Aftereffects: Zombie Therapy (Zane Bradey)
Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Psychological Thriller Aftereffects: Zombie Therapy by Zane Bradey.

Aftereffects: Zombie Therapy (not only for Zombie fans!) is a different kind of zombie novel. The action takes place after the zombie apocalypse has already happened. The government has created a cure for those infected, and the fascinating aspect about the cure is that the people cured remember their zombie episodes.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon, Smashwords, B&N, and CreateSpace and is available as eBook and Paperback (~230 pages / Released in February 2012).

About the Book

One day you are an average citizen, carrying on with everyday mundane tasks, the next, you are a fiendish zombie looking to tear off, and eat the flesh of every family member, friend, neighbor, and stranger you come in contact with.

That's where your story ends, right?

You're destined to live out your remaining days as a blood-thirsty zombie until deprivation or some un-infected vigilante lays you to rest?


The government creates a cure for your cannibalistic condition. Unfortunately, you remember every gory detail of your killing sprees. Can you cope with the fact that you ingested your fellow human beings? Good news: psychiatrist Dr. Victor Frenzel has devoted himself to treating the psychological aspects of living life after being a flesh-eating zombie. He's accepting new clients and wants to help you get on with your life. Unless, he suspects that you are one of the infected cannibalistic fiends who ate his lovely young wife, Barbara. In that case you might be a particularly prime candidate for one of his more cutting-edge treatments. Either way you will be cured...

Read this horrifically gruesome tale of zombie rehabilitation.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "As you can probably tell by the title of my review, zombie tales are not what I would normally pick up and read. But in reading the other reviews and the book description I decided to give this book a try. And I was not disapointed one bit. This is not your typical book about zombies at all, well at least not in the traditional sense. I loved the unique twist the author gave it. It was very well written and I could lose myself to the story. As a matter of fact it was so well written that I actually found myself cringing and going "eww" at times when a zombie was making a meal of someone. The pacing was great too. I did not want to put my kindle down until I found out if the good doctor would get his revenge or not. What a fun read! " - Penelope S. Childs

- "What a novel concept, cured zombies! I love how it felt like I was inside of both the head of the infected, and the victims. Who couldn't love Victor Frenzel. If I had to describe the book, I'd say it's The Sopranos, meets Dexter, meets The Walking Dead. Kudos to you Mr. Bradey! " - iRead (Amazon)

- "Yes, Aftereffects has zombies. But these are CURED zombies. The characters are in therapy because they used to be zombies! While telling their stories to the therapist, we get a closeup view of what it is like to remember eating the little boy next door...or grandma. This is a brilliant twist on the typical zombie story. If you've ever wondered what might be going through a zombie's head, if they have any thoughts at all (or any remorse), get Aftereffects and check it out! " -  Elise Robbe

Aftereffects: Zombie Thearapy has received excellent reviews so far: 21 out of 21 are 5-Star Reviews! (5.0 of 5)

About the Author

Zane Bradey on Indie Author News
Zane Bradey about Zane Bradey: "I was born and raised in Michigan, just outside of East Lansing, where I still live with my beautiful wife and six little zombies. Horror has always been my genre. I grew up waiting for the Saturday-morning creature feature. While other kids were watching Scooby -Doo, I was soaking up Vincent Price films. I like the new stuff, but I love the classics. I remember watching George Romero's Night of the Living Dead in black-and-white and thinking, 'that's what I want to write!'

My early writings were short stories, published in anthologies and young fiction magazines. I was even more successful with literary fiction, but my heart has always been in the horror classics and my mind has always been on zombies. In 2011, I set out to write my first zombie novel, Aftereffects: Zombie Therapy. I currently work in a mental health setting. Observing the cases of those suffering from post traumatic stress disorder gave me the basic concept of living life as a cured zombie. With memories of terrifying events relived through flashbacks and nightmares, how do you live life after having been a zombie? You'll have to read Aftereffects to find out.

Aside from being 'the Zombie Guy' I am a full-time husband, father, student, and HR and finance manager. I am currently working on a Master's in Human Resources Management. I hope to find a job in HRD training, unless zombies start paying the bills, in that case, thank you zombies!!!"
