Here’s what The Infects is not:
1. A beautifully written coming of age story.
2. A compelling paranormal romance (although there is plenty of romance, mostly it’s just normal.)
3. A book that has murmurings, whisperings, pantings, breathlessings, or multi-generational love stories.
4. Full of mysterious messages in bottles.
5. Teeming with pirates.
Here’s what The Infects is:
1. A beautifully written flesh-neutral appetizer menu.
2. A reasonably compelling but fairly cheap excuse to make jokes about brains.
3. A book that has chompings, gnawings, fleeings, shotgunnings, screamings, and multi-generational fear stories.
4. Full of mysterious messages that aren’t so mysterious when you realize the entire book is really just one long coded message, and that message is “RUN!”
5. Totally metal, in a very non-pirate way. And, also, teeming with just the sort of breathtaking and lovingly nuanced prose that wins awards, medals, and bartender’s phone numbers.
Thanks for stopping by, Sean! :)
A feast for the brain, this gory and genuinely hilarious take on zombie culture simultaneously skewers, pays tribute to, and elevates the horror genre.To find out more about Sean and his books, head on over to his website/ Facebook/
Seventeen-year-old Nero is stuck in the wilderness with a bunch of other juvenile delinquents on an "Inward Trek." As if that weren’t bad enough, his counselors have turned into flesh-eating maniacs overnight and are now chowing down on his fellow miscreants. As in any classic monster flick worth its salted popcorn, plentiful carnage sends survivors rabbiting into the woods while the mindless horde of "infects" shambles, moans, and drools behind. Of course, these kids have seen zombie movies. They generate "Zombie Rules" almost as quickly as cheeky remarks, but attitude alone can’t keep the biters back. Serving up a cast of irreverent, slightly twisted characters, an unexpected villain, and an ending you won’t see coming, here is a savvy tale that that’s a delight to read — whether you’re a rabid zombie fan or freshly bitten — and an incisive commentary on the evil that lurks within each of us.
