Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Gil's All Night Diner, where zombie attacks are a regular occurrence and you never know what might be lurking in the freezer....

Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley. But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

Seems someone's out to drive Loretta from the Diner, and more than willing to raise a little Hell on Earth if that's what it takes. Before Duke and Earl get to the bottom of the Diner's troubles, they'll run into such otherworldly complications as undead cattle, an amorous ghost, a jailbait sorceress, and the terrifying occult power of pig-latin. And maybe - just maybe - the End of the World, too.

Gory, sexy, and flat-out hilarious, Gil's All Fright Diner will tickle your funnybone - before ripping it out of its socket!

    "A fun listen, lite comedic fantasy/horror."

    Made for a pleasant ride to NYC for me and my wife during Thanksgiving Day. An easy book to listen to. Don't expect Steven King, more like Cthulu lite. Quite amusing.

    "characters take time to get used to"

    I've read 3 other Martinez books and have enjoyed them all.

    The characters take a little time to warm up to this time round, but going along for the ride was worth it once I could see where they were coming from.

    "Lots of fun – urban fantasy at its best"


    Very funny, with interesting plot ideas. Think of what would happen in Douglas Addams tried to write Monster Hunter International and you will have some idea of this book.

    "Fun"

    Not quite as good as the other A. Lee Martinez books, but the narrator is excellent.

    "Really entertaining!"

    Listened on my way to work and back. Kept my mind off traffic. Im sure other commuters wondered why I was laughing so hard.
    It was really entertaining and fun!

    Story
    "Martinez has too much fun, sometimes."
    What made the experience of listening to Gil's All Fright Diner the most enjoyable?

    Narration was great. Characters were all distinct and believable when heard through the narrator's voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was humorous without being heartless. It managed to hit all the right chords when it came to characters, places, and action. This is a story that is just plain fun, with just enough pathos to remind you that life isn't all jokes and tropes.


    Any additional comments?

    What a a fun book. Martinez loves to make quirky, flawed characters that all seem to feel like they are the protagonist. The two heroes of this story are just plain ridiculous, and it works.

    "Fun romp!"

    This was a fun romp, having irreverent play with vampire, werewolf, ghost and dark magic lore. My favorite book from this author is Emperor Mollusk vs the Giant Brain....non stop action and comedy!

    "campy, supernatural fun"

    Think Buffy, but with two best friends, a ghost dog, a teenahed girl looking for godhood, an her horny boyfriend. Not my usual, but campy fun.
