Dead Beat and the Ease of Injustice: A Book Review

2 July 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Author: Remy Porter.

Dead Beat is Remy Porter's first novel and much of the novel takes place in the English countryside. This book was released in the summer of 2010 through Wild Wolf Publishing and this is definitely a zombie novel. Half of a small town turns into these brain eaters, with three protagonists doing their best to maintain order. However, justice is one of many elements that falls to the wayside when chaos takes hold and central character Johnny's diminishing friends is the result.

Johnny Silverman is the central hero in this 242 page thriller. Johnny is a police officer and when the zombie apocalypse comes knocking, he is the first and only line of defence. This remains true until Jack, the central villain, creates a new community of zombie survivors. However, Jack is more violent and more dictatorial than Johnny. This splits the community of a small town between those »

Walker’s Wheelhouse: Recommended Reading

17 February 2011 9:30 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

You know how I always sometimes write about things that are more self-indulgent than not? Like my Brendan Fraser updates? We’ve decided to cleverly group these items into a segment called Walker’s Wheelhouse. It’s self-serving, assumes that you care about what’s in my wheelhouse and that you know what a wheelhouse is. But it also herds these ideas together into one palatable whole, so you can chose to get in my wheelhouse or stay out of my wheelhouse. Whatever floats your wheelhouse. My brother asked me the other day what I thought my Wheelhouse would look like in actual physical form. And before I could answer he said, “It would probably just have a lot of dream catchers in it.” I don’t know exactly what that means, but I 100% agree. Reading. We all do it. We’re doing it right now. There’s no shame in it. »
