Upon seeing Night of the Living Trekkies
the Spanish edition

La noche de los trekkies vivientes

Kevin David Anderson was born in Indiana, and currently lives and writes speculative fiction in Southern California. Before becoming a full-time writer and active member of the HWA, Anderson earned a B. A. in Mass Communication (TCOM) with a focus on Media Production from CSUF, and worked as a marketing professional for more than a decade, during which he managed award-winning campaigns for both television and radio.

Anderson’s debut novel, Night of the Living Trekkies, from Quirk Books, the publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is a funny, offbeat Zombie novel that explores the pop culture carnage that ensues when the undead crash a Star Trek convention. Publishers Weekly gave Night of the Living Trekkies a starred review and the Washington Post listed it as one of the top five Zombie novels of 2010.

“A fun, highly readable action tale packed with obscure Trek references, all wrapped in a sturdy, fast-paced and cinematic story.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Shock Room

"…offers plenty of wit with its alien-infested corpses." —Yvonne Zipp, The Washington Post

"Written in tounge-and-cheek style, Night of the Living Trekkies is a fast-paced, fun-filled, 256 pages of undead action."  —Jason Tonks, Fangoria

In his follow up novel, Night of the ZomBEEs, Anderson dives into YA with a Zombie Comedy that mashes together James Bond fandom with Apiphobia – the fear of bees.

Anderson’s short stories have appeared in more than eighty publications including the Bram Stoker nominated anthology, The Beauty of Death (from Independent Legions Publishing). His latest releases are contributions to the Halloween edition of Unnerving Magazine, the anthology California’ Screamin’ from the San Diego chapter of the Horror Writers Association, and the upcoming anthologies Automobilia and the post-Trump presidency-inspired collection, After the Orange. His short story collection, Night Sounds, will debut at Mid Summer Scream July, 2018 in Long Beach California with an introduction by voice talent and creator of the Horror Hill Podcast, Jason Hill.

With a lifelong passion for monsters, the walking dead, and all things that go bump in the night, Anderson was a guest at the first-ever Zombie Culture convention, ZomBcon held in Seattle 2010, with other zombie / horror genre icons like George A. Romero, Bruce Campbell, and Max Brooks.
