I started Teklords expecting a truly atrocious piece of work. I figured I probably wouldn’t even be able to finish it, as Shatner would no doubt inflict all sorts of terrible writing and sex scenes on us. The preface appeared to presage horror, as it was written in Shatner’s own staccato phrasing (“Imagine... [ellipsis in original] a sequel, continuity, progression. Why? Sales, reviews, terrific. Who? Ron Goulart – witty, wise, ingenious…And next? Guess”). I wondered uneasily if the entire book would be written thus. While it would be amusing to imagine the book as an Orbitz commercial, I feared that the novelty would quickly pall.

Imagine my surprise to find that Teklords is actually a moderately well-written [considering what I'd expected, that is], fast-paced, entertaining mystery with an interesting implementation of sci-fi tropes and only a handful of plot holes.

I...I...I liked it.

I’m so ashamed.
