Zombie legend releases his last word on the living dead
British cult horror author David Moody, writer of the best-selling Autumn and Hater books, announces the release of LAST OF THE LIVING - his final word on all things zombie.
LAST OF THE LIVING (published by Infected Books) brings together two of Moody's acclaimed ebook novellas in print for the first time. THE COST OF LIVING tells the story of a family besieged by the dead. Having stockpiled in readiness for this fateful day, the long the crisis continues, the more uncomfortable questions they're forced to ask. How long is too long? When does survival stop being just about staying alive, and start being about living? In ISOLATION, a novella based upon an original screenplay by Moody, a twenty-something nobody finds himself liberated from the monotony of his humdrum existence by the zombie apocalypse. As the rest of the world lies dead at his feet, Keith goes from zero to unlikely hero.
Accompanying these novellas are a series of zombie short stories, including WHO WE USED TO BE which turns the whole undead mythos on its head, and TIGHTROPES, a story of love and betrayal in a world that's just about managing to cope with the growing zombie menace.

“In his evocation of fear and unease and the speed with which he grips you, he brings to mind old Brit horror writer James Herbert. And that is some recommendation.”
“Moody has the power to make the most mundane and ordinary characters interesting and believable, and is reminiscent of Stephen King at his finest.” —Shadowlocked
"Moody is as imaginative as Barker, as compulsory as King, and as addictive as Palahniuk." —Scream the Horror Magazine
