About the Book

Maybe this book is about zombies. Maybe it's not. Either way, it's an adventure and there's some odd stuff going on.

Maggie Lawson is calling Onyx for tactical support. Maggie works for Onyx, an underground consultancy that uses subversion to change global tech policies. Onyx has access to lots of cash and is made up of do gooders who happen to use guerrilla techniques for just about everything they do. On a business trip, Maggie develops an abscess, which leads to an incredible adventure.Maggie is going to need to disappear a bit. They are really, really going to want to lock her up after the hospital gore. Onyx is going to help Maggie skirt the government and help with the cleanup.

Inspired by all the things we don't talk about in polite society Maybe Zombies explores human interaction and the human body with an honest, slightly sickening gusto as we follow Maggie around the world.
