Have you voted yet for the April New Author Mini-Challenge? It’s going to be a battle royale, yet I have no clue who will be competing yet. That’s up to you.

Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin David Anderson is a new story telling the tale of what would happen if an undead horde of zombies were to suddenly attack a Star Trek Fanboy convention.
