Q: WHAT COULD BE WORSE THAN SPENDING VALENTINE’S DAY ALONE? A: SPENDING IT WITH EVIL ZOMBIES!! Megan Berry is no stranger to heartbreak, but spending Valentine’s Day serving other happy couples hot dogs while mourning the loss of her one true love is almost more than even a highly trained zombie Settler can handle. So when her recently estranged boyfriend, Ethan, texts her asking her to be his Valentine, she ditches her bodyguard and rushes to his side. But soon, Megan’s dreams of chocolates, flowers, and lingering make-up kisses take a turn of the rotted-corpse-and-maggot variety, and Megan fears that her first Valentine’s Day with Ethan may be her last.

In a sleepy, secluded Alaska town called Barrow, the sun sets and doesn't rise for more than thirty consecutive days and nights from November to December. During this time a few years ago, from the darkness and across the frozen wasteland, an evil that normally preferred to exist in the shadows descended upon Barrow and brought the residents to their knees. Barrow's only hope was Eben and Stella Olemaun, a husband-and-wife law enforcement team who were torn between their own survival and saving the town they loved. Months later, as Stella Olemaun attempts to warn the world about the looming vampire threat by any means necessary, a rogue government agent may be taking more than an active interest in her story. And meanwhile, further north, a new sheriff and his young son must solve the lingering mystery of Barrow, even as the survivors of the original attack prepare for the sun to set once again -- however this time, they're ready. 30 Days Of Night: Rumors Of The Undead is Steve Niles's innovative and eagerly anticipated expansion of a nightmarish narrative that explores the nature of ancient evil existing -- and thriving -- in an unsuspecting modern world.

Jonah Caine, a lone survivor in a zombie-infested world, struggles to understand the apocalypse in which he lives. Unable to find a moral or sane reason for the horror that surrounds him, he is overwhelmed by violence and insignificance. After wandering for months, Jonah's lonely existence dramatically changes when he discovers a group of survivors. Living in a museum-turned-compound, they are led jointly by Jack, an ever-practical and efficient military man, and Milton, a mysterious, quizzical prophet who holds a strange power over the dead. Both leaders share Jonah's anguish over the brutality of their world, as well as his hope for its beauty. Together with others, they build a community that reestablishes an island of order and humanity surrounded by relentless ghouls. But this newfound peace is short-lived, as Jonah and his band of refugees clash with another group of survivors who remind them that the undead are not the only-nor the most grotesque-horrors they must face.

A New Generation Of Explorers Led by a military vet who's seen better days, the inexperienced offspring of the original survivors form a small expedition to explore the wastelands around them. A biologist, an anthropologist, a photographer, a salvage expert--all are hoping to build a new future from the rubble, which they call the "Dead Lands." Until all hell breaks loose. . . A Land Of Death The infected are still out there. Stalking. Feeding. Spreading like a virus. Wild animals roam the countryside, hunting prey. Small pockets of humanity hide in the shadows: some scared, some mad, all dangerous. This is the New World. If the explorers want it, they'll have to take it. Dead or alive. . .

Jojo und seine kleine Schwester Kayla leben bei ihren Großeltern Mam and Pop an der Golfküste von Mississippi. Leonie, ihre Mutter, kümmert sich kaum um sie. Sie nimmt Drogen und arbeitet in einer Bar. Wenn sie high ist, wird Leonie von Visionen ihres toten Bruders heimgesucht, die sie quälen, aber auch trösten. Mam ist unheilbar an Krebs erkrankt, und der stille und verlässliche Pop versucht, den Haushalt aufrecht zu erhalten und Jojo beizubringen, wie man erwachsen wird. Als der weiße Vater von Leonies Kindern aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, packt sie ihre Kinder und eine Freundin ins Auto und fährt zur »Parchment Farm«, dem staatlichen Zuchthaus, um ihn abzuholen. Eine Reise voller Gefahr und Hoffnung. Jesmyn Ward erzählt so berührend wie unsentimental von einer schwarzen Familie in einer von Armut und tief verwurzeltem Rassismus geprägten Gesellschaft. Was bedeuten familiäre Bindungen, wo sind ihre Grenzen? Wie bewahrt man Würde, Liebe und Achtung, wenn man sie nicht erfährt? Singt, ihr Lebenden und ihr Toten, singt ist ein großer Roman, getragen von Wards so besonderer melodischer Sprache, ein zärtliches Familienporträt, eine Geschichte von Hoffnungen und Kämpfen, voller Anspielungen auf das Alte Testament und die Odyssee.

Mark Twain once said "The rumors of my death were greatly exaggerat—BRAINS!!!!!" Pulled from the grip of Mark Twain's rotting zombie hands, is Tom Sawyer like you've never seen him before, in a swashbuckling, treasure-seeking adventure, spiked with blood, gore, and zombie madness. In this expanded and illustrated edition of Mark Twain's beloved tale of boyhood adventures, Tom's usual mishaps are filled with the macabre and take place in a world overrun by a zombie virus that turns people into something folks call "Zum." The United States is infected with a plague of rotting, yet spry, Zum, searching for fresh meat. In this world, there's no need to whitewash Aunt Polly's fence. Instead, Tom cons his friends into sharpening fence posts to lethal points to repel a Zum attack. To escape the boredom of civilized life, Tom and his pal Huckleberry Finn don't have to fake their deaths, just pretend to be Zum. And instead of playing cowboys and Indians, Tom hones his fighting skills in a bloodthirsty game of "Us and Zum." He always wins . . . until he bumps into the real thing. When vicious, self-aware zombies evolve and threaten the town . . . what will Tom and Huck do to protect their loved ones, and will they live to tell the tale? With all the comedy, romance, and adventure that readers expect from Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer now becomes a new breed of hero for a whole new world—a grade-A zombie hunter. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

An einem verschlafenen Sommertag des Jahres 1984 begegnet die junge Holly Sykes einer alten Frau, die ihr im Tausch für «Asyl» einen kleinen Gefallen tut.
