Pirates, cannibals, smugglers, and robber barons clash in the South Pacific in one of the goriest novels ever written.
The Ghoul Archipelago, Stephen Kozeniewski, October 11, 2013, Severed Press
After ravenous corpses topple society and consume most of the world’s population, freighter captain Henk Martigan is shocked to receive a distress call. Eighty survivors beg him to whisk them away to the relative safety of the South Pacific. Martigan wants to help, but to rescue anyone he must first pass through the nightmare backwater of the Curien island chain.
A power struggle is brewing in the Curiens. On one side, the billionaire inventor of the mind-control collar seeks to squeeze all the profit he can out of the apocalypse. Opposing him is the charismatic leader of a ghoul-worshipping cargo cult. When a lunatic warlord berths an aircraft carrier off the coast and stakes his own claim on the islands, the stage is set for a bloody showdown.
To save the remnants of humanity (and himself), Captain Martigan must defeat all three of his ruthless new foes and brave the gruesome horrors of... The Ghoul Archipelago.
"Just when you think you've seen it all, he thrusts another scream-inducing, lunch-losing piece of madness in your face."
- Mary Fan, author of the Jane Colt and Flynn Nightsider books
"Add in an aircraft carrier, some hard core blood and gore plus a quite wry style of writing then you get a punchy and dark sci-fi horror with some amazing set-piece battles!"
- Sean T. Page, UK Minister of Zombies and author of The Official Zombie Handbook
Stephen Kozeniewski lives with his wife and two cats in Pennsylvania, the birthplace of the modern zombie. During his time as a Field Artillery officer, he served for three years in Oklahoma and one in Iraq, where due to what he assumes was a clerical error, he was awarded the Bronze Star. He is also a classically trained linguist, which sounds much more impressive than saying his bachelor's degree is in German.
