The debut novel from George A. Romero, the legendary director of Night of the Living Dead. Since the release of Romero's iconic film in 1968, Romero's fans have been waiting for the definitive zombie novel from the greatest living authority on the rise of the modern-day zombie. All horror fans have been eagerly awaiting the full story behind the living dead: how they came to be, what they can and cannot do, and their initial impact on the world of the living - our world! Finally in this epic, debut novel Romero will reveal all. In San Diego, an autopsy seems routine until the corpse sits up and begins to walk - after all his organs have been removed. Suddenly the rules of the world have been rewritten and the dead now walk the earth. In Atlanta, a reporter covers the epidemic, showing viewers glimpses of increasing chaos from around the globe. Nowhere, it seems, is safe. THE LIVING DEAD follows different groups of people as they react to the crisis, working together and, for some, using their limited knowledge of zombies to try to survive. The only question is whether survival is possible, and more importantly, desirable.
