Many copies of THE LAST BIG THING are now winging their way around the world. Thanks to everyone for your patience.
The other day a reader sent me a volley of abuse and called me a wanker because they didn’t like the end of TRUST. Oh well, you can’t please everyone! I was a lot happier with PUBLISHERS WEEKLY’s review of ALL ROADS END HERE. Warning – slight spoilers for ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING and the new book follow…
Good news – all the orders which have so far been placed for signed first edition hardcover copies of ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING have now been dispatched.
Bad news – following a couple of orders received this afternoon, we’re now out of stock of the new book. Here’s a photo of the current state of the shelves I showed you in my last post. Note the (almost) total absence of ONE OF US…
Good news – you can still order signed copies of the book direct from www.infectedbooks.co.uk. A new order will be placed with the publisher in the coming days, and all back orders will be dispatched as soon as they arrive. You can also order (unsigned) copies of the book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, The Book Depository, Indiebound and all other good bookstores ahead of the official release in just over a week’s time.
It’s two weeks until the official release but, as you can see from the picture below, I’ve just taken delivery of the first shipments of ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING – the new HATER
Official release isn’t until 5 December, but it’s not too late if you want to grab a piece of the pre-release action. Signed first edition hardcovers are available to order here. There’s free shipping for UK orders, and if you don’t use Paypal, you can now pay via Amazon.

First reviews are coming in for the new HATER
The new trilogy has its roots in some of the many movie-related discussions I’ve had about the books over the years. On numerous occasions, producer Ed Barratt and I have talked about TV adaptations (and we came tantalisingly close to getting that off the ground at the turn of this year but, as is so often the way, our plans unravelled at the last moment). Ed and I discussed the issues we’d face trying to translate HATER
One of the recurring themes of the series is ‘who is the bad guy?’. When the outbreak (or whatever it is) begins in HATER
So that got me thinking, are the Unchanged as innocent as I initially thought? Are the Haters as evil and ferocious as they appear? Do the lines ever blur? Are there weaker Haters and stronger Unchanged? How clear is the distinction between the two?
Okay, so we’re cynically jumping on the bandwagon here, but why not? All we’re trying to do is spread a little doom and gloom this coming holiday season… Not content with Black Friday, we’re having a whole Black Christmas!
Loads of signed books, plenty of discounts. Free shipping in the UK. The sale also includes Wayne Simmons and Andre Duza’s recently released VOODOO CHILD, which Starburst Magazine gave a superb 8/10 to in their review this week.
I know it’s probably the wrong side of Christmas to be telling you this, but there are a few other interesting things available at Infected Books right now. There’s a copy of the rare and very limited hardcover edition of TRUST, and copies of my last zombie-release LAST OF THE LIVING. If you use the exclusive This is Horror discount code, you can also get the limited hardcover of AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION for the ridiculously low price of £10 (with free delivery if you’re in the UK).
You can find the This is Horror discount code on the JOE & ME free download page. This seems like an ideal opportunity to mention that I’ll be taking part in a live This is Horror podcast in February. If you have any questions, email them to the address on the download page.
