"No one knows horror like Jovanka Vuckovic and no one is better suited to lay out a gory smorgasboard of zombie history. This is going to be bloody delicious!" Jonathan Maberry - NY Times Bestseller and multiple Bram Stoker Award winning author of PATIENT ZERO and ZOMBIE CSU"Horror to Jovanka Vuckovic is as much about preservation as it is enjoyment. She is the modern equivalent of Forry Ackerman, but her breath is much better."Steve Niles - comic book author, novelist, Creator of "30 Days of Night"
