The Most Fascinating Take on the Zombie Genre in a Long Time
“When a mysterious zombie virus threatens the world, it’s up to teenage ‘love zombies’ to stop it. Musgrave supplies enough jugular-ripping, entrails-feasting carnage to satisfy any fan of the genre…Yet there’s also leavening humor, as well as unexpectedly resonant, emotional moments: When Josh drives a car and feels the steering wheel ‘smooth in my hands,’ he says, ‘You don’t know what it means for us undead to be able to do something so human. I felt like I was one step closer, as Pinocchio would say, to being a real boy.’ (T)he love zombies’ satisfying triumph reaches icky levels of bloodletting that fans of the genre will appreciate. A vampire sequel looms on the horizon. Overstuffed–just how some fans like it.”–Kirkus Reviews

˃˃˃ San Diego Book Review
“San Diego resident E.Z. Graves, who teaches college English composition at Grossmont College in East County, has written a horror science fiction novel: The Necromancers: Or Love Zombies of San Diego, using El Cajon and La Jolla as a backdrop. Reading like George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead or the movie Blade with Wesley Snipes, The Necromancers: Or Love Zombies of San Diego, will certainly keep those who are horror or science fiction buffs entertained.” Dennis Moore, East County Magazine, August, 2012.

“The attention to scientific detail without reading like a textbook is one of Musgrave’s greatest strengths as a writer, and one that will surely become a trademark that his readers can look forward to finding in his future works.” Todd Crawford, Horrornews.net, August, 2012.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Teens are difficult to please, but I hope I have added enough to catch their attention. I had a pro tutor me through the process.
