The Burning Z

  • Share

Do you know what the Burning Man is? Well it is a festival held in the Black Rock desert every year. It lasts a year and… well.. celebrates freedom. I’ve never been to one but have read about it.

To quote the people who “organize” the event: “Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.”

Now that we have introduced you to the Burning Man festival… let us introduce you to The Burning Z!



The Burning Z

The Burning Z is a zombie novel that came out this April and is written by Clive Riddle. This is Clive’s second novel and this is what he has to say about his zombie book:

“Zombies invade the Black Rock desert and the Burning Man festival, while a flawed hero tries to rescue his rekindled love.

The Burning Z takes us back to the source of a zombie outbreak – a pre-zombie apocalypse world – but one in which a passing zombie might not merit a second glance: the annual Burning Man festival in the Black Rock desert.

A mysterious meteor slams into the Black Rock desert and soon a growing number of zombies are on the loose. Bruce and Conner – hometown friends who experience sudden success early in their careers, followed by a long downward trajectory – encounter the z’s and embark on a quest across the desert to save Conner’s recently rekindled high school love who is attending Burning Man. Alan Gorman – the steadfast, retired Air Force physician with expert marksmanship and a prosthetic lower limb – endures his own odyssey trying to alert the authorities to the escalating zombie menace. It all leads to a climatic, costumed battle of the Alamo, inside Burning Man’s Black Rock City.”

The book is available both as a Paperback version and a Kindle Version. Go check the book out!
