einstein-image2

Time traveling zombies in New Jersey amounts to a b-movie version remake of the worst ever made SyFy Channel original of Doctor Who visits the Jersey Shore. Yea – it’s THAT bad. The best part is that the author knows it and embraces it in all of its absurdities. There are small glimmers of hope no matter how minute they ...

Normalcy Disclaimer: I do reveal some details of the novelette’s plot. If you would prefer to remain spoiler-free, please skip this review. Is there no monster scarier than the serial killer?
