I’ll keep this short and to the point. My new novel – STRANGERS – will be released on 1 December. Pre-orders are open now. Order a signed copy from Infected Books, and you’ll receive a link to download a complementary ebook copy TODAY. (Both Kindle and ePub – Nook, iBook, Kobo – versions are included). Click here to order.
Cover art is by the always excellent CRAIG PATON.
UPDATE: It seems the system we had in place to provide automatic ebook downloads hasn’t worked. If you’ve not received your ebook, it’ll be emailed to you within the next 24 hours. Apologies.
Then make sure you come back here early next week. That’s all I’m saying for now.
Happy Halloween. Hope you all have a great weekend!
I know I’ve been banging on about it for weeks, but LAST OF THE LIVING is officially released today. Containing two novellas and a host of zombie short stories, it’s my last word (for a while, anyway) on the living dead.
Pick up a signed copy direct from Infected Books, ebay, or Amazon.co.uk (free shipping for all UK orders from Infected Books and ebay).
You can also get the book from: AMAZON.COM / AMAZON.CO.UK / B&N / Waterstones / Book Depository

I’m very pleased to announce that the winner of the LAST OF THE LIVING competition is the one and only Aaron Rayner. Aaron’s name was selected randomly from all the folks who’d ordered the new book over the last few weeks. Thanks to everyone who did.
I’m really pleased that Aaron won. Some of you will recognise the name (he’s one of Moody’s Survivors). He’s also one of the most vocal supporters of my work and has attended events in places as far apart as Manchester, Lowestoft, Leicester and London over the years. He’s a good man with a lovely family. Congratulations, Aaron, and thanks!
You can still order signed copies of LAST OF THE LIVING (though initial stocks are running frighteningly low). Head over to www.infectedbooks.co.uk to find out more.
A friendly reminder… You only have until midnight Monday to enter the LAST OF THE LIVING competition where the prize is an original AUTUMN manuscript from 1997. Simply order LAST OF THE LIVING directly from Infected Books to enter (and please be quick… initial supplies are starting to run very low). There’s free and immediate shipping in the UK, and you can get a £2 discount if you enter the name of Keith’s (from ISOLATION) manager at the checkout. The winner of the manuscript (and other prizes) will be announced early next week. Until then, have a great weekend!
Way ahead of schedule (a first for me!) I’ve taken delivery of a massive pile of copies of LAST OF THE LIVING. Pre-orders will start shipping this weekend. You can still pre-order and enter the competition to win a few incredibly rare pieces of AUTUMN history (see this post), as long as your order is placed via the Infected Books website before 20 October. All the details you need can be found by clicking here or on the image below.
The book is also now available to pre-order via Amazon and other outlets. Here are some handy links: AMAZON.COM / AMAZON.CO.UK / B&N / Waterstones
But why wait? Get your hands on a signed copy NOW! Just click here…
Hope you enjoy the book. Have a great weekend.
Just a few weeks now until the release of LAST OF THE LIVING – the new paperback collection which includes my zombie survival novellas THE COST OF LIVING and ISOLATION and much more. In readiness for the new release, the price of the ebook edition of THE COST OF LIVING has been reduced to around 99c/70p – an absolute steal. More information at this link.
In keeping with the Infected Books approach to ebooks, if you’ve already bought THE COST OF LIVING and ISOLATION, you can get a £2 discount on LAST OF THE LIVING (use the name of Keith’s manager as a discount code during checkout). Likewise, when you receive LAST OF THE LIVING, you’ll be able to download complementary copies of the ebooks.
I’m hoping the LAST OF THE LIVING signed pre-orders will start shipping later this week, and I’ll update here again as soon as they do. In the meantime, don’t forget you can pre-order copies here, and that everyone who pre-orders by 20 October will be entered into a draw to win an original AUTUMN manuscript and other rare memorabilia. Good luck!
Thanks to those of you who’ve already pre-ordered LAST OF THE LIVING. I wanted to try and tempt a few more of you in…
I mentioned in my last post that everyone who pre-orders will be entered into a draw to win an original AUTUMN manuscript. This is a truly one-of-a-kind prize, and I thought I’d give you a better look at what’s up for grabs.
In my introduction to the new paperback, I talk about hunting through my notes and finding drafts of AUTUMN from as far back as 1997. This is that draft: 400 pages of yellowing A4 paper. The writing’s clunky and rough as hell, and the book needed many more drafts and severe editing before I released it into the wild in 2001, but it’s still recognisably AUTUMN.
Along with the manuscript, I’m also throwing in a one-off ‘Spread the Infection’ T-shirt (who’s been here long enough to remember theinfected.co.uk?), and a rare copy of the original Infected Books release of AUTUMN. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning all of this is pre-order LAST OF THE LIVING before 20 October.
Click here to do so!
I’m pleased to announce that pre-orders for LAST OF THE LIVING are now open. The book will be officially released on 27 October, but these signed, pre-ordered copies will ship in advance of that date.
All pre-orders received before 20 October will be entered into a competition to win a rare copy of the original Infected Books edition of AUTUMN, along with a genuine (and ever rarer) AUTUMN manuscript from my archives.
Click here to place your order!
One more thing… in keeping with the Infected Books philosophy of not wanting folks to pay for the same thing twice, if you’ve already purchased the COST OF LIVING and ISOLATION ebooks, you can get a £2 discount on your pre-order. Simply use the name of Keith’s (from Isolation) manager as a coupon code at checkout (not case sensitive), and your discount will automatically be applied.
I hope you enjoy LAST OF THE LIVING. As always, don’t hesitate to shout if you have any questions or if you experience any problems placing your order.
Many of you have been asking if THE COST OF LIVING and ISOLATION will ever appear in print. The short answer is yes.
I’m really pleased to be able to announce the imminent launch of LAST OF THE LIVING – a paperback collection bringing together the two novellas and associated short stories (i.e. the short story and flash fiction versions of THE COST OF LIVING, as well as WHO WE USED TO BE, TIGHTROPES, MURIEL and WISH I WAS HERE).
Pre-orders will open next week.
