Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse is the story of the dead celebrity chef Floyd Rampant, who rises from his grave aiming to create a zombie army of chefs who will rule the world, using the human species as the main ingredient in their cordon bleu meals.It is dark, original, and so funny it should carry a government health warning.It is a gourmet feast, an unmissable read, and a black and poignant joke. Part horror story, part political and social satire, it gives the reader a fast-paced entrée of dread, a main course of panic and a dessert of distress.CCZA, as it's known for short, has a cast of unforgettable characters, most of whom meet with gruesome ends. The action begins in Croydon, moves to London, and reaches its explosive climax in the author's home town of Huddersfield.This smart, witty and profound modern day classic works on many levels.



Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse had me chuckling away to myself within the first couple of pages. Floyd is a larger than life character you can't get out of your mind; once met, never forgotten! Supported by an entertaining bunch of lesser characters, he takes us through this highly amusing zombie tale.


Although comedic in nature, CCZA is not for the faint of heart as there are some gruesome scenes too, as to be expected (and relished!). There is a decent plot and a few surprises too. I'd recommend it to fans of horror and zombie books - you'll love it!
