Raising Stony Mayhall
by Daryl Gregory
Del Rey, $15.00, 403 pp
Release Date: June 28, 2011
This is by the author of Pandemonium.

In 1968, after the first zombie outbreak, Wanda Mayhall and her three daughters discover a dead teenage mother in a snowstorm. She has a baby who seems dead but when his eyes open They hide him and raise him in secret lest the authorities destroy him. When he is discovered, Stony must run and he finds he is not the only living dead boy. Is his fate to be the Zombie Messiah?

This is a unique zombie novel, funny, frightening and moving as a story of self-discovery and family love. Well-written, this has converted this reviewer from the zombie novel whose zombies have no humanity. This deserves your reading even if sworn to avoid zombie novels. ~~ Pam Allan
