Treks Not Taken
What If Stephen King, Anne Rice, Kurt Vonnegut, and Other Literary Greats Had Written Episodes of Star Trek, the Next Generation?Book - 1998
Gathers parodies of the television series written in the style of Salinger, Conrad, Rand, Joyce, Hemingway, Melville, and Dr. Seuss
Parody: The Final Frontier
Now you can cruise the most hilarious sector of the space-time continuum, with this collection of twenty Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes not by the leading lights of the Western literary tradition: James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Jackie Collins...
Steven Boyett transports you into the sort of alternative universes and avid reader or Trekker would love:
- a Clancy-like realm where the Enterprise crew mobilizes to fix Captain Picard's broken watch
- a Heller-esque domain where you can only get out of Starfleet if you're crazy--and, if you want to get out of Starfleet, you're clearly not crazy
- a Collins-ish netherworld where Counselor Demanda Troi sleeps and shops her way around the galaxy
- a Melvillean place where Moby Trek lies in wait
...and many more.
Boldly go where no one has gone before with this stellar combination of high art and high comedy.
