Product Description

Product Description

Special 99c promotional price for a limited time!

What happens when a parasitic fungus cross-breeds with some primo marijuana? Very. Hungry. Zombies.

A genre-bending horror comedy from Australian author Richard Carnegie

Join young Australian policeman Tim Carlyle as he comes face to face with the strangest of "zombie apocalypses".

A local biotech company has been working with a strain of the Cordyceps fungus, which is famous for turning hapless ants into "zombies" before, quite unreasonably, devouring them from the inside.

Unfortunately for everyone concerned, on the property next to the biotech’s laboratory, local petty criminal Craig Mawson is cultivating a clandestine marijuana crop. When spores from the Cordyceps cross-pollinate with the marijuana, things get bad. Really bad. It starts with Mawson turning into a very stoned zombie who infects his mother Rhonda, who goes on to eat his father Bill, underpants and all.

It only goes downhill from there.

The infected seem to have The Munchies, but not the kind that can be sated by a packet of Pringles Sour Cream & Chives . Nothing short of actual flesh will suffice for those infected.

Fate assembles a motley crew around Tim to help contain the outbreak. From his kind-hearted boss, Sergeant Graham Gibson, to the local naturopath and hippie Janet, to the local right wing military fanatic Dick Kelly - who has, at various times, claimed to be not only ex-SAS but also ex-Navy Seal and ex-French Foreign Legion. Poor Dick is suffering from PTSD because, as he rightly states, once you have gunned down an entire village in an Apache helicopter, you can never be the same again. Can Dick get his head back in the game to help the group survive?

Eventually the group realises that it is not just the infected they need to worry about and they will need to draw on all their disparate skills to overcome The Munchies.

˃˃˃ A tale of stoned zombies unlike any you have ever read...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Munchies by Richard Carnegie 19 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Im not sure if the munchies was meant to make me laugh but I did anyway. Maybe I'm just an old hippie who spent too much time around "puffers" but I can't get the thought of them turning into "zombies" out of my head. Get this book, it's brilliant, and I'm away to cook some quorn for dinner. Cheers Richard.x

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't bother to finish this one 16 July 2013

This needs some serious editing. Repetitive and not very well thought out. I've read over 100 Kindle books, and this is the only one I didn't bother to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super fun zombie romp from down under! 24 April 2013

Super pot that turns people into meat eating zombies? Yep! This is just a fun little book with unlikely hero's saving a small town. Some extremely funny situations add to the over all entertainment value. This is a book I will read over and over. Too good to let it get away, so get it now.
