Necromancers have filled Constantinople with zombies! No, not that Constantinople. Constantinople, Illinois, a nucleus of urban sprawl in the middle of midwestern soybean fields. Codex Nekromantia is the chronicle of the survivors of the zombie catastrophe. Well, survivors makes them sound organized. Stragglers is more accurate - how can the self-raised corpse of the city's founder count as having survived anything? Greg X. Graves tells the story of life, love, necromancy, the fragile human condition when caught between the jaws of a very robust human condition, and wholesale zombie slaughter.
