George Romero to Write Debut Zombie Novel

Guardian.UK has just reported that the Godfather of the modern zombie, George Romero, has (allegedly) been given a $300,000 advance to write his debut zombie novel and follow-up. Reportedly titled, The Living Dead, the book will tell "the origin of the zombie realm".

Publisher, Headline, reports that the upcoming novel will tell "the full story behind the living dead: how they came to be [and] what they can and cannot do". The epidemic begins in San Diego with a corpse rising during an autopsy. At the same time, a reporter from Atlanta tells of "increasing chaos around the globe".

I'm up to my neck with books to read but would definitely add this one to my list!
While we're on the subject of Mr. Romero, head over to ShockTillYouDrop for an exclusive interview. No mention of the book, but still worth a read.
