of breaking the fourth wall with his cow-given mental powers, what would happen if he were able to move from one fictional universe to another?

  37. headfirstonly says:

    Thanks, Cory – that just resulted in yet another buying spree on Amazon. I’m trying to cut down, but a book that features Bruce Campbell *and* William Shatner is going to end up on my bookshelves eventually.

  38. Anonymous says:

    @21, that clip of Shatawesome was done for the MTV movie awards way back when.

  39. Anonymous says:

    I’m almost afraid to read this book – the concept is so utterly brilliant, it’s almost impossible to live up to. I kind of feel like I should just worship it without actually reading.

    Alas, I can’t do that, I have to find out for myself.

  40. Captain Thorgak says:

    What about a “Prey for the Wilcats” William Shatner? That is the true acid test of the Shatner Geekdom of this novel…

  41. CyberspaceCowboy says:

    I could not help myself. I bought the book.

  42. VICTOR JIMENEZ says:

    I cant describe how I feel now!
    Shatner and Campbell!!!! ÔÔ

  43. Phikus says:

    Theredmax@21: FTMFW!

  44. mattofdoom says:

    I would have called it “Shatnerproof”

  45. nanuq says:

    Interesting intellectual exercise: If you put James T. Kirk, T.J. Hooker, and Denny Crane in the same room, who would come out alive?

  46. jimh says:

    PICTURE yourself… in a BOAT. On a RIVER!

  47. Ratdog says:

    I would only like it if they had Kevin Bacon’s character from Tremors.

    On another note:
    I am saddened they have left out a couple of Shatners.

  48. Jonathan Badger says:

    I’m surprised that you’d endorse such a blatant pandering to anti-Campbellian prejudice. We are a peaceful creed and would never resort to terrorism, even to save the world from Shatner’s ego.

  49. daneyul says:

    Hey, it’s not just Crane, Hooker and Kirk:

    “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!”
