    About Paul Ruditis Patrick Faricy


    1. Paul Ruditis also writes under the name P.J Ruditis.I was born and raised in Philadelphia where I lived a typical childhood with a far interesting fantasy life I mean, how many other eight year olds were sticking their Star Wars action figures in Ziploc bags filled with water and putting them in the freezer to recreate the ice planet of Hoth Really That many Never mind After college, I moved to Los Angeles and was very lucky to get a job as a page at Paramount Pictures only months after I got into town I worked as a tour guide and usher, and I performed temp office work around the lot.Eventually, I took a position working in the studio s licensing department where I quickly worked my way up to middle management After a while, one of my friends in the publishing industry offered me the opportunity to write a Buffy, The Vampire Slayer short story for a collection she was editing Well, when I heard how little money I could make as a writer, I immediately quit my job to try it full time Stupid, I know, but it kind of worked for me I started out by writing books based on such wonderful TV shows as Star Trek, Roswell, and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch I have since written over 30 books based some of the best shows on TV, adding The West Wing, Alias, and Prison Break to that ever growing list.While I continue to work on these media tie ins, I have also been focused on my own original fiction, including my teen series DRAMA and the Simon Pulse Romantic Comedy Love, Hollywood Style Abridged Bio Official Website.

    1. First of all I feel merciful in adding a star to this review just since of the fact that I really haven't watched enough Star Trek or done any heavy reading to know much about the Klingon culture. As a result of my lack of understanding there were definitely some parts of the book that didn't make sense to me although I did look up Klingon courtship so I could understand the meaning behind if he survives it. The idea is basically a take upon "The Night Before Christmas" where the Klingons claim [...]

    3. My husband is a huge Star Trek nerd and I'm a big fan of nerdy kids books. This book combines the two, weaving an amusing tale of the way Klingons celebrate Khristmas. We're going to buy a copy for our son's collection, as I cannot imagine anything cuter than reading our son a Klingon story during the holidays.

    4. Wonderful illustrations and cute Christmas story for all Star Trek fans!

    5. This absolutely FLAWLESS book had me in stitches from page one. Told in the style of "Twas the Night Before Christmas," this quick little book explains all we Humans need to know about the Klingon holiday. Which, by the way, we totally stole, just like their Shakespeare. (taH pagh taHbe'!) Other items of note:- While good little boys and girls receive shiny knives and daggers, honorless Klingon children might find nasty Tribbles in their stockings.- The Klingon version of Santa is drawn in his s [...]

    6. Yes, I know it is very early for buying Christmas presents but this is such a great parody book for Star Trek-loving parents to get for their Star Trek-suffering kids. This Santa has a warp-20 sleigh led by eight tiny birds-of-prey with a ninth that sometimes leads the way and Khristmas dinner is not what Earth kids expect but Klingon kids will enjoy. Illustrations are reminiscent of Norman Rockwell but include batliffs, tribbles and very cute Klingon kids celebrating the great Kahless’s birth [...]

    7. My son and I found this at Books A Million. But after looking at the $20 price tag we immediately thought "LIBRARY"!!!This book is not worth $20. Not in the least. I think it might be worth around $5, but that's just my opinion.The pictures are magnificent. They have a very warm and cuddly feeling (well, for Klingons)but the writing is just "Meh".I think this was written just so the fandom would pick it up. The kids. well they ain't gonna dig it. Not in my opinion. But it is a neat book and tota [...]

    8. Full of holiday cheer, A Very Klingon Khristmas is a charming and fun celebration of the season. A kind of spoof on The Night Before Christmas, the book is written in verse and tells of the traditions and rituals that Klingons partake in to honor the birth of Kahless and the annual coming on Santa Qlas; who gives gifts to honorable boys and girls. The verses by author Paul Ruditis are especially clever and quite funny. And the artwork by Patrick Faricy is extraordinarily good, with a slightly Ro [...]

    9. I saw this at my library on display and had to read it. I do not consider myself a Trekkie, but I proudly admit to being a fan of the original series and movies. It was an okay book with several references at which fans will chuckle. The illustrations are spot-on; the expressions and fierceness of the Klingons are captured on each page. While I found it in the children's section, I would not recommend it to kids unless they are Star Trekfans (and I'm not talking about the recent set of pseudo mo [...]

    10. Now this is a Christmas book you can read to your children with pride. Great artwork. Great story. This is a wonderful, classic, heartwarming Christmas story.I don’t happen to know Klingon, sadly, but there are several times it is used in the story. However, having watched plenty of Star Trek, and the fact that it rhymed, I didn’t have any problem reading it.Honestly if you like Star Trek there is really no reason not to own this book. Imagine the joy you can have by introducing your young c [...]

    11. Beautifully illustrated and cleverly written, A Very Klingon Khristmas is a true delight! I found myself grinning from cover to cover, and then going back again to examine the pictures even closer. The rhyming is delightful, and as a tongue-in-cheek parody, this book is a true winner! And the novelty books won't end: coming next year is Fun with Kirk and Spock, in the style of the old primary school readers, Fun with Dick and Jane.Full review: treklit/2013/12/a

    12. Though Santa is fearsome,he also brings joy.He brings something special for each girl and each boy.There's dollies and yo-yos, toy trains with conductors, and maybe a mek'leth or pair of disruptors.These are not the toys of a warrior! Pfta!However, the rest is historically and culturally accurate, and aesthetically pleasing.Mmm roast targ. Buy this title from Powell's Books.

    13. While the story is adorable and so very star trek, what really won me over was the illustration. In a very Norman Rockwell style the artwork is so classic Christmas book that it takes a second to realize that, nope, that is a Klingon in that picture. A great twist on the average Christmas story book that will now become one of my holiday traditions.

    14. I love Star Trek so when I saw this book at the Christmas section in the library, I had to take it home!I would have only given it two stars but the illustrations are so great I upped it to three stars. It is a good enough read but I probably won't get it a second time.

    15. Real rating: 3.5Lifelong Star Trek fan here. This book looks like it's for kids, but I think it takes an adult (and a Trekkie, at that) to really appreciate it. Definitely enjoyed this - thanks for the fun read, Paul!

    16. Lots of fun, love the Kahless Khristmas story. Some of the rhymes leave a little be desired, but that's so not the point. Definitely takes a level of Star Trek appreciation. My personal favorite was the tribbles in the stocking for naughty boys and girls.
