News: Book Cover: Zom-B by Darren Shan

Edit: Review now added at:

Back in October I posted a press release I received from Simon and Schuster regarding their announcement that Darren Shan had signed with them to produce a new series of books titled Zom-B. The first book in this series is scheduled to be launched on 27th September, and the further 11 books in the series will then be released one every three months until 2015. Today S&S revealed the cover of Zom-B at the London book fair, and now they want to share it with world. The cover was designed by Nick Stearn, aided and abetted by illustrator Cliff Nielson and I love it. I think we are being left in no doubt at all as to what these books will be about! Just imagine those fingernails tearing into your throat!!


  1. Ha! This comes out in the US in October and I have Zom-B Underground on a list as coming out in January! I'm contacting Little, Brown right away to see about ARCs. Whew. For a minute there I thought I might have to move to the UK. Darren Shan writing about zombies--- it does NOT get any better than that!

  2. Wow, amazing...i met him in march, and he read an excerpt of it :D cannot WAIT :D

  3. I went to see him in Windsor a couple of years ago and he was really good. I am currently counting down the days until the 17th May as I have been invited to meet him and talk to him about the Zom-B series.
