David Dunwoody's Empire coming March 16

Last year, Permuted Press and Simon & Schuster announced a zombie merger of epic proportions. Simon & Schuster picked up a handful of well-known Permuted Press titles like J.L. Bourne's Day by Day Armageddon and Z.A. Recht's Plague of the Dead .

Up next for release in the Permuted Press/PocketBooks merger is David Dunwoody's Empire, which is scheduled for release on March 16, 2010. Fans and curious zombie enthusiasts are encouraged to begin placing their pre-orders now, through Amazon.com, as well as local bookstores. Harrisburg zombie fans should visit their local Borders store to place a pre-order, so they are guaranteed to get their hands on a copy of Empire the day it's released.


About the book:
The year is 2112.

The crippled U.S. government and its military forces are giving up the century-long fight against an undead plague. Born of an otherworldly energy fused with a deadly virus, the ravaging hordes of zombified humans and animals have no natural enemies. But they do have one supernatural enemy: Death himself.

Descending upon the ghost town of Jefferson Harbor, Louisiana, the Grim Reaper embarks on a bloody campaign to put down the legions that have defied his touch for so long. He will find allies in the city’s last survivors, and a nemesis in a man who wants to harness the force driving the zombies—a man who seeks to rebuild America into an empire of the dead.

Hailed as “A MACABRE MASTERPIECE OF POST-APOCALYPTIC ZOMBIE GOODNESS” on the Library of the Living Dead podcast, Empire brings stunning new twists to a shattering and unforgettable scenario of the not-too-distant future.


Simon and Schuster currently has an excerpt you can check out online, and online pre-orders can be placed through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and Borders.
