The anthology of all BOOM!'s Zombie Tales books are out in one handsome trade paperback. Today BoingBoing was nice enough to give it a snappy review:
From the religious -- "For Pete's Sake," about the Mother Church's connection to zombiism -- to the comic -- "Four out of Five," which explains the connection between oral hygiene and zombie outbreaks, Zombie Tales runs the gamut. Every story in here is good, and some are GREAT, like John Rogers's "Daddy Smells Different," and they're mostly in the vein of the best of the Twilight Zone stories, punchy little tales with surprising twist endings, and like the Twilight Zone, the anthology's strength is its breadth. Zombie Tales' artists and writers work in a variety of styles, and the net effect is a kind of tour of the afterlife and all that it means to us.Full disclosure that the reviewer is Cory Doctorow, for whom I once bought dinner. It's up to you to decide if he's so easily bought.
My stories in this collection are "Daddy Smells Different", "Memento Mori", and "Four out of Five". You can purchase the anthology, if you like zombies, love zombies, or even just had that zombie-curious sophomore year in college -- here. I get nothing resembling royalties from this so ...
... wait a minute. Why the hell -- I have to make a call. Talk among yourselves.
