Yes, much of his verse is zombie-centric, and I thoroughly enjoyed the various incarnations of One Lone Zombie, but there are other delights to be found between the pages here. I was blown away by Zak's interpretation of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, done up with each of their own poems. Even with that said, Zak slips in humor and a presentation that gives you reason to smile now and then. I particularly enjoyed 'Be Brightness', which, if you read the back cover of this book, is a cornerstone of this cookie-loving zombie madman.
I am no poetry expert. I have read my share and can be touched and moved by it, most certainly, but it is not a staple of my existence. So take that as a measure of my ability to judge a book filled with horror poetry, but I did enjoy this too brief book immensely for its rapid pace, quick wit, and inspired verse. Zak has talent, could easily grow broodingly philosophical with his words, but he lightens it up with the occasional burst of lunacy and zombie chickens. Yes, I said zombie chickens.
I will leave this review with the zombie's own words: Above all else, whatever you do, be true, be Brightness, be happy!
