Summer of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: John O’Brien


What is your latest zombie release?

My last one was A New World: Storm, but Mark Tufo and I have the second book in our collaboration series, A Shrouded World: Atlantis, coming out soon. It’s with the editor at the moment and should be published close to the beginning of June. I also am finishing up with a second book of short stories based on A New World which should be published toward the middle of June.

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

A vengeful darkness…

Gathers in the night…

One threat has been destroyed – another grows stronger.

Even though Jack and the teams have won a major confrontation, their lives still hang by a thread. There are decisions to be made, and ones that have never been more critical.

Leonard continues to try to keep his crew together after being hit by another soul-shattering blow. They’ve only recently become aware of this new world, and it doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon as they silently plunge through the Pacific, looking for answers Leonard knows they may never find.

Michael knows he can no longer stand idle and wait as he feels thousands of his kind disappear from his mind night after night. The weight of the survival of his kind weighs heavily on his shoulders and he pushes forward to end the threats to their existence.

The new world must find its balance…

And the scales are about to tip…

Something unique about it.

The night runners are faster, more agile, cunning, and vastly outnumber the remaining survivors. Genetic alterations have brought about the ability to hear better, smell any scent with the precision of a canine, and can see in the dark. They communicate with each other with a form of telepathy and, to the detriment of those surviving, they are evolving.
