About Bob Fingerman

Bob Fingerman is the award-winning creator of such critically acclaimed graphic novels as "Beg the Question," "White Like She, " and "Recess Pieces." In his novel, "Bottomfeeder," Fingerman tossed away the typical gothic and romantic trappings of the vampire genre in favor of portraying the down-to-earth story of a working class Queens-bred vampire. In "Recess Pieces," Fingerman whipped up a bloody maelstrom of adorable moppets and the living dead set within the confines of a school. In the uneasy romantic roman a clef "Beg the Question" he presented anxious young love in the streets of Brooklyn long before gentrification. His most recent graphic novel is "From the Ashes," a "speculative memoir" set in the post-apocalyptic ruins of New York City. He will have a short story in the eagerly anticipated zombie anthology "The Living Dead 2." He lives in New York City with his wife, Michele.show more

Review quote

"Fingerman is a brilliant satirist, artist and mind." -- Trey Parker, co-creator of "South Park""It doesn't seem fair that Bob Fingerman gets to be such a funny, savvy, cool and smart writer who can also draw. It gives him an advantage and I may need to have him assassinated." -- Augusten Burroughs, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Running with Scissors""Mr. Fingerman is a deeply talent, creative, and disturbed man." -- Max Brooks, "New York Times" bestselling author of "World War Z""The thinking man's zombie novel." -- Mike Mignola, creator of "Hellboy""If you're thinking: 'Not another zombie novel, ' this is definitely the book for you. Bob Fingerman's "Pariah" is a testament to the versatility of zombie fiction. It is, quite simply, a work that will remind you why you fell in love with the genre in the first place." -- Robert Kirkman, author of "The Walking Dead""If you think there are no original twists left in the zombie genre, think again. With "Pariah," Bob Fingerman crafts an exciting, fresh take on it, breathing much-needed new life into the undead. "Pariah" is a clever, compelling read." -- Brian Keene, "The Rising""As grim as it gets. Zombie fans looking for unrelenting grue and apocalyptic mayhem need look no further. But there's a heart to this story, too, in the immaculately crafted characters--the survivors, the last of the human race, pushing themselves well past where the struggle for survival ends and there's nothing left but to hold on and hope. A masterpiece of the zombie genre, for its realism and its courage to embrace the darkness." -- David Wellington, author of "Monster"" Island" and "Vampire Zero"show more
