It's no surprise that I am an absolute Let The Right One In fanatic. The film, the soundtrack, and the novel are all examples of pure perfection in the horror world. After falling head over heels for the chilling world of Eli and Oskar through film, I rush ordered the novel the second I had money for it. I took the massive book and cranked it out in just under a week. I barely took breaks to blog while reading it, I just couldn't put it down. Now, vampires are NOT my favorite creatures of horror as zombies reign supreme in my book. Yet, LTROI is easily my favorite horror novel in the last decade. So when it was announced that John Ajvide Lindqvist was writing a zombie novel, words cannot capture the sensation that took over my body. I'm a self-proclaimed zombie obsessed, literature freak. The announcement of this book was like Christmas coming early.
On September 28th, Lindqvist's story Handling the Undead will be released. As expected, the story isn't to be traditional and sounds just as horrifically beautiful as his last masterpiece. The novel is to be apart-dramatic, part-satiric study of what happens when the undead return to their families. Special thanks to Stu from BuyZombie for bringing this to my attention.
