"This is easily one of the most enjoyable zombie books I have ever read. I have read a lot, and without a doubt this is the best. Nick Roberts introduces so many interesting and thought provoking points into a genre that is pretty much completely devoid of such ideas. Sure most zombie tales have the basic over arching message, but this has so much more. Without spoiling it would be almost impossible to explain so i will simply say that you should read this book."
From the Author
Where do you get your ideas?
Every creative person hears that question time and again. Even amongst the artists themselves, some say that they don't know the answer. Inspiration is a mystery to many, but if you're curious, I'll show you mine.
First came an appreciation for other artists. I absorbed selections of every media, from Lewis Carroll to H. P. Lovecraft, Peanuts to Lio, Batman to The Sandman, The Beatles to Siouxsie, "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari" to "The City of Lost Children", M. C. Escher to H. R. Giger, and greedily on and on.
Then came Sex, a most beloved muse. (Alas, she's treated roughly here, for this is a collection of horror stories more than a catalogue of consummations.)
Ultimately, Death drives the art to its conclusion. Its cold touch ends many tales of the macabre, and spurs the artist to finish as much work as possible. There are only so many hours in a life.
But the original question was where.
They all come together in the world of dreams. Here we fight and fuck and fly. Here we know fascination and fear. And here we have the greatest faith in fantasy.
