Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to really meet the Beatles. This is a delightfully gory retelling of the Beatles’ US tour that reimagines the Liverpool foursome as bloodthirsty zombies who take over the world … literally! For John Lennon, a young, idealistic zombie guitarist with dreams of global domination, Liverpool seems the ideal place to form a band that could take over the world. In an inspired act, Lennon kills and reanimates local rocker Paul McCartney, kicking off an unstoppable partnership. With the addition of newly zombified guitarist George Harrison and drummer/Seventh Level Ninja Lord Ringo Starr, the Beatles soon cut a swath of bloody good music and bloody violent mayhem across Europe, America, and the entire planet. In this searing oral history, discover how the Fab Four climbed to the Toppermost of the Poppermost while stealing the hearts, ears, and brains of smitten teenage girls. Learn the tale behind a spiritual journey that resulted in the dismemberment of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Marvel at the seemingly indestructible quartet’s survival of a fierce attack by Eighth Level Ninja Lord Yoko Ono. And find out how the boys escaped eternal death at the hands of England’s greatest zombie hunter, Mick Jagger. Through all this, one mystery remains: Can the Beatles sublimate their hunger for gray matter, remain on top of the charts, and stay together for all eternity? After all, three of the Fab Four are zombies, and zombies live forever.

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to really meet the Beatles. This is a delightfully gory retelling of the Beatles’ US tour that reimagines the Liverpool foursome as bloodthirsty zombies who take over the world … literally!

For John Lennon, a young, idealistic zombie guitarist with dreams of global domination, Liverpool seems the ideal place to form a band that could take over the world. In an inspired act, Lennon kills and reanimates local rocker Paul McCartney, kicking off an unstoppable partnership. With the addition of newly zombified guitarist George Harrison and drummer/Seventh Level Ninja Lord Ringo Starr, the Beatles soon cut a swath of bloody good music and bloody violent mayhem across Europe, America, and the entire planet.

In this searing oral history, discover how the Fab Four climbed to the Toppermost of the Poppermost while stealing the hearts, ears, and brains of smitten teenage girls. Learn the tale behind a spiritual journey that resulted in the dismemberment of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Marvel at the seemingly indestructible quartet’s survival of a fierce attack by Eighth Level Ninja Lord Yoko Ono. And find out how the boys escaped eternal death at the hands of England’s greatest zombie hunter, Mick Jagger.

Through all this, one mystery remains: Can the Beatles sublimate their hunger for gray matter, remain on top of the charts, and stay together for all eternity? After all, three of the Fab Four are zombies, and zombies live forever.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Brilliant and hilarious. Two decaying thumbs up.” Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award–winning author of Patient Zero
“Paul Is Undead caused this reviewer to laugh hard enough to pull a muscle. Which muscle exactly will never be revealed, but Goldsher could go on a quest similar to the one chronicled in this book and find out how many others have injured themselves from reading this hilarious work.” New York Journal of Books
“Roughly paralleling the real-world career of the Beatles, this alternate history reimagines successes, failures, and rivalries with over-the-top bizarro charm.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Goldsher turns in a classic rags-to-riches tale of aspiration and success that would do Horatio Alger proud, punctuated by no end of gore.” Kirkus Reviews
“Paul Is Undead may be the most lively Beatles book to come down the long and winding road in years. It’s bloody brilliant!” Examiner.com
“This is one of my favorite reviews because, for the first time, I was able to include not only clips from the audiobook, but comments from both the author and the narrator. The story is a hilarious mashup offering an ingenious take on the Beatles legend. Narrator Simon Vance brings it to life (or death, depending on your perspective) with an incredible audio performance.” AudiobookDJ.com
“A postmodern gothic classic.” Mick Wall, author of When Giants Walked the Earth: A Biography of Led Zeppelin
“Hilarious.” Michael Ian Black, comedian and author of Clappy As a Ham
