Up Till Now
After almost sixty years as an actor, William Shatner has become one of the most beloved entertainers in the world. And it seems as if Shatner is everywhere. In Up Till Now, Shatner sits down with readers and offers the remarkable, full story of his life and explains how he got to be, well, everywhere. It was the original Star Trek series, and later its films, that made Shatner instantly recognizable, called by name---or at least by Captain Kirk's name---across the globe. But Shatner neither began nor has ended his career with that role. From the very start, he took his skills as an actor and put them to use wherever he could. He straddled the classic world of the theater and the new world of television, whether stepping in for Christopher Plummer in Shakespeare's Henry V or staring at "something on the wing" in a classic episode of The Twilight Zone. And since then, he's gone on to star in numerous successful shows, such as T.J. Hooker, Rescue 911, and Boston Legal. William Shatner has always been willing to take risks for his art. What other actor would star in history's first---and probably only---all-Esperanto-language film? Who else would share the screen with thousands of tarantulas, release an album called Has Been, or film a racially incendiary film in the Deep South during the height of the civil rights era? And who else would willingly paramotor into a field of waiting fans armed with paintball guns, all waiting for a chance to stun Captain...er, Shatner? In this touching and very funny autobiography, William Shatner's Up Till Now reveals the man behind these unforgettable moments, and how he's become the worldwide star and experienced actor he is today. "It is now Bill Shatner's universe---we just live in it."---New York Daily News

Leonard
New York Times Bestseller Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner first crossed paths as actors on the set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Little did they know that their next roles as Spock and Captain Kirk, in a new science fiction television series, would shape their lives in ways no one could have anticipated. In seventy-nine television episodes of Star Trek and six feature films, they grew to know each other more than most friends could ever imagine. Over the course of half a century, Shatner and Nimoy saw each other through personal and professional highs and lows. In this powerfully emotional book, Shatner tells the story of a man who was his friend for five decades, recounting anecdotes and untold stories of their lives on and off set, as well as gathering stories from others who knew Nimoy well, to present a full picture of a rich life. As much a biography of Nimoy as a story of their friendship, Leonard is a uniquely heartfelt book written by one legendary actor in celebration of another.

Live Long And . . .
Star Trek legend and veteran author William Shatner discusses the meaning of life, finding value in work, and living well whatever your age. "I have always felt," William Shatner says early in his newest memoir, that "like the great comedian George Burns, who lived to 100, I couldn’t die as long as I was booked." And Shatner is always booked. Still, a brief health scare in 2016 forced him to take stock. After mulling over the lessons he's learned, the places he's been, and all the miracles and strange occurrences he's witnessed over the course of an enduring career in Hollywood and on the stage, he arrived at one simple rule for living a long and good life: don't die. It's the only one-size-fits-all advice, Shatner argues in Live Long and..:What I Learned Along the Way, because everyone has a unique life—but, to help us all out, he's more than willing to share stories from his unique life. With a combination of pithy humor and thoughtful vulnerability, Shatner lays out his journey from childhood to peak stardom and all the bumps in the road. (Sometimes the literal road, as in the case of his 2,400-mile motorcycle trip across the country with a bike that didn't function.) William Shatner is one of our most beloved entertainers, and he intends never to stop entertaining. His funny, provocative, and poignant reflections offer an unforgettable read about a remarkable man.

Private investigator Jake Cardigan must race against time to save the life of his son and get the deadliest weapons in the world out of the hands of the most dangerous criminals in the universe In the seventh book of the TekWar Series by bestselling author and Star Trek icon William Shatner, terror hits too close to home for protagonist Jake Cardigan, private eye of the future. Homicide is as common in the twenty-second century as it was one hundred years earlier, thanks in large part to the ruthless TekLords, criminals who traffic in the popular electronic fantasy-enabling drug Tek. When a Tek user who was once a family friend is brutally murdered just outside the door of Dan Cardigan, son of private eye Jake Cardigan, the young man is shocked to discover that the police consider him a prime suspect. Worse still, Dan has become a disposable pawn in a very deadly game. With his son’s life on the line, Jake and his loyal partner, Sid Gomez, must somehow get to the bottom of the disappearance of terrifying new weaponry from a California research facility and a related rash of murders—a mission that will put them at odds not only with a formidable criminal conspiracy, but with the police and the most lethal factions of the US government itself.

In order to expose a sinister, far-reaching criminal conspiracy, detective Jake Cardigan , the twenty-second century’s most able private detective, must prove that an open-and-shut murder case is anything but Once again the inimitable William Shatner, Star Trek’s original Captain Kirk and a true star of science fiction adventure, brings the future vibrantly alive in the eighth nonstop, action-packed futuristic caper featuring private investigator Jake Cardigan, sworn enemy of the all-powerful TekLords. Walt Bascom, head of the Cosmos Detective Agency, is in serious trouble. Video surveillance in the home of superrich businessman Dwight Grossman clearly shows Bascom murdering the entrepreneur in cold blood. Bascom swears he didn’t do it, and he’s relying on his agency’s best investigator, Jake Cardigan, to prove it somehow. Jake and his partner, Sid Gomez, have their work cut out for them. The only “evidence” on their side is the testimony of the dead man’s sister, Susan, who claims she’s had telepathic visions of her brother’s true death. But Susan is an admitted devotee of the powerful, reality-altering electronic drug Tek. Whoever wanted her brother dead—and Bascom accused—went to great lengths to set up the scheme, and those responsible are not going to sit idly by while a pair of snooping private eyes and a burned-out Tek fiend start digging for answers. To keep the killers’ dark and very dirty secrets hidden, one corpse may not be enough. This ebook features an illustrated biography of William Shatner including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Private eye Jake Cardigan must derail an insidious plot by the ruthless Tek cartel to replace the US president with an android designed to do the group’s dark bidding William Shatner, the original face of Captain Kirk on TV’s Star Trek, displays another side of his remarkable talent with his sixth excursion into a future world where the ubiquitous techno-drug Tek rules, and one man remains dedicated to wiping the scourge and its criminal suppliers from the face of tomorrow’s Earth. Jake Cardigan—ex-cop, private investigator, and former Tek user—has been given a special assignment by the head of the Cosmos Detective Agency: to track down the murderer of his daughter-in-law. It is a job that takes Jake and his partner, Sid Gomez, from Los Angeles to the East Coast and into the heart of a terrifying conspiracy surrounding the president of the United States. Unbeknownst to the nation and the world, President Warren Brookmeyer, a Tek addict, is in rehab and has been temporarily replaced by an android replica, indistinguishable from the real chief executive. But the brazen scheme to shield the country from the truth is, in reality, the brainchild of the ruthless and powerful TekLords, who intend to keep the simulacrum in power indefinitely in order to alter official policy concerning the dangerous mind-enhancing electronic drug. If Jake and Sid fail to expose and eliminate this treasonous plot, the president will surely die—along with liberty, the law, and the twenty-second-century American way. This ebook features an illustrated biography of William Shatner including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
