This is the highly hilarious sequel to "Breather", proving that a zombie novel can be thought provoking, gruesome, and side-splitting funny. S. G. Browne has created zombies that retain intelligence without the mindless bloodlust of Romero's zombies. Andy Warner is a sympathetic character, even while chowing down on the homeless. I will be looking for this author's next book since it is sure to be a treat for zombie fans.
Andy Warner has spent months in a zombie research facility, but after his escape he finds himself in a Santa suit determined to bring Christmas to not only zombies but also a human girl. Can Andy manage to pull off his plans for a happy holiday and survive long enough to help the zombie rights movement? When zombies end up eating Santa Claus, will Andy wind up on the naughty list?
“One of America’s best satiric novelists” (Kirkus Reviews), S. G. Browne seamlessly gift wraps this horrific and hilarious sequel to his “extremely strong” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) zombie novel Breathers.
He sees you when you’re sleeping . . . he knows when you’re undead.
How does the leader of a failed zombie civil rights movement from California rescue a group of his undead brethren and help a lonely Breather girl as he hides from a band of medical researchers while disguised as Santa Claus?
If you’ve never believed in Christmas miracles, then you wouldn’t understand.
Andy Warner has just escaped from a zombie research facility in Portland, Oregon, where he’s been subjected to experimental testing for the past year. With Christmas just days away, Andy figures that donning a jolly old St. Nick costume to throw off his would-be captors is just the ticket. But he never expects to encounter a sweet, lonesome nine-year-old girl who not only reminds Andy of the family he’s lost but who thinks he’s the real Santa. He also doesn’t count on being recognized as last year’s national quasi-celebrity by a clandestine group of decaying supporters who look to him for leadership. For the living and the undead, this unforgettable holiday tale will truly put on display just who is gnawing and who is nice. . . .
