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…
IFWG is excited to announce its 9th Chap-ebook, Haunted Flesh: Stories of the Living Dead, by Robert Hood. Over recent months we supplied the chap-ebook with our Peripheral Visions limited edition give-away, but now we believe it is the right time to also release this 32k collection of zombie tales for sale.
When are dead people not ghosts? That’s easy. When they try to eat you!
Haunted Flesh: Stories of the Living Dead collects six of Australian horror maestro Robert Hood’s creepiest, most outlandish tales of flesh-bound cadaver mayhem. Some tear bloodily into the tradition established by director George A. Romero with his Living Dead series of films, while others paddle in a murky pool of science-based resurrection, alien possession, undead whimsy and voodoo politics. Important questions are addressed: Does the essence of life lie in the mind or in the heart? Do the dead make good workers? When a creepy evangelist knocks on your door, what does he mean when he offers you the secret of eternal life? Should you invite zombies to a BBQ? Is the Prime Minister really dead? The answers may shock you, they may make you laugh uneasily, but either way you’ll never look at life and death the same way again.
As a special bonus, this volume includes an important article that exposes the truth behind the zombie movie tradition!
“… laugh-out-loud funny, and boasts levels of gore that would make George Romero blanch. This may well be the very best zombie tale I’ve ever read.” (Horrorscope review of “In the Service of the Flesh”).
Haunted Flesh is now available in Kindle format, and will shortly be available as ebooks-only through all good online stores, and direct from IFWG Publishing Australia.
IFWG Publishing Australia is pleased to reveal the Chap-eBook, “Haunted Flesh: Stories of the Living Dead” by Robert Hood.

These are spectacular stories that are hard to find and now collected in a single work.
For a month or two, this chap-ebook is only available as a bonus with the limited, numbered edition offer of Peripheral Visions: The Complete Ghost Stories mega-collection by Robert Hood. Thereafter, stay tuned for the announcement of the ebook released, Number 9 in IFWG Publishing’s chap-ebook series.
Special mention should be given to artist Steve Santiago, horror and dark subject extraordinaire, who designed this creepy cover.
