Perishables by Michael G. Williams
Winner of the 2012 Laine Cunningham Novel Award!
Everybody hates their Homeowner’s Association, and nobody likes a zombie apocalypse. Put the two together, and Withrow Surrett is having a truly craptastic night. Not to mention the fact that he’s got one big secret to keep from the idiots in his home – Withrow is a vampire. Perishables has been called by some “a gripping examination into suburban ennui set in a milieu of post-modern apocalyptic horror.” Not really. Those people would be navel-gazing idiots. Perishables is a bust-your-gut funny collection of three stories about trust, human and undead relationships, what community really means, and zombies. A LOT of freakin’ zombies.
Fans of The Black Knight Chronicles, The Tome of Bill, and Fred, the Vampire Accountant will love this series.
