Zombies come to Russia! Or shamelessly blowing my own trumpet

Call Me Human: A Zombie Apocalypse Novelis a new Kindle addition from a wonderful Russian author Sergei Marysh in my (hopefully, not so bad, either :)) translation into English. Call Me Human: A Zombie Apocalypse Novelis a strangely believable book written for a more emphatic audience who look for an emotional experience rather than a straightforward scare. The story of a brave but unfortunate Igor Bernik who grows more human as he turns into a zombie is weirdly realistic, and the author's explanation of zombies' nature is very novel, if you'll excuse the pun.

I read it, translated it, and I loved it (otherwise I wouldn't have translated it). Hope you'll enjoy it, too. Congrats to Sergei on his Kindle debut!
