Love and Zombies
By Eric Shapiro
The zombie apocalypse has already ended. The government nipped the problem in the bud before it got out of hand. But now Henry, an aspiring filmmaker in Los Angeles, is getting a request from his old friend Sam Kranson. Sam Kranson says they need to go run an errand in Las Vegas. There’s a hefty payday for the job. And it involves capturing a real live zombie.
But that can’t be true, can it? Are there zombies out there in the Nevada desert? Or has Sam Kranson finally lost his mind? And more importantly: Will Henry’s loving girlfriend Teresa strangle him if he goes on this adventure with Sam?
Part horror, part comedy, all madness and suspense, Love & Zombies is a lunatic burn through three days in the life of Henry—days in which he battles to stay alive, and get back to his love without becoming (un)dead.
“I enjoyed the HELL out of this book! Witty, action-packed, and ridiculously entertaining.” —Jeff Strand
“LOVE & ZOMBIES is hilarious! A very different voice from Shapiro. This is not your father’s zombie story. Or your cousin’s. And probably not your girlfriend’s, either. She’ll know why. Oozing with fun, humor, and a whole lot of undead tongue poking through hole in cheek, LOVE & ZOMBIES is a fresh, delightful spin. Rom-Zom-Shoot-Your-Mom!” —John Palisano
” Hilariously depraved and disgusting, thoroughly lewd and mean as hell but not without grace notes of humanity, LOVE & ZOMBIES is a much-needed cattle-prod to the ass of the zombie subgenre.” —Scott Bradley, co-author of THE DARK and co-editor of THE BOOK OF LISTS HORROR
“Eric Shapiro’s Love and Zombies is an all out thrill ride. It’s shot through with sex, drugs and rock & roll, but don’t let that fool you. Shapiro writes with a street smart sensibility and a deep and abiding empathy for his characters. There’s no shortage of zombie stories out there, but this one is in a class by itself. Great, great read!” —Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of INHERITANCE and DEAD CITY
“With Love & Zombies, Eric Shapiro has given us a fast paced, insane and in my opinion, a fun and kick-ass zombie tale that is sure to make any horror fiction fan happy.” —Peter Schwotzer, Famous Monsters of Filmland
