A nightmarishly absurd story that is like Re-Animator meets Naked Lunch during the zombie apocalypse.
living dead conquered the Earth almost a century ago, leaving only
small isolated communities of survivors spread across the
shattered-earwig landscape. One such community has been locked away in a
New York City high-rise. Breeding like cockroaches for many
generations, their civilization has almost completely deteriorated into a
mess of insane ones and those infested with parasites that mutate flesh
into steel-string sculptures. There is nothing to live for, no chance
for hope. Except for one man, not yet effected by the parasites, who
finds hope after he creates a wife out of the human body parts that
litter the hallways and gets rescued by a group of zombie-shredding
warriors from Japan (where the citizens have evolved into anime-like
mechazoid characters). This tattoo-illustrated avant-garde novel is cult
author Carlton Mellick III at his darkest and most horrific.
