- We can order this
Award nominated SF author Adam Roberts takes on Dickens in this festive zombie gorefest.
Marley was dead. To begin with.
The legendary Ebenezeer Scrooge sits in his house counting money. The boards that he has nailed up over the doors and the windows shudder and shake under the blows from the endless zombie hordes that crowd the streets hungering for his flesh and his miserly braaaaiiiiiinns!
Just how did the happiest day of the year slip into a welter of blood, innards and shambling, ravenous undead on the snowy streets of old London town?
Will the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future be able to stop the world from drowning under a top-hatted and crinolined zombie horde?
It's the Dickensian Zombie Apocalypse - God Bless us, one and all!

"Guns blazing silliness to a high degree." --"SF REVU"
"Imagine a historical "Shaun of the Dead" written with as many bad zombie puns as you can think of . . . Like "Monty Python" at its best though, " I Am Scrooge" doesn't talk down to its audience. Ranks alongside "Blackadder's Christmas Carol" as a great comic take on Dickens." "Total Sci Fi""
"Adam Roberts reworks"A Christmas Carol" into a zombie-slashing gore-fest. Lots of corny jokes and groanworthy one-liners, lots and lots of brain slurping zombies. Clever and daft in equal measure." "Daily Mail""
"Guns blazing silliness to a high degree." "SF REVU""
