Welcome to Gil's All Night Diner, where zombie attacks are a regular occurrence and you never know what might be lurking in the freezer....

Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley. But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

Seems someone's out to drive Loretta from the Diner, and more than willing to raise a little Hell on Earth if that's what it takes. Before Duke and Earl get to the bottom of the Diner's troubles, they'll run into such otherworldly complications as undead cattle, an amorous ghost, a jailbait sorceress, and the terrifying occult power of pig-latin. And maybe - just maybe - the End of the World, too.

Gory, sexy, and flat-out hilarious, Gil's All Fright Diner will tickle your funnybone - before ripping it out of its socket!

Read It, Track It is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.

I’ve wanted to read Gil’s All Fright Diner for a while now. My husband has it on his bookshelf but after I saw it was available on audio and that Fred Berman was the narrator I had to request it from the library.

Gil’s All Fright Diner features an unlikely couple of friends, Earl (vampire) and Duke (werewolf). These two rednecks drive into town and find themselves in the middle of zombies, ghouls and some freaky black magic going on.

Next time I’m in the mood for quirky I’ll be picking up another A. Lee Martinez book!

        Read It, Track It is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.   Fans of The Walking Dead TV show will enjoy these books. You get a closer look at the Governor that we all love to hate. Book 1, The Rise of the Governor is more focused on a small group of family and friends where one of them becomes the Governor at the end. The Road to Woodbury is a little different. The first half focuses on another group and what they go through before they are welcomed into the small town of Woodbury. The second half is about the group living in Woodbury and the now infamous Governor. […]
