4 THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE UNDEAD: 1. The undead neither crave nor consume brain matter in its raw form. 2. The undead are capable of rational thought and deep, complex emotions. 3. A post-life body can only be reanimated by witch doctors. 4. A newly resurrected corpse is considered a blank slate--or "cadabra rasa." Welcome to the world of POSTHUMOUS, where being undead is not only a choice, but also the ultimate second chance. In these Living States of America, Resurrectionists, Cremationists, and Burialists grapple with racial equality, patriotism, self-sacrifice, social unrest, broken hearts, failed marriages, and life-altering regret. Bold, poignant, and at times darkly humorous and disturbing, POSTHUMOUS explores an alternate-reality America, a country divided not only by rampant necrophobia, but also by a massive border wall known as Burly Gate. Discover for yourself why death is only the beginning.
