Reanimated Americans

Overview

Jett Ahrens has just joined the Zombie Division of the Census Bureau, hoping for a dull, uncomplicated job counting the country's newest citizens-the Living Dead. Y'know: Zombies, Rotters, Grave Potatoes, but don't call them any of those names. They're Reanimated Americans, and they aren't anything like their cinematic counterparts-they don't eat your flesh or want your brains. They just... stand around. Loitering. Stinking up the place.

Easy enough, yeah, but one of Jett's ...

Overview

Jett Ahrens has just joined the Zombie Division of the Census Bureau, hoping for a dull, uncomplicated job counting the country's newest citizens-the Living Dead. Y'know: Zombies, Rotters, Grave Potatoes, but don't call them any of those names. They're Reanimated Americans, and they aren't anything like their cinematic counterparts-they don't eat your flesh or want your brains. They just... stand around. Loitering. Stinking up the place.

Easy enough, yeah, but one of Jett's partners might be a little nuts, and then there's the serial re-killer going around town and setting walking dead folks on fire. Not to mention the Red Death Gang transforming the undead into works of art. Or the pair of psychotic cops tracking the serial re-killer and wreaking havoc of their own.

Or the nasty secret Jett keeps in a rental storage unit...

A biting satire about how civilization might cope with its most popular boogieman, Reanimated Americans by Martin A. Mundt will send a chill down the spines of zombie-lovers and bureaucracy-fearers everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It’s 2019, and the zombie apocalypse of 2000 has turned out to be rather anticlimactic. Sure, the dead now make a habit of rising from their graves and shambling around the streets, but instead of hungering for human flesh, they simply hang around and make nuisances of themselves. Thanks to the ACLU, they also have rights. Chicago Census Bureau trainee Jett Ahrens is one of many government employees tasked with keeping records on “animated-Americans,” a task he diligently attempts despite interference from his own co-workers, corrupt cops, a “serial re-killer,” a former priest seeking a glimpse of heaven, and an insane gangster. Mundt’s plain prose heightens scenes of gruesome horror and gallows humor. Though not for all tastes, this darkly comedic satire is enjoyably novel in its depiction of a world where the walking dead are more likable and lively than many of the living. (Dec.)
