I am Scrooge : A Zombie Story for Christmas Paperback
by Adam Roberts
Award nominated SF author Adam Roberts takes on Dickens in this festive zombie gorefest.
Marley was dead. To begin with. The legendary Ebenezeer Scrooge sits in his house counting money.
The boards that he has nailed up over the doors and the windows shudder and shake under the blows from the endless zombie hordes that crowd the streets hungering for his flesh and his miserly braaaaiiiiiinns!
Just how did the happiest day of the year slip into a welter of blood, innards and shambling, ravenous undead on the snowy streets of old London town?
Will the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future be able to stop the world from drowning under a top-hatted and crinolined zombie horde?
It's the Dickensian Zombie Apocalypse - God Bless us, one and all!

Review by Zodac13
To be honest, there were a few points while I was reading this when I wanted to throw the book accross the room out of disgust. That said, except for a few sections, the story gets better as you go, and so long as you read with the appropriate silly attitude it can be an okay if not a good read. the confused narator bit i think has been done better elsewhere already, however, there were a lot of funny jokes. the christmas spirits...at times i loved them, at times i loathed them. over all, its worth reading, for those that love a good tale of zombies and christmas.
