Zombie, Ohio

“No one is safe in a zombie apocalypse. Not even a zombie.”
When rural Ohio college professor Peter Mellor dies in an automobile accident during a zombie outbreak, he is reborn as a highly intelligent (yet somewhat amnesiac) member of the living dead. With society crumbling around him and violence escalating into daily life, Peter quickly learns that being a zombie isn’t all fun and brains. Humans—unsympathetic, generally, to his new proclivities—try to kill him at nearly every opportunity. His old friends are loath to associate with him. And he finds himself inconveniently addicted to the gooey stuff inside of people’s heads.

As if all this weren’t bad enough, Peter soon learns that his automobile accident was no accident at all. Faced with the harrowing mystery of his death, Peter resolves to use his strange zombie “afterlife” to solve his own murder.

Skillfully combining the genres of horror, humor, and film noir, Zombie, Ohio weaves an enthralling and innovative tale that any fan of the current zombie craze is sure to relish. Followers of detective and horror fiction alike will find something to love about Zombie, Ohio—a tale of murder, mystery, and the walking dead. (Goodreads)

This book is keeping me turning the pages. More of a review will be forthcoming, as I get closer to the end of the book. Peter is a zombie to watch. The combination of his cluelessness, vulnerability and compassion is heart warming. At the same time you feel bad for him and all he has endured, he goes and eats a couple of sorority girls. Go figure.


  1. That looks great. I can't wait to hear more.

  2. I can't put it down. Supposed to be working on my own book, but wow. Very awesome. Peter the zombie rocks.
