THE BEST OF TOMES OF THE DEAD, VOLUME 1

Released 11 November 2010

By Rebecca Levene, Matt Smith, Al Ewing

THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE STARTS HERE...

The masters of flesh-munchingly, gut-wrenchingly, eyeball-poppingly great zombie fiction bring you three of the best books from the first years of the critically-acclaimed Tomes of the Dead line.

The Words of their Roaring

In a London overrun by the zombie hordes, former thief Gabe O’Connell’s loyalty to his employer Harry Flowers is challenged when a routine job goes south and he uncovers the full extent of the gang lord’s plans for the city.

“The world of horror fiction may have just found its equivalent to Tarantino.” - Whispers of Wickedness Magazine

I, Zombie

John Doe has been dead for ten years. If the price is right, he’ll kill for you, steal for you, or save your life for you. There’s no mystery you can’t hire him to solve... except for the secret behind his own existence. A secret that could end all life on Earth.

“Right from the bullet-soaked opening up until the downbeat ending, Ewing keeps things moving so fast that I literally couldn’t stop and get off.” - Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review

Anno Mortis

Beautiful and deadly, the gladiator Boda is brought to Rome in the reign of Caligula, where she uncovers a plot to breach the barrier between life and death. For all that she hates her captors and their decadent city, she may be the empire’s only hope.

“It’s the sort of book for which the term ‘romp’ or the phrase ‘rip-roaring adventure’ was coined.” - Nostalgia for Infinity
