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!

"The most inventive zombie book in years!"
by Robert Kirkman, author of The Walking Dead and Marvel Zombies,
"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."
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
