Zombies on the Rock: The Viking Trail| Paul Carberry

Zombie hoards created by the evil Pharmakon company have taken over the world, including the one place that always thought it was safe from the calamities of the outside: the quiet, scenic shores of Newfoundland’s west coast. In this horrifying second volume, the island survivors of the zombie massacres believe they are safe, settled away in a cabin far off the grid: but nothing can stop the spread of the undead, as the zombies make their way to the historic Viking Trail, where even more terror awaits….

The Good, The Bad and The Zombie # 2

Thanks for tuning into the second edition of The Good, The Bad and The Zombie.

The Good

We are only one week away from Atlanti-Con 6. In just seven days at the Corner Brook Civic center at 5 pm the doors will open. Then the opening ceremonies will take place at 5:30 and that’s just the beginning of a great weekend. It’s going to be a wonderful con so make sure you get out and take part in the fun. We have JG Hertzler and D.C. Douglas attending this year along with fan favorites Fat Apollo and Kevin St. Pierre returning. The vendors room will be bigger and better than ever with more tables to visit. The wide range of fun and exciting panels will offer something for everyone so make sure you take the time to enjoy the ones you want to see. Make sure you bring water with you because it can be a long day and with all those people it tends to get a little warm at any convention, especially if you decide to wear your favorite cosplay. So remember come on down to the Civic Center next Friday for Atlanti-Con. Remember to have fun and respect all those around you. Cosplay does not mean consent.

The Good, The Bad and The Zombie #1

Hello fellow zombie fans and welcome to my weekly blog about the good, the bad and of course, the zombie. Every Friday I plan to share my thoughts on something good, something bad and something that has come back to life.

The Good

The Con community has grown into something much larger than a science fiction convention. The first Con I attended was Atlanti-Con 2 and the reason I went was to see the guests and to buy some super cool, geeky merchandise. After attending several more of these conventions I still look forward to seeing all the awesome stuff available from all my favorite vendors but that isn’t the reason I go any more. The con weekends are about so much more. For three days it becomes an escape from the hectic work weeks and an escape into a fantastical world where I go to see all my friends that I only get to see during these conventions. It is almost like getting the family together for Christmas. You get to catch up with everyone and learn about what they’ve been up too in the real world. I spend most of my day wandering from table to table talking to everyone, sharing a laugh or learning about what everyone’s been up to since the last convention. So I would like to share my good experience at Avalon Expo 3 with you all just in case you couldn’t make it. Matthew Ledrew’s newest release, Jacobi Street launched this past Friday and I can tell you it could be his darkest work yet. I was lucky enough to read it before it was released (Thanks Matt) and I can still feel  the chill running up my spine. It’s a hard book to put down and I will soon post my full review. I was excited to see a new book on Charles O’Keefe’s table. A collection of short stories called The Chaos Stories: Tales of Magic, Terror, Passion and Blood. I can’t wait to pick up my very own copy. As always Scott Bartlett was hard at work and I am currently reading Supercarrier: The Ixan Prophecies Trilogy Book 1 so stay tuned for my views about his latest military sci fi adventure. Unfortunately Heather Reilly was under the weather so I had to avoid her like the plague but I know shes working on something great so I look forward to Atlanti-Con in two weeks. Starting to freak out because ATLANTIC CON 6 IS IN 2 WEEKS. I absolutely can not wait for my home town convention and, in my biased opinion, the best Con in Atlantic Canada!

Fairies, Mermaids, Vampires, and Zombies, OH MY! | The Writer’s Block

The first Writer’s Block course we’d like to announce as happening during Avalon Expo is Fairies, Mermaids, Vampires, and Zombies, OH MY!, which is tentatively scheduled for Saturday August 26th from 4-4:50PM!

The panel will include: Ellen Curtis (editor of Fantasy from the Rock and author of the Infinity series), Charles O’Keefe (the spellbinding author of The Newfoundland Vampire and its sequels), Paul Carberry (author of the Zombies on the Rock series), and Amanda Labonté (author of the mermaid-inspired Call of the Sea series and the Vampire-Werewolf medical drama Supernatural Causes).

Engen gets Pulp-O-Mizered | Gallery

This week, our social-media feed went insane with our fellow convention-goers taking advantage of the Pulp-O-Mizer, a fun new online tool that allows you to create your very own retro-style Pulp Magazine covers… and if you think we’d didn’t make versions of our own titles, you really don’t know us well. Enjoy!
