From Flu to Fever

8 12 2011

Wayne SimmonsGood news continues to come in for Wayne Simmons fans, in addition to the special edition books announced last week; we now have exciting news about brand new releases from the zombie master.

Wayne has announced that Fever, the follow up to his excellent tome Flu, will be available in February 2012 and a full launch is expected to take place at Cardiff Comic Expo 2012.

Fellow zombie scribe David Moody has provided the cover blurb for Fever and said “Fever wears its reanimated heart proudly on its sleeve. Simmons builds on the nightmare world he created in Flu and manages to make it even more horrific and diseased. A sequel which surpasses the original.”

In addition, Wayne has announced that Doll Parts, a book on hold since 2009 and the long-awaited sequel to Drop Dead Gorgeous, will be released in March 2012.

If that isn’t enough for Wayne’s fans, he is also pleased to announce that Morpheus Tales have published his story from the Flu world, Mary’s Boy Child in their special Christmas issue which is available to download for free now.

Meet The Writer: Wayne Simmons

What first attracted you to horror writing?

Like most horror writers out there, I started out as a horror fan. I remember, as a kid, staying up late to watch the old Hammer House of Horror films and falling quickly in love with the genre.

About five or six years ago, I started writing for a few online mags, interviewing folks like Bowie Ibarra, David Moody and Andre Duza. Their writing really appealed to me, but I also found them to be really cool guys and very approachable. Dave, in particular, was very supportive of my first dabbles in fiction writing.
