Two New Zombie Books Out ! Just in time for Halloween

Ok LSOZI fans, those of you that follow the blog for odd survivalism/zombie apocalypse type stuff will be pleased  to know that there are a couple of new books out there this week that *coincidentally* we have a part in!

The first is an anthology of short stories “Zombies?! Zombies!!: An Anthology” edited by Lowell R Torres and published by iUniverse. Inside we have two short stories, “Hokahey” and “The 20th Round“. (link here! )

The second is a collection of excerpts from previously published works by numerous popular authors who share their own visions of how the zombie apocalypse will unfold. It’s an appetizing sampler platter and introduction to the horrific worlds described in their books. Their combined visions offer a compelling, fast paced, ride through apocalyptic possibilities. All profits go to the highly respected medical charity Direct Relief International (www.directrelief.org).

Entitled “Outbreak: Visions of the Apocalypse“, it has a chapter pulled from the second Last Stand on Zombie Island novel. We are thrilled to be mixed in with the likes of Shawn Chesser and David Forsyth in this book from Permuted Press.

WELCOME TO THE END OF THE WORLD!

Disease-K has decimated the world leaving its victims shambling homicidal maniacs. And nestled along the warm Gulf waters sits Gulf Shores…the last outpost of civilization. With looters and thieves preying on the shocked survivors, it’s up to the retirees and bank tellers, phone repairmen and charter-boat captains to put the town back together.

THE SHADOWS ARE GATHERING OUTSIDE OF TOWN!

There, in the sands and marshes of the Gulf of Mexico, the citizens of Gulf Shores along with scattered military units, a downed Air Force pilot, and a lone Coast Guard cutter form the last line of defense against the amassing horde of the infected marching its way toward the sea destroying what is left of humanity along the way.
As summer gives way to the fall and the cold winds blow off the sea, Gulf Shores draws the line and prepares to make the…

THE LAST STAND ON ZOMBIE ISLAND!

The Reviews are Great:

  • “So you think the imminent zombieclypse will be fun and games? Maybe if you’re dealing with slow shamblers, mister, but not in the scenario envisioned in this rip roaring tale. With a well-explained and plausible sounding explanation for the undead and a lot of attention to detail, it becomes very obvious how completely outclassed survivors would be.”
  • “Last Stand on Zombie Island was good to the last drop…of flesh and blood, that is! Very captivating and entertaining throughout with interesting, relatable characters that will keep you intrigued. The zombies themselves are more amped and determined that your standard shambling zombie and will have you on the edge of your seat. Two thumbs up, 5 stars, a real page turner! “
  • “The description of this novel as being based “upon totally ordinary people” is 100% TRUE. In all the Z stories I have read (lots), I have never before read a story which SO CAPTIVATED ME without the presence of A SINGLE “PURELY HEROIC…LARGER THAN LIFE” personality. There are multiple possible explanations:”
  • “I should warn that the “infected” are NOT Romero Zs: They’re faster, they actively seek out and destroy any element of civilization, they are sick, sexual predators, and they kill in new ways.”
  • “I was frustrated THAT I COULD NOT SPEND ALL MY TIME READING IT! I was captivated to the end. This was a case of a “whole greater than the sum of its parts”. I cannot explain more without revealing spoilers. This is a surprisingly RIVETING STORY–BE WARNED!”
  • “I LOVE Zombie fiction…I don’t know why, but I can’t seem to get enough of it. This novel grabbed me from the very beginning and held me throughout. The premise is plausible and the characters are believable. I also appreciate that it seems to have been professionally edited. Nothing bothers me more than simple grammatical mistakes in a book that I PAY for. This one doesn’t have that deficiency. If you like Zombie fiction, buy or steal this book and enjoy reading it as much as I did.”

Also available as a Trade Paperback and Hardcover from Necro Publications.

Enjoy, and get your shamble on!

Free Zombie Fiction !

Tales of the Zombie War has just published RICK, THE OTHER WHITE MEAT By yours truly on their website.

“The hunter sat with his back against the thick loblolly pine and felt his shoulders dig into the wet bark. The gnat hat, a screen of camouflage mesh, covered his face and neck, but still the little bastards made their way in and attacked his sweaty skin. As they took their blood meal, his only reaction was to blink and will them to hurry it up. He absolutely refused to move. Movement gave you away.

Through the brush behind, he heard the snap of a twig. He remained silent and still, controlling his blinking and the surge of adrenaline that he felt. The rustling in the brush told him that it was the game he was looking for. Time to call it in.

On the top of his left thigh, just above his knee he had sewn one side of a velcro patch. The other side of the patch was glued to the back of his phone and held it in place.  His left hand barely extended its index finger and touched the ’send’button.

Taped to a tree about 40 feet in front of the hunter, a cell phone lit up and started playing the Benny Hill chase music on max volume. After about twenty seconds, the hunter pressed the ‘end’ button on the cell phone on his thigh and the ring tone stopped. The strains of Benny Hill ceased and the cell phone went quiet and dark against the tree.

He craned his ear for any sound that would confirm his call was heard. The sound of an animal crashing through the brush towards the tree came to him. As it grew closer, he could hear the grunts and pants of the charging beast. Just feet away from the tree that held the decoy phone, the zombie stopped dead in its tracks….”

Night Owl Reviews Does Author Interview with me

Night Owl Reviews, one of the biggest names in book reviews, gave me a good opportunity for an interview.

http://nightowlreviewsmagazine.blogspot.com/2012/07/christopher-eger-what-makes-good-zombie.html

What makes a good Zombie?

Ever since Bela Lugosi, equipped with very questionable facial hair, mumbled a few lines about enslaved undead in the 1932 classic film, “White Zombie,” the world has asked themselves just what is a zombie. Tradition has that this most undefined of the monster genre is a former human who has, through some weird metamorphosis, become something very different. So let’s take the zombie test to see what separates these from the rest of the movie monsters.

Test Number 1: The Shamble.

You simply can’t have a good zombie without a good shamble. These lurking, jerking movements, often similar to a 4AM drunk stroll, are the bread and butter of the living dead. Even those movies and books that feature zombies who sprint like an Olympic superstar (aka ‘The Running Dead’) eventually let them slow down to…the Shamble. Let’s face it; have you ever seen a werewolf or vampire get their shamble on? Didn’t think so.

LSOZI Reviewed on Tomes of Darkness

Patrick D’Orazio, Author of “Comes the Dark” and other such amazing zombie works, has just posted

an amazingly detailed review of Last Stand on Zombie Island at his blog, “Tomes of

Darkness”

Among other things he says,

“What sets this story apart from most other zombie apocalypse sagas is the depth of technical detail with which the author provides us with in regards to the military and virtually every other aspect of survival and experimentation done by the island dwellers in their efforts to not only to stay alive but to thrive under duress.  Most importantly, the author did this without bogging the reader down in the minutia that some writers seem quite fond of when they describe weapons, tactics, and combat scenarios in particular.  The author never resorts to providing us with laundry list of weapons or regales us with microscopic details that distract from the human elementof the saga.”

Pat, you are the man.
