Editorial Reviews

Misty Baker
Incorporating the sarcastic humor of say… “Shaun of the Dead” and the desperation of “28 Days Later” Wallen managed to blaze a path that felt both original, and undeniably refreshing. Opting for sarcasm over pure terror made this one of the funniest books I have read in a while, and in doing so, captured a (very highly coveted) place in my zombie hall of fame. My advice? If you, (like me) love the “anger management-ly challenged” this is MUST read

Meet the Author

Jack Wallen is the new name in horror. His works span genres and weave evil, conspiracy, and fear into nightmarish worlds.

Jack has been given the title "Zombie King" by his readers and fans. He didn't garner that title by dining on the brains of helpless victims. It was only after writing until his fingers and mind were nothing but meat for the beasts that he became a master of the zombie genre. During that haunted hay ride Jack produced works of fiction enjoyable by not just zombie fans, but anyone daring to take a peek into what might possibly become of humanity.

Of course, being of the insane writer clan, Jack isn't just happy with the penning of zombie fiction. Oh no, the nightmare does not end there. Like the late, great Freddy Mercury, Jack wants it all -- so, he will continue twisting the horror genre to meet his disturbed mind as well as write his Fringe Killer and Screampark series, and his joyous celebration of all things diverse -- Shero.

For his inspiration to begin reading and writing, Jack thanks the ever-incredible Clive Barker for penning in a genre with words of grace and horror.

    Great!

    Interesting, thrilling, real. Very clever through the narrator's eyes... Definitely worth the late nights, chomping through the book.

    Great Read!

    Really enjoyed this book! I read a lot of books, and love mystery/horror and zombie books. This is one of the best I've ever read. Kept me turning the pages to the end.

    Jacob is a likeable hero. Lots of humor, some graphic horror, but very well written.

    I've kept this on my Nook and plan to read again.

    I love zombie movies. So i was hoping to really like this book, but i didnt. Started off great and interesting, but then started getting slower and slower towards the end. I only finished because i hate not finishing things.....
