Rejoice zombie fans! Word has it that the godfather of the zombie genre, George A. Romero, is gearing up to bring us more of his pitch-perfect brand of undead mayhem in a startling new form.
Romero is in the final stages of negotiations with Grand Central Publishing of New York to bring fans two original novels that take place within the Dead universe.
To say that Romero is an authority on the modern-day zombie is a bit of an understatement. In fact I’d hazard to say there’s no one else on the planet more qualified to write a zombie book than George. The debut novel will brings fans exactly what they’ve been craving as it will feature Romero laying down the ground rules of the zombie epidemic right from the beginning of the end. Looks like we may even get a chance to find out why these things got up and started feasting.
Grand Central is set to publish the first book in the summer of 2010, with a second book to follow sometime after that. Look for more details on the books as soon as we get them.
