Captive for a year in a research laboratory on zombies in Portland, Andy Warner manages to escape by disguising himself as Santa Claus. But other zombies join him and ask him to be their leader. The situation gets worse when a little girl starts to follow him too, convinced to have found the real Santa Claus.


S.G. Browne is the American author of the novels LESS THAN HERO, BIG EGOS, LUCKY BASTARD, FATED and BREATHERS.


He sees you when you’re sleeping ... he knows when you’re undead.

How does the leader of a failed zombie civil rights movement from California rescue a group of his undead brethren and help a lonely Breather girl as he hides from a band of medical researchers while disguised as Santa Claus?

If you’ve never believed in Christmas miracles, then you wouldn’t understand.

Andy Warner has just escaped from a zombie research facility in Portland, Oregon, where he's been subjected to experimental testing for the past year. With Christmas just days away, Andy figures that donning a jolly old St. Nick costume to throw off his would-be captors is just the ticket. But he never expects to encounter a sweet, lonesome nine-year-old girl who not only reminds Andy of the family he's lost but who thinks he's the real Santa. He also doesn't count on being recognized as last year's national quasi-celebrity by a clandestine group of decaying supporters who look to him for leadership. For the living and the undead, this unforgettable holiday tale will truly put on display just who is gnawing and who is nice...
