"A day without laughter is a day wasted."
Andy is a husband, father and co-author of the bestselling Making Fake Star Trek (a book that Star Trek’s Chekov, Walter Koenig touts in his autobiography, Beaming Up and Getting Off, and called “a delightful read!”). Andy followed up that success with a sequel Making More Fake Star Trek, 2020: The Novel, and A Collection of Happy Memories from...2020.
Andy grew up in Miami, Florida, where, at a young age, he developed an unhealthy obsession with Star Trek—an obsession that’s finally paying dividends. In 2000, Andy moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and was propelled into fan film stardom through his role as Chekov, first in the Paramount Pictures stage production of “Spock’s Brain” and, secondly, as a co-star to Walter Koenig, George Takei, and Denise Crosby in three episodes of Star Trek: New Voyages.
In the time since, Andy has studied improv and comedy writing at The Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade and cultivated a collection of obscure credits on IMDB; all while discovering his true calling as a writer. In addition to his three books, Andy has written articles for StarTrek.com.
Andy resides in Los Angeles with his wife Kelli and their three kids. He is currently writing his first novel, The Has-Been.
2020: THE NOVEL
(THIS IS A GAG BOOK)
2020: The Novel is the perfect book for anyone eager to relive 2020!
Holden Heart is an eager, if unorthodox, young private detective who will face his deadliest case yet when he's hired by the stunning but treacherous heiress, Diana Coquette to investigate her father's murder. Pursued by lethal gangsters, Tony Luxor and Gaspard Bowelman, Holden will have to fight his way through a relentless year if he's going to make it out of 2020 alive . . .
At least that's what this book would have been if 2020 had been a normal year. Instead you're getting:
a GAG BOOK!
Like so many of us during 2020, Holden's promise of a first person narrative (written as a journal) and an exciting mystery involving a heiress quickly devolves into a devastated protagonist who can't bring himself to write more than A BRIEF SENTENCE OR TWO ON EVERY OTHER PAGE as the horrifying headlines of the year begin to roll in. Instead of a thrilling, page turning adventure, Holden spends his year depressed and giving monosyllabic responses to 2020's dreary headlines while in bed doing puzzles, watching Tiger King, and finally berating the reader for eagerly picking up a book that revisits the dumpster fire that was 2020.
"Making Fake Star Trek by Andy Bray and John Lim. If you ever fantasized about being aboard the Enterprise this is the book for you. Well written and very entertaining. A delightful read.”
