Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Calling all zombie-philes, video game addicts, grind house nostalgists, and horror movie fanatics—have we got a hard-to-put-down book for you! Zombie Haiku will keep you up late into the night (mostly from the inability to forget that bulging eye staring out at you from page six). It's the touching (albeit cold and clammy) story of a zombie's gradual decay — and here's the unique twist — it's told through the intimate poetry of haiku.

From infection to demise, you'll trod along the journey through deserted streets and barricaded doors for every eye-popping, gut-wrenching, flesh-eating moment right up until the inevitable bullet to the brain. For extra impact, the book is illustrated with over fifty photos and designed with extra blood, guts and gore!

Review:

"The most inventive zombie book in years!" David Wellington, author of Monster Island

Review:

"A thoroughly unique and entertaining experience. Ryan Mecum has quite possibly found the only corner of entertainment not yet infected by the zombie plague — haiku — and made me wonder why it took this long, as the two seem to go together like zombies and brains. I highly recommend it to fans of all things zombie." Robert Kirkman, author of The Walking Dead and Marvel Zombies

Synopsis:

In your hands is a poetry journal written by an undead poet, recounting his firsthand experience during the zombie plague. Little is known about the author before he turned into a zombie, but thanks to his continued writings in this journal - even after his death - you can accompany him from infection to demise. Through the intimate poetry of haiku, the zombie chronicles his epic journey through deserted streets and barricaded doors. Each three-line poem, structured in the classic 5-7-5 syllable structure, unravels a little more of the story. You'll love every eye-popping, gut-wrenching, flesh-eating page

About the Author

Ryan Mecum lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, and spends most of his time watching terrible movies and reading comics. He has seen Evil Dead more times than he would care to mention, and he is a youth pastor at a Presbyterian church.

I picked this up out of curiousity and was immediatey drawn in. I read it from start to finish in one sitting, laughing like an idiot the whole time. This is one of the most clever and hilarious pieces I've read in months. Perfect for us horror fans!
