"...ferocious, twisted and often snarkily funny zombie horror hackathon... Lamoreux's violence doesn't approach the nihilistic brutality of (Jack) Ketchum but, when he does go there, it's all the more gripping because it is inflicted on characters you actually come to know and care about." - Peter O'Keefe, writer for Tales From the Darkside
"...quite entertaining and was a hell of a lot of fun to read... His zombies are a burning, melting, flesh and blood craving mess... one of the best zombie stories I have read in a while... a fun roller coaster ride of a story with plenty of action, fantastic characters, flesh eating and a dose humor to top it all off. I highly recommend you give "The Melting Dead" a try, you won't be disappointed." Peter Schwotzer, Famous Monster of Filmland magazine
About the Author
The last, quite possibly the least, Renaissance man, Doug Lamoreux (a father of three strong men and a grandfather), a lifelong horror film fan and child of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, recognized his incompatibility with the rest of the world - and gave it all up to act and write. He appeared in Mark Anthony Vadik's The Thirsting (aka Lilith) and Hag. He starred in Peter O'Keefe's Infidel and Boris Wexler's The Arab. All interspersed with forty years in theater (during which he fell off the stage twice). Now he writes swell horror novels. The first-ever Igor Award recipient from The Horror Society, Doug is also a former Rondo Award nominee, and his novel, Dracula's Demeter, was a 2012 Lord Ruthven Award nominee for fiction.
