A Star Wars Zombie Novel

More awesome than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? I don't know yet, but the novel Death Troopers by Joe Schreiber looks promising. Here's a synopsis:

When the Imperial prison barge Purge–temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves–breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

And death is only the beginning.

The Purge’s half-dozen survivors–two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board–will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn’t really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.


Schreiber has a blog, where you can find pictures of his zombified Storm Troopers staggering around ComicCon, promoting his book.

Holy Crap! That sounds freaking awesome! If they made it into a video game, it would be like Star Wars meets Dead Space! How cool would that be?!

Uh oh. If zombie stormtroopers don't have to rely on their terrible aim, they might actually be dangerous.

I am intrigued. But I've always been a sucker for creepy, haunted ships.

Bought it yesterday. Read about half way before going to bed. Very creepy, very well done description and back story/emotions that the characters are going through. Aliens are abound, and the story is only half way done!

Porn? Really? Nerd out elsewhere, thanks.
