Editorial Reviews

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.
