Blurb/Synopsis:
Like any fifteen-year-old, Alan Chandler has to deal with the horrors of adolescence—social awkwardness, joblessness, and a father who drives him nuts. But there are some not-so-typical horrors too: His father’s job is to resurrect people as anti-terrorist soldiers. Even though his father keeps warning him that the day will come when he’ll need to take over the family business, Alan is more interested in starting an Undead Wrestling Federation—if only he could keep a corpse on its feet for more than a minute at a time.
Meanwhile, troubles are brewing in the Middle East. A mad dictator threatens to start World War III, and Alan knows that if his father leaves for war, he won’t be coming back. Not alive anyway. With the future at stake, Alan must choose between his adolescent dreams and becoming the leader his father needs him to be. He needs to find himself and understand how his powers work...before it’s too late.
My Thoughts
Are you looking for a a twist on a zombie book to sink your teeth into look no further Richard B Knight will deliver with his book A Boy & His Corpse. In this telling tale a young boy can reanimate the dead but at a cost that cost is his relationship with his parents. Can he bring the dead back to save the world and still have a regular relationship with his parents? Mr. Knight has has weaved a story unlike any other I have read. I love the horror aspect of this read though at times I found myself just gazing. He has created a wonderful cast of characters though I did not connect with any of them it was still a masterfully woven tale. I will be checking out other books Mr. Knight has composed because his writing is so fluid. I may not have connected full force with this tale but it still made for an interesting read.


Richard B. Knight (The "B" stands for "Brandon") teaches Language Arts during the day and writes fiction at night. He decided that he wanted to be a novelist back in the fourth grade. It was all quite spontaneous. Back then, his teacher asked all of the students what they wanted to be when they grew up, and while many students chose "doctor", or "lawyer", or "astronaut", Richard, wanting to be funny, chose "drag queen garbage man". It wasn't until his peers starting reading off their choices that Richard decided that it would probably behoove him to write down another profession. He has stuck with "novelist" ever since.

Richard has a love of movies, video games, and comic books, and all three influences come through in his writing. He currently lives in Clifton, New Jersey with his lovely wife, Rona.
