Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter is Probably Not a True Story, But It Definitely Could Be
Zombie and horror author C.A. Verstraete is offering her own take on these chilling events.
By Chris Morse
What if Lizzie Borden's horrific axe murders had another explanation? That's the question being posed by author C.A. Verstraete in her Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter book series. This semi-historical work of fiction is a fresh, fun take on one of the lesser talked about figures of homicidal fame, at least when it comes to popular culture and media. In recent years, horror twists to historical events have been somewhat well-received, with the likes of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter making us all appreciate the absurd.
However, Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter is a little bit different than those kinds of stories. The true story, or at least the story being accepted as true until Verstraete shed some light on what really happened, is one of horror in itself, so the addition of zombies feels right at home to an otherwise bloody and horrific tale. Lizzie Borden could very well have been a hero in her own right.
The latest book in the series, Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter 2: The Axe Will Fall, continues this journey and is sure to be an entertaining read. Here is the full press release.[blockquote-0]
Both of these books are available in print and on Kindle. You can find more information on these titles on the Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter and Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter 2: The Axe Will Fall pages of the author's official website. Listen, zombie hunting is important work. Maybe let's reserve judgment on Lizzie Borden until we have the full story. Check these books out!
