Zombies in Time and Space-multiple authors-(Wild Cat Books)
In the far flung future of planet Earth, the perfectly round orb of a satellite hovered like a gleaming beacon in the sky. It was a new dawn of mankind, when the great scientists had finally harnessed the intricate mysteries of quantum physics as well as tachyon time travel. The breed of beings called "human" had eventually discovered a means to travel throughout time and space. However, there was a minor glitch in the system. After many eons, the greatest minds had conquered the apparent impossibility of time travel without borders. They could transmit matter to any time or place, but there was one border that they could never get beyond... No living organic matter could pass between the realms that make up the endless universe. And thus began the Zombie Institute of Time and Space. And so begins the chronicles of an exciting new concept in "undead" fiction. Seven thrilling tales of terror from some of today's most talented pulp fictioneers, including Robert Morganbesser, John L. French, S. Clayton Rhodes, David Burton and Ver Curtiss. Take a terrifying journey through time and space with the most hideous soldiers ever conceived by science! Cover Art by Nick Neocleous.
