I met John Gorumba at the WHC-2011 in Austin Tx. His first novel, World in Red was being promoted by Creeping Hemlock Press’s Print is Dead publishing co. His zombie novel had an interesting approach…there are no rules ! Forget the traditional methods for killing zombies! Set in Louisiana, the premise of the story revolves around a father attempting to fly home to his wife and newborn son during the middle of a world wide crisis. However, I don’t want to spoil the story for you. I will say it was definitely a departure from the usual type of zombie novels where the antagonists are predictable. It moves at a good pace, pulling the reader in to the conflict and the desperation of a father trying to unite with his family before it’s too late. World in Red has a fresh, sharp, angle to it , and a cleaver twist to the plot toward the end. The characters personalities develop well as they have to face evils greater than just the zombies. If your a fan of the genre, make sure to put this on your reading list!
