Amazing Stories reviews ZOMBIE JESUS AND OTHER TRUE STORIES

Matt Mitrovich has written a review for AMAZING STORIES of ZOMBIE JESUS AND OTHER TRUE STORIES, which features my short story, “Sic Semper Versipellis” and says he “found all the stories to be quite satisfying”.

Horror and alternate history are difficult genres to mash up. You just don’t see them together very often and despite my firm belief in the adaptability of alternate history, it is rare when you see an author effectively combine horror and alternate history tropes into a compelling read. When it is usually tried we are presented with a dystopia (any Axis victory scenario will do) or some Lovecraftian inspired tale (i.e. “A Colder War” by Charles Stross or “The Beast of the Bosporus” by Matthew Quinn). The ability, however, to convey sheer terror to the reader while asking them to accept a counterfactual setting, may be too much for their suspension of disbelief to handle.

That brings us to ZOMBIE JESUS AND OTHER TRUE STORIES, an alternate history horror anthology edited by Max Booth III and published by Dark Moon Books…
