Review: Zombie Youth: Book 2: Borrowed Time by H.E.Goodhue

Zombie Youth: Borrowed Time is a masterful example of the way a work can defy target audience and genre: a true crossover for fans of horror, armageddon, and coming of age (with zombies).

Fuchs who is perhaps best known for writing about zombies. Blood of My World consists of three novellas—Discovery of Death, Memories of Death, […]
