I produced Wordles for THE INFECTION and THE KILLING FLOOR from Permuted Press based on the reviews they received from websites, magazines and other authors. At some point, I’d love to do the same for all the Amazon reviews.

THE INFECTIONWriters don’t write for money. They write to create and to make people happy. This letter (printed here with permission) blew my mind and it’s this kind of mail that keeps writers working hard. Thanks, Bryan! And thanks for your service.

Dear Mr. DiLouie:

I just wanted to say I enjoyed your work on THE INFECTION, THE KILLING FLOOR and TOOTH AND NAIL. I first read THE INFECTION when I was deployed in Afghanistan during 2011-12. I was stationed on a small combat outpost which had only two platoons of soldiers, and our COP came under regular attack from the Taliban at dusk and all through the night. During one month, the COP was attacked 17 days in a row. I often found it hard to shake off the adrenaline of an attack and rack back out in my bed but your book THE INFECTION helped greatly in getting my mind off of COP living. Once I finished the book, I shared it with the rest of my platoon and ordered your book TOOTH AND NAIL which I also enjoyed deeply because like the main character in the book I also am a platoon leader. I just wanted to say thanks for writing such interesting tales that capture true military lingo and tactics. When it comes to writing about the U.S. military in the book it appears you have really done your homework. Well, on behalf of my platoon, thank you for your books and keep on writing.

The Killing Floor by Craig DiLouieGareth 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.”

Thanks, Gareth!

The Infection series by craig reviewed THE INFECTION and THE KILLING FLOOR for a recent podcast, calling them “powerfully written books filled with heartache and loss punctuated with moments of visceral horror and violence. Gripping is an exceedingly accurate description of these stories … I will happily read the next book in the series to see if it grows into a fire. Even if it doesn’t I’m in for the long haul with this series and I highly recommend that you give it a try too.”

Thanks, Rory!

The Killing Floor by Craig DiLouie“The sergeants tell the Hellraisers to form up in ranger file. The squads stack behind them, waiting for the order to advance. Captain Mack growls at First Sergeant Vinson to put the church music out of its misery, and Mozart’s ethereal “Ave Verum Corpus” abruptly dies. In the ensuring vacuum, the distant gunfire presses in a little closer. The music lingers in Rod’s mind, comforting and pure, and he finds himself humming it. One of the flamethrower units sprays a jet of fire onto the pile of burning corpses, setting them ablaze and filling the air with a nauseatingly sweet, rotten, beefy stench Rod can almost taste.”

The Killing Floor by Craig DiLouieRavenous Monster reviewed THE KILLING FLOOR, comparing it to “THE WALKING DEAD with the action and monsters of a LEFT FOR DEAD or RESIDENT EVIL video game. If you’re into the post-apocalypse genre … get this book … You’ll relish walking the line between man and monster as you enter THE KILLING FLOOR.”

Thanks, Robert!
