Actor, singer, author, hair club poster child-William Shatner is all these things and more. So what if he’s never won an Emmy, his singing isn’t really singing, his books are ghostwritten for him, and his hairpieces are the subjects of widespread ridicule? To Trekkers and loyal fans alike, he is The Supreme Being. From Star Trek to T. J. Hooker, from Rescue 911 to TekWar, fans have maintained their loyalty to him and his work. He is a pop culture icon who has dared, many times, to go where no man has gone before. Now, with The Encyclopedia Shatnerica you can go there with him. You’ll discover the strange details of his encounter with a UFO while riding his motorcycle through the Mojave Desert-an experience which later inspired him to record a psychedelic rock album. This unusual book contains all the facts, trivia, and other tidbits you’ll ever want to know about William Shatner.
Formatted in easy-to-use A to Z entries, this encyclopedia volume contains Web site and fan club information, quotes from Shatner, his friends, and colleagues, and a time-line of his personal life. For the first time, it reveals all the essential facts about William Shatner, in front of and behind the camera.
Other books may detail the factual and fictional universe of Star Trek, but in no single place can one find reliable yet irreverent coverage of the wide world of William Shatner-Star Trek’s most popular star. There is simply no other book like The Encyclopedia Shatnerica.
