``Mother, isn't there something you want me to do?''

``Nothing, I believe, Frank.''

``Before you die, mother!'' echoed Frank, in a startled voice.

``Yes. Frank, I am beginning to think that this is my last sickness.''

Author of the Day

WJ Lundy
As a still-serving military veteran, WJ Lundy has over 15 years of combined service with the Army and Navy in Europe, the Balkans and Southwest Asia. He is also the author of the very successful WTF series, in which Lundy applies his military experience to paint action-packed, realistic scenes in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies roam the lands. Today, Lundy chats with us about his Escape omnibus, how he wrote his first novel in a notebook in Afghanistan and why his zombies are scarier than most.
