Description

From award-winning author Daryl Gregory, whom Library Journal called "[a] bright new voice of the twenty-first century," comes a new breed of zombie novel--a surprisingly funny, vividly frightening, and ultimately deeply moving story of self-discovery and family love.

In 1968, after the first zombie outbreak, Wanda Mayhall and her three young daughters discover the body of a teenage mother during a snowstorm. Wrapped in the woman's arms is a baby, stone-cold, not breathing, and without a pulse. But then his eyes open and look up at Wanda--and he begins to move.

The family hides the child--whom they name Stony--rather than turn him over to authorities that would destroy him. Against all scientific reason, the undead boy begins to grow. For years his adoptive mother and sisters manage to keep his existence a secret--until one terrifying night when Stony is forced to run and he learns that he is not the only living dead boy left in the world.

Review quote

"Raising Stony Mayhall, like all of Daryl Gregory's stories and novels I've read, is so good that I grieved when I got to the last page, because I wanted it to just go on and on."--Chris Roberson, New York Times bestselling author of iZombie

"A brilliant contribution to the literature of the fantastic. Heartfelt, fascinating, suspenseful, and terrifying, this book involves the reader as only the very best stories can: by entering our dreams--and nightmares."--Jack Skillingstead, author of Harbinger

Praise for Daryl Gregory

"Compelling and creepy . . . evokes the best of Stephen King."--Kirkus Reviews, on The Devil's Alphabet
