Book Description

Bethany And The Zombie Jesus: A Novelette
Young Bethany has spent her entire life trying to be righteous and just in the eyes of the Lord. She has worked hard to please her Mama and to make sure she could live up to the trust Reverend Jones had put in her.

Now Bethany's faith and life are put to the test as what she always thought was a stone-likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ decides it doesn't want to be up on that cross anymore!
Can Bethany stop the Zombie Jesus before he brings the End of Days upon the Earth?

With 11 other tales of horror and grotesquery ranging from deep space terror (Through The Last WH) to bedbug bizarro (All The Freaky Bedbugs Of The World) and dark horror fantasy (Leather Belts & Wooden Spoons), this collection has a little bit of something for all the warped minds in the world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombie Jesus--What More Do You Need? February 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The narrative voice in Jake Bible's novella, Bethany and the Zombie Jesus, is so refreshing, I could clearly hear her speaking in my head. From the very beginning, she seems so naive and simple, but there's far more to Bethany than meets the eye. When faced with the task of wrangling evil in the name of all that is holy, Bethany is reluctant to take on the task. After all, the fate of the entire world rests in her hands--talk about pressure. Fortunately, she not only accepts her duty, but gets the job done with just seconds to spare.

An unexpected heroine, Bible's approach to the zombie genre never fails to excite me. With so many overdone and clichéd zombie stories on the market, stories like Bethany and the Zombie Jesus are a refreshing change of pace.

Combined in this collection with a smattering of everything from bizarro to classic psychological horror, you can't go wrong spending $.99 on this eBook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre, Twisted & Warped January 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jake Bible has a bizarre, twisted, irreverent and warped imagination...and I love it. This collection of short stories is a mix, some subtle horror while others being more in-your-face, gory and grotesque. The lead novelette, Bethany & the Zombie Jesus, is an irreverent and fascinating romp and one which I thoroughly enjoyed. The story "Blister" is not for the squeamish but is a delightfully twisted tale and one of my favorites from the collection. I also very much enjoyed "All The Freaky Bedbugs Of The World," which is another offbeat and warped tale. You certainly won't be bored with these short stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth some time and money - but not too much August 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title story is far, far-fetched. Other stories are vulgar or gruesome. BUT I think I got my $3 worth from this book. Just be warned that it's what you're getting.
