“As startlingly humorous as these poems are, there is an unsettling sense of brooding dread at the core of each piece, so the reading experience is akin to whistling past a graveyard. You don’t have to be a zombie fan or a poetry fan to enjoy this irresistibly entertaining and accessible collection.” – Judy, Creature Feature Tomb of Horror
“G. O. Clark’s Scenes Along the Zombie Highway is stylish, chilling, clever and sly. Beware: it will eat your brain and have your sense of the absurd for dessert.” – Mary A. Turzillo, Nebula Award winner, Rhysling Award finalist, author of Lovers and Killers
“Grisly and smartly funny! G. O. Clark renders the juiciest bits of modern zombie lore into ironic, poignant, and often wry reflections of modern society filtered through a warped sense of humor we all hope the walking dead will have when the zombie apocalypse finally arrives.” – James Chambers, author of Corpse Fauna and The Engines of Sacrifice
“Scenes Along the Zombie Highway is an absorbing collection of emotionally poignant poetry. G. O. Clark brings a fresh take to the zombie genre, so if you love zombies, then you will love this book.” – Jeani Rector, Editor of The Horror Zine
“I’m going to guess that G. O. Clark had a good time with the poems in Scenes Along the Zombie Highway. Oh, there is some serious work here, but Mr. Clark is playing at the top of his game…when he’s tongue in cheek. A great wry, witty look at the whole zombie craze. Highly recommended.” – Gene O’Neill, Stoker winning author of Dance of the Blue Lady and Other Stories.

In Scenes Along the Zombie Highway, you’ll encounter the living dead in all their ragged, rotten glory, and upon finishing the book, leave with a twisted smile upon your face.
