ARISEN : Raiders
Volume 3 – Dead Men Walking

Readers call the ARISEN series:   “the new Gold Standard – by far the most thoughtful and intriguing zombie series ever written” … “the most harrowing, sustained action sequences I think I've ever read” … “rolls along like an out of control freight train” … “the wildest and best rollercoaster I've ever been on” … “They grab you on the first page and kick your ass through the entire series” … “you never know what the hell is coming at you next” … “Every time I think it cannot get any better, BAM!” … “not only the best zombie apocalypse series in print, it's also better than any military classic written by Clancy, Coyle, or Poyer” … “Every time I think it cannot get any better, BAM!” … “the best post-apocalyptic military fiction there is” … “If you haven't read these you need to reevaluate your life” … “You feel like the explosions are going off beside your head” … “Blows World War Z out of the water” … “insane propulsive storytelling” … “Wall to wall adrenaline – edge of your seat unputdownable until the very last page

cover of ARISEN : Raiders, Volume 3 - Dead Men Walking

Two teams of pipe-hitting special-operations Marines, a tribe knit tight as steel cable.
One Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman, struggling to find his place and keep the others alive.
And everything at the end of the world exploding spectacularly at all times…

The world’s last nuclear supercarrier, its support ships, and its Marine Raider guardians have survived the first months of post-Apocalypse. But now they must keep their 7,500 souls fed, their non-nuclear vessels fueled, and their honor clean – by deciding whether to risk everything by coming to the aid of beleaguered American troops in contact, in the most remote combat outpost in the world. Their lonely battles and struggles will take them from the teeming slums off the west coast of India, to the world’s tallest building in Dubai, to an idyllic desert-island paradise they can briefly call home, and finally into the unforgiving heights and impossible decisions of the Hindu Kush.

Brotherhood. Sacrifice. Survival.

Hope Never Dies.

Available now from Amazon (worldwide).

And Volume 1 for Only $0.99!

And to celebrate the launch of Dead Men Walking, for a limited time Volume 1 – The Collapse is available on Kindle for a mere $0.99! So, obviously, now is a fantastic time to start the series if you haven’t already.

(Though, just between you, me, and the dead guy on the corner, Saturday would be an even better time, when the Kindle edition will be $0.00 for five days. )

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
