Fables of the Reconstruction
by Hunter S. Jones
Pomba Gira Mysticism. Creole Voodoo. The zombie apocalypse. Sex, drugs, magick.
Meet Pierre von Minzle and Mary Moore. They are the Adam and Lilith, definitely not Adam and Eve, of today's zombie apocalypse. Fables of the Reconstruction is a playful yet graphic sexual adventure consisting of what might have been, combined with what possibly might be happening now. It contains Pomba Gira mysticism, Creole voodoo and the seeds of the zombie apocalypse set in Victorian London's notorious Whitechapel District. Sex, magick , zombies. This ain't your daddy's shotgun zombie story. Mature content warning.
Pomba Gira is a wonderful Goddess. Treat her with respect and reverence and she will bestow her blessings upon you. A beguiling spirit, Pomba Gira gives comfort to the broken hearted, vengeance for the wronged, and a fierce path for those that will take her as muse.
Pomba Gira is the Goddess of the Night. She is the Goddess of guitars, cemeteries, tombs, streets, crossroads, the soul, and the oceans. There are various manifestations of the Goddess, such as Maria Padilha, Compass Rose, Queen of the Seven Crossroads, Pombagira of Calunga, Pombagira of Souls, Gypsy Pombagira, Pombagira Maria Mulambo, Red Rose, Miss Rosie Skull.
This came to me as so many indy books end up in my shelf - word of mouth. Before reading it, I have to admit that I was skeptical. I had no idea how erotic a zombie story could be - and now I get it! I truly enjoyed this. After reading it and thinking about the premise a bit I get the connection. There is a craving and a hunger. I'm not certain if the author meant for it to be allegorical, but it kind of was. Maybe I just read too much into what was supposed to be a straight forward story, but for me there was far more depth than I would think a zombie story would ever have.
I recommend this to two groups. People who love zombie stories and people who are fairly certain zombies aren't their thing. I'm not certain I will start seeking out zombie stories, but I will look for the next Hunter S. Jones book. Supporting independent writers is so important. This is a new writer worthy of backing.
