Even when you're dead, looking good counts! Urban chic, sarcastic wit and cannibalism mesh in Henry's riotous new take on the underworld. The addition of literary footnotes annotating more of protagonist Amanda's first-person bitchy views of life, death, fashion and the taste of humans is hilariously twisted. But be warned: This tale isn't for everyone. Not all readers will be entertained by discussions on the different tastes of various ethnicities. This is a truly unique and wildly warped tale!

It's only been months since ad executive Amanda Feral was unexpectedly turned into a zombie. Luckily for her, she quickly found friends (fellow zombies, vampires, etc.) and discovered the hip undead scene in Seattle. But a text-message cry for help from one of Amanda's succubus friends sets her off on a rescue mission that may be more dangerous than she ever dreamed. And since zombies don't regenerate, injuries are best avoided, especially if you want keep wearing the latest fashions. (KENSINGTON, Mar., 320 pp., $15.00)
