Shatnerquake, the novel whose premise is more entertaining than most full stories

"William Shatner? William Shatner. William Shatner!"

The novel "Shatnerquake" is pretty pander-riffic, written particularly for nerds and pop culture enthusiasts who find Shatner's aura irresistible and addictive. In the novel, set in some sort of peculiar alternate universe, William Shatner is forced to battle every character he's ever played.
Featuring: Captain Kirk, TJ Hooker, Denny Crane, Rescue 911 Shatner, Singer Shatner, Shakespearean Shatner, Twilight Zone Shatner, Cartoon Kirk, Esperanto Shatner, Priceline Shatner, SNL Shatner, and - of course - William Shatner!
Obviously that list leaves out quite a few entries, and doesn't consist entirely of "characters he has played" (if "singer Shatner" makes the list, why not "Tekwar Shatner"?). Still, it's a pretty compelling promise that practically writes itself.

But before it's too late, our wonderful nation needs to create the television show where Adam West and William Shatner, playing themselves, live together in a small New York apartment and solve crimes. Co-starring Christopher Walken as their kooky neighbor!
