We’ve all come down from a meth-induced bender at the start of the zombie apocalypse. Fiend tells the tale of a young man’s struggle with the gnawing affection of the undead and his own addiction. Follow Chase as he gets to know his charming neighbors, such as a little girl and her dog (she’s eating the dog); a web-entrepreneur (who may or may not have turned during her adults only web-cam show); or worst of all his good friend Typewriter (who is holding out on him, man!). Zombie lovers could get addicted to something this good. -Steve.

This book was recommended to me over and over again, and is a a favorite of the Mysterious Galaxy staff. Who is Zampano? Why was he obsessed with the Navidson Record; a movie that no one had ever seen, yet is written about and analyzed so closely? How could he see the movie if he was blind? Johnny Truant has these questions, and he helps the reader along through the story. If you’re curious about this book, flip through a few pages and see just how intricate a web this story weaves, spoiler free. Full Color Illustrated Paperback. Pantheon Books $21.00-Steve
