Overview

Four-year degree in business. Trained in hand-to-hand combat.

Works well with zombies.

This is the resume of the last mailman on Earth. It is the near future, and the modern world we knew has been overrun and destroyed by reanimated corpses who hunt humans for food. Mankind has retreated to small pockets of civilization and practically surrendered to the walking dead. But one man routinely leaves behind the safety and comfort to find the people and things we’ve long abandoned. He battles the elements. He battles his own brewing insanity.

But mostly, he battles zombies.

“Not only has an original idea but is a well put together story from start to finish … an absolute blast to read and a novel that I highly recommend!”—Buy Zombie

“A realistic account of how life could be like during the zombie apocalypse… but told in a humorous way.”—Lyle Perez, Undead in the Head

“Rain, sleet, snow, and the undead … watch out FedEx! Kevin Burke has done for post-apocalyptic mail delivery what the movies have failed to accomplish. Hollywood should pay attention to this story before they begin their next round of remakes.”—Tony Faville, author of KINGS OF THE DEAD

    "The Mailman" is a different kind of zombie story. DJ goes out into "the wild" (anywhere outside of the walls of new NYC) on a regular basis in order to provide closure and family heirlooms, etc. to a client.

    He is called a "mailman" because he comes back carrying a client's family pictures, suicide notes or other sentimental papers left by family, and any news of survivors or zombies that he put down. DJ does not allow any zombies to "live", family or not. And, survivors are rare in the wild.

    There are a few other walled-in city-states like NYC such as L.A. and Atlanta. Each city has its own president and bureaucracy.

    So, DJ, his friend, a few soldiers, and a few women are to be flown to the Atlanta air strip. NYC is trading with Atlanta for a "zombie-bite cure" developed by the remaining CDC scientists. The good and bad news hits DJ and others like a ton of bricks. The cure is real, and they are trading fertile women for it.

    Then, the story really gets started when the plane crash lands in the wild. That is when things really go downhill for these survivors.

    My advice: Keep reading. It is a good book. People have ups and downs. People die, survivors are found. But it is the way that it happens, that makes it a good read. And just when you think it is all over, it keeps going through the epilogue. It is worth the read. Give it a try.

    There are some explicit sex scenes and violence because it is a zombie book. So, it is recommended for older readers only.
