Hear that? I'm shaking my tail feathers in a happy dance. I should probably record this and give you all a good laugh...
Now on with the real show. I had the opportunity to read one of the most unique books ever. I'm talking Retro Zombie by the ultra cool Jeremy Hawkins, A to Z co-host extraordinaire and all around awesome blog buddy. Here is my review:
"This book is an incredibly unique reading and visual experience, a
provocative work that will leave you talking for hours once you've
turned that last page. How to describe it? It is like reading a
psychedelic guitar riff. The artwork is a wild trip through a carnival
fun house cemetery, each image macabre and trippy,
Accompanying these intense visuals is some wicked brilliant free
verse. The words painted pictures in my mind's eye ran the gamut from
beautiful and frenetic to sensual and ugly. I felt like I was sitting in
some smoky beat club, sipping absinthe with Kerouac and Ginsberg. Retro
Zombie is a visionary work that will blow your mind."
If you love horror, particularly served up literary style, then you must check this book out. Even if you're not into horror, I think you'll be impressed with the images and the verse. Here are the buy links:

Have a great weekend and stay tuned for more good things tomorrow. :
