I just got my first review from Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead. And I am in shock. Euphoric shock! Joe writes:
"I loved your book. I thought it was a really smart read. You've written a winner here, and I hope my blurb does it justice."
Do it justice? Does it and more! Here's Joe's blurb:
"Matt Darst is a truly original talent. His quick pacing, encyclopedic grasp of literature and history, and spellbinding mix of social commentary and jaw-dropping action make Dead Things a first rate triumph. With a dash of Bradbury, hints of Huxley and Orwell, and heavy dollops of smart pop culture, Darst is taking the zombie novel in a really cool new direction, and you’re going to love every page of it. Hang on, if you can, because this guy has written a future history that will rattle every nerve you’ve got."
