Fan Fiction: A Mem-Noir: Inspired by True Events by Brent Spiner

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Thanks to NetGalley for a free e-arc of this book.

Despite the legitimately scary subject matter of violent stalking, this was enormous fun to read. Brent Spiner’s sense of humor and wryly comedic voice shine through. His all-in-good-fun skewing and skewering of his Star Trek: The Next Generation castmates added another flavor to a blend already including noir, old Hollywood bedroom comedy, and absurdism. On the whole, this is more Who Framed Roger Rabbit than Raymond Chandler, so if you’re coming for some straight dark noir with the “inspired by true events” memoir shading, you’ve got another thing coming. But if you like a good mash up and want some deftly-written Real Person Fic, this is the book for you.
