The Waterstones Book Launch Draws Closer

Just like a brain-dead, one-legged zombie, crawling and dragging its way towards you, with only one thing on its mind, so the Waterstones launch of Sunny with a Chance of Zombies draws steadily closer.

This Friday, October 16th, Waterstones in Aberystwyth, Wales, will brave the approaching darkness and open its doors to zombie lovers, survivors, and hunters at 6.30pm for the event. There will be readings, refreshments, and the chance to grab one of a limited number of copies of the anthology, which includes my story Order Up.

Sunny with a Chance of Zombies in Waterstones

In the weeks running up to the launch, Sunny with a Chance of Zombies has been in the store’s window, but it has now been moved to a prime position in the very front. As the anthology’s editor, Dion Winton Polak (pictured) says; “just hanging out with the likes of Tom Jones and George Martin.”

Stephen Cooneys Artwork in Waterstones

And inside the store, the original cover art, created by the very talented Stephen Cooney, is now on display.

So, if you can get to Aberystwyth on Friday evening, do brave the flesh-eaters and drop into the launch. And, if you’re looking for an editor, you can contact Dion Winton Polak (whom I greatly recommend) via Facebook or Twitter. And you can find out more about Stephen Cooney and his artwork at
