The zombie apocalypse has already ended. The government nipped the problem in the bud before it got out of hand. But now Henry, an aspiring filmmaker in Los Angeles, is getting a request from his old friend Sam Kranson. Sam Kranson says they need to go run an errand in Las Vegas. There's a hefty payday for the job. And it involves capturing a real live zombie.But that can't be true, can it? Are there zombies out there in the Nevada desert? Or has Sam Kranson finally lost his mind? And more importantly: Will Henry's loving girlfriend Teresa strangle him if he goes on this adventure with Sam?Part horror, part comedy, all madness and suspense, Love & Zombies is a lunatic burn through three days in the life of Henry—days in which he battles to stay alive, and get back to his love without becoming (un)dead. ***“I enjoyed the HELL out of this book! Witty, action-packed, and ridiculously entertaining.” —Jeff Strand"LOVE & ZOMBIES is hilarious! A very different voice from Shapiro. This is not your father's zombie story. Or your cousin's. And probably not your girlfriend's, either. She'll know why. Oozing with fun, humor, and a whole lot of undead tongue poking through hole in cheek, LOVE & ZOMBIES is a fresh, delightful spin. Rom-Zom-Shoot-Your-Mom!" —John Palisano" Hilariously depraved and disgusting, thoroughly lewd and mean as hell but not without grace notes of humanity, LOVE & ZOMBIES is a much-needed cattle-prod to the ass of the zombie subgenre." —Scott Bradley, co-author of THE DARK and co-editor of THE BOOK OF LISTS HORROR"Eric Shapiro's Love and Zombies is an all out thrill ride. It's shot through with sex, drugs and rock & roll, but don't let that fool you. Shapiro writes with a street smart sensibility and a deep and abiding empathy for his characters. There's no shortage of zombie stories out there, but this one is in a class by itself. Great, great read!" —Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of INHERITANCE and DEAD CITY“With Love & Zombies, Eric Shapiro has given us a fast paced, insane and in my opinion, a fun and kick-ass zombie tale that is sure to make any horror fiction fan happy.” —Peter Schwotzer, Famous Monsters of Filmland

The Underdwelling
With a kid on the way, Boyd needed the job bad. But the idea of going underground at the Hobart Mine, down into the dark labyrinth of tunnels to get at the raw ore, left him with a brooding sense of unease. Maybe it was the fact that his father had died down in the mines or maybe it was something much worse. Digging a new drift down in Level #8, the lowest level of the mine, an immense shaft opens up. Boyd and a few others volunteer to explore it. Some 400 feet down, they find a passage that leads to an immense cavern from prehistory. A petrified world.A prehistoric graveyard.Then a cave-in traps them down there. In the darkness and dank shadows of a fossilized world, they realize they are not alone. Something has woken in the stone.Something ancient and terrible and coldly intelligent. And it is lonely.

Beyond the Crossroads: The Devil and the Blues Tradition (New Directions in Southern Studies)
The devil is the most charismatic and important figure in the blues tradition. He's not just the music's namesake ("the devil's music"), but a shadowy presence who haunts an imagined Mississippi crossroads where, it is claimed, Delta bluesman Robert Johnson traded away his soul in exchange for extraordinary prowess on the guitar. Yet, as scholar and musician Adam Gussow argues, there is much more to the story of the devil and the blues than these cliched understandings.In this groundbreaking study, Gussow takes the full measure of the devil's presence. Working from original transcriptions of more than 125 recordings released during the past ninety years, Gussow explores the varied uses to which black southern blues people have put this trouble-sowing, love-wrecking, but also empowering figure. The book culminates with a bold reinterpretation of Johnson's music and a provocative investigation of the way in which the citizens of Clarksdale, Mississippi, managed to rebrand a commercial hub as "the crossroads" in 1999, claiming Johnson and the devil as their own.
