Ian Livingstone to release a new Fighting Fantasy book involving zombies (the book, not the release)

So Ian Livingstone is releasing a new Fighting Fantasy book in August to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the beginning of Fighting Fantasy.  However, much to my surprise, it's going to have nothing to do with Titan and instead it will be set in the modern world with zombies.  You can even vote on the name if you go here.

I'm interested to see the end result and I'm wondering if any more new Fighting Fantasy books will be released by Ian or anyone else.

To discuss the new book, or to suggest alternative titles, you could go here or here.

Here is 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...

  1. Looking forward to this - though I notice that the premise is not entirely new.
    There was 'How to survive the Zombie Apocalypse' a couple of years ago, and then this www.amazon.co.uk/Risen-The-Zombie-Survival-Game/dp/1471681769 earlier this year.....
