Ian Livingstone signing Blood of the Zombies at Forbidden Planet

With only a month to go until Blood of the Zombies rises from its grave to devour our juicy grey matter, this blogger is getting excited to pick up his dice and strike down evil with the flick of a pencil.

But while I won't be able to make it, Ian Livingstone is doing a signing for his new book at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London on 4th August. Check the site for more details.

However, those unable to make it can order an autographed copy from the online store, which is exactly what I've just done. Check out the blurb:
In this adventure YOU are kidnapped and sold to a deranged megalomaniac who wants to build an army of undead to exact terrible revenge on those once mocked him. He hates everybody except for his scientists and servants. The scientists were instructed to develop a mutated gene in human blood which would be injected into innocent victims, turning them into Zombies. The madman's henchmen kidnapped hundreds of people who were locked up to await their fate. YOU are about to be injected with Zombie blood. The Zombie army is almost complete, ready to be unleashed upon the world in a frenzy of killing and wanton destruction. YOU have to avoid being transformed into a Zombie. YOU have to kill all the Zombies, dispose of the madman and escape from the castle. To do this you will need a lot of firepower to take down the hordes of Zombies. But don't kill everybody as there is one person who needs to be rescued...
The new adventure is set in modern times, which is only the second time this has happened, the first being House of Hell. I like the sound of 'you will need a lot of firepower'. Awesome.
