My screenwriter buddy Josh has a new book out. It’s called Mercy, and it’s a little unusual: It’s an epistolary novel about the zombie apocalypse. Specifically, it’s about one woman’s attempt to return home to her husband and daughter after her plane goes down, stranding her miles and miles from home.

Now, personally, I don’t like zombies. Can’t stand the gross. Can’t stand the chewing. But I’ve started reading this book and it’s really drawing me in. Gah! And yeah, he’s released it as an indie novel.

Here’s a few sample pages for them who like samples. Or you can read the samples provided with the Kindle file (not to mention buy the book). You can also buy it from B&N for the Nook.

Zombie fans, give it a look.
