Now Available: KINGS OF THE DEAD (Revised & Expanded) by Tony Faville

Friend of the blog, Tony Faville has joined the roster of fine zombie authors at Permuted Press with the release of his revised and expanded edition of KINGS OF THE DEAD, a journal of survival in the zombie post-apocalypse.

In my review of the novel's first, self-published edition, I noted that zombie fans wondering how they would fare in a zombie apocalypse should read Kings of the Dead. It was and remains fiction by a committed fan of zombie media. Kings of the Dead's new revised and expanded edition not only rocks a fantastic new book cover but also a much tighter, cleaner, and fluent narrative pace.

KINGS OF THE DEAD (Revised and Expanded) is available from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Barnes and Noble, and Best Book Buys.
When the H1N1 “Swine Flu” virus mutates it begins to not only kill those who have received the vaccination, but also bring on the unthinkable: the dead reanimate.

Cole Helman and his friends are not only survival experts, they’ve spent hours discussing and preparing for just this event and quickly head to the hills before the cities become clogged with looting and riots. But the group knows all too well that the living dead are just the beginning of their problems, and they’ll eventually have to deal with the worst qualities of the living—desperation, greed, selfishness, and cruelty—in this new post-apocalyptic world. And a chance encounter at a secret military installation may reveal a conspiracy bigger than any of them had imagined…

Straight out of the apocalypse comes the chronicle of one small group and their experiences with life and death, survival and loss. In a world of the living dead, is one man capable of maintaining not only his community, but his own sanity?

"With Kings of the Dead, Tony Faville blurs the line between our real world and an apocalyptic nightmare world of zombies. And makes that fun. Kings of the Dead is wild and weird, dangerous and delightful!"

--Jonathan Maberry, author of Patient Zero and Rot & Ruin

"For every zombiphile who’s ever imagined how it might go down if the living dead came shambling into their world... they’re here!"

--David Dunwoody, author of Empire and Empire's End
