Popular and prolific bestselling local author and generous writing instructor Jonathan Maberry returns to the Galaxy with a novel set in a new-to-him universe, and a collection of short stories set in his Rot & Ruin zombie apocalypse wasteland. The RPG Deadlands presents a horrific journey into the “Weird West.” Beings called the Reckoners and a mysterious super-fuel called “ghost rock” have given life to monsters and magic, causing history to divert from July 4th, 1863, forward. In Ghostwalkers, a gun-for-hire battles the recently undead, including some by his own hand. Bits & Pieces includes stories of battles against the undead, with previously published shorts, all new tales from Nix’s journals, and the comic book script.
Twenty-two short stories, eleven of which were previously published, based on the Rot & Ruin series in which fifteen-year-old Benny Imura and his friends fight a zombie plague in a post-apocalyptic America. Includes a related comic book script.
