New Release: Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse

dawn-of-the-apocalypse-6X9

IFWG Publishing is delighted to announce the world-wide release of Lee Murray’s middle grade novel, Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse. “We pride ourselves in the success and range of our middle grade / young teen novels,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and Murray’s novel enhances our  catalogue. We now have a New Zealand contribution, and one that adds a unique take on horror tropes – and yet original from many angles.”

Chaos’ latest game is positively epic. Just look at the trailer: the hero Bastion Axestone striding through the city streets, fireballs exploding around him and zombies staggering in his wake. Seb can’t wait to play it. He downloads the works. Explosive effects, 3D upgrade, heavy metal soundtrack and a subliminal quotient—whatever that is.

But the next day, Seb and his friends wake up to an apocalypse. Their teachers are missing in action, coach doesn’t come to practice, and Seb’s dad spends all day in his pyjamas. Even worse, not only has Mum not been in to work, she hasn’t bothered to brush her teeth. It’s beginning to look as if every grown-up in Bridgetown—possibly the entire world—has been zombified. They’re obsessed with their personal electronic devices and it’s all Seb’s fault because he’s the one who downloaded the game in the first place. Now, he has to fix it. But how? It’s not as if he can un-download the game. Along with his best mate, Darren, and Talia, The Prettiest Girl in School, Seb has to figure out how to reverse the effect of the computer virus. But in the meantime, the zombies need feeding, Seb’s little sister, Ava, needs minding, and someone has to walk the dog…

Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse is released world-wide and is available from all good bricks and mortar stores, and online (print and ebook).

New Release: The Cave at the End of the Universe by Ali Foster

It is with great pleasure that we can announce the release of the third and final instalment of Ali Foster‘s children’s Ginomees Trilogy, The Cave at the End of the Universe. “It has been a pleasure to work with Ali on this series, and marrying her wonderful sketches with her fantastical writing,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG. “The concept of cast-away garden gnomes having lives and souls – and very different personalities – was enchanting for us at IFWG and we knew this was a worthwhile project. The three covers by the very talented New Zealand artist, Cheryl Smith (of Macarn Designs) was the icing on the cake.”

The Cave at the End of the Universe is, like its two predecessors, available in all good bricks and mortar and online stores, including in various ebook formats.

The first two books in the Ginomees Trilogy:

New Release: Metamorphosis by Claire Fitzpatrick

It is with great pleasure and pride that we can announce the world-wide release of Claire Fitzpatrick‘s collection of short body horror fiction, Metamorphosis.

metamorphosis2-new

“Body horror is a specialised dimension of horror,” stated Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing, “and there are several authors in Australia who have mastered it, lifting it to an art-form that is more than just guts and gore. Claire Fitzpatrick is definitely one of them. We believe this collection fills this sub-genre niche in our catalogue perfectly, and the quality of Claire’s writing also meets the high standards of horror writing that we look for. This is a winner.”

Madeline will never become a woman. William will never become a man. Does June deserve to be human? Does Lilith deserve a heart?

Seventeen stories. Seventeen tales of terror.

If imperfection is crucial to a society’s survival, what makes a monster?

Australian Shadows Award-winning author, Brian Craddock, describes Claire’s work perfectly: “Visceral and demented, full of flesh that twists and deforms…Fitzpatrick’s stories will either sicken or delight.”

Metamorphosis is now available world-wide, in all good online and print stores, and in ebook formats.
