The War of the Worlds, Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies

Martians have landed and they aren't nice, friendly aliens. The strange creatures are intent on demolishing all human resistance but they aren't the only things threatening all mankind. The spaceships have also brought a plague that turn the dead into flesh-eating zombies. It's a race to see which will destroy the world first!

This is another fun and bloody entry in what can be called re"vamped" classics sweeping the literary world. What classic can't be improved by adding werewolves, vampires, mummies, or in this case, zombies? Eric Brown has done a great job interweaving zombies into H.G. Wells timeless classic. I will be recommending this to anyone who enjoyed "The War of the Worlds", zombie fiction or just a fun read.

Book Blurb for The War of the Worlds, Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies

The invasion begins . . . and the dead start to rise.

There's panic in the streets of London as invaders from Mars wreak havoc on the living, slaying the populace with Heat-Rays and poisonous clouds of black smoke. Humanity struggles to survive against technology far beyond its own, meeting fear and death at every turn.

But that's not the only struggle mankind must face. The dead are rising from their graves with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. Friends, neighbours and loved ones lost to the war of the worlds are now the enemy and the Earth is forever changed.

It's kill or be killed, if you want to survive, otherwise you might become one of the walking dead yourself.
