Reviews

"If you're looking for something that's different from your everyday zombie gorefest, if you want a zombie novel with actual brains, and a mouth that cannot be silenced, try The Last Weekend. It's killer." --Strange Horizons "In The Last Weekend, it is the shades of Charles Bukowski, Henry Miller, John Fante and other hard-drinking scribblers who haunt the pages. ... Mamatas finds new life in the old apocalyptic cliches, and even this late in the zombie craze, he manages to deliver a highly caustic and entertaining end-of-the-world satire." --San Francisco Chronicle "Nick Mamatas crafts a clever blend of multiple genres that is equal parts heartfelt, fearful, and funny. The Last Weekend is a headshot to a tiresome trope. I loved it!" --Brian Keene, author of The Rising and The Last Zombie "Mamatas's wisecracking philosophical undead opus vivisects genre stereotypes and moral preconceptions with viciousness and style . . . focused intimacy and sustainable dark humor will delight both zombie fans and readers looking for some moral questioning and emotional substance." --Publishers Weekly "Mamatas is adept at creating menacing scenarios that induce cognitive dissonance, i.e., "Do I laugh here, cringe, or both?" An unusual effect; one I admire." --Buy Zombie "If you're looking for something that's different from your everyday zombie gorefest, if you want a zombie novel with actual brains, and a mouth that cannot be silenced, try The Last Weekend.
