About the Author

Paul Tremblay is the author of the weird-boiled novels The Little Sleep and No Sleep Till Wonderland, and the short story collection In the Mean Time. His short fiction has appeared in Weird Tales and Real Unreal: Best American Fantasy, Volume 3.

Reviews

"A cinematic scope, scenarios grounded in the real world, and a breathless pace make this thriller one of the must-read titles of the summer. A prescient, insidious horror novel that takes sheer terror to a whole new level."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Tremblay has earned worldwide acclaim because he is able to seamlessly combine reality with speculative elements, and his newest may be his most prescient yet. . . . Gorgeously written about terrible things, the relatively short Survivor Song is a good choice for fans of pandemic epics . . . and novels that probe themes of friendship, family, and social commentary amidst chillingly realistic horror."--Booklist (starred review)
"Intensely gripping, shocking, and raw, Survivor Song is a visceral ride through a couple of hours of a deadly disease outbreak. Tremblay pulls no punches, but you wouldn't want him to--his characters are real people, and it's the brutal honesty that helps this terrifying song soar."--Tim Lebbon, author of Eden
"In Survivor Song, Paul Tremblay offers an unsettling journey across New England as two women, one a doctor, the other her pregnant best friend, try to outrun a rabies-like virus. It's both an achingly lovely exploration of female friendship and a terrifying race against time. I was fighting tears and gasping out loud and couldn't put it down."--Damien Angelica Walters, author of The Dead Girls Club
"Packed full of emotion and suspense, Survivor Song is so gripping it may as well have been glued to my hands. Paul Tremblay is a master of modern horror."--Alison Littlewood, author of The Crow Garden
"For the past few years, Paul Tremblay has been setting the standard for modern horror. His genius is that he never forgets the core of a great horror novel resides first in its characters. In Survivor Song, he revitalizes the zombie novel by keeping the focus narrow and intimate: two women, in the space of a few hours, just trying to get across town. The result is heartfelt and terrifying, in a narrative that moves like a bullet train."--Nathan Ballingrud, author of North American Lake Monsters and Wounds
"Brutality spreads in this novel as swiftly as the wild epidemic Tremblay has invented. A daring, terrifying work packed with horror, but also with larger questions about what meaningful survival might be."--Idra Novey, author of Those Who Knew
"[F]resh and surprising. Survivor Song may be one of Tremblay's best - beautifully detailed, viscerally frightening, and deep with emotional resonance."--Dan Chaon, New York Times bestselling author of Ill Will
"Survivor Song is a breathlessly compelling read, powerfully frightening and very moving - a nightmare that rings all too terribly true."--Ramsey Campbell, author of The Wise Friend
"The vividly drawn characters of Ramola and Natalie give the story an uncommon emotional intensity. This is genuinely hard to put down."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
