Looks exciting.  I'm going to do something about my broke-assedness and promptly pick it up.  cheers

Cool, man. I appreciate that - let me know if you enjoy it, when you get around to reading it :)

London-based popular culture magazine, LIBERATION FREQUENCY, have posted an interview with Dave Moody (author of HATER).

They posted a short but very sweet review of DDG at the end of Dave's interview, alongside a review of Max Brooks' WORLD WAR Z:

Drop Dead Gorgeous
Wayne Simmons

Reads more like a gritty drama than a zombie book until that is the author reveals his masterful hand and tears your still beating heart from your chest. Do not miss! 4/5


Check out both Dave's interview, and the DDG review at:

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS has been put forward as one of the finalists for the FREEDOM BOOK CLUB's 'Summer Reading Programme'.

If you think it would be SUPER COOL if a tattoo-flavoured, anarchist, horror book was to win the poll, please take a second to visit the following link to vote for DDG - your e-mail is NOT required, nor are any personal details:

Thanks in advance!

Is it much like Brian Keene's The Rising, Dead City and Dead Sea?

I'll probably check it out.

Thanks!

I've only read THE RISING - and it's a good, pulpy read.

I'm not sure that DDG would be similar to Keene's work, but it's pretty pulpy.

You've pushed it very well. I plan on buying this.

Thanks a lot! I look forward to hearing what you think of it :)

I think it has to be in more than one thread to be spam.  :?

Sorry it bothers you, Joe.

The thread is clearly defined so you can avoid it if you so desire, without much intrusion.

Alternative clothing company, LIP SERVICE, have posted a wonderfully bright 'fashion freak' feature on DDG at:

http://www.lip-service.com/webzine/?p=1522

Here's a snippet:

'If your thing is politely worded tomes about fragile heroines, Drop Dead Gorgeous is probably a bit harsh for your delicate sensibilities. BUT, if you’re into action-laced horror filled with choice vulgarity, vivid gore, and full-tilt, ass-kicking chicks out to, not just survive, but live with a vengeance sporting a cranked up attitude, Drop Dead Gorgeous is your kind of read.'
