The Last Big Thing

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).

The Front: Red Devils – out next week

Our first release of 2017 is out on 15 February – DAVID MOODY’S THE FRONT: RED DEVILS.

The book is a continuation of a series created by TIMOTHY W. LONG (who wrote the first book, SCREAMING EAGLES) and CRAIG DILOUIE (who will release book three, BERLIN OR BUST, later in 2017).

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.

KILLCHAIN (YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE 1) by Adam Baker

kcHappy new year to all our readers! And no better way, we reckon, to see in the new year than with the first novella in our brand new YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE series!

Year of the Zombie promises 12 exclusive novella releases throughout 2016 from some of the best in the business, the first being the awesome KILLCHAIN by Adam Baker (bestselling author of OUTPOST and JUGGERNAUT).

Elize arrives in Mogadishu with instructions to assassinate a Russian embassy official. She has tactical command of a US kill-team, CIA operatives, rookies and veterans of a dozen war zones. It should be a straightforward hit but her luck is about to run out. She will soon find herself trapped in a city gone to hell, struggling to complete her mission in the face of betrayal, a spreading pandemic and a population hungry for flesh…

Set within the same world as Baker’s bestselling novels OUTPOST, JUGGERNAUT, TERMINUS and IMPACT, KILLCHAIN will appeal to fans of zombie horror and high-octane thrillers.

Praise for Baker’s previous work:

‘JUGGERNAUT is hugely entertaining and as unstoppable as its namesake.’ (Financial Times)

‘There’s no denying the strength of Baker’s prose.’ (SFX Magazine)

‘An original and pacy debut.’ (Daily Mail)

‘It had me on the edge of my seat from page one.’ (Stephen Leather on OUTPOST).

‘A lock-and-load adventure of the highest calibre.’ (Adam Nevill on JUGGERNAUT)

Grab KILLCHAIN now at Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.de. The novella is also available to read for free if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited.

VOODOO CHILD by Andre Duza & Wayne Simmons available now!

 

9780957656352-Perfect.indd‘The literary equivalent of the classic horror films of the 80s. ‘ (Harry Manfredini, Film Composer: FRIDAY THE 13TH, THE HILLS HAVE EYES II, WISHMASTER)

You’ve been warned! 
Stay away from Blackwater, Louisiana. Behind the smiles and the southern hospitality lies a dark secret. 

You’ve been warned! 
Don’t go in the woods. They’re haunted. 

You’ve been warned! 
Don’t go in the lake. There’s a dead witch beneath those waters. 

Lori Sawyer was raised in these parts. The biracial descendant of a Voodoo Priestess, she’s known as “witchy girl” to her friends, Abby and Roxy. But to Lori, Blackwater is a sacred place, a crossroads of old southern, African, and French spirituality to be celebrated, not feared. In fact, it’s just the sort of environment to help free Abby from the memory of witnessing her boyfriend’s murder. 

And from the guilt of having killed him. 

In 1985 three friends will embark on a weekend getaway that will change their lives forever. 

“Duza and Simmons have succeeded WILDLY in re-creating a classic horror flick from the ’80s – on the page! And if anyone knows about ’80s horror… it’s me.” Steve Johnson (Special FX Legend: THE HOWLING, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, GHOSTBUSTERS)
