I Can't Wait for... Fan Fiction by Brent Spiner

Sci-fi Books Coming Soon!

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about and have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released, but not necessarily. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was originally hosted at Breaking the Spine. 

My pick for this week is a "Mem-Noir inspired by true events" that promises to be an amusing, nostalgic exploration of fame with the cast and crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation...

 Fan Fiction
Author: Brent Spiner
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Publication Date: October 5, 2021
Genres: Science Fiction

Brent Spiner pens an explosive and hilarious novel, Fan Fiction, a personal look at the slightly askew view of the relationship between a celebrity and his fans. If the Coen Brothers were to make a Star Trek movie, involving the complexity of fan obsession and sci-fi, this noir comedy might just be the one.

Set in 1991, just as Star Trek: The Next Generation has rocketed the cast to global fame, the young and impressionable actor Brent Spiner receives a mysterious package and a series of disturbing letters, that take him on a terrifying and bizarre journey that enlists Paramount Security, the LAPD, and even the FBI in putting a stop to the danger that has his life and career hanging in the balance.

Featuring a cast of characters from Patrick Stewart to Levar Burton to Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, to some completely imagined, this is the fictional autobiography that takes readers into the life of Brent Spiner, and tells an amazing tale about the trappings of celebrity and the fear he has carried with him his entire life.

Fan Fiction is a zany love letter to a world in which we all participate, the phenomenon of “Fandom.”


  1. I'm very curious about this too! It might be too meta for me but I'm willing to try it:-)

  2. Fan Fiction sounds like such a fun read. I am looking forward to that one as well. I hope you enjoy it when you read it! Happy reading.

  3. Hmm, not sure if this is for me, but the blurb does sound interesting!
