I dare say ole chap, this tale is most peculiar.
Brodie Booster had a brogue accent and wasn't very smart. He concerned himself mostly on 'hedonic matters' like electronic games and lived with a manservant called Reeves. On a night filled with zombies Brodie's Aunt came to tell him something that was important but she had died two weeks ago! She began explaining how a maid of hers had stolen a book of magic spells and thought she had something to do with the zombie attack....
Turns out, it was a Witch who let loose the dead/revenant/zombies and was caught in her own spell and needed some help.
The novella had a lot of dialogue which made it all the more alluring.
Booster and Reeves: The Night of the Revenants
After a visit from his dead Aunt Gertie, a quick trip to a hardware store, and a harrowing trek across town, Booster and Reeves confront the source of the confounded nuisance and try to put a stop to the bebothersome zombies once and for all. Perhaps they even meet a new friend along the way, though I wouldn't bally well count on it. Not everyone is all that friendly, after all.
