It’s here! My latest comedic fantasy, Zeus Is Undead: This One Has Zombies is published and available today! It’s taken me far longer than I would have liked to get this book out there, but I’m pleased it’s finally ready for you. It’s definitely something I can be proud of.
But just in case any of you are new here, perhaps I ought to answer the question of just what, exactly, is Zeus Is Undead?
I’m glad you asked, hypothetical person!
Zeus Is Undead: This One Has Zombies is the long awaited sequel to Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure, which is my best-reviewed and, until today, personal favorite novel. It’s a return to the same warped, wild, fourth wall-breaking world where the Greek gods re-emerged in the present day to bask in mortal adoration and make general asses of themselves. The story picks up a year and a half after the events of Zeus Is Dead and centers around Athena and her quest to reclaim her lost divinity. Along the way, she’ll deal with vindictive fellow Olympians, smart-alecky mortals, long-dead rivals, dangerously-thrown packages of rosemary crisps, and a tiny little worldwide zombie apocalypse.
Old favorites from Zeus Is Dead are back, like Thalia, Apollo, Leif, Tracy, and many others (it is a sequel, after all)! You’ll also get to know Melpomene (Muse of tragedy, horror, and children’s books), Iris (goddess of messengers, rainbows, and glitter), and Ryan Seth Sloude (an ex-Ninja Templar with a sword far sharper than his wit). There are others, of course, but saying more would spoil all the surprises!
Early reviews are so far quite positive:
“Zeus Is Undead is a perfect example of Munz’s skill as an author, his creation of a fun, engaging story filled with groaner jokes and characters who know they are in a story.” –2 Book Lovers Reviews
“If you want to exercise all the laughs in your repertoire from titters to BWAH-HA-HAs, pick up Zeus Is Undead.” –Jody Lynn Nye, author of View from the Imperium and co-author of Myth Adventures of Aahz and Skeeve
“Expect the unexpected, and be prepared for a fast-paced adventure that takes nothing seriously!” –Don Meyer, Amazon reviewer
“An incredibly fun time, with fourth wall breaking Muses. A worthy sequel to Zeus is Dead.” –D. Cary Begole, Amazon reviewer
