…and I survive!
Never let it be said that Zombies aren’t nice people – well, they were before they died, so surely that carries through?
Anyway, you can read Splinker’s interview with me on his blog –
…and once you’ve finished that, if you’re in a shambling frame of mind, trip on over to amazon and pick up a copy of his brilliant book:
Being a zombie is no picnic and it’s one hell of a handicap in the romance department when you fall in love with a ‘breather’:
Aleta is a breather with short blonde hair and brown eyes – two of them! – and the whitest smile Fred has ever seen. Every day at a certain time she sits at her window, and every day he stands in the rubble across the street among a crowd of zombies waiting to break through the fence and eat her.
‘You are beautiful, like an angel’, he thinks, but all he can moan is, “Braaaiiinss.”
Still, as zombies go, Fred’s quite a catch. Underneath all the gangrene and rot, Fred is different. This girl will probably turn out to be yet another dead end, an infatuation, someone whose image he cannot get out of his mind and whose taste he cannot get out of his mouth, but the heart wants what the heart wants.
For breathers, it is always only a matter of time, however beautiful they are and whatever the government is assuring people.
Which makes Fred sad because he has a beautiful 11 year old son called Timmy, and Timmy may still be alive.
I’ve reviewed this book before (check out https://tpsworld.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/friday-focus-international-zombie-day/ if you want to read it) and it remains my favourite zombie book, I can’t wait for the prequel / sequel!
