Marc, thanks for starting this thread. I appreciate it, and your kind words. I haven't been online nearly as much as I should these last few weeks. I just got promoted at my day job and the new position is keeping me crazy busy. I did, however, write a reader's guide to the entire Dead World series. It covers Dead City, Apocalypse of the Dead, and the various short stories and novellas that make up the series, plus the two novels that will be released next year. Here's a link to the guide:http://joemckinney.wordpress.com/a-readers-guide-to-dead-world/
I get a lot of emails from folks wanting to know about one aspect or another of Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead, and I tried to answer as many of those questions as I could without making any significant spoilers. If you're curious about where the series has been, or where it is going, I encourage you to take a look. And if you've got any specific questions I didn't answer in the guide, ask me in the comments section. I won't worry about spoilers there.
Also, if there are any reviewers out there, and you'd be interested in reading a copy of Apocalypse of the Dead or Dead City for review on your website, let me know at email@example.com
and I'll get you set up with a review copy from the publisher.
