Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sharyn McCrumb spices her intriguing mysteries with an insider's eye for detail about the fringes of popular culture. In this companion to Bimbos of the Death Sun, she once again turns her attention to the strange sub-culture of science fiction fandom. Back in the 1950s, eight young men bury a time capsule with their science fiction stories, dreaming of literary immortality. When the surviving members of that group get together for a well-publicized excavation nearly four decades later, their reunion is thrown into chaos by a surprise guest: a reportedly dead writer who threatens to expose the group's dark secrets. And when murder gets added to the agenda, it may become impossible to separate science fact from science fiction. Zombies of the Gene Pool highlights McCrumb's wry wit and complete mastery of the puzzling mystery. Narrator Ruth Ann Phimister captures all the drama and humor of this delightful trip inside the colorful world of science fiction fans.

Not Bad

This is not science fiction. It's just fiction. The subject matter deals with science fiction, but that's as close as it gets. And I felt that the author attributed thoughts and feelings to the male character's that really don't happen. Not a bad story, but I'm glad is was a rather short piece. I don't think I could have taken a whole lot more.
