The Zombies Are Here

My new novella from Deadite Press, Rock and Roll Reform School Zombies, is now available from Amazon.com:

This story is a period piece set in 1987. It's meant to be a homage to the B horror movies of the 80's (especially Return of the Living Dead), hence the Troma-like title. The story is also influenced by the 1987 documentary Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years, which depicted the decadent hard rock/metal scene that thrived on the Sunset Strip in California in that decade. An interview in the movie with a conservative anti-metal person provided inspiration for an institution in my story that exists to "de-metal" teenagers and return them to society as squeaky-clean and well-behaved little automatons. It is a cesspool of corruption to begin with and then the zombies show up. I think most of you will have fun with it. So go buy a whole bunch of copies, okay?
