New Mash Up - Zombies Meet War of the Worlds

Catching the latest "mash-up" trend (you've heard of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, right?), author Eric S. Brown takes fans of horror on another literary thrill ride, mashing together zombies and H.G. Wells' classic into The War of the Worlds Plus Blood, Guts, and Zombies (from Coscom Entertainment).

Although I haven't read it myself (and I'm not that into the subgenre, my only zombie stories are benign humor pieces at Bewildering Stories, lol - read "The Hunt Hunt" and "Scary Moments"), it's actually gotten quite a bit of buzz. Here are some links:

+ Ian Randal Strock's review at SFScope
+ Interview at Horror Fiction Review
+ Interview at Fear and Trembling
+ Interview at Associated Content

Eric is also the author of a number of other zombie-related works including, Season of Rot and World War of the Dead. If this is your thing, check him out! Just make sure you haven't eaten recently.
