Reviews

This cheeky addition to supernatural mashups features an annoyed Scrooge who must take time away from counting his money to ward off a growing zombie population and learn how his special Scroogy DNA may be able to save the world from brain-eating annihilation. Roberts (Yellow Blue Tibia) uses A Christmas Carol as a mere jumping-off point, preferring to put Dickens's characters in increasingly ridiculous situations. Purchase where others of this ilk are popular. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

"Guns blazing silliness to a high degree." --"SF REVU"
"Adam Roberts reworks" A Christmas Carol" into a zombie-slashing gore-fest. Lots of corny jokes and groanworthy one-liners, lots and lots of brain slurping zombies. Clever and daft in equal measure." --"Daily Mail"

"Imagine a historical "Shaun of the Dead" written with as many bad zombie puns as you can think of . . . Like "Monty Python" at its best though, " I Am Scrooge" doesn't talk down to its audience. Ranks alongside "Blackadder's Christmas Carol" as a great comic take on Dickens." "Total Sci Fi""
