Insight Editions' latest Star Trek book is another parody. Due out in July, Star Trek: Redshirt's Little Book of Doom puts a humorous spotlight on everyone's favorite luckless men and women... those Starfleet folks sporting red shirts, and it does so through the eyes of one poor fellow. Robb Pearlman (Fun with Kirk and Spock, The Wit and Wisdom of Star Trek) and Anna-Maria Jung (a freelance illustrator from Graz, Austria) teamed up for Redshirt's Little Book of Doom, with Pearlman as writer and Jung as illustrator. Here's the synopsis from Insight Editions:
This new book from the author of Fun with Kirk and Spock casts a wry, satirical eye on one of the most popular sci-fi sagas of all time.
In the successful tradition of adult pop culture humor books like Stuck on Star Trek, A Very Klingon Christmas, and the author’s own Fun with Kirk and Spock, Star Trek: Redshirt's Little Book of Doom casts a wry, satirical, and reverential eye on one of the most popular and well-loved television and film franchises of all time.
Poor Red Shirt just can’t catch a break. Whether he's dealing with real-life problems we all face like accidentally mixing whites with colors or being stuck sitting behind a very tall Gorn in a movie theater or trying out a standup comedy routine in front of an audience of surly Klingons, our hapless hero faces a universe-sized number of obstacles.
The book will run 64 pages and cost $13.27 when it's available on July 19. Go to www.amazon.com to pre-order it.
