A top tier zombie anthology.
This is one of those books that leaves you with the nagging question, “Could I have done anything different? If the shit hit the fan, could I survive?”

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.
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.
The limited edition of AUTUMN: AFTERMATH (published by Infected Books in collaboration with Gollancz) is now available. Click here to read more from David Moody.

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.
The limited edition Infected Books/Gollancz hardcover of AUTUMN: AFTERMATH is now available to pre-order. Order before 10th January and your name will appear in the book.
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.
David Moody is my all time favourite zombie author.
It may tax the soul to face the profound horrors of humanity, but there’s no one better than Moody to guide us into the wasteland.

David Moody has announced the publication of a definitive, expanded version of AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION - the final word in the AUTUMN series.
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.

With the end of the series fast approaching, author David Moody takes a look back at each part of AUTUMN, beginning with the first novel.
‘Autumn’ is one of the finest novels in the apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic genre. Ever.
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.
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).
In short, my advice to genre fans is simple. Get involved with the Autumn series as soon as possible. You won’t regret it.
Moody has come to be known by many who love the zombie book genre as the go-to author for the new generation of zombie book classics.
David Moody posted the following announcement on his website today:
Another excellent novel in a fantastic series and a must for any Zombie fans.
David Moody is the bard of zombie apocalyptic stories.
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.
British horror at its absolute best.
A fine study of the human race's chances in a post-post-apocalyptic world.
