Review: Road Trip of the Living Dead by Mark Henry

rad-tripCelebrity party girl Amanda Feral is back form the dead, and hungrier than ever for a good time. With her zombie gal pal Wendy and vampy gay sidekick Gil, this stone cold fox is dressed to kill, on the prowl, and ready to take a big juicy bit out of Seattle’s supernatural nightlife. But what’s a zombie chick to do when her “Mommie Dearest” gets sick? If you’re Amanda Feral, you can either ignore the wicked old witch – or bury the past by visiting Ethel before she kicks it. Amanda’s not thrilled about the idea of crossing three states just to be criticized. But Wendy, who’s always looking for fresh meat , is up for the adventure. And Gil, who just launched his “luxury” resurrection business, needs to disappear because a pissed-off client is out for his blood.

First, the pack their stiletto pumps and plasma into a skeevy rattrap on wheels that used to be a Winnebago. Then, with a little help from a Korean-ghost hood ornament, a masochist named Fishhook, and a slew of “moderately accurate” psychics, they hit the highway – their way. Pf course, they’ll have to navigate past some neo-Nazi skinheads, a horny dust devil, a hunky werewolf cop (who could pass for an underwear model) and an unsightly horde of Kmart shoppers. but for this glamorous gang of ghouls this trip is about to take a dangerous detour that could give road kill a brand new meaning…

The terrible trio is back. Amanda Feral has been kind enough to write another memoir with the help of her ghostwriter, Mark Henry. Amanda, Wendy, and Gil set out on a cross country journey so Amanda can pay her respects to her mother who is dying. Amanda doesn’t want to go, but Gil gets in a little trouble with his new business and getting out of town suddenly sounds good. Road Trip of the Living Dead is as gross and gruesome as Happy Hour of the Damned, This is a hard book to review, because while I loved it, it is hard to pinpoint why. It is not like anything else you would be able to find. It is pee in your pants funny and not to be missed.

  1. Thanks Carrie! If I could get Kensington to put the quote “pee-in-your-pants funny” on the mmpb reissue next year, I’d be so happy.

    Question, why didn’t this review show up on my Google alert? Any ideas?
