Zombie Jam by David J. Schow


Cimarron Street Books is pleased to exhume David J. Schow's collection ZOMBIE JAM in an all-new expanded edition, with even more illustrations by the best damned zombie artist around, the justly famous Bernie Wrightson!

Zombie fiction is . . . well, dead.

Here's what the critics have said about ZOMBIE JAM:

DarkEcho calls ZOMBIE JAM “a retrospective of Schow’s vivid zombie phase. No one else has ever done zombies exactly his way.”

Booklist called the collection “ghoulish fun!”

Publisher’s Weekly added: “Thanks to bouncy prose and an incisive wit, Schow makes even the outrageous and grisly morsels of Grand Guignol seem palatable.”

Sarah Meador of Rambles called it “the perfect testament to the horror of these voiceless eating machines . . . Even if you’ve read all the stories of ZOMBIE JAM in original release ― and you’re probably lying if you say you have ― you need this book.”
