William Shatner Battles Himself

516uDz7F9iL._SL500_AA240_.jpgCould William Shatner beat William Shatner in a fight? This and other mind-bending questions are answered in a funny book that pits the famous actor against filmed versions of himself.

Daily Beast looks at Jeff Burk‘s new comedy book, “Shatnerquake.” The novella clocks in at 100-pages, and includes a special message for the actor: “P.S. Please don’t sue me.”

Here’s more from the article: “[Fictional fans] engineer a device that magically brings Shatner’s various dramatic alter-egos to life…with a thirst for murder, of course. As the night from hell progresses, Shatner must outsmart-and out-massacre–his own body of work, including Kirk, Hooker, Crane, Singing Shatner, Priceline Shatner, Rescue 911 Shatner, Twilight Zone Shatner (‘colored like a black and white TV show…in a constant state of nervous breakdown’) and even Animated Shatner.”
