Zombie Spaceship Wasteland

After being somewhat tangentially aware of Patton Oswalt and his particular brand of smart, meta pop culture, fanboy friendly comedy for years, I read his brilliant rant Wake Up, Geek Culture. Time to Die in last month’s issue of Wired magazine and instantly wanted more. Well to my great surprise and utter delight I happened to see Mr. Oswalt’s first book Zombie Spaceship Wasteland show up on KPL’s weekly updated list of new nonfiction titles! The book is classified as 921 – biography, but those looking for a traditional biography of Patton Oswalt would be much better served by consulting his Wikipedia page and reading Zombie Spaceship Wasteland because they like Oswalt’s comedy. The book is a mish-mash of memoir writing, experimental essay, greating cards gone wrong, and more, but it is all hilarious.
