Brain-Eating Britain

In these grim days, Britain has become overrun with a new menace. Violent, unmoved by compassion, shuffling heedlessly from one victim to the next, flooding the estates and terrorising the streets. Yes, it’s zombies…

Abaddon Books presents three of their finest Tomes of the Dead books, offering up bone-crunching, blood-chilling stories of survival horror in contemporary Britain.

In Hungry Hearts, Rik Nutman races to rescue his wife from being murdered… and then from being murdered again. In Tide of Souls, three very different people are thrown together by the rising flood – and the hordes of the dead – to uncover a deep secret about the world. And in The Words of Their Roaring, small-time thief Gabe learns just how far he will go to make a living when the zombie apocalypse destroys society.
