GEORGE A. ROMERO's classic zombie movie cycle begins with the groundbreaking Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, which are followed by four sequels. Romero directed two Stephen King projects, Creepshow and The Dark Half, and created the TV series Tales From the Darkside. Originally from New York City, Romero attended Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh. He and his wife, Suzanne, lived in Toronto for over 10 years. George A. Romero died in 2017.DANIEL KRAUS co-authored the New York Times bestselling The Shape of Water with Guillermo del Toro, based on the idea the two created for the Academy Award-winning film. Their earlier collaboration, Trollhunters, was adapted into an Emmy Award-winning Netflix series. Kraus's novel The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch was named one of Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Books of the Year, and his novel Rotters was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award. Kraus lives with his wife in Chicago.
"The Living Dead is a sprawling, timely, scary epic that honors the zombie tradition but also goes in new directions and takes risks that pay off."--Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Survivor Song"If Night of the Living Dead was the first word in the dead rising field, The Living Dead is the last word. A monumental achievement."--Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual "Like a lost Romero classic, which will play out on the inside of your skull long after you've finished it."--Clive Barker "A work of gory genius marked by all of Romero's trademark wit, humanity, and merciless social observations. How lucky are we to have this final act of Grand Guignol from the man who made the dead walk?"--Joe Hill, New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman "Every zombie movie lives in the shadow of Romero, but he never got the budget to work at the scale he deserved. Fortunately, Daniel Kraus delivers the epic book of the dead that Romero began. That shadow just got a whole lot bigger."--Grady Hendrix, author of My Best Friend's Exorcism [A] phenomenally enrapturing and reverberating work of art. Vividly illuminates the minds of the characters."--Booklist on The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus
