New one just showed up at my library

Looks like it's aimed at teens, but it might be out there in other overdrive public libraries...

there is also Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter

Queen Victoria’s thoughts are occupied by Prince Albert. Can she dedicate her life to saving her country when her heart belongs elsewhere? With lashings of glistening entrails, decapitations, zombies, and foul demons, this masterly new portrait will give a fresh understanding of a remarkable woman, a legendary monarch, and quite possibly the best demon hunter the world has ever seen.

Thank you for the suggestion of this series - the description alone cracks me up.

I missed your post from a while back...sorry.

I LOVE those titles. They're wonderful and full of the comic addiction I like.

Onward, Christian Zombies!

Here's one I MADE UP JUST NOW: "Rudolph The Red-Gutted Reindeer."

Just saw Zombies for Zombies at B&N pretty funny spoof of a Dummies guide. And Plauge of the Dead by Z A Recht, looks pretty good on first scan through. Military bio weapon creates living dead.
Hey Doc? Have you ever heard of or read The Flesh Eaters by LA Morse of Offspring by Jack Ketchum? I read Morse's book back in highschool and was reminded of it when I read a review about Ketchem's books in Horror Hound magazine. They sound like they are worth looking up.

If you want a real good time, check out Bosley Gravel's *Cannibal Lesbian Zombies from Outer Space -- versus -- Doctor Clockwork and his Furious Plastic Surgeons of Doom: The Movie*. It really is one heck of a good read -- set to become an American classic, I think. You can pick it up in all digital formats at Smashwords and pretty well everywhere else in ebook and paperback, but if you're strapped for cash, just email me and I'll send you a PDF version free. Cheers. Neil

Thanks to Neil, Gravel's The Movie... was fun, and the formating looked good. It is a movie script in a novel.
I just finished Day By Day Armageddon and the second book is due out in July. Looks promising.

A vampire-based comic to mention

There's a recent vampire comic might be of interest to some readers:

American Vampire: A new Vertigo Comics series (the first issue was released this week) that is written by Scott Snyder and Stephen King (the famous horror author), with art by Rafael Albuquerque. It's a series that features a new species of vampire that originate in America. The first issue features two stories (one written by Snyder and the other by King), one story takes place in the 1880s and the other in 1925.

I loved World War Z. I didn't like The Zombie Survival Guide much, though, except for the recorded attacks appendix. That was cool.

I've also heard good things about I Am Legend, though I haven't read it myself.

There's a graphic novel version of I Am Legend out there, it was good but I liked the traditional book better. I love Matheson.

Breathers: A Zombie's Lament

Don,

A while ago, I downloaded the free Amberville that got mentioned here. I finally started reading it yesterday, and after two chapters, still couldn't get my head wrapped around the (what's the word?) milieu. So, going to the web for help, I happened on a Washington Post capsule review. And what should appear on the same page, but a review of Breathers: A Zombie's Lament, by S.G. Browne. Based on the review, I stopped at the public library on the way home last night and picked it up (there doesn't appear to be an e-edition). It's certainly a new and unique perspective that the author calls "zom-rom-com" (zombie romantic comedy). From the back cover blurb:

Quote:
Meet Andy Warner, a recently deceased everyman and newly minted zombie. Resented by his parents, abandoned by his friends, and reviled by a society that no longer considers him human, Andy is having a bit of trouble adjusting to his new existence. But all that changes when he goes to an Undead Anonymous meeting and finds kindred souls in Rita, an impossibly sexy recent suicide with a taste for the formaldehyde in cosmetic products, and Jerry, a twenty-one-year-old car-crash victim with an exposed brain and a penchant for Renaissance pornography. When the group meets a rogue zombie who teaches them the joys of human flesh, things start to get messy, and Andy embarks on a journey of self-discovery that will take him from his casket to the SPCA to a media-driven class-action lawsuit on behalf of the rights of zombies everywhere.
Sounds a little bit like the final scene in the film "Shaun of the Dead," if you've seen that. Apparently, the running gag is the complete lack of empathy that we "breathers" have for zombies, and is exemplified by wisecracks of the form "If you've never woken up from a car accident to discover that your wife is dead and you're an animated, rotting corpse, then you probably wouldn't understand."

I should keep recording these bon mots as I find them:
  • "If you've never been in a dumpster coated with industrial waste while someone stabs you with a piece of sharpened rebar, then you probably wouldn't understand."
  • "If you've never been staked down on the side of a hill and left out to rot at a research facility for human decay, then you probably wouldn't understand."

It's also technically a vampire novel, but it was George Romero's primary inspiration when he made "Night of the Living Dead."
