Author: Christopher Anton (Convulsed with laughter)
Subject: Clever and very witty book

A zombie romp through alternative histories and conspiracy theories, told in the style of an old-fashioned Victorian English ghost story.

Packs in a lot of clever ideas and twists and turns for a novella, rewriting and interweaving history and fairytales with irreverence. Like one of the reviewers above, I too would have liked this to have been a longer tale - I felt that it stopped short of fully exploring the possibilities, and thought the onslaught of ideas needed the space of a full-length novel.

The humour (and there is a lot of it) is part-farce and part-Dickensian (the protagonist Anton's landlord is named 'Gutterskunk' in true 'Oliver Twist' style), slamming together alien shape-shifters with Lewis Carroll's Wonderland world, as well as some of the most loved, and some of the most reviled figures in history, from Obama to Hitler.

Faversham the gentleman zombie is memorable, delectable and horrific (and a warning for the squeamish: Meade pulls no punches in describing his more odoriferous and homicidal qualities).

An entertaining, off-the-wall tale.
