Author Info
Mark Twain
Mark Twain, the pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, a port on the Mississippi River. As a teenager, he began writing short sketches for his brother's newspaper. When he was older, Clemens became a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi River, a job that ended with the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861. He continued to work as a newspaper reporter, and in 1863 began signing his articles with the name Mark Twain, a Mississippi River phrase meaning "two fathoms deep." In 1865, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" was published, and became a sensation nationwide. THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER was published in 1876, but it was its sequel, HUCKLEBERRY FINN (1884), that is acknowledged as Twain's greatest work. A masterpiece of American literature, the novel is notable among other things for its uniquely American subject and its brilliant use of dialect. Twain's works in general are full of the author's satiric humor, his disdain for pretension and hypocrisy, and his brilliant characterizations.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Mark Twain once said “The rumors of my death were greatly exaggera—BRAINS!!!!!”Pulled from the undead grip of Mark Twain’s rotting zombie hands, this is Tom Sawyer like you’ve never seen him before, in a swashbuckling, treasure-seeking tale spiked with blood, gore, and zombie madness.  In this expanded and illustrated edition of Mark Twain’s beloved tale of boyhood adventure, Tom’s usual mishaps are filled with the macabre.  In a world where a zombie virus turns people into something folks call “Zum,” the United States is infested with a plague of decaying-yet-spry Zum, searching for fresh meat.When vicious, self-aware zombies evolve and threaten the town . . . what will Tom and Huck do to protect their loved ones, and will they live to tell the tale?With all the comedy, romance, and rousing adventure that readers expect from Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer becomes a new kind of hero—a grade-A zombie hunter.
