Fried Green Zombies by John A. Allen

Fried Green Zombies
by John A. Allen

Published: 2009
Genre: Action, Comedy, Scifi, Zombies
Paperback: 262 pages
Rating: 5

Description from the amazon:
Bovina is a sleepy little town, until two friends find themselves battling truck-driving zombies, aliens, and dirty cops after finding a beauiful, busty burqa-bedecked stranger standing on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. Aided by a classic computer nerd and a crazy man wielding a frying pan, follow Chett and Harry as they battle their way across the rural countryside and ultimately save the world. Or do they?

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): hardheaded hot dogs

I found this a fun read with some shoot-em-up scenes and otherworldly and unmentionable characters. Of course, what really got me was the humor.

Kindle version is currently available for $2.39 here.
