|The War on Horror|
What happens when the zombie apocalypse turns out to be a zombie aberration?
Three years have passed since the rising of the undead, and life has more or less returned to normal.
Zombie encounters are now few and far between. The undead are more of a nuisance than a menace; they are less likely to sink their teeth into unsuspecting civilians than they are to be attacked by vigilantes and rabid lynch mobs.
Laws have been passed for the zombies' own protection, and they are safely and humanely quarantined from society.
Dead Rite, an undead management and control firm, suddenly finds itself on the brink of bankruptcy. The zombie population is dwindling and the bills are piling up.
So when a lucrative opportunity unexpectedly presents itself, it seems almost too good to be true.
A tale of misfits, weirdos, outcasts, alcoholics, trust fund activists, dead-head hippies, sleazy politicians and psychotic hillbillies; all foot soldiers fighting in the war on horror.
|Genre: Humorous Horror|
