The Most Fascinating Take on the Zombie Genre in a Long Time
“When a mysterious zombie virus threatens the world, it’s up to teenage ‘love zombies’ to stop it. Musgrave supplies enough jugular-ripping, entrails-feasting carnage to satisfy any fan of the genre…Yet there’s also leavening humor, as well as unexpectedly resonant, emotional moments: When Josh drives a car and feels the steering wheel ‘smooth in my hands,’ he says, ‘You don’t know what it means for us undead to be able to do something so human. I felt like I was one step closer, as Pinocchio would say, to being a real boy.’ (T)he love zombies’ satisfying triumph reaches icky levels of bloodletting that fans of the genre will appreciate. A vampire sequel looms on the horizon. Overstuffed–just how some fans like it.”–Kirkus Reviews

˃˃˃ San Diego Book Review
“San Diego resident E.Z. Graves, who teaches college English composition at Grossmont College in East County, has written a horror science fiction novel: The Necromancers: Or Love Zombies of San Diego, using El Cajon and La Jolla as a backdrop. Reading like George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead or the movie Blade with Wesley Snipes, The Necromancers: Or Love Zombies of San Diego, will certainly keep those who are horror or science fiction buffs entertained.” Dennis Moore, East County Magazine, August, 2012.
˃˃˃ Horrornews.net Review
“The attention to scientific detail without reading like a textbook is one of Musgrave’s greatest strengths as a writer, and one that will surely become a trademark that his readers can look forward to finding in his future works.” Todd Crawford, Horrornews.net, August, 2012.

My name is Josh. I don’t know my last name, and I don’t really know how I became a zombie, but I do know I have to tell you this story. We’re “love zombies,” and we have joined forces with some breather teens who fight out of the La Jolla Caves. We’re going on a dangerous mission, and we want you to come with us.
Zombie teens in this book can talk, and they can fight, and they join forces with breather teens who want to make their own mark in this battle to the death with the Zombie Apocalypse. Since we are dead, we can infiltrate the old school zombies and find out the source of the plague. With the help of world renowned geneticist, Dr. Mike Barkin, we’re going to kick these creepers in the ass, and we’re going to grease our swords with their brains. My name is Josh, no last name, and I’m a zombie hunter. I’m also in love with another zombie named Tasha. We’ll take you with us as we crush these hordes where they live–deep inside their hive–and what happens to us will happen to you because you’ll be dead too, one day, and that day might be coming sooner than you think! If the zeros don’t get you, then we will. But, hey, seriously? We’re the good guys. Or, are we? Check out this book to find out the truth–if you can handle the truth, that is. Not many adults can. I suppose we’re their last hope. Nice to have you with us. We’ll watch your back if you watch ours.
