Welcome to POSTHUMOUS, an urban fantasy novel that explores a culture in which becoming undead is seen as a viable second chance.

What if zombies were sentient? (Don’t call them the Z-word, by the way—it’s offensive; they prefer “undead” or “living-challenged.”)

What if the idea of brain-eating corpses were just an ugly stereotype?

What if the undead lived and worked amongst us? Would the living welcome their pulse-neutral brethren with open arms—or keep them at arm’s length?

More importantly, what if you had a chance to become reanimated? Would you leave your starter life behind and embrace the undead concept of Cadabra Rasa?

Bold, poignant, and at times darkly humorous and disturbing, POSTHUMOUS is must-reading for anyone looking for a new way to experience the zombie genre.

About the Author

In the early 90s, under the auspices of Screaming Rice Press, David S.E. Zapanta created and published the comic book HAIRBAT, about a man who gets a large, talking bat permanently ensnarled within his curly mane.

In 2005, Mr. Zapanta launched Melancholy Greetings. These so-called "Blank Cards for Empty Lives" are available for purchase in stores and online.

Mr. Zapanta's newest creative endeavor is POSTHUMOUS, a speculative novel that delves into a universe in which sentient zombies reside alongside their uneasy living counterparts.

He is currently working on books 2 and 3 of the CADABRA RASA series. Subscribe to David S.E. Zapanta's author page to receive email updates about book 2: BEFORE & AFTER LIFE....!
