Second Blurb!

From the brilliant and extremely generous Gary Braunbeck:

"With Dying to Live: Life Sentence, Kim Paffenroth has done something I didn't think possible: surpassed the achievement of Dying to Live. Paffenroth is arguably the only writer of zombie fiction to present the living dead as being victims as much as the living human beings who fear them. He tackles some pretty heady subject matter, grappling with themes of spirituality, accountability, loneliness, alienation (in the dictionary sense of the word), and how a society shows its true face only when it begins to collapse in on itself. This is existential horror fiction pushed to the limit: terrifying, disturbing, with some surprising moments of humor, and a deep, abiding humanity that extends from his living characters back to his zombies. Life Sentence unfolds like a grand tragic opera, and in the end emerges as a poignant and powerful meditation on love, sacrifice, and mortality...one that also just happens to scare the bejeezus out of you."

--5-time Bram Stoker Award Winner Gary A. Braunbeck, author of Mr. Hands and Coffin County
