Liars, Fakers, and the Dead Who Eat Them by Scott Edelman – $8.95 (two novelettes; 154 pages; illustrations and cover artwork by Daniele Serra; introduction by Brian Keene) – ALLEVON #2
Written Backwards’ Allevon series of illustrated trade paperback originals continues with Scott Edelman’s Liars, Fakers, and the Dead Who Eat Them, a collection of two zombie novelettes, illustrated by Daniele Serra. A Vegan chef believes meat is murder. A determined waitress longs for stardom. He hopes to convince the world to abandon killing animals. She hopes to convince a director to make her a star. Both of those hopes are challenged when a zombie apocalypse traps them in small towns where their dreams might come true—or else be crushed under the weight of an invading undead horde. Join Tim and Shelley as they struggle to survive—and retain their sanity—in a world where death suddenly holds no dominion.
At the Lazy K by Gene O’Neill – $8.95 (novella; 162 pages; illustrations by L.A. Spooner, introduction by Rena Mason) – ALLEVON #1
Once a brothel, and later turned into a rehabilitation center, a place called The Lazy K survives a century-spanning curse following the wrongful hanging of an innocent man on the branches of an old California oak. This haunting novella by legend Gene O’Neill is part western, part ghost story, part drug-rehabilitation, and is a literary, multi-genre exploration into the rich cultural history of northern California. Illustrations by L.A. Spooner, with an introduction by Rena Mason.
