About the book…


Hello all.  I was going to post something sarcastic here, about how many people laugh off the idea of zombies. But I won't do that. Because, frankly, I don't find the idea funny.    The only thing I can think of worse than a pandemic circling the globe,  killing off 90 or so percent of the population (which in this day and age, is more than within the realm of possibility), is a pandemic that circles the globe, kills off 90 or so percent of the population, then they get back up and start eating the last 10 percent. This novel is a way to explore what would happen during said event. It's not going to be all gore and viscera (although there will be quite a bit in it).   I will try to take you into the characters minds and hearts, so (hopefully) you're going to care about it if one (or all) of them gets turned into zombie kibble. I won't promise you a happy ending, because this story (like any good literary work) is going to reflect the trials people actually go through in life. I've thrown these characters into the worst case scenario to see who lives, who dies, and what happens when you mix humanity's little quirks, with the hungry hordes. I hope you'll join them, and myself, on the journey. Enjoy...and keep your crowbar handy.

      Hey Ben,

      Glad you’re liking where the book is headed.
      More skull crushing mayhem on the way in upcoming chapters!
      Wait until you get a load of…well, can’t say yet. But something BIG is going to show up.

    Gotta preface by saying I’m a huge zombie fiction fan.

    I’m really enjoying this story, the imagery, the character development, the suspense…I gotta say I’m looking forward to more chapters and hopefully you can publish this, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Keep it up.

      Sorry it took so long to reply, being sick sucks.
      Thank you, right off the bat!
      Hopefully I’ll be able to get another up this week (flu permitting) and publishing will happen. Be it through a house (like Permuted Press) or as an e-book thanks to you and (first time I’ve admitted this to anyone) fewer than 50 shy of a thousand people following the novel right now.

  3. can you please put another chapter up

    • gaijinpunker says:

      Hello Benjamin!

      Sorry it took a couple of days to reply. Have literally been swamped with: finalizing the novel (ended up much longer than I originally intended! a whopping 379 pages!), working on short story for “Ghouls Gone Wild” (an upcoming zombie anthology), and a few pieces of art for same.
      While I would love to post another chapter, as I’m sure you and the rest of the fans want as well (you would not BELIEVE how many e-mails and FB messages I’ve received), I have some news (don’t worry! It’s good!)
      “Keep Your Crowbar Handy” is going to print.
      News forthcoming here shortly!
      I cant thank you enough for wanting for read the rest. Don’t worry, it’s coming!

Got some words of your own? Put em here...!
