Welcome to www.lastoftheliving.net - the official website of David Moody's AUTUMN living dead series.
A vicious, virulent disease destroys more than 99% of the world's population in a single day. Before the handful of survivors that
remain can even begin to come to terms with what has happened, the disease strikes again, and all hell breaks loose.
Five novels, a companion collection, a movie, an audio adaptation and more than 100,000 words of free zombie fiction!
"Takes the genre in a fascinating new direction. If John Wyndham was alive and wrote zombie novels, they’d read like this." --Jonathan Maberry, best-selling author of Patient Zero and Rot & Ruin
A brand new zombie story from David Moody

Autumn - The Tandy Man Can
11 May 2014
As the first book in the series Autumn could easily be dismissed as simply a scene setter for bigger things, but that’s not the case here. Moody has built a slow burning apocalypse story that maintains a constant hum of tension and fear throughout. By eschewing many of the usual tropes of the zombie genre he has created something both different and exciting, and this is a series that should only get better as it develops.

Autumn: Aftermath - The Rotting Zombie
06 March 2014
I adore the Autumn books for the reasons that they are great books, well written, and do some really interesting spins on the traditional brain hungry zombie tales. As always if you have not yet read them then they are well worth reading.

Autumn: Disintegration - The Rotting Zombie
23 January 2014
Where the previous books showed what would happen to normal folk in a zombie apocalypse Disintegration shows what people on the lower side of the human spectrum would do. People who appear to have low intelligence, who bicker and fight constantly, but ones who are brave and not afraid to act. It all makes for a far more interesting story, and the best so far in the Autumn series.

Autumn - Ink Pantry
07 November 2013
Should you despair when you reach the end of Autumn, fear not, because this is just the first in a series of five Autumn books, as well as the movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. And I for one am grateful that this is not a ridiculous comedic tale ofShaun of the Dead proportions, but is actually a story of ordinary people running for their lives from an extraordinary situation.

Joe and Me - Elf-Machines from Hyperspace

Well, Moody contrives a story where this choice gets about as complicated as possible. It’s patiently paced, but never once drags, so I had plenty of time to get to know father and son and grow to care about them and worry for their situation. So, when the peril really arrived, I was chewing the inside of my mouth as I read. I honestly did not know which way the choice ought to go, or what I would do if faced with the same situation (I think I do know now). And even though I think the choice that was made was the only human one possible, its consequences are suitably dire.

Autumn - Wayne Simmons
24 September 2012
‘Autumn’ is one of the finest novels in the apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic genre. Ever.
Autumn - 20four12
07 September 2012
Just because these zombies don’t seem threatening in the beginning (when they’re blind, dumb and lumbering around aimlessly) doesn’t mean that the world of Autumn isn’t terrifying—because it most definitely is.
Autumn - The Evil Eye
06 September 2012
To conclude...This book began well...maintained, indeed, accelerated interest throughout...and provided a powerful ending that left this particular reader not only eager for the next book in the series...but with a bit of a nervous twitch...(always a good sign).

At under 300 pages and very well-written, it will take you no time at all to consume Autumn which starts strong and finishes powerfully; and its not a book that you’re likely to forget and I for one cannot wait to see what the rest of the Autumn series has in store.
