Written back in the heyday of Permuted Press and now considered classics in zombie fiction, THE INFECTION and THE KILLING FLOOR have been re-released with a new edit, new covers, and a new low price. I recently acquired the rights back from Permuted, which led to these new editions and, later in 2021, a third book to finally make it a trilogy.
A mysterious virus suddenly strikes down millions. Three days later, its victims awake with a single purpose: spread the Infection. As the world lurches toward the apocalypse, some of the infected continue to change, transforming into horrific monsters.
In one American city, a small group struggles to survive. Sarge, a tank commander hardened by years of fighting in Afghanistan. Wendy, a cop still fighting for law and order in a lawless land. Ethan, a teacher searching for his lost family. Todd, a high school student who sees second chances in the end of the world. Paul, a minister who wonders why God has forsaken his children. And Anne, their mysterious leader, who holds an almost fanatical hatred for the infected.
Together, they fight their way to a massive refugee camp where thousands have made a stand. There, what’s left of the government will ask them to accept a mission that will determine the survival of them all—a dangerous journey back onto the open road and into the very heart of Infection.
Get it here.
THE KILLING FLOOR
The mystery virus struck down millions. Three days later, its victims awoke with a single violent purpose: spread the Infection. As the world lurches toward apocalypse, America’s far-flung military returns home to wage a horrific war against its own country.
Far from the front lines, Ray Young, survivor of a fight to save a refugee camp from hordes of infected fleeing the burning ruins of Pittsburgh, awakes from a coma to learn he has also survived Infection. But this is no miracle. Ray is not immune. Instead, he has been transformed into a super-weapon that could end the world … or save it.
In THE KILLING FLOOR, Craig DiLouie’s chilling apocalyptic vision portrayed in THE INFECTION continues, presenting a nightmarish struggle for survival like no other.
Get it here.
THE FINAL CUT
Months after Infection turned the world into a slaughterhouse and laboratory for new horrific forms of life, humanity counts its losses and loses hope. The apocalypse continues to build one day at a time, though the world isn’t ending. It is becoming something new.
In a small town in West Virginia, a tiny but significant battle ends with humanity finally gaining a pure sample of Infection. Licking their wounds, the survivors set out for Fort Detrick, home of USAMRIID, where the Army studies germ warfare.
There, Infection will offer them the ultimate choice: kill, die, or adapt.
