In the wake of an outbreak that sweeps the globe, the scattered survivors are left in a desperate fight to survive, as the dead rise to feast on the living. The Demott family is ending a weekend of camping by visiting a scenic river-walkway. When the sounds of chaos and panic come from the city ahead, they are propelled into a frenzied flight in search of safety. Will Norman is on his way to class in Manhattan when his commute turns into a harrowing, life-or-death journey. Tar Morrison watches his idyllic Rocky Mountain community fray at the seams. Their isolation has limited exposure to the infection, but for how long? Will their efforts be enough, or will the task at hand prove too much? Harvest of Ruin follows an array of survivors, focusing on the panic, terror and cost of surviving in a dying world.
The Dead of Winter is the epic sequel to Harvest of Ruin. The tale begins where Harvest of Ruin left off: barely a week has passed since the infection swept the country turning people into the ravenous dead. In New York, Tim DeMott, along with his friend Bjorn and their families have been forced to flee the warehouse they had sheltered in since the start. Cast out into the unknown at night, they face an uncertain future. Jen and Will, having escaped from congested New Jersey, encounter the families on the road after a harrowing flight from a massive horde of zombies. The two groups reluctantly move together in search of safety. In Colorado, the survivors living in the small town of Donner nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, are able to make preparations. Their isolation allowed them to prepare for the coming of the dead, but they aren't prepared for an assault by an organized force of marauders. The Dead of Winter follows a broad swath of survivors as they seek shelter or make their way across a devastated landscape filled with undead. As the deep cold of winter sets in everyone struggles to survive.

Detective-story master Dashiell Hammett gives us yet another unforgettable read in Red Harvest: When the last honest citizen of Poisonville was murdered, the Continental Op stayed on to punish the guilty--even if that meant taking on an entire town. Red Harvest is more than a superb crime novel: it is a classic exploration of corruption and violence in the American grain.
Zombies. The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected, and they died. Then they came back. No one is safe from the undead. As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The British press was nationalised. Martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the United Kingdom were to be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast, the Scottish Highlands, and in the Irish Republic. Bill Wright, a Westminster insider and an advisor to a future Prime Minister, broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees. He watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead. Then the power went out. He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades old conspiracy, and his unwitting part in it. This is the first volume of his journal. (73,000 words)

VEGAN ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE: In the post-apocalypse worlderness, zombies rule the earth. They're allergic to meat, and brains literally make them explode. Zombies now eat blood potatoes, parasitic tubers grown in the flesh of humancows corralled in maximum security farms. The necros, barbaric human nomads travelling the worlderness in floating villages, worship the zombies. The necros both eat the zombies, and wear clothes made from them; they live in houses built of bricks of undead flesh. They also keep zombies as sex slaves. Two fugitives meet in the ancient ruins of Texas. The first is Soil 15-f, a womancow who's escaped her farm a week before she's due to be killed and her blood potato crop harvested. The second fugitive is Able Kane, former head necros food technician, now sentenced to death for heresy. But Soil is no ordinary humancow. Unknown to herself, she's the vegan zombie agricultural revolution, and the zombies desperately want her back. And the necros equally desperately want Able Kane dead. He's fled with a forbidden discovery which will reshape the world for the worse if used. And Able is just hardheaded/misguided enough to use it. With android zombinators and the head necros assassin (Able's ex-girlfriend Morphia) after them, Soil and Able Kane have no choice but to climb the lemon tree to Haeven, residence of the zombie god Necro. And by anyone's reckoning, Soil and Able Kane are the two people in the worlderness who should never have been let into Heaven. Back cover description: Fear not mankind, the omniscient God Necro proclaims that your tasty brains will be safe from the ravenous undead during the impending zombie apocalypse. Unfortunately for most of you, however, the enlightened zombie hoard plans to herd you like cattle on their potato plantations and use your fertile bodies to grow their specialized blood veggies. Only by prostrating yourself before the Great Necro can you join forces with other faithful necros and defend humanity from the ever encroaching zombie invasion. But it won't be easy, especially if you've just escaped from the vegfarm - and you already have the cattle brand on your forehead and the telltale potato vines sprouting from your body. Bounty-hunting zombinators, flying cleaver-laden helicopters and cockrockets, will soon be hot on your trail as you race toward the Promised Land and the sanctuary that is known as the Republic of Texas. Not only is "Vegan Zombie Apocalypse" one of the most bizarre stories ever conceived, but its universal appeal should extend far beyond its bizarro fan base. Enthusiasts of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, and especially zombie fiction lovers, should relish this book, even though it ventures into the dark realm of the extraordinarily grotesque at times... many times actually.

It's the end of the world and Sam Bland feels fine. The apocalypse hit like a tsunami, too fast for any government agency to contain. Sam is not a hero. He's a reclusive psychology professor, wholly unprepared for survival, but spared from the virus by his antisocial tendencies. He didn't like society before, and now all the phonies who made life miserable are zombies trying to eat him, but at least he doesn't have to talk to them anymore. Charisse is his last glimmer of hope, but she's a head-case, owned by a sociopathic yuppie warlord, and she might be playing him. That doesn't deter Sam as he traverses the city, learning to kill and live amidst the dying and the killers, while alpha men fight for domination around him. In order to liberate the woman he thinks he loves, Sam must face the demons running amok in the world and in his head.
