Gareth Wood, author of the great zombie novel RISE, recently reviewed THE KILLING FLOOR from Permuted Press, writing, “The astonishing sequel to THE INFECTION picks up right where the first book left off, and delivers a non-stop brutal ride through post-apocalyptic America … Craig DiLouie’s skill and great talent as an author lies in his vivid imagery. One can imagine oneself being there while the guns are firing, hearing the shells land and feeling the concussion of the blast. One can also imagine the terror that the survivors of the Screaming face day after day as the Infection spreads… This is NOT a traditional zombie tale, by any means. Much more is going on here, slowly revealed through the text. There are layers of meaning and many thought provoking passages in the book, and the grisly is interwoven with the thought-provoking so well that one can virtually hear the ripping of flesh while pondering the eons-long plan of the Brood. To call this a zombie book is a disservice. It is more a book of horrific ecological invasion, a character driven epic of vast potential. This was the best book I have read this year, and I suggest that if you like Horror you would do well to read THE KILLING FLOOR.”
