Read an Excerpt

Remember when it all began? With that spill of toxic sludge out on Route 195? And those poor motorists complaining of headaches and blurry vision? And then there was that crazy “homeless person”—the one biting all those senior citizens on the subway—followed by a series of violent encounters at the local hospital. Police and firefighters arrived to lend a hand. Most ended up sacrificing a limb—or worse.
     Things escalated so quickly. Families sought refuge in schools, churches, and government buildings—to no avail. Within days, the sickness had spread across the entire country, and the ranks of the undead had grown exponentially.
     And now, here you are, living on the brink of an apocalypse, barricaded in a fallout shelter with enough provisions to last for two, maybe three weeks. Beyond your front door, several hundred zombies are biding their time. They know you’ll have to come out eventually.
     There’s no doubt about it: life is tough. But when you’re out of ammo and up against the wall, make the Zombie Tarot your weapon of choice. When used properly, these cards can offer advice on a host of situations—and a glimpse of the Big Picture to come.
     The deck is divided into the Major Arcana (twenty-two cards that chronicle the Fool’s journey from his first faltering steps to the end of the world) and the Minor Arcana (fifty-six cards that analyze the nitty-gritty of a situation through characters and behavior).
     Together, these cards reveal a path forward. Should you stay in your fallout shelter until the last of your supplies are depleted? Flee to one of the government=sponsored refugee camps? Proceed directly to the Gunz-R-Us? Consult the Zombie Tarot to determine the best course of action. These cards can’t predict the future, but they can offer you muchneeded perspective on a situation. Pay attention to your intuition, listen to your instincts, and always, always keep the shotgun loaded.
