When his village is overrun by the undead, young Jesse must flee into the wilderness armed only with his wits…and an old M-16 assault rifle. After rescuing a woman who is about to give birth at any moment, he learns she is burdened with a secret that could change the world. In a land overrun with zombies, bandits, militiamen, and hideous, fanged creatures called “smilers,” the duo’s greatest threat is the father of the woman’s unborn child: a thinking, speaking zombie known as… Doctor Vampire.

Arriving 1 April from writer M. Shaw and Tenebrous Press, One Hand To Hold One Hand To Carve, a novella
Two halves of a human cadaver awaken on a cold morgue slab. The two distinct personalities, Left and Right, remember nothing of their previous life as a singular body. Bound by necessity to carve out an existence on the fringes of society, the two brothers have very different ideas of the life they want. Their impending schism will lead each on his own frightening path; one forward to a new life, one backward to the origin of their struggle. One Hand to Hold, One Hand to Carve is a Weird and surreal Body Horror journey that redefines familial bonds and what it means to be an individual.
