I’m so stoked about this… I love Audio Book. Any time I can I get one to listen to in the car. Love them! Having my own book in Audio – Coolest thing ever.
I want to thank my Publisher, White Feather Press, and Skip Coryell personally for this. I’d also like to thank the Narrator, Jason Clearfield. Lots of different voices in Uprising USA… takes a guy with some serious talent.
And thank you to all my friends for the encouragement. Ahem… buy my audio book? Please?
For those bouncing here to MadOgre.com from hearing about it on the Radio, the books I’ve written about Zombies are in the Uprising Saga. The USA book was the first. It started out as a short story on an internet forum (WeTheArmed.com) and snowballed. Many writers jumped in, adding their own perspective and making their own stories.
This is Literary Junk Food, not to be taken too seriously. Just have fun with it.
I’m still beating my head on Uprising Russia. Other writers are working on Uprising Crusader, Uprising Chosen, and then we’ll have an Uprising Anthology.
This Saturday I will be doing a Book Signing at the Hastings book store in Ogden at 1pm. The location is 340 E 525 N.
Use Google Maps or a Garmin to find it… Not Apple Maps.
I will be kicking it out there on my ZX-11, straight in to Hastings from Ogre Ranch. Afterwards, I will need some foodage, so anyone wants to come hangout and gobble burgers is welcome… And then I have to Jetmoto back as I’ve got obligations to care for Saturday night.
I was asked if I will sign ammo pouches or holsters. Sure. I’ve also signed Kindled, iPads, and a Nook. I will also sign breasts if I must. Anything for my fans.
I’ll be taking pictures too… This is going to be a blast. Talking Zombies, Horror flicks, Prius Destruction… Come on out!
Zombies are still the Ultimate Horror Creature. At no point are Zombies a Romantic Figure or Anti-Hero. At no point are people trying to Make Peace with the Zombies. At no point is there an attempt to Understand the Zombies. Because they are fucking Zombies and absolutely Haunt humanity.
Zombies are in the Bible:
And the LORD will send a plague on all the nations that fought against Jerusalem. Their people will become like walking corpses, their flesh rotting away. Their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.
On that day they will be terrified, stricken by the LORD with great panic. They will fight their neighbors hand to hand.
Zombies are even in the very oldest of our stories, The Epic of Gilgamesh:
I will raise up the dead, and they will devour the living,
I will make the dead outnumber the living!
Zombies are found in every era, in every culture, in every country in the world. They scare us more than anything else and have always done so. And they always will. Which is why Zombies are like Bacon. They make everything better. Even my Music Playlist is Zombie Heavy…
Like many others, I’ve followed the Florida Bath Salt Zombie stories with morbid interest. Drudge has also been putting up articles able a couple Cannibals.
As a public service announcement, we must address the differences between a Zombie and a Cannibal.
Zombies have no will of their own, the wander around as if in a daze, voting Democrat, and they are undead. There is ample proof of this as a great many Registered Democrat Votes in hotly contested districts are indeed from people who have died…. then this Floridian Bath Salt Zombie… Yes, Zombies are real and they are out there.
If they bite you, there is a 90% chance you too might become a zombie. That last 10% chance – that’s your buddy shooting you in the head before you turn. If he is a good friend that is.
Cannibals however are very different. They can be very intelligent, careful planners, and they can craft elaborate traps for their victims. They are still human and are just like the rest of us… except they want to eat the rest of us… My point is they look at act (mostly) like anyone else. You can’t tell who is and who isn’t a Cannibal. But that just makes them all the more dangerous. Cannibals however could be found wearing Turtleneck Sweaters, Popped Collars, Berets, and Tight Pants that are not quite long enough.
The question remains – what to do about these two types of people eaters. The answer is simple. Once identified, the same counter measures and responses work well in both cases. SHOOT THEM IN THE HEAD.
Uprising: UK. My second “Winning the Zombie Apocalypse” book (in a series of four) is now available for the Amazon Kindle.
I really like Uprising: UK. I think it’s an improvement over the USA which felt more rushed. I’ve already got it on my Kindle Reader on my Smart Phone. No formatting errors this time! Booyah! Get your copy now and I’ll sign your Kindle at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show in SLC this weekend.
I am wondering if Zombies are worth more than Werewolves or Vampires now. Hmmm. That would be interesting to know. Zombie popularity is huge. Forget Ann Rice and Edward Cullen. Zombies. They are like Bacon. They make everything better they are added to.
Now, most Zombie stories are about just base survival. Living through the Zombie Apocalypse is good… that’s fine. Uprising is about winning the Apocalypse by doing what few others do. Capitalizing on the situation and taking advantage of opportunities… and crushing evil where it’s found.
