In your hands is a poetry journal written by an undead poet, recounting his firsthand experience during the zombie plague. Little is known about the author before he turned into a zombie, but thanks to his continued writings in this journal - even after his death - you can accompany him from infection to demise. Through the intimate poetry of haiku, the zombie chronicles his epic journey through deserted streets and barricaded doors. Each three-line poem, structured in the classic 5-7-5 syllable structure, unravels a little more of the story. You'll love every eye-popping, gut-wrenching, flesh-eating page!

More Brains... Some race. Some lurch. Others come crawling, limping, staggering—dragging themselves toward anyone who might still have a pulse. Zombies invade the island of Manhattan, and they are hungry. The story of the zombie apocalypse is told through the eyes of Dawn, a ten-year-old girl who has been well-schooled in the undead because of her father's love of zombie movies. As the zombies approach, Dawn and her dad realize the time has come to implement their Zombie Escape Plan, so they gather friends and escape to the Statue of Liberty. Only... the plan doesn't go quite as expected. Dawn documents their downfall in her haiku journal, where the limb-snapping, eye-popping, bone-crunching zombies eventually make her one of their own. In gory detail, and sometimes channeling her favorite poets, she describes the gruesome scenes before her—and her own frightening impulses.

Dear haiku journal, I think I killed some people. That was no dog bite. This journal contains the poetic musings of a mailman who, after being bitten by what he thinks is a dog, discovers that he is actually now a werewolf. Wreaking havoc wherever he goes, he details his new life and transformations in the 5-7-5 syllable structure of haiku—his poetry of choice. Follow along as our werewolf poet slowly turns from a mostly normal man into the hairy beast that he cannot keep trapped inside. And watch out for carnage when he changes and becomes hungry. No toenail, no entrail, no pigtail will be left behind. And talk about wreaking havoc: His newfound claws and teeth have sent his clothing budget through the roof! He is in love with a woman on his route, but he has never had the courage to tell her. As he fights against his urges during each full moon, he discovers that succumbing to his primal instincts will not only bag him a good meal—it just might help him in his quest for love…Or maybe not.

The Kill Green Chronicles are a series of green, scary stories set in the Midwestern town of Fort Playne, Indiana, that feature characters like Joe Betty. Joe Betty is obsessed with a particular hobby that he enjoys during ordinary time. Killing in Ordinary Time is the first story in the series that follows the regular and sometimes harrowing escapades of Joe Betty. In order to get to know Joe Betty and the bizarre cast of characters that inhabit the Kill Green Chronicles, it is essential to learn about the man who started it all, Joe Betty. Here is a little bit of background on the man and his worldview. “Joe Betty’s daily routine was really just a microcosm of his larger world view. He lived an ordinary life because he believed that his hobby was ordinary. In his mind, he likened it to gourmet cooking, or even cross stitching. Those people who perfected these crafts spent inordinate amounts of time finding the right recipes or patterns. Often, they attended lectures on this type of subject matter or took classes where others were involved. Of course, Joe Betty’s hobby was not the type of activity where it would be a good idea to have others involved. So, he made a life that appeared ordinary from the outside. It was the life he showed to the outer world. Sometimes he even indulged in ordinary pleasures, just like other people”. – Killing in Holiday Time, April Brewster Smythe
