I had the pleasure of chatting with Alan Goldsher last week, the author of upcoming zombie novel "Paul Is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion," which is out in stores on June 22.

Anyone willing to mash The Beatles together with zombies is someone I want to be talking to, and someone you readers should be hearing from.

The title of this new book is "Frankenstein Has Left The Building." It's a project that is still in its early stages of life, but Goldsher has a clear vision for joining what he considers to be two highly complementary tales: those of Elvis Presley and Frankenstein's monster.
