Another new feature at Audible.com, this one a month-long “ZombieFest”:
ZombieFest is here. Over the next month we’ll have four exclusive early-release zombie novels — starting with Ex-Patriots by Peter Clines. With each of the four books, you’ll get one of Clines’ interlocked stories from The Junkie Quatrain — written just for zombie fans like you, and available exclusively through Audible. Plus, check out our authors/zombie experts Iain McKinnon, Peter Clines, Craig DiLouie, and Bryon Morrigan providing video answers to your zombie questions below.
Ex-Patriots is the sequel to Ex-Heroes and does seem to fit the bill for being an exclusive early release — Amazon.com doesn’t have a mention of the new novel in print or other formats. At the bottom of the mini-site, 8 author videos discuss zombie topics such as: Tactics, Public Appetite, Provisions, Weaponry, Personnel, Safe Zones, Nautical Tactics, and Stiff Competition.
Also: Might as well use this space for July 6 updates to Audible.com. Not a busy day, but a long (long!) awaited 4th volume in the Gormenghast stories, and a nice new production of Kipling’s Mowgli stories.
- Titus Awakes: Gormenghast, Volume 4 (The Lost Book of Gormenghast) by Maeve Gilmore based on a fragment by Mervyn Peake, narrated by Simon Vance (short)
- The Jungle Book: The Mowgli Stories by Rudyard Kipling narrated by Peter Jeffrey (short)
