“These are gluten-free, vegan pancakes,” Jacqueline Mary called out as she brought out a new stack of flapjacks, against the backdrop of a transexual man masturbating. “If you are not vegan or gluten free, don’t fuckin’ eat them. Because we don’t have that many. More will be coming out.”
If the Frying Pan’s “Rocking Dead” isn’t enough undead to get your fix of braaaains this spring then don’t miss what’s sure to be a lively discussion between authors of the zombie genre at WORD Bookstore. The event celebrates the release of David Wellington’s latest novel, Positive, an epic tale set in a world where “positives” are segregated from society and marked with a plus sign on their forehead, signifying that at any time they could break out with a virus that turns people into ravenous monsters. The panel also includes Max Brallier (Can YOU Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?), and John Campbell (Drifters). Wednesday, April 29, 7 p.m. WORD Bookstore, 126 Franklin Street (Greenpoint).
