What does a vampire eat during the zombie apocalypse?

Coburn has a problem – he’s just woken up from a five year sleep to find that human civilisation has fallen in the face of the zombie apocalypse. He likes blood. They like brains. So, yeah – problem.

And now he’s starving. So this vampire not only has to find human survivors but must become an unlikely shepherd with a shotgun. After all, a man has to look after his food supply...

A thrilling chase across a zombie-infested America – but with a twist – Double Dead is Chuck Wendig’s fantastically entertaining, blood-thirsty, brain-guzzling debut novel.

As part of Abaddon’s READ ANYTHING campaign, a free preview of chapter one of Double Dead is available for download! Check out the epub version, the Kindle version or the .pdf version now, for free!

“A bloodthirsty ride through zombie-infested Route 66. Chuck Wendig gives horror fans EXACTLY what they need in this slick, cross-genre romp.”
– Wayne Simmons, author of the best-selling Flu and Drop Dead Gorgeous

About the Series

Rotten bone and raddled flesh, shuffling perils and moaning menaces – Tomes of the Dead reimagines the zombie genre not as an endless retread of the same tired themes, but as a prism crack’d, exploring the gut-churning, flesh-biting world of the shambling dead from a new, different and unexpected direction every time – from Roman zombies to zombie gumshoes and zombie romance to ... hell, if you haven’t seen a Romanian Elvis impersonator squaring off against a green-glowing space zombie, then Tomes of the Dead will be a terrifying, fresh-from-the-grave revelation.

One of the three series with which Abaddon Books launched in 2006, Tomes of the Dead is a collection of stand-alone novels that has showcased the talents of a number of brilliant, up-and-coming British and American authors, including Gary McMahon, Al Ewing, Simon Bestwick and Weston Ochse. Double Dead is the thirteenth Tomes of the Dead title.
