This time last year I speculated that Mira Grant's Feed might be the surprise hit of the summer, having heard such very good things about it on the grapevine. Given that it has been short-listed for this year's Hugo award, I can smugly say I got that one right!
Now Mira Grant - whom you may have encountered in her other guise as the very talented fantasy author Seanan McGuire offers up her follow-up to Feed, consisting of further adventures with zombie and entitled Deadline and it is released by Orbit in B format.
"Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organisation he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn't seem as fun when you've lost as much as he has. But when a researcher from the Centre for Disease Control fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun's relieved to find a new purpose in life. Because this researcher comes bearing news: the monster who attacked them may be destroyed, but the conspiracy is far from dead. Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun."
