Publisher's Summary

From Chicago Horror author Wayne Allen Sallee comes this collection of zombie stories, told in the way only Sallee can - brutal, stark, filled with pain. Jay Bonansinga, co-author of The Walking Deadand best-selling author of Perfect Victimand Pinkerton's War says of the title story: "Chicago has its share of treasures - deep dish, the Bean, Kingston's blues, and Wayne Allen Sallee. Toiling in the stubborn vineyard of short fiction for most of his career, Sallee reaches a sort of a literary apogee with his brilliant and brutal horror novella For You, The Living. Ostensibly a plague tale, told in classic Lovecraftian diary form, Sallee's yarn manages to deftly mingle the deeply personal with the gruesomely Grand Guignol. Riveting, ghastly, hilarious, creepy, and unforgettably Wayne-like, For You, the Living is at once a wholly original take on the zombie apocalypse genre while at the same time a heart-wrenching love story. This one will haunt you forever, folks. Highest recommendation!”

    "Hold on to your hats folks!"

    For You the Living, the first story and by far my favorite, really surprised me by the uniqueness and originality of a reinventing of the zombie genre. The zombies were not just undead mindless waking corpses, they somewhat autonomous with sexual pleasure the thing they were after. For You the Living was brutal, gory, and very graphic and a must listen to fans of zombie audiobooks. Orifices, Because was just a straight up and twisted serial killer horror. This is one of those stories that make you wonder about the sanity of the author and how in the hell did he come up with this. In the Shank of the Night completely bizarre twisted and graphic detective drama that I will not even try to describe any more, you need to experience to understand my shortness of words with this one. My only complaints are that

    Nils Ilgresson expresses the exact voice and mannerisms that I expected for all three protagonists that have had the experiences depicted in this compilation. While the stories were great the narration made the entire audiobook experience even that much better. Ilgresson added little subtleties to the tone of his voice, breathing pattern that fit the characters perfectly.

    "a little gruesome but quite good"

    Both the writing and the performance capture the mood of the piece and keep your attention. I'll be looking for more Sallee
