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.”

I did a pretty lengthy interview about Zombie, Illinois in Chicago Magazine.

Over the weekend, Printer’s Row— the literary magazine of The Chicago Tribune-– ran a nice photo and interview with me about Zombie, Illinois.
It’s a subscription-only site, but you should be able to view a preview for a time by clicking here, and if you like you can sign up and view the full issue here.
Christopher Borrelli did a massive profile of me for the Chicago Tribune. You can view it online here, and I think it comes out in this Sunday’s print edition.
I respectfully disagree with his characterization of my apartment– which, in actuality, is KICKASS– but otherwise I think it’s a fair piece.
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.

On Sunday the 14th at 4pm, I’ll be doing a reading/signing for Zombie, Illinois at City Lit Books in Chicago. Please feel warmly invited!
