Eat Slay Zombie by Alinta McGrady

A bowling alley, 2 best friends and a sh*t ton of Zombies.

Never fear, the @BLKBUNKERBTCHES are here!

The zombie apocalypse has finally happened and TikTok is the sole form of communication. This is a world of zombie kill tally’s, educational doomsday TikTok’s, and out-of-bounds Bunnings. Sheree and Tash are bunking down in a bowling alley, when another survivor turns up, challenging their isolation. Maybe it’s time to explore who, and what else, is out there? With big decisions to make, and no working flamethrower to protect them, how do two blak women navigate a world that is actively trying to kill them?

Eat Slay Zombie is a horror/comedy about colonisation, friendship and state occupation – except it’s zombies.
