URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection - Don Roff, Chris Lane


The year is 2011, and what starts as a pervasive and inexplicable illness ends up as a zombie infestation that devastates the world's population. Taking the form of an illustrated journal found in the aftermath of the attack, this pulse-pounding, suspenseful tale of zombie apocalypse follows biologist Dr Robert Twombly as he flees from city to countryside and heads north to Canada, where -- he hopes -- the living dead will be slowed by the colder climate. Encountering scattered humans and scores of the infected along the way, he fills his notebook with graphic drawings of zombies and careful observations of their behaviour, along with terrifying tales of survival. This frightening new contribution to the massively popular zombie resurgence will keep fans on the edge of their seats right up to the very end.


If you love the undead then this is a title that is a must own. Written from a personal point of view of the fictional character alongside being treated as a field journal its not only novel and entertaining but a title that will have you rereading pretty quickly. Quirky, adaptive and above all pretty mesmerising it’s a title that has been grabbed more than once from other Zombie fans when they’ve visited my home. Great fun.
