ZOMBIE, ILLINOIS in the Examiner

Zombie, Illinois got a great review in the Examiner on Halloween.

“Like all truly great zombie literature (and yes, such a thing absolutely exists) Zombie, Illinois is not merely a story about zombies. Instead, it is a story about Chicago, in all its corrupt, poverty-stricken glory. It is a story about the people who live there, the politicians and police who rule over them, and the neighborhoods themselves. A clearer picture of the Windy City may never be painted, as Kenemore does a fine job of using the zombie apocalypse to bring out the best and worst in a city made infamous for generations.”

And stuff.

ZOMBIE, ILLINOIS in The Chicago Reader

Jerome Ludwig– Managing Editor of The Chicago Reader-– wrote a great review of Zombie, Illinois.  (He also excerpted my entire cover letter to him, so you get to see what a polite correspondent I am.)  Seriously though, he says things like “I couldn’t put it down” and “Kenemore is a gifted writer.”  It’s a great review, and comes from a journalist whom I respect a lot.
