Looking for some fresh reading material for your Kindle or iPad bookshelf? How about thumbing through Dan Thomas’ zombie horror novella Dark Highway about a hapless young salesman who is zombified by listening to sales motivation tapes?
Originally published a while back as a trade paperback by Black Death Books, Dark Highway is now being reissued as an eBook with some spiffy new cover art.
Dead End! Fueled by high hopes and the words of motivational speaker Skip Forney, traveling salesman Tom Turley takes a road trip into Wyoming to close a deal that will salvage his self-respect and save his cheesy, low-dog job – and winds up taking a wrong turn into hell! After a bloody encounter with serial killer swingers, Tom wakes up from a dirt nap with a continually decomposing body, the entrepreneurial spirit, a craving for human flesh – and a taste for revenge. But what’s a zombie to do with all eternity on his side? Re-inventing himself as a merger maniac with fangs, Tom becomes the King of Wall Street and proves that even death can’t stop a man from staking his claim (through the hearts of his clients) or greasing the wheels of the corporate machine (with blood).
Dark Highway is a lurid, humorous tale of zombie perseverance, hostile takeovers and world conquest and invites you to take a horrifying, B-movie ride into the underbelly of one man’s demonized soul.
