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?

New novella

Here's the cover for my forthcoming novella Rock and Roll Reform School Zombies. This should be out very soon from Deadite Press, possibly by the end of this month. I will post the ordering link when it goes live. This is a trade paperback. The list price is $10.95. This is a period piece set in 1987, and is sort of a dual homage to Return of the Living Dead and Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years.
