It's been three years since the events related in Seven Stones, three years of death and destruction greater than humanity has ever witnessed. Europe is in the grip of war and chaos as man’s greatest technological achievements are turned to the art of killing.
A continent away, a draft dodger tries to lose himself in the wilderness of Northern Ontario. Far from civilization, he hopes to find peace from the visions he has seen, the insights that the Book of Ashavan is always willing to offer. But inexplicable violence even here at the edge of civilization soon teaches Doug Slattery that half a world away is not far enough, that the world is too small to escape what plagues mankind. Neither distance nor love can provide comfort from the madness of war, and Doug realizes he must confront what he has sought to avoid for so long.

"Jer-Z is a wacky and hilarious slice of zombie goodness. Wicked and deranged, it's TIME BANDITS meets SHAUN OF THE DEAD." Jonathan Maberry, best-selling author of PATIENT ZERO and ROT & RUIN
When it comes to fighting zombies, sometimes imagination is more important than knowledge.
Zombies from the future invade the Jersey Pine Barrens through a time portal in a dumpster behind a cheeseburger joint. It's up to eccentric, 85-year-old reptile expert Bob Rampold and his environmental trainee, Arvin Hickey, a former marine sniper and personal injury lawyer with post-traumatic stress disorder, to save the ecologically diverse Pinelands National Reserve and the world.
Ironically, they're aided by a zombie in their fight against the zombies. Einstein's zombie has come through the time portal looking for his brain. In 1955, the man who performed Einstein's autopsy kept the brilliant scientist's brain in a Tupperware container for years afterward.
Bob and Arvin improvise as they make their way from one rank, putrid zombie fight to another. Zombies come to life in hospitals, wineries, and the Pine Barrens. Our heroes are aided by Arlene, a sexy news reporter who quits her dead-end news job and ends up with the story of a lifetime as she follows a twisted, rifle-toting Girl Scout, a pot-smoking veterinarian, a 400-pound lawyer named Hilarius Fuchs, a lesbian couple descended from Jersey anarchists, and a schizophrenic named Ronald with OCD who dresses in pink angora sweaters, pink skirts, and high heels and only speaks in Ed Wood movie lines.
The author tells a charming and silly story while also taking a stick and poking an advertising soaked, environmentally unconscious, ear-bud wearing, technology and latte-addicted world. Jer-Z is a book that asks the reader, who's the real zombie here?
