This little book will appeal to all zombie aficionados. Each left-hand page contains a story by Alexander Hartman, while the right-hand pages feature the gorgeously grotesque artwork of award-winning illustrator David Hartman. Appropriately - as the subject matter is zombies - the book's pages are hacked into three parts: top left, beginning of story; middle left, middle of story; bottom left, end of story; top right, zombie head; middle right, zombie torso; bottom right, zombie legs. These hacked-up interchangeable sections give the reader the ability to create over 10,000 short stories and 10,000 zombies. Some fun is to be had creating zombies (such as my personal favourite: axe-split head, buxom serving-wench torso, sea-pirate legs). The novelty quickly wears off, though.
All in all, an innovative and creative little book, but one which won't win any literary awards and - in all but the most ardent zombie-art enthusiast - will lose its flavour rapidly.
