Uh-oh, these zombies know parkour. We’re toast.
My kids love MINECRAFT. This video imagines if that world were real:
Chris Marrs and I recently got back from Necon, which was a fantastic experience. Wonderful to reconnect with friends like John Dixon, Matt Schwartz, Megan Hart, Rena Mason, Patrick Freivald, Rob E. Boley, Stephanie M. Wytovich, Hal Bodner and many others. Also enjoyed making new friends like Lynne Hansen, Chris Irvin, Douglas Wynne, Bracken MacLeod, Tony Tremblay and more. Kudos to the people who put the con together, it’s a real labor of love.
One of the highlights for me was participating in the apocalyptic panel featuring (left to right in the below photo) me, Lynne Hansen, Douglas Wynne, Mark Morris, James A. Moore and Joe Hill.
Also bought a wicked set of hardcover Robert E. Howard books in the dealer’s room; I plan to revisit this author who inspired me to write fiction when I was a kid.
The trailer for THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, a film adaptation of the novel by MR Carey, recently dropped. Looks pretty faithful to the book and well put together. Count me excited at the prospect of another big-budget zombie movie. Especially one that offers great set-pieces while also telling us a good story with characters I actually care about.

Big announcement today–THE RETREAT #4: ALAMO is now available for Kindle!
During the long retreat out of Philadelphia, First Battalion arrives at High Point Special Facility, the Alamo of the U.S. government. Lt. Colonel Lee secures the fort built around the facility but learns of an outbreak in the underground bunker, where the U.S. government is hiding. The President has been infected.
While thousands of laughing infected lay siege to the facility, Sergeant Muldoon, Corporal Rawlings, and a platoon of lightfighters go deep into the bowels of the earth on a deadly mission: terminate the President of the United States.
The President is waiting.
THE RETREAT is a military apocalyptic thriller series I’m writing with the great Stephen Knight and Joe McKinney. After writing the first episode, I was happy to come back for #4: ALAMO.
In ALAMO, First Battalion faces one of its biggest challenges yet–I hope you enjoy the story and the action!
