Overview

“A witty and unexpected take on the zombie genre; I had a great time.”
—Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels

 

Subtitled “A Zombie Memoir,” Brains looks at America’s favorite walking-dead flesh-eaters from an audaciously original and deliciously gruesome new perspective. Debut author Robin Becker blazes new ground with this story of former college professor-cum-sentient zombie Jack Barnes, who recounts the tale of the resistance he organized in the wake of the recent zombie apocalypse. World War Z; Shaun of the Dead; Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies… Becker tops them all with Brains—a witty, tasty treat for anyone who every spent a midnight glued to a classic George A. Romero zombie epic!

What People are Saying About This

Jonathan Maberry

“Smart, original, funny and fascinating, Brains: A Zombie Memoir by Robin Becker sends the zombie genre shambling in a fresh, new direction. Go on, take a bite.”

Charlaine Harris

“Barnes, a rare sentient zombie, tries to develop a program to create a zombie-human nation, but sadly, all he wants is a brain. Yours. A witty and unexpected take on the zombie genre; I had a great time.”

Mario Acevedo

“A zany disembowelment of American pop culture. Snarky. Gory. Out of control. Dementedly delicious...brainilingus!”

David Wellington

“Witty and clever, Brains is a thinking zombie’s book about what it means to be human, or almost human, and what we all owe each other whether we like it or not.”

S.G. Browne

“A zombie delight for the thinking man (and woman), Brains is a feast of literary parallels, pop culture references, and historical metaphors, with enough blood, guts, and brains to satisfy any zombie lover’s appetite. Smart, gory, and fun.”
