What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"If you are into zombies, Zombies for Zombies is a great addition to your collection. And if zombies are not your thing, then this is still a great piece of humor that effectively parodies our modern world. And if you are one of the recently bitten, "read this book like there's no tomorrow, because in your case tomorrow isn't what it used to be."" - Grasping for the Wind

"Murphy simply takes the niceties of modern life (and occasionally the lack thereof), throws in the added dimension of recent zombification, and presto: instant cultural mishmash, suitable for snorting coffee all over." - Sacramento News and Review

"Once bitten it is vital to be familiar with the impending challenges and how to deal with them swiftly and appropriately. For the infected, Z4Z is a must have." - The UnClean

"I love that zombies are making the trasition for horror to humor - this book is perfect for those who agree! " - The Hiding Spot

Meet the Author

David P. Murphy is a living, breathing guy, and a songwriter who, inexplicably, spends an excessive amount of quality time thinking and writing about zombies. Murphy and zombies go way back. He saw Invisible Invaders as a child and it scared the bejeepers out of him. However, he quickly moved past the nightmares of his youth and began dreaming of visits to Caribbean jungles to experience his zombie friends firsthand. The realization of that dream, sadly, led to yet more nightmares and deeper issues. Gratefully, his fascination eventually evolved into a profession once he obtained his Ph.Z. from the prestigious Port-au-Prince Capon Academy.

Murphy currently can be seen shambling about the Omaha, Nebraska area where he closely guards his brains and those of his cat, Beany. He has no affiliation with QualiCorps™ although hes been known to enjoy a product of theirs every now and then. And one day, God willing, he hopes to retire to one those lovely Scarlet Shores facilities.

Daniel Heard is a living, breathing illustrator and graphic novelist. A graduate of the S.F. Academy of Arts, his artwork is featured on the cover and interior of Daniel H. Wilson and Anna Long's book, The Mad Scientist Hall of Fame and the Tori Amos graphic novel, Comic Book Tattoo.

    Disappointing

    I had high expectations for this book and I was pretty disappointed. The writer tries to be witty and funny but fails and it gets very distracting. It makes it tough to get into the book. I would recommend picking up one of Max Brooks' excellent books rather than this one.

    Self help books should be somewhat realistic

    The author tries to be funny, and the ones that try are the ones that fail. This book is based on nothing real. I do understand the word fiction, however, I am a believer that one day zombieism could happen so I tend to like books along these lines. Zombies for Zombies writes about pills to take to help you fell better along the transition that will not ever exist. Meal plans, retirement facilities, sexual positions, dance moves...none of this is funny nor thought provoking in any way. A total waste of money.

    Be ready for your post-life!

    If you're looking for something imaginative, entertaining, and laugh-out-loud funny, check out "Zombies for Zombies." You don't have to be a zombie fan to get a kick out of this book. Anybody with a sense of humor and an inclination to mock self-help books will enjoy the helpful advice and zany illustrations found in "Advice and Etiquette for the Living Dead." If you're not amused, have someone check your pulse.

    NOT AS GOOD AS EXPECTED

    I love Zombies and I love the For Dummies books but this book doesn't live up to my expectations. It didn't hold my interest long enough to read past the 1st chapter and a half.

    Post lifers this one is for you!

    It was laugh out loud funny and entertaining. If you need a good laugh and do not take life too serioulsy this is the book for you. While it may seem bleak being about zombies and all it is uplifting and something I may even look forward to :)
