The news here is two-fold. My book, "Zaphod Zombie: Living Impaired Among the Unimpaired Living" only needs a little over 200 downloads to clear the 1k mark on Amazon Kindle this month. Since today is the last day of the May, I have to be realistic and not expect a surprising Zaphod Zombie Download Bonanza.
(Although if you want an ALTERNATE PERSPECTIVE on the mythos behind the Miami Zombie, the idea of the undead in the real world, and whether or not unlifers really are cannibals, it's worth downloading my book here!)
Secondly, Zaphod picked up another review on Barnes & Noble. (Personal plea: does ANYONE leave reviews on iTunes? If you have an iOS device, throw me a bone, please! It's not like I'm charging you, right?)
Here's a selection from the 4-star review:
"The author reveals the darkness of societal bigotry and racism by making the main character "living impaired" and giving us the opportunity to see the world through his eyes. The author deftly uses humor, subtle plot twists, and quirky characters to open our eyes to a true human problem. […] All-in-all, I highly recommend this book."
As more time has passed since writing about Zaphod Zombie, the more I've created a fantasy about the book being more than just a quick, funny read (it is). I've honestly begun to wonder if I had written something with true philosophical depth that could potentially be a meaningful piece of work.
I've shared that notion with maybe one or two people and it is, well, something special to see the sentiment in a random review. Could Zaphod Zombie really be an important piece of literature?
Or is it just a collection of zombie penis jokes?
