Curtis, a young college student is dragged to his first gay club by his best friend Jimmy for a night of dancing, drinking and sex…at least until the dead start to rise and attack the club. Trapped inside the Asylum are a small band of survivors, including a drag queen, a male stripper, a Vietnam vet bartender, a pretentious gay couple, and an unstable DJ. Will this motley crew survive the hungry undead rattling the sealed-off doors? Will they survive each other? Will they survive their own personal demons? Asylum recalls George Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead–except with more gore and a more current social message. Reviews: “…an extremely fun, fast-paced read. Highly recommended for zombie fans, especially those purists who enjoy the classic Romero-inspired zombies.” --Skull Salad Reviews, T.J. McIntyre “Gunnells had me from the first sentence. ASYLUM starts off with a hook up in the parking lot of a gay night club and just skyrockets from there.” --BETWIXT “…the story is handled from inside each of the characters in turn as they hole up against the zombie attack. Mark does a great job constructing unique back stories and traits for each character, which is a big plus. We’re privy to their demons as death stares them in the face and there is a lot of emotional weight that adds depth to their predicament. I’m picky with story endings, but for me, Mark hit just the right notes in the final paragraphs—creating both a whimper and a resonant bang.” --thecrowscaw
