Professor Ted Hollman has perfected his parent’s serum and has created zombies that will attract people from around the world. With tight security measures in place, he believes he has created the greatest and safest zombie park in the world. When the zombies escape from their enclosures, chaos and destruction ensue.

Mark: It’s a rhetorical question. Let everyone read for themselves.

Jay: Yes. Right. Good plan. What makes this book different from other works in the genre?

Mark: Due to the positive response from fans about my zombiefied animals from Zombie Park, I created another park filled with horrific zombiefied animals.  There are also superhuman zombies that put the ones from Resident Evil to shame.
