“A fresh and original take on a somewhat overripe genre.”
Schneider Wrack was never a dissident. He doesn’t think. But he’s been convicted as a dissident, and in the ancient city of Lipos-Tholos, at the heart of the star-spanning Lemniscatus, the sentence for sedition is death. Death, and then reanimation, shipped out to vast whaling ships on the terrible world of Ocean, to work until you fall apart – or something gets you.
And now Schneider has woken up, trapped in rotting limbs and a fading brain, arm-deep in the fat and stinking meat of a colossus, and he’s not happy. From its unsteady start in the stench and brine of Ocean to its perilous quest through the jungle world of Grand Amazon, Schneider’s revolution will never be particularly fun or easy, but sometimes a zombie’s gotta do what a zombie’s gotta do.
Why We’re Excited About This Book:
Here at This Is Horror we love nothing more than a good zombie novel, and there have certainly been an abundance of them in the last decade or so. There hasn’t been one quite like The Death and Life of Schneider Wrack, though, and that alone has us hungering for a taste of this fresh and original take on a somewhat overripe genre. If the actual book is a fraction as entertaining and interesting as the advance blurb then we’re in for a treat.
The Death and Life of Schneider Wrack is out on 23 May 2017 and is available from Amazon.
