In 2007 the Breathing Dead zombie novella was first published and in the last three years there has been a boom of Zombie movies and books. Some good, some bad and some just ugly.

Coincidentally idea’s from the short story have ended up on the screen, most recently Collin & Zombie Land. In any case no harm done. Author A.M. Esmonde says,”it’s typical you think of an original idea and some else on the other side world comes up with a similar thing around the same time. It’s like it’s in the air. It’s annoying but it’s impossible, I hope, that my story was plagiarised.”The novella was clearly inspired by George A. Romero and follows his film ‘rules’.

Maybe it’s the subject matter of hope in harrowing times, who knows but the audio-book has hit a nerve.The audio-book features the voice talent of Welsh born Paul Rees of the volts artz show who’s Richard Burton sounding tones gives weight to the simple story of survival and little of Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds.

Although it’s not a musical it does feature a great soundtrack by Kevin MacLeod.Will The Breathing Dead ever be reprinted? The answer from The Breathing Dead Ltd was this, “The Breathing Dead will not have another print run, however, after follow up vampire book Blood Hunger, A.M. Esmonde’s next novel will be a re-imagined expanded version of The Breathing Dead called Deathwatch. So fans of the Breathing Dead will be taken back to Farmore and introduced to characters, old and new.”
