How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack
I'm sure there are very similar books out there for zombie attacks, but this was the first I had heard dealing with gnomes. I wonder if there's a gnome subculture out there as there is for zombies, but I suspect not. The author has evidently been asked many times where he got the idea (hey, that's exactly what my dad was asking as I read it!), and he answers that it was a snapshot of a movie that creeped him out. So I suspect he made it up. He also has an amusing blog on the subject over here.
I kinda want to buy a garden gnome now. Since my sister also read this, it could "appear" in various places to scare her!
4/5 stars for pure creativity; probably won't buy it, but it was worth a read
