Fan Fiction: A Mem-Noir: Inspired by True Events
Author: Brent Spiner with Jeanne Darst
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Released: October 5, 2021
Are you a fan of Brent Spiner? If so, then I imagine you’ve been waiting for the release of Fan Fiction: A Mem-Noir. As the title indicates, it is inspired by true events, and I can’t be the only one curious about that, now can I?
Fan Fiction takes a closer look at the relationship between fans and their idols – but this time, the perspective is from one of those idols. Brent Spiner offers a unique look at the industry, one that fans of his (and of Star Trek) are sure to enjoy.
Admittedly, Fan Fiction is really better suited for fans of the series – what a shock, I know. I still think newcomers will find something to appreciate here, though not nearly as much as the fans who grew up loving Star Trek.
The thing I loved the most about Fan Fiction was the blending of fiction with non-fiction. Some moments felt like behind-the-scenes sneak peeks, while others were very much out of this world. Okay, not literally, but you get what I’m saying.
Fan Fiction was a highly entertaining read, one that is the oddest and most unique thing I’ve read in a long time. I loved it for that reason and would recommend it to any of my Trekkie friends.
