And even the un-dead can be stars – for one terrifying night.
Barry Arctic always wanted to be a famous. He knew he'd be good at it. It was just the talent he had a problem with - but that hadn't stopped plenty of others succeeding.
After repeated auditions for the X Factor, Barry finally gets the break he feels he's always deserved.
He's on the path to stardom.
Except that his next show happens to coincide with a Zombie attack.
But Barry won't let that stop him. Nothing - not even death itself - will stand between him and his dream.
In this hyper-gruesome, sick and twisted but enormously fun short read, Stewart King tells the story of what happens when a celebrity wannabe gets the immortality he craves as well as an insatiable taste for human flesh.
A blackly humorous and gore-soaked novella that doesn't pull any punches but rams its message about the fame phenomenon through the ribcage of the reader, this the first of a series of quick-fix, satisfyingly meaty bites of extreme horror fiction from Stewart King that will more than satiate fans of the genre. You have been warned.
Stewart King is a script-writer, editor, and novelist.
X Factor Zombie Massacre has been brilliantly reviewed.
"X Factor Zombie Massacre is a quick and short run through a twisted landscape of death and pop culture. Stewart King pokes some fun at the phenomena surrounding quick fame, while literally tearing it apart limb by limb. Since it is a novella, there aren’t any slow scenes, so we breeze right through the story. I liked X Factor Zombie Massacre and definitely recommend it to you guys." - Zombie Acres.
"Very funny, very slick, very gory, and hugely entertaining" - Matt Lynn, author of the Death Force thrillers.
