"What is wrong with me?!" That's what you're thinking, isn't it? You woke up in a drainage ditch covered with skin ulcerations and nasty flesh wounds. Your body is numb and your memory is foggy. Someone tried to give you medical attention, but you repaid their kindness by savagely killing them and eating their brains. You are a zombie my friend, just like me. Though most zombies are slow and stupid, the fact that you are reading this tells me that you are different. Some of us are. Welcome to the PACE virus apocalypse.

About the Author
J.D. MCGHOUL was a Midwestern, working-class lab assistant before being killed and reanimated by a PACE virus infection. Now a zombie author and activist, he divides his time between eating brains and educating the zombie public at large. Being one of a small minority of zombies who have retained their intellect and bodily speed, he recognizes his responsibility to give something back. McGhoul sees it as his mission to teach zombies what they have become, to show them how to hunt and kill, and to encourage them to wear their tattered flesh like a uniform in the war against humanity.
Raised in Dayton, Ohio, PAT KILBANE is an author and comedian who has appeared on Mad TV, Seinfeld, Semi-Pro and My Name Is Earl."

This book was a great addition to my massive collection of preternatural books and a fun one at that. The first thing I took notice of was the special effects used to bring real people to life as zombies instead of using computer software or just drawn pictures. This definitely adds to the realism of the book, which isn't for the faint of heart. I especially liked how the book was broken down into chapters with titles like, “Hunt: Our Right to Make People Extinct and Infect Others: The Four I’s.” Throughout the book are journal entries that act like a filler and give you the real sense that zombies are not what we have always thought they were: mindless and stupid. No, instead they are quite smart, retaining their intellectual smarts, and, despite their rotting flesh, they still have great penmanship. I know I will be thoroughly prepared when the zombie apocalypse comes and I choose to side with the zombies rather than dying permanently. This review first seen on City Book Reviews.
