Zombies Christmas Carol
Gather your family close, board up the doors, and heed well the tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge--a man for whom no fire could warm, whose cold heart pumped ice through his veins, and whose lips uttered a firm BAH! to any sort of happiness. But there are even bigger terrors than Scrooge himself...
Just in time for the holidays—a hilarious Christmas novella and sequel to the author’s highly acclaimed Breathers, “a zombie comedy with brains” (Kirkus Reviews).“One of America’s best satiric novelists” (Kirkus Reviews), S. G. Browne seamlessly gift wraps this horrific and hilarious sequel to his “extremely strong” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) zombie novel Breathers. He sees you when you’re sleeping . . . he knows when you’re undead. How does the leader of a failed zombie civil rights movement from California rescue a group of his undead brethren and help a lonely Breather girl as he hides from a band of medical researchers while disguised as Santa Claus? If you’ve never believed in Christmas miracles, then you wouldn’t understand. Andy Warner has just escaped from a zombie research facility in Portland, Oregon, where he’s been subjected to experimental testing for the past year. With Christmas just days away, Andy figures that donning a jolly old St. Nick costume to throw off his would-be captors is just the ticket. But he never expects to encounter a sweet, lonesome nine-year-old girl who not only reminds Andy of the family he’s lost but who thinks he’s the real Santa. He also doesn’t count on being recognized as last year’s national quasi-celebrity by a clandestine group of decaying supporters who look to him for leadership. For the living and the undead, this unforgettable holiday tale will truly put on display just who is gnawing and who is nice. . . .
The eeriness of spectral visitors is not all that haunts Ebenezer Scrooge. Since his youth Ebenezer Scrooge’s world has been one of death. The dead roam the land and he is the most ruthless zombie slayer and seeks nothing but to eradicate this plague from the world and the coin to do it. So begins A Zombie Christmas Carol, an expanded version of the beloved classic by Charles Dickens, showing a dark world where Ebenezer Scrooge had to harden himself to fight the undead but was it at a higher cost than even he realized, was his methodology against the zombies the only thing his fellow man needs to survive or his there more to the holiday spirit of mankind, as the three Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet To Come, dispatched by his old zombie slaying partner Jacob Marley illuminate Scrooge on other aspects of his past exploits and his future fate if shadows remain unchanged; blood spilling zombie mayhem may not be the worst fate for Ebenezer Scrooge.
Fourteen-year-old Jake MacRae’s life is spinning out of control. He’s making all the wrong choices — gambling, drinking, hanging around gang members and now he’s been asked to make a special delivery. What should he do? Jake knows either way that his decision will seal his fate, but what he doesn’t realize is that this choice might not only destroy his life but the lives of those close to him. Before Jake has a chance to make up his mind, he receives a mysterious text message inviting him to a flash party on a midnight subway train. As Jake steps off the platform and onto the ghostly 1950s-style Gloucester car, he has no idea he has just boarded a train bound for his worst nightmare. And what’s more — he can’t get off!
