Jim's the sort of guy who'd likely die young then be devoured by his domestic short-hair cats. With nothing going for him, a dead-end IT job and a family who mysteriously disappeared, he is barely holding it together. His hopes of a life worth living fizzled around the time he last saw his toes over his huge belly. Now the imminent demise of the world ushers in a feeling of liberation and relief for Jim. Humanity loses all hope for the future and for once, Jim fits right in Despite all odds, Jim becomes the world's first and last anti-running, anti-prepping survivor. After the first gruesome attacks Jim decides he would rather go down in a blaze of glory than scratch around in the dirt struggling to exist. He battles an army of the worst kind, the army of the undead. He is the FatMan and he has found his mojo. Blood and guts flow freely as Jim races the highways in a mighty truck affectionately named Betty, teaming up with an evil beagle with a serious drinking problem and a tattooed girl called Bob. The unlikely trio look for a way out of the nightmare. But will the zombies let them?
About the Author
Rev Dean Thomas was born in Ryde Sydney and is most likely Australia's fastest fat man. He is a married father of two teenagers. Dean is a very passionate man who has experienced many strange things. For example he passionately hates sand and salt water, but strangely has saved two people from drowning while at the beach. And he lives in a coastal town. His taste in food is simple - the hotter the better! He loves to cook curry and burn the tonsils off anyone who is brave enough to join him. By trade Dean is a cabinetmaker, apple mac technician, ordained Baptist minister and all round super handsome guy who does like to exaggerate somewhat, especially in his writing. Living in Queensland's Sunshine Coast, he enjoys the comfort of sitting indoors where there is no sand or salt water with the air-conditioning set at a chilly 18 degrees, while watching the motogp or world superbikes or anything else that goes vroom vroom. Dean's favourite hobbies include riding old motorcycles as fast as possible to sample the delights of bakeries all over Australia. Wherever he has travelled he has been on the look out for zombie hordes and has become an expert in recognising any suitable zombie fortress... just in case it is ever needed.
