Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Two fashionista zombies on the lam leave a trail of carnage from Seattle to Rapid City, S.D., in this unabashedly raunchy sequel to 2008's Happy Hour of the Damned. Narrator Amanda Feral, who sneers at the poor fashion sense of her victims before eating their brains, coaxes fellow zombie Wendy Miller to accompany her on a visit to Amanda's dying, abusive mother. They pick up the pace when their vampire friend, Gil, offends a strip club owner, who chases them with a pack of werewolves. Someone also keeps beheading members of Amanda's pickup entourage, but it's hard to credit her outrage given her own homicidal proclivities. Casual browsers drawn in by sarcastic, hip comments may be taken aback by deliberately filthy incidents involving genitalia and excrement; this is not a tale for the weak of stomach. (Mar.)

More About the Author

Mark traded a career in the helping profession to scar minds with his fiction. He attributes his ideas to premature exposure to horror movies, and/or witnessing adult cocktail parties in the '70s. His development has been further skewed by surviving earthquakes, typhoons, and two volcanic eruptions. Despite being disaster prone, he somehow continues to live and breathe. Residing in the oft maligned, yet not nearly as soggy as you'd think, Pacific Northwest, with his wife and two furry monsters that think they're children.

Customer Reviews

I read the 1st book in the series and I was hooked!
T. Gedney
As in the first book, the footnotes will make you laugh more often than not, and the story will never stop amazing you with its twisted hilarity.
Pony L.
I have to like the main characters in the book to enjoy it and more often than not I couldn't like Amanda.

The fearsome threesome is back in Road Trip of the Living Dead. When Amanda gets a letter stating that her mother is dying, her first instinct is to pitch the letter and forget about it. After all, what did her mother ever do for her? Wendy and Gil appeal to the softer side of Amanda's conscience. When things go wrong with a client in Gil's new resurrection business, off they go to the middle of nowhere to pay one last visit to the woman who gave birth to Amanda. Along the way, they encounter some unusual characters. And of course, they also manage to encounter more trouble. Will Amanda be able to keep from bashing in her mother's head with a bedpan? Will she be able to retain her youthful good looks while in the middle of danger?

I have to admit, I had bought Happy Hour of the Damned about two days before meeting Mark Henry at RT last year. It was nowhere near the top of my reading list, but when I came home, I sat down and started to read it. As I read the first chapter, I was not sure I wanted to keep reading the book, but by the time I finished it, I was glad I did. I knew I could not wait until he finished the next book. To find out that it would not come out until the following year was pure torture. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I got my hands on a copy for review. I loved it! Road Trip of the Living Dead is definitely worth 5 tombstones.

Amanda Feral is not your typical zombie and if it were not for her eating habits, you would never guess that she was anything but a diva. Road Trip is very snarky and, at times, very funny. Mr. Henry uses footnotes throughout the book as well as playlists and various other little unexpected surprises.

This is no club opening. Zombie Amanda Feral, gal pal Wendy, and vamp cohort Gil are on the road, making a mad dash away from the newly-vamped gangster who is out to end Gil's unlife. Facing such savage threats as werewolf thugs, vengeance seeking girls with guns, overly-polite cultists, and K-Mart shopping, the gang makes their way to the deathbed of Amanda's mother. Amanda's not interested in closure, but she wouldn't mind making sure her Mommy Dearest is ushered off into the next world permanently. Besides, what better way to let a gangster cool his heels than flee town? But of course, things are never that simple, and we lucky readers get to delve not only into Amanda's past (showing some depth beneath that shallow exterior), but get taken along for the chaos of the road trip of an after-lifetime.

Format: Paperback
Plot Summary: The notoriously hip zombie, Amanda Feral, was part of a disastrous vampire-raising with her friends Gil and Wendy. The newly risen vamp wants revenge, so this undead trio must hit the road post haste in a P.O.S. Winnebago. Since Amanda's mother is on her deathbed in the middle of the country, they have the perfect excuse for a road trip, no-never-mind that Amanda hates the old biddy and could care less about a bedside farewell. Along the way, they encounter skinheads, werewolves, Wal-Marts (gasp), and weirdness at every turn.

I just can't get over some of the things I read in this book. It was raunchy, saucy, and so funny that I couldn't keep reading because my whole body was shaking with laughter. Henry is completely fearless with a sick sense of humor to boot, and he writes about the kinds of things that polite people are happy to leave unsaid. If you're the sort of person who snorts at good bathroom humor (my hand is raised), then you'll probably howl at several scenes here. If you cannot abide by coarse, lewd, or filthy jokes, pass this one by, because at some point this book would offend your delicate sensibilities like a juicy fart in an elevator.

Hanging out with Amanda and her chums is like entering the glittering, superficial world of professional party girls, and yet amazingly, I did not hate their guts. I quickly got a sense that their flash on the outside was just a coat of makeup, and when I scraped it away, I found that Amanda, Gil, and Wendy have a friendship in the truest sense. They are so full of themselves, so fabulous darling, that when they get into trouble it's like watching Paris Hilton try to do emergency brain surgery. It's comical in the extreme.

Format: Paperback
In Seattle nightlife lover Amanda Feral wishes American had more of a fashions sense especially those people she dines on when she eats their brains; though if they understood fashion, she might not use them as dessert. The zombie fashion hound learns her abusive mother Ethel is dying so she decides to pay her respects to the wicked witch of the northwest. She persuades her friend zombie Wendy Miller to go with her to Rapid City, South Dakota, home of the fashion-challenged and mommy meanest.

The two zombiettes decide to stay in town for one more night before the trek to mommy meanest. However, their friend gay vampire Gil angers a strip club owner, making it imperative he leave town immediately. The trio flees as werewolves give chase while Amanda's pickups seem to lose their heads, but their biggest fear is the shopping horde at Kmart.

This is a wild zany bawdy urban horror thriller (see Happy Hour of the Damned) starring no heroes. The story line is fast-paced with plenty of graphic blood, guts, and sh*t letting. The road warriors are a crude but fun bunch while the tale needs to carry two warnings: don't eat while reading this novel and cover your genitals with armor at all times. Sort of placing Divine of Pink Flamingos fame in a George Romero movie as Mark Henry is over the Rocky Mountains with this wild ROAD TRIP OF THE LIVING DEAD.
