THE UNDERCLASS by Dan Weatherer

In a world where the rules of death suddenly no longer apply, thirty-something Lee Callows, prepares for the greatest day of his largely uneventful life: promotion to the first rung of middle management.

However, his (after) life takes an unexpected turn when he is involved in a fatal road traffic accident on his way to work. Yet his death is the least of his problems!

Disowned by an unsympathetic wife, shunned by his apathetic brother, and fired from his job (employment law doesn’t apply to the deceased) Lee, now homeless, alone and struggling to accept his death, seeks solace in the back alleys of Wisterbury.

It is there that he encounters Meryl, and Harry ‘The Head’ Buckley. Meryl, (a student turned stripper, who earlier that morning had been shot dead by an overzealous admirer) too has been made homeless, her housemates less than enthusiastic about sharing their home with a walking corpse. She explains how she came across Harry, who having already died once, had attempted suicide by throwing himself in front of an HGV. The attempt had been unsuccessful, and the sight of Harry’s severed head mouthing silent obscenities in the gutter had been too much for Meryl to ignore.

Together, the three of them attempt to come to terms with their newfound undead status, in a city that has little time for the living, let alone the dead!

The IndieMuse Review

When I found out this was a zombie book, I almost hard-passed. I mean, this trope is tired. But Dan Weatherer actually made my trip with the living dead bearable and enjoyable once again. It was well-written and humorous in all the right spots for an overall well-balanced offering from both the author and Demain Publishing. —Emo-Lee (Curator, 6-Point Review)
