Handling the Undead - John Ajvide Lindqvist
What you've all been waiting for has finally come... A Zombie Novel!!! Not just any zombie novel, but one written by the creator of Let the Right One In, John Ajvide Lindqvist. Here's the blurb from Amazon: Zombies and human clash in this horror novel by the author of the international bestseller Let the Right One In, for which he wrote the screenplay for the the Swedish smash hit film of the same name, which some critics (see below) have called the best vampire film ever made. John Ajvide Lindqvist has reinvented the vampire genre. Now he's taken on zombies, and readers everywhere will find themselves utterly consumed by Handling the Undead. Something peculiar is happening. While the city is enduring a heat wave, people are finding that their electric appliances won't stay switched off. And everyone has a blinding headache. Then the terrible news breaks - in the city morgue, the newly dead are waking

What we're about

For those who like to face their fears... with books!

We read one weird, wonderful and (crucially) terror-inducing book* a month. Then we meet up in central London to discuss.

If you like:

• Horror

• Dark Fantasy

• Weird Fiction

• Ghost Stories

• Gothic Fiction

• or just generally being scared and/or weirded out of your pants...

...then The Horror Book Club is for you!

Just some quick house rules for meetings:

1. The resurrection of the dead is strictly forbidden

2. No biting

3. It is polite to warn members before summoning spirits, demons or ancient deities

4. All familiars, zombie-slaves and maniacal assistants must wait outside the venue for the duration or the meeting

5. No rampaging

*Either novel, graphic novel or a short story collection.
