What’s the only thing that can make Christmas carols and holiday-related stories even more enjoyable during this time of year? Why, adding zombies, of course!
So to kick off the 2010 Holiday season here at The G.O.R.E. Score, I want to present to you a very unique anthology novel, “The Undead That Saved Christmas.” Lyle Perez is the editor of this book, and its apparent to anyone who knows anything about the genesis of the anthology that this is not your average zombie antho. As Perez explains in the Introduction to the book, he created this anthology specifically to help foster children, as all of the net proceeds from the book’s sales will go directly to Hugs Foster Family Agency to help them give their foster children a very Merry Christmas.
Perez’ passion to this cause and this project are exceedingly commendable, and many folks quickly heard about this project and helped him take up the cause. In addition to the variety of amateur writers and artists whose works were included in the book, the average zombie fan will also recognize some familiar names as well, including S.G. Browne, Tony Faville, Cal Miller, and TW Brown.
Good cause and definitely something I have wanted to check out. So many good zombie books…so little time!
Thanks for the great review!
