The observant amongst you (or those who go to the website rather than reading the posts on email) may have seen that I have a book downloadable for the Kindle. With the scintillating title of ZOMBIE LESBIAN FLESH EATERS, it’s been doing a surprisingly decent trade. (Good job I have a big family, huh?) It’s had two reviews on Amazon (neither of which were done by me) which really tickle me. Here they are.

The title alone made this worth a look, and I’m delighted to say that this first novel doesn’t disappoint.Mike Cormack has written a wonderfully over-the-top homage to some of the more outrageous and graphic work by the likes of Shaun Hutson, James Herbert in print and Peter Jackson on film (The Rats, Slugs and Braindead spring to mind), allowing his twisted imagination to run gleeful riot through the seedy streets of Aberdeen. It’s almost unbelievably gruesome, but shot through with some wonderfully black humour and more than knowing nod to Bava & Argento’s classic 80s horror, Demons.For this former local, Cormack’s vivid evocation of the strip clubs, kebab shops and dark eerie back streets is uncanny and his larger-than-life characters, in particular the over-the-top military unit straight out of every 80s action movie you ever saw on VHS are as entertaining as they are intentionally ridiculous.The very definition of a guilty pleasure – my only minor moan is that it should have been longer!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Cracking First Novel, 1 July 2012Amazon Verified Purchase (What is this?)This review is from: Zombie Lesbian Flesh Eaters (Kindle Edition)
From the dark and steamy jungles of Africa to the granite city of Aberdeen, this book is excess to say the least. If you are frightened of the dentist then beware of the extremely graphic descriptions in chapter seven, this scene makes the dentist scene in The Marathon Man look like the teddy bears picnic. A cracking first novel .
