Zombies, vampires, private-eyes!!! Who could ask for more?? A great mixture of horror and detective story, this was actually expanded form a novella and will now form part of a series.

Synopsis

Nekropolis by Tim Waggoner

Meet Matt Richter. Private eye. Zombie.

His mean streets are the city of the dead, the shadowy realm known as Nekropolis. In this first case, Richter must help a delectable half-vampire named Devona recover a legendary artifact known as the Dawnstone, before it’s used to destroy Nekropolis itself. That is, if he can survive the myriad horrors that infest the city itself.

Originally published as a limited run novella, the expanded Nekropolis is the definitive version of this massively entertaining series opener.

Reviews

“It’s hard to say if this singular novel, which boasts a wicked sense of humour to round off the horror, should be eligible for an Edgar Award or a Bram Stoker, or both.” – Elliot Swanson, Booklist

“[Nekropolis] is an atmospheric and exciting mystery.” – SF Site

“An up-and-comer who’s worthy of the hype... Tim Waggoner is well on his way to being proclaimed horror fiction’s leading surrealist.” – Cemetery Dance
