Sometimes we’re frustratingly slow at sharing good news, but this takes the biscuit. We’ve been working hard for the last couple of years to make Infected Books titles available as audiobooks – so hard that we completely forgot to update the website! Let’s put that right immediately!
We’re very pleased to announce the release next month of David Moody‘s new short story collection, THE LAST BIG THING. This is a collection which has been more than a decade in the making, and which brings together some of the author’s favourite (generally non-zombie) short stories.
We sit in our own little bubbles, watching the rest of the world go by. We think ‘it’ll never happen to me’ but guess what? At some point it probably will. We might think we’re in control but believe me, there’s a lot we don’t know.
In the spirit of The Twilight Zone and Tales of the Unexpected, cult author David Moody presents eleven stories about life, death and everything in between (and after).
From the never-ending nightmare of domestic bliss to the search for the ultimate body modification, from warring families to warring nations, from the last minutes before doomsday to the polluted shores of the post-post-apocalypse, THE LAST BIG THING highlights how thin the line between the ordinary and extraordinary can be.
THE LAST BIG THING will be released on 8 January as an ebook and hardcover. The hardcover (which we absolutely recommend) is your best option for viewing the magnificent, easter-egg-filled cover art by longtime Infected Books collaborator, Craig Paton.
You can pre-order the collection from this site today and immediately download the ebook version. And there’s more – three lucky pre-orderers will also receive advance reviewer copies of David Moody’s next novel, ALL ROADS END HERE (out in February 2019).
Apparently there was a football match last night which may have distracted some of our UK readers, so today we’re repeating news of our latest release. XINNERS by WAYNE SIMMONS is a pulpy science-fiction horror story he describes as ‘Dawn of the Dead meets Battle Beyond the Stars’. And if that description doesn’t get your pulse racing, you’re either too young to have seen Battle Beyond the Stars or you’re as dead as one of the zombies inhabiting the massive, derelict space ship where the book takes place. More details here. The book’s available from Amazon here.
THE UNDEAD NAZI ARMY CONTINUES ITS MARCH ACROSS EUROPE IN THE THRILLING SEQUEL TO SCREAMING EAGLES!
The German stranglehold on the town of Bastogne has been released, only for the living dead to rise up and take their place. A ragtag group of men fight their way out of the chaos and make a frantic escape from the rubble and ruin. One of them, British soldier Lieutenant Robert Wilkins, uncovers crucial information about the source of the zombie scourge. Along with a crack team, Wilkins is dispatched to where the outbreak began – the ominously silent concentration camp at Polonezköy, Poland – to try and find a way to halt the undead advance.
The fate of the entire world rests on the shoulders of just a handful of men.
Pre-order now for $2.99 from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.ca and Amazon.de. Signed paperbacks are available from our store. Remember, with all orders from www.infectedbooks.co.uk you’ll get free shipping if you’re in the UK, and a complementary ebook version of the novel.
Cover art for RED DEVILS is by the outrageously talented ELOISE J. KNAPP.
David Moody has just announced the winner of our Pitch and Page competition:
“It’s with great pleasure that I’m able to announce the winner of the Infected Books Year of the Zombie Pitch and Page competition. It’s taken a while for the judging process to be completed, and I’m sorry to have kept folks waiting for the result. We had a good number of entries, but there was a clear favourite which judges Michael Preissl, Gina Panettieri and I unanimously picked.
Congratulations to SCOTT MCGLASSON. Scott’s novella NOCK will be October’s Year of the Zombie release.
Huge thanks to EVERYONE who entered the competition. I’d like to particularly mention a number of other great writers who were highly commended by the judges: Dan Howarth, Matthew Gilman, Angela Bodine and Mouse-Diver Dudfield.”
Congratulations , Scott! Check back here soon for more information about NOCK!
You may have noticed that our latest release – David Moody‘s STRANGERS – is currently out of stock. We’ve had a great reaction to the book, and we’ve sold out of signed paperbacks. But don’t worry! New stocks are due in the first days of January, so go ahead and place your order and we’ll get the book signed and shipped as soon as possible!
Purchase one of the following titles direct from Infected Books, and you’ll immediately receive a download code to get a complementary ebook version (Kindle and ePub). Don’t pay for the same book twice!
The book’s going down a storm, with 2BookLoversReviews saying “If you love a story that gets into the darkness of the human soul, you will love Strangers“. Author Amy Braun says “I’ve always been a fan of David Moody because he isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of horror. He doesn’t mind writing stories that are twisted and dark and that make you squirm as you read. That’s what a true horror author sets out to achieve, and Strangers definitely achieved its goal in doing that.”
We’re pleased to announce that Wayne Simmons has officially joined the Infected Books team. Wayne will be taking responsibility for much of the marketing and promotion of the IB catalogue, a role which will be increasingly important given the ambitious plans we have to expand the Infected empire in 2015 and beyond.
Of course, Wayne’s no stranger to these parts, having already been published by IB. His brutal noir novella GIRL IN THE BASEMENT has been a huge hit for us. You’ll also know him from his previous novels including FLU, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, and PLASTIC JESUS (which the Guardian described as “a stunning read, but not for the faint hearted“). Wayne’s also the driving force behind SCARdiff – a new horror expo which takes place in Cardiff each October. It’s only two years old, but SCARdiff’s already earned itself a place on the discerning horror fan’s annual calendar.
IB head honcho David Moody said, “I’m thrilled to have Wayne on board with IB. We’ve been good friends for a long time and have similar views on genre and publishing as a whole. I’m looking forward to us working together more formally, and seeing just how far we can spread the infection!”
