Naked Face Eating Zombies From Romford - Holly Powis
A six chapter novella packed with gut-busting comedy.
Derek is a miserable git, bursting with impotent rage toward his co-workers; there’s morbidly obese Marjorie and her inane chit chat, the self important Administrator, Deborah, who calls time wasting meetings about the importance of not wasting time and Gavin, the slim-line-suit-wearing, blue-eyed, berk of a team-leader.
Then the Romford based office is attacked by a horde of naked, face-eating zombies.
What happens next is a rip-roaring, gut-busting, overwhelmingly satisfying, killing fest. Derek relishes the opportunity to vent his fury using whatever weaponry comes to hand, heroically fighting off the attacking horde in this black comedy that will make you guffaw, get a little bit of sick in your mouth and feel slightly ashamed.
