Locus Magazine editors serialize forthcoming novels online

Locus Magazine's Amelia Beamer sez,
I'm serializing my first novel, THE LOVING DEAD (with zombies and a Zeppelin, out from Night Shade in July), online for free starting today, Monday March 8th. My friend and Locus coworker Tim Pratt is also serializing a new Marla Mason novel, BROKEN MIRRORS, starting Monday March 8th. Locus editors do it for free!

What people are saying about THE LOVING DEAD:

"Zombies are all over the place right now, but trust me, you've NEVER read a zombie novel like this! Amelia Beamer's THE LOVING DEAD is about zombies, all right, but it's zombies with Xanax, zeppelins, Trader Joe's, iPhone apps, sex, humor, adventure, NPR, IKEA, and Indiana Jones! It's a rollercoaster ride of a read and a true original!" -- Connie Willis, New York Times Bestselling author of BLACKOUT.

"THE LOVING DEAD is really kind of hot, in a very creepy way. Read it. You know you'd love you some sweet zombie sumpin' sumpin'. Buy it, bitches! Ride this zombie zeppelin of love like there's no tomorrow." -- Christopher Moore, New York Times Bestselling author of LAMB and A DIRTY JOB

  1. >I’m serializing my first novel, THE LOVING DEAD (with zombies and a Zeppelin…

    Wait! Is that zombies and a Zeppelin, or Zombies on a Zeppelin?

    “I am SICK of these muthafuckin’ zombies on this muthafuckin’ Zeppelin!”

    (If I’d only known about this development when I was standing behind her in the registration line at Denvention.)

    1. Neither. It’s an undead Jimmy Paige and Robert Plant. In a delightful bit of irony, Zombie Admiral John Paul Jones, eats the brains of guitarist John Paul Jones.

  2. I misread this to say “Loving The Dead” , and thought it was a care & handling manual for sex corpses.

    I’ll check Amazon.

  3. Hey, that cover art is by David Palumbo! If you go to his site you can see the whole painting, which I personally like better than the cover itself.
    Sounds like a sweet book, though! I’m a little wary of modern zombie themed things (since it’s so popular, it seems overdone), but just because there’s a lot of crap out there doesn’t mean this is! I look forward to reading it…and honestly it would have to be pretty horrible for it to not be at least entertaining.
