I've never read any horror novels or zombie books before (except for World War Z, which is about the aftermath more than the actual zombie invasion) so I don't know how Night of the Living Trekkies compares, but I thought it was fun and had a lot of good Trek and general sci-fi references. Naming every chapter after a Star Trek episode title was a nice touch.

Stardust surprised me with how different it was from the movie. Captain Shakespeare isn't in the book at all, which is quite disappointing as he was one of my favorite characters, and the ending is much more dramatic and dangerous in the movie than the book. Still it was a very nice fairy tale and a lot of fun to read.
