the retreat 1 audiobook coverFrom Blue Heron Publishing, THE RETREAT #1: PANDEMIC, which I authored as part of an apocalyptic thriller series with Stephen Knight and Joe McKinney, is now available as an audiobook!

This edition is narrated by the great RC Bray, with whom I had the pleasure of working with for the audiobook editions of SUFFER THE CHILDREN and CRASH DIVE. His performance for THE RETREAT is every bit as fantastic as you’d expect if you’re a fan of his work.

Alf Lovvord, an SFX artist and aspiring director from Norway, made an incredible trailer for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE ZOMBIES AND THE GIANT KILLER PLANTS ON SOME SERIOUS ACID.

Fun to watch just for the set-piece effects. Hope somebody gives this guy some money.

INFECTION WARTHE INFECTION WAR is now available!

This special bind-up edition from Permuted Press presents the classic zombie novels THE INFECTION and THE KILLING FLOOR in a single volume.

I’m thrilled about this edition for three reasons. First, this edition has an incredible foreword by the great Joe McKinney, whose work, along with David Moody’s, inspired me to take my first stab at zombie fiction. Second, it will be available in select bookstores via Simon & Schuster. And third, I gave both books a thorough new edit so they read even better than before.

THE INFECTION WAR is available from a limited print run, so get your copy while it’s available! Thanks for reading!

Get it at your local bookstore, at Amazon here or at Barnes and Noble’s website here.

P.S. Yes, I’m still hoping to do a third book in the series!

AppShoo posted a video with trailers for some good zombie movies coming up in 2016 and 2017. EXTINCTION in particular looks good.

I was surprised they didn’t include PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. The trailer doesn’t look half bad.

For 2017, WWZ 2 may be coming, and possibly even another 28 DAYS LATER movie, this one 28 MONTHS LATER?

THE-RETREAT-3-DIE-LAUGHINGHappy New Year! A great way to start 2016 for me is to tell you THE RETREAT #3: DIE LAUGHING is now available for the Kindle.

This long-awaited third episode of the popular THE RETREAT series takes the 10th Mountain Division boys to Philadelphia, which is held by the Pennsylvania National Guard–and results in the lost battalion battling not only the infected, but potentially a superior military force.

The series is written by me (Episode #1), Stephen Knight (#2) and Joe McKinney, who penned this exciting third episode. I’ll be coming back to the series soon with Episode #4–I hope you’ll stayed tuned for more news on that.

Get it here!

THE RETREAT is coming to audiobook in early 2016 thanks to a new deal with Blue Heron.

The great R.C. Bray, who narrated SUFFER THE CHILDREN and CRASH DIVE, will be doing the narrating.

Blue Heron put together a nifty website promoting the series, which I’m authoring with Stephen Knight and Joe McKinney. Featured are links to the eBooks, an audio preview and some creepy sound effects.

Check it out here.

THE FRONTA while back, I was happy to announce that I’m teaming up with the great David Moody and Timothy Long on a new zombie series set during World War 2: THE FRONT.

The first episode (SCREAMING EAGLES), written by Tim Long, starts during the Battle of the Bulge, where the 101st Airborne fights hard to steam the German onslaught. Then another wave comes out of the mist, but bullets don’t put them down …

More good news! Episode #1 is on sale for $0.99 for the next three days. You can get it for Kindle here.

David Moody is now working on Episode #2, which will see the British paratroopers–the Red Devils–join up with the Americans for a special mission to a horrifying place. Episode #3, BERLIN OR BUST, will see the feared German paratroopers join up in a new mission to the dying capital of Nazi Germany.

This is one of the series that’s a ton of fun to write and I hope as fun to read. Check it out.
