Anthology Book ‘Nights of the Living Dead’ Presented by George A. Romero

George A. Romero’s 1968 cult horror zombie classic Night of the Living Dead is to get a new anthology book that is set in the same universe, and during the same timeframe. Titled Nights of the Living Dead, the book will bring together the film’s original team of George A. Romero and John A. Russo, who have joined up with author Jonathan Maberry to edit the zombie anthology.

In 1968, the world experienced a brand-new kind of terror with the debut of George A. Romero’s landmark movie Night of the Living Dead. The newly dead rose to attack the living. Not as vampires or werewolves. This was something new… and terrifying. Since then, zombies have invaded every aspect of popular culture.

But it all started on that dreadful night in a remote farmhouse…

Nights of the Living Dead returns to that night, to the outbreak, to where it all began. New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry teams with the godfather of the living dead himself, George A. Romero, to present a collection of all-new tales set during the forty-eight hours of that legendary outbreak.

The follow is a bunch of authors who contributed stories to the Nights of the Living Dead anthology: Jay Bonansinga, Max Brallier, Ryan Brown, Mike Carey, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Craig E. Engler, Mira Grant, Brian Keene, Joe R. Lansdale, Isaac Marion, Carrie Ryan, David J. Schow, Neal and Brenda Shusterman, John Skipp, David Wellington, and Chuck Wendig. Maberry, Romero, and Russo have also written original stories for the new book as well.

You can find Nights of the Living Dead when it hits stores on July 11th, which is being published by Castle Point. If you would prefer, you can pre-order the Kindle version of the book via Amazon right here!
