There’s been a lot happening behind the scenes at IB Towers and today we’re delighted to reveal one of those things: we’ve just signed with Michael Preissl to sell foreign language rights of Infected Books titles.
Some of you will know Michael as chief of genre publisher, Voodoo Press, who have of course snapped up the German language rights of several Infected Books titles. We’re thrilled to now have Michael on board to pitch IB titles to other European countries and beyond.
Stay tuned for more news on this and other exciting developments at IB!
The covers of two Infected Books titles picked up for translation into German language have been revealed by publisher Voodoo Press. The first will be quite familiar to IB readers, being a riff on the original cover of Wayne Simmons’ THE GIRL IN THE BASEMENT (designed by Sion Smith) while the other cover, designed by Michael Preissl, makes for a completely different take on David Moody’s TRUST.
We’ll bring you more details on these, and other Infected Books titles picked up by Voodoo for translation, as we get it.
Mr Sion Smith is no stranger around these parts. Having designed the cover for one of our bestselling titles, Wayne Simmons’ THE GIRL IN THE BASEMENT, he’s part of our ever growing Infected family! As Sion releases a new book, THE FAMILY OF NOISE, with a great evening at Waterstones to celebrate such, we sent our man Wayne to meet with him and have a chat about all things writerly and publishly. It’s going to be a long one so grab yourself a drink, kick back and enjoy!

Coming August 2015 from Infected Books is VOODOO CHILD, a brand new horror novel by Andre Duza (DEAD BITCH ARMY, HOLLOW EYED MARY, KING DOLLAR) and Wayne Simmons (FLU, THE GIRL IN THE BASEMENT). VOODOO CHILD is a homage book, a love letter to the slasher craze of the 80s as well as the works of legendary horror hacks such as Richard Laymon. ‘The 80s was to horror cinema what the 60s was to the music industry,’ Duza comments. ‘Voodoo Child is in essence my thank you to the decade that raised me, and to the directors/ writers/ FX gurus that populated the era.’
The cover art for VOODOO CHILD is by veteran horror artist, Alex McVey, who has designed covers for such staples of the genre as Stephen King, Peter Straub and Joe Hill.
‘I think this cover speaks volumes of what you can expect from the book,’ Simmons points out. ‘Andre and I are a similar age. We’re both children of the 80s and remember the joys of visiting the local video store and choosing something from the horror section based solely on how gory and over-the-top and lewd the cover art was. This book speaks to the teenage gore hound still within many horror fans today.’
VOODOO CHILD will see release through Infected Books in August 2015 on both e-book and a special vintage-styled, pulp-sized paperback format.
Be very afraid…
Yes, today we’re looking back at the classic zombie antho, THE HUMAN CONDITION, Moody’s final book in the acclaimed AUTUMN series. Part-companion, part-guidebook and part-sequel, AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION follows the individual stories of these desperate survivors through their final dark days.
“This book is my last word on AUTUMN,” Moody explained back when the book was released. “This collection of stories wraps in, out and around the five main novels and adds hugely to the scope of the overall plot. I killed billions of people on the first page of the first book – this is my opportunity to do a little digging into some aspects of the apocalypse you don’t usually see… to look into some of the darkest corners of the dead AUTUMN world…”

But, for e-book readers, you just can’t beat this deal where AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION is part of compendium, THE ULTIMATE UNDEAD COLLECTION, along with 9 other titles including books by fan favourites Timothy W.
