I'm not one to let a great opportunity to go un-seized, and between Zaphod Zombie, Halloween, and a fresh review from the lovely Tripp Hudgins (yes, Zaphod Zombie has been reviewed by a Baptist Minister/Liturgical Studies PhD student -- whaaaat?! Either Zaphod Zombie is just that amazing -- it is -- or Tripp has a few unaccounted minutes in his day that he has no idea what to do with).
As of RIGHT THIS MINUTE, Zaphod Zombie is only $1.99 across all the major ebook distributors and there is no better piece of fiction to sink your teeth into today.
Here's Tripp's review, as posted on Amazon.com:
With the book Zaphod the Zombie, Jordan Krumbine establishes himself among the likes of Saul Below and Chaim Potok. Okay. Maybe not.
Nonetheless, engaging post-modern deconstructionist thought and critical race theory, Krumbine offers a distinct look into the life of Zaphod Zombie, the undead protagonist. Sound ridiculous? Maybe you are one of those who are inclined toward discriminating against the undead. This book offers a window into a world where zombies are loved for the people they are...well, were. Are? It's so difficult to know! Krumbine leaves us guessing at the true mortality status of Zaphod. At times Zaphod is the most lively character in the story.
Krumbine uses the character Zaphod to explore the nihilistic philosophical proclivities of our age. Is Zaphod the mythical undead or just your average guy struggling to find meaning in a world devoid of opportunities to find meaningful existence. He works at a fast food, plays in a terrible punk band, is tempted into the pornography industry by an aspiring porn mogul, befriends a You Tube vlogger (the aforementioned aspiring porn mogul), and eventually finds himself working in a corporate cubicle where he finds love...or at least a good shag.
Right. So this all sounds insane and there's no possible way that this review isn't just some other joke. I get that. Do yourself a favor. Read the book, enjoy your Halloween, and, when you are done, let me know if Zaphod isn't exactly the kind of hero we need right now.
The best of us are the re-animated.
