Death Has Come up into Our Windows by Stant Litore
Death Has Come up into Our Windows
“Imagine sitting at a fire on a winter night and a man is warming his hands and telling you stories from the Bible, except the storyteller is Poe or Lovecraft. And you’ll have some idea what this series is like.”
It is 587 BC. A vast army lies encamped about Yirmiyahu’s city, and a rebellious king has closed the city gates, locking in the living and the dead together. Only one man can see that the dead will overwhelm the city. Only one man can hear the quiet weeping of his God behind her veil in the temple. Only one man will stand against the evils practiced in a dying city.
But the things he sees and the things he must do will call into question every promise he has made, every duty he has sworn—to his wife, his God, and his city.
"Heartbreaking and wonderful." - Conflictium
"The Zombie Bible is philosophy played out in bleak landscapes. It's psychology set to the harsh strains of Prokofiev. Litore's prose is lean and hungry; his characters are faceted all-round like various colored stones; his scenes pulse with blood and life, ring with metal or reek of sweat and undeath." - Marc McDermott, Amazon.com reader review
"Stant Litore has been doing fascinating phantasmagorical things with zombies in biblical times." - Jeff Vandermeer, author of Annihilation
"Litore’s vibrant writing rips the lid off of the King James version and reveals to us a world of intense human hopes, dreams and pathos. You’ve never seen anything like this before." - Richard Ellis Preston, Jr., author of Romulus Buckle and the City of the Founders
