Inhuman by John Russo (1986): She is the Lizard Queen...

Are they lizard people or the walking dead? Get your horror tropes right yo.

Undead lizard people...sounds like a killer premise to me. Cover kind of looks like the thing from Hammer's "The Reptile" too.

I'm sold.

Oh yeah, I'm just teasing - if I found this in a bookstore I'd buy it!

Met John Russo at HorrorFind a few months ago and he was selling xeroxes of the shooting script for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Nice man, he answered a lot of questions I had about the movie.

I did buy it many years ago! It's actually one of Russo's best -- that and THE AWAKENING.

p.s. my confirmation word is smackula (a vampire who spanks before he bites!)

The top clover blurb implies zombies but the cover image is of a reptile woman. I'd buy this book just to see what was the connection.

Hmmm. I'm pretty sure this one's on the horror shelves at the used place a couple of miles from my house. (The only such establishment in a city of 200,000, as it happens -- pathetic, though I guess my wallet appreciates it. In comparison, I think Little Rock, where I used to live & which is slightly smaller, has about 4, or did when I moved just over a decade ago.)
