Read What I Think About Books With Pictures
So a few months ago I asked my buddy Stewie about HorrorTalk, the site he writes for. They put up a bunch of Horror movie and book reviews, but they didn’t have any comics. I offered to write some comic reviews and after a bit I was promoted to staff, writing more reviews. I’ve been alternating my trade paperback readings, doing one for my own personal reading and then one for HorrorTalk. Granted, they’re all for me because they’re my books that I own but Spider-Man is not a Horror book.
Anyway, my reviews are all up on HorrorTalk and all the comic book ones can be found here. I did a book review for Sharp Teeth too. Now with a few reviews under my belt of stuff I already owned, I’ve been getting more involved in the reviews for other stuff. My first review copy of a book arrived today and I am really looking forward to reading it.
It’s called Breaking News: An Autozombiography.
Set in Worthing on the south coast of England, the 300-page novel – which has been four years in the writing – tells the tale of two zombie film-fans who already know what to do in the event of such an outbreak. They know what to arm themselves with and how to survive, but everyone else seems a little preoccupied! They seek shelter atop an ancient Iron Age hill fort on the West Sussex Downs and are soon joined by friends and enemies alike.
Sounds cool, right? I’m going to read this for HorrorTalk and then give it to Monica to read because she’s been planning how to survive the zombie apocalypse in our apartment building for some time. Oh, and I’m marrying her in a month.
Also, I still need to write my bio for HorrorTalk. I’m not really sure to write yet.
