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!

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…”
You can grab the book on signed paperback or limited edition hardback by following this link to the IB store. 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. Long and Joe McKinney…
Believe it or not, this mammoth collection is just 99p/ $1.50. More info right here.

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.”
Come on and meet the STRANGERS…
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!”
