Xombies Testimonials

Xombies is a triumph, both epic in scope and entirely unpredictable, and anchored by one of the most refreshing and unique voices in modern horror fiction.”
--Nate Kenyon (author of Bloodstone), Horror World Reviews

28 Days Later meets Lord of the Flies and Das Boot. A heady brew of horror, science-fiction, suspense, and adventure…as sharp and bone-chilling as an arctic gale.”
--A.J. Matthews (aka Rick Hautala), author of Looking Glass and The White Room

“Walter Greatshell wrote an amazing novel called Xombies. It’s really, really good. I picked it up and couldn’t put it down. Beyond the freshness of take on the subject matter and the compelling narrative, I was taken completely by the sheer quality of the writing. Often genre fiction is driven more by ideas and momentum than by good writing, but not in the case of Xombies. That was top-notch in every regard. A MODERN CLASSIC.”
--Bob Fingerman, author of Bottomfeeder.

“I loved your book and have to tell you it was one of the big inspirations for Monster Island. You conjured up so many great images in that novel, but I think the thing I liked most about it was the characterizations--the dynamics of power and love between the various characters are really masterful. I learned a lot from your book, a lot that I am now trying to implement in my own writing. Please do know that I’m a great admirer of your work.”
--David Wellington, author of Monster Island.

Xombies is by far the best horror novel I’ve read. I can’t wait for Xombie Rama! Hell, I’d check out anything that you’d written at this point.”
--Jason Thompson, author of Manga: The Complete Guide

“The writing is fast-paced and keeps you hooked. The book itself is a cross between Night of the Living Dead and an end-of-the-world type premise like Earth Abides, one of my all-time favorites. I see the makings for a pretty decent horror movie--maybe Hollywood will listen?”
--Tracy Farnsworth, Round Table Reviews

“The story is told entirely from Lulu’s point of view, which heightens both the tension and the immediacy of events. The rest of the cast of characters is developed quite well…it’s a tribute to the author that he was able to imbue each of them with distinct personalities and quirks. The pace is frantic almost from the first page. The ending is unexpected, yet seems right. I’m looking forward to more from this author.”
--Deborah Hern, Romance Reader’s Connection (4-star review)

“I really loved Xombies and want to know what’s up next.”
--Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Ghost Road Blues

“This book has it all: action, excitement, a subtle love story, a bit of comedy, a really cool part where the story is told from the point of view of a Xombie. The book is even left open for a sequel. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.”
--The Keyhole reviews.
