READY-TO-WERE The fur really flies when a serial scalper stalks the supernatural citizens of the Unnatural Quarter, targeting werewolves and what s sadder than a chrome-domed lycanthrope? Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble is on the case, trying to stop an all-out gang war between full-time and full-moon werewolves. As he combs through the tangled clues to hunt down the bald facts, things get hairy fast. Shamble lurches through a loony landscape of voodoo tattoo artists, illicit cockatrice fights, body builders assembling make-your-own-human kits, and perhaps scariest of all, crazed fans in town for the Worldwide Horror Convention. Yet the reign of hair-raising terror grows longer. If Shamble can t snip this off at the roots, the whole world could end up howling mad.

"More than half the fun of AndersonÕs latest novel featuring Dan "Shamble," zombie P.I., is listening to performer Phil Gigante wrap his mouth around an assortment of werewolves, ghosts, witches, vampires, and other things that go bump in the night. It's one thing to sound like a drooling, growling vampire, but Gigante manages to sound like a half-dozen, each with a distinct personality. Make no mistake, this novel is a parody, but one that never resorts to clichŽÑexcept to blow it away. Zombie detective Dan Chambeaux (pronounced ÒShambleÓ) juggles multiple cases, including those of a harpy waitress (with a wonderful screechy voice) who has lost a bad-luck charm, Mafia zombies who run a Òchop shopÓ for bodies, and werewolves who are on the verge of war.
