I get a lot of emails, and a lot of them ask the same things. Rather than have to wait for ages to get an answer from me (it’s like getting blood out of a stone sometimes) I’ve set up this page to answer the most common questions I get.

Where’s the free download?

Following the acquisition of the AUTUMN series by Thomas Dunne Books, the free download of AUTUMN was discontinued. Hey… don’t shout at me – it was available for more than 5 years and in excess of half a million people downloaded it!

Updated: 2 February 2009


AUTUMN: ECHOES was a collection of brief stories which explained the background of some of the supporting characters from the AUTUMN novels. They also formed a part of THE HUMAN CONDITION (see earlier answer). These stories and more are available free online at www.lastoftheliving.net.

Updated: 20 May 2012

Will there be audio adaptations of the books?

AUTUMN: DAWN is available now, and the other books in THE LONDON TRILOGY will follow in due course. I’m working to try and get audiobooks of the original series produced. You can still listen to Darker Projects excellent free dramatization of the first AUTUMN book. Click here to listen.

What is THE FRONT, and what part did you write?

THE FRONT is a World War II zombie series conceived by Timothy W. Long and Craig DiLouie. I wrote the second book in the series, RED DEVILS.

Updated: 15 February 2017

Will you blurb/critique/edit my book for me?

Sorry, no. I refuse to blurb or critique anything without reading the whole piece of work, and I just don’t have the time to do that right now. Please don’t email your work to me at this moment in time. Thanks. If the position changes in future, I’ll update this answer.

What’s happening with ISOLATION?

ISOLATION has stalled. Unfortunately, as is often the way with these labour of love projects (i.e. projects where there’s no cash involved and everyone’s working for free), they have to take second place to other contractual obligations. And there are too many contractual obligations right now… You can, however, read a novella adaptation of the original screenplay which is now available as part of LAST OF THE LIVING.

Updated: 28 September 2014

Can I get THE COST OF LIVING and ISOLATION in print?

Yes. Both novellas (and all of their associated short stories) are available in a paperback collection called LAST OF THE LIVING. Click here for more information.
