A frightening, darkly comedic look at people surviving a zombie onslaught, from award-winning comics sensation and novelist Bob Fingerman.
A global plague has nearly vanquished mankind; the citizenry of New York City is no exception. Eight million zombies. Shoulder to shoulder. Walking the streets, looking for their next meal of human flesh. The residents of an Upper East Side walkup have joined forces to keep themselves safe, the pageant of walking rot outside their windows a constant reminder of the their foreseeable fate. Trapped in the safety of their building, the tenants find themselves at each others’ throats. When they spy a lone teenage girl who walks unharmed among the undead, impervious, their world opens up.

“Fingerman is a brilliant satirist, artist and mind.” — Trey Parker, co-creator of South Park
“It doesn’t seem fair that Bob Fingerman gets to be such a funny, savvy, cool and smart writer who can also draw. It gives him an advantage and I may need to have him assassinated.” — Augusten Burroughs, New York Times bestselling author of Running with Scissors

“The thinking man’s zombie novel.” — Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy
“If you’re thinking: ‘Not another zombie novel,’ this is definitely the book for you. Bob Fingerman’s Pariah is a testament to the versatility of zombie fiction. It is, quite simply, a work that will remind you why you fell in love with the genre in the first place.” — Robert Kirkman, author of The Walking Dead
“If you think there are no original twists left in the zombie genre, think again. With Pariah, Bob Fingerman crafts an exciting, fresh take on it, breathing much-needed new life into the undead. Pariah is a clever, compelling read.” ¾ Brian Keene, The Rising
“As grim as it gets. Zombie fans looking for unrelenting grue and apocalyptic mayhem need look no further. But there’s a heart to this story, too, in the immaculately crafted characters—the survivors, the last of the human race, pushing themselves well past where the struggle for survival ends and there’s nothing left but to hold on and hope. A masterpiece of the zombie genre, for its realism and its courage to embrace the darkness.” — David Wellington, author of Monster Island and Vampire Zero
