Play Dead Zombie Crawl

It was a lot fun working with Sam Weber on Play Dead. He really did a wonderful job. There was a lot of back and forth with what direction we wanted to go with. Whether we wanted the cover to more humorous or campy, but in the end I'm happy with the way this turned out. Though I wish we could of had the rest of the team on the cover.

Hundreds of zombies gathered this past Sunday for the latest NYC Zombie Crawl. Around 5pm they moved up Bedford Ave to play zombie football with Play Dead author Ryan Brown in McCarren Park. After the game there was a screening of Play Dead the Movie at the Knitting Factory. You can watch the trailer here.

I was out camping this weekend but I would've loved to have been there. Just look at these photos!

Here's a description.

Today’s #1 New York Times bestselling thriller writers agree: Ryan Brown’s compulsively readable first novel is unbeatable—a darkly humorous, rich and pungent zombie shocker that melds our national obsession with football and the newest wave of fascination with the undead.

For the first time in Killington High School history, the Jackrabbits football team is one win away from the district championship where it will face its most vicious rival, the Elmwood Heights Badgers. On the way to the game, the Jackrabbits’s bus plunges into a river, killing every player except for bad-boy quarterback Cole Logan who is certain the crash was no accident—given that Cole himself was severely injured in a brutal attack by three ski-masked men earlier that day. Bent on payback, Cole turns to a mysterious fan skilled in black magic to resurrect his teammates. But unless the undead Jackrabbits defeat their murderous rival on the field, the team is destined for hell. In a desperate race against time, with only his coach’s clever daughter, Savannah Hickman, to assist him, Cole must lead his zombie team to victory

. . . in a final showdown where the stakes aren’t just life or death—but damnation or salvation. Boundlessly imaginative and thrillingly satisfying, Play Dead gives small-town Texas an electrifying jolt of the supernatural, and is unquestioningly The Zombie Novel of the Year!
