A new zombie novella from David Moody

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

Autumn - Justin's Corner

03 May 2017
All in all, I HIGHLY suggest any fan of the fiction realm of reading, to go to your library, order it off Amazon, or however you can read this book, to read it. I assure you, if you are a fan of ficitional horror, that you will be pulled in to this vast realm of survival, trust, un-likely friendships, and of course, zombies.

Another series by Moody I became totally captivated by and have ultimately read the entire series and believe me when I say this, it’s one not to be missed.

Autumn: The Human Condition - The Rotting Zombie

03 October 2014

A top tier zombie anthology.

Autumn - 2BookLoversReviews

02 October 2014

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?”

A brand new zombie story from David Moody

07 June 2014

David Moody announces the release of THE COST OF LIVING - a brand new zombie novella.

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: Aftermath limited edition now available

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.

Autumn - The Rotting Zombie

06 November 2013

David Moody is my all time favourite zombie author.

Joe and Me - ChiZine

28 October 2013

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.

Joe and Me - Elf-Machines from Hyperspace

14 March 2013

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).

Autumn: Purification - Andy Erupts

16 August 2012

In short, my advice to genre fans is simple. Get involved with the Autumn series as soon as possible. You won’t regret it.

30 April 2012

Another excellent novel in a fantastic series and a must for any Zombie fans.

Autumn: Aftermath - Gil T's Pleasures

25 April 2012

David Moody is the bard of zombie apocalyptic stories.

Autumn - Andyerupts.com

22 April 2012

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.

Autumn: Aftermath - Starburst Magazine

05 March 2012

British horror at its absolute best.

Autumn: Aftermath - Kirkus Reviews

01 March 2012

A fine study of the human race's chances in a post-post-apocalyptic world.
