alienIn a satirical combination of two end-of-the-world scenarios, a zombie plague is quickly followed by an alien invasion – in a time when humanity is already struggling with vampires.

Landing dead center at a college campus swarming with zombies, the aliens soon realize that their abduction mission is going to be quite a bit more complicated than they’d imagined. The presence of vampires only makes the situation worse.

Will the human race prevail, or be forced to relocate to an alien planet? Is there any way to reverse the zombie plague? Is the plague contagious to aliens, and can an alien be turned into a vampire? What if a vampire alien became a zombie, then was bitten by a radioactive spider and then possessed by the ghost of a robot werewolf? That last part doesn’t happen in the story, but what if it did?

“I could not find anything I disliked about this book. It is a joyous romp through the sci-fi genre, cheekily alluding to major stalwarts of the genre such as Star Wars, Twilight, the X-Files, and numerous zombie novels.”

“This is entirely lovable and funny as can be. If you like satire with a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy feel to it, this book is for you. I enjoyed every minute of it.” 

Author note:  People have compared it (in most cases favorably) to Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. One reviewer referred to it as “second rate Douglas Adams” but I took it as a compliment. Mr. Adams’ work is clearly “first rate Douglas Adams,” but since he’s deceased and subsequently incapable of providing new material, “second rate” is, unfortunately, the best you can get these days.
