Zombies and Vegans: It’s a Revolution People.

vegan zombies novel cover

It might not be on everyone’s Amazon wishlist, but it should be. Finally, just when we were all beginning to wonder, where’s the book incorporating veganism and zombies… it’s here, it’s arrived folks!

David Agranoff, author of The Vegan Guide to Portland, and Screams from a Dying World (I’m assuming this isn’t a Portland guidebook too), has written what is surely going to be in every vegan’s Christmas stocking this year.

Whilst he purportedly didn’t intend the novel to be preachy, it seems that the plot may ooze a little with ulterior motive…

“From fast food burgers to free-range organic eggs, eating animal products turns people into shambling brain-dead zombies – not even vegetarians are safe! In Portland, Oregon, vegans, freegans, abolitionists, hardliners and raw fooders have holed up in Food Fight, one of the country’s premier vegan grocery stores at the vegan mini-mall. There they must prepare for their final battle to take back the city from the hordes of roaming undead. Will vegans filet the flesh-eaters or will they become zombie chow? When there’s no more meat in hell, the vegans will walk the earth.”

Apparently Carlton Mellick (the third), who is Agranoff’s editor at Eraserhead publishing house, rang the novelist and said there needed to be a vegan zombie novel and that Agranoff must write it. Not one to turn down a challenge, seemingly, Agranoff obliged. The author has previously written material whilst in prison for refusing to testify in a ludicrous legal battle with the government in San Diego (he had the temerity to attend a lecture on environmentalism, and spent 80days in prison for it!).

Agranoff has a personal blog and runs a non-profit one-on-one vegan-mentoring organisation called Try Vegan PDX. The author has been vegan for 18 years and is passionate about helping others achieve the same. In an interview with Planet Green he says that you don’t need to be vegan to enjoy the novel; it probably helps though right David?
