I’m pleased, chuffed, excited and all-over tingly to announce the release of The Dead Files, Vol. 2.
There’ve been some changes in the way we do things since Vol. 1. We are all about progress and constant improvement and aiming for the head.
So. Vol. 2 is twice the size of our launch volume for the same price. It includes stories from old friends like zombie Irish girl L.A. Hamilton and heavy metal monster Bart Sycamore, a new tale of the undead messiah from Jethro Jessop and a move to prose with a haunting tale from Anna Fruen. New additions to the squad David Heyman and James Hovey keep the quality high. The paperback looks great, and I’m happy to sign any and all volumes that come my way.
As for yr. humble author–yes, I’m in there too. I’m returning to the world of Aiken Ward, with a cliff-hanging multi-part story that should have you begging to be finished off. Hang on, that came out wrong. You know what I mean.
It’s been a real head-rush putting this one together, and the formation of an editorial team gives this and future editions both structure and the knowledge that we’re in this for the long run. Really, we want The Dead Files to get better with every new edition, and we want you there with us.
Much as I hate to push this one aside before it’s been on sale for more than 24 hours, I’d like to mention Vol. 3, which will be our Christmas Special. Submissions for this are open now until the end of November. We’re looking for Xmas themed stories, with a hard limit of 2000 words. If you’re interested, drop me a comment in the first instance, or email Sarge directly. No zombie Jesus tales, thanks. We’ve already got that covered.
For now, please to be enjoying The Dead Files Vol. 2. We think it’s the start of something big, and we hope you agree.
You can buy The Dead Files Vol. 2 from the UKZDL site in epub, Kindle, PDF and woodpulp versions.
