by Nate Southard

Millwood was a good place to be when the dead rose. Small,

isolated, easy to defend. The survivors there forged a community,

weathered what came, and began to prosper.


But then they ran out of food.


Now, Millwood is sending five men to the neighboring town of Rundberg,

a place ruled by three thousand living dead, to find

enough food to save their community.


Five against three thousand? They don't stand a chance.




"Nate Southard's Scavengers has got everything fans of the zombie genre crave: huge cannibalistic crowds of the undead, violent, almost continuous action, mounting paranoia and dread... Not since Richard Matheson have we had a writer so adept at dangling the average American guy on the end of a rope so we can watch him twitch and turn in the wind."


Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Flesheaters



Scavengers is also available at, for Amazon's Kindle,

at, and at chain and independent bookstores nationwide.
