Overview

BOONE AND WALKER

Boone and Walker are the last members of the Floating Dragons motorcycle gang. When the zombie apocalypse turns the world upside down, they hit the open road to discover America. No responsibilities, no rules, no system. Like Frank and Jesse James, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, all they need are steeds and sidearms.

THE ROAD TO HELL

But this bloodstained road is paved with the walking dead: shambling corpses starved for living flesh. The few humans left are no less hungry, and Boone and Walker encounter remnants of civilization desperate to survive. In some cases, the living are even more dangerous than the dead.

RAW CARNAGE

First west to Hollywood to gaze at the stars, then southeast to the badlands of Texas, Boone and Walker make a last stand on behalf of humanity. Along the way guns blaze, rotting flesh bakes on the asphalt, and friendship and loyalty are tested to their limits.

CARNAGE ROAD

CARNAGE ROAD is Gregory Lamberson’s unforgettable ode to westerns, biker pictures, and the cinema of the living dead.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Lamberson's (The Frenzy Way) post-zombie-apocalypse novella wastes no time getting into entrails-stomping, brain-splattering action, as members of an outlaw motorcycle gang raid a supermarket infested with animated-dead stock boys and checkout girls, only to have their haul of canned soup and beer stolen by marauding ex-cops. The gang's two surviving members, Boone and Walker, take off on their bikes, debating which meaningless destination to head for. The minority of surviving humans more or less realize that they'll finally be overcome by the multitude of dead, so in the meantime the two biker buddies might as well do whatever amuses them—if that means visiting Los Angeles to watch dead celebrities shambling along the Walk of Fame so they can dimly admire their stars in the sidewalk, why the hell not? Lamberson manages to work some witty moments into the general grossness, but like the protagonists, the story really has nowhere to go. (Apr.)
Library Journal
Boone and Walker, the last survivors of the Floating Dragons motorcycle gang, set out on a cross-country odyssey through the zombie apocalypse. Their trek begins in Buffalo and heads west through Indiana, where they catch a movie in an abandoned movie theater crawling with zombies that are also watching Death Machine starring Bruce Willis; Kansas, site of their imprisonment by racist right-wing extremists; Hollywood, home of undead celebrities haunting their stars on the Walk of Fame; and concluding in Texas for a last stand at the Alamo. Along the way, they drive fast, take out ghouls, and encounter both the best and the worst remainders of the human race. VERDICT Lamberson's (Personal Demons) latest is both bleak and beautiful, a brain-splattering zombie thriller that is at its core a paean to the power of friendship, even in a dead world. This novella may be brief, but it has real bite, along with taut zombie action, scathing social commentary, and a suitably nihilistic ending. Zombie fans are in for one easy ride through the apocalypse. [Print Is Dead is Creeping Hemlock's zombie-themed imprint.—Ed.]

    When the zombie apocalypse happens, it's every man for himself.

    When the zombie apocalypse happens, it's every man for himself. American quickly falls apart as the ghouls take over cities everywhere. Boone and Walker are some of those living who are trying to survive. After their biker gang falls apart, Boone and Walker set out to see what's left of the United States. Their trip takes them from East Coast to West, and along the way they see some of the good and bad parts of people trying to survive. At the end of the day, Boone and Walker can really only rely on each other, but that may not be enough to keep them from being zombie food.

    Carnage Road is a novella, so it's a quick read. It packs a lot into the limited number of pages though. You get a clear view of the desperation and horror of the zombie apocalypse that has taken place. You also get a real sense of the difficulty of surviving a situation like this. This book had enough horror to give you a sense of the terror they were facing, but it wasn't so awful that it kept me from sleeping or anything. I like that though. I feel like it was graphic enough without being too graphic (for a zombie book anyway).

    In the end though, this ended up being a great story about friendship. Here are two guys trying to survive something horrific, and yet they are still able to keep a good sense of humor and perspective about things. There are a few stops along the way that are pretty hilarious. The description of zombie Hollywood was amazing and funny at the same time. The end of the story leaves you with sadness but also a bit of happiness knowing these two friends are going into this together. Fans of horror and zombies should definitely check this story out.
