Thereâs no sense trying to hide it, or trying to tap dance around certainly elements of this book, because some people might find those same elements a deal-breaker and I donât want to waste their time reading a review for a novel they wouldnât read anyway, but Zombielicious, Timothy McGivneyâs debut novel, contains not one instance of man-on-man love, but at least three, and depending on how you want to count some … Continue reading
