About Tankbread, a novel by Paul Mannering.
Ten years ago humanity lost the war for survival against a spreading plague that brought the dead back to life as flesh eating monsters.
Now intelligent zombies rule the world. Feeding the undead a steady diet of cloned people called Tankbread, the survivors live in a dangerous world on the brink of final extinction.
One outlaw courier must go on a journey through the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Australia. Fighting his way into the very heart of the apocalypse in the desperate search for a way to save the last humans and destroy the undead threat.
His only companion is a girl with an extraordinary secret. Her name is Else and she's Tankbread.
Praise for Tankbread:
Paul Mannering's TANKBREAD is a guts and glory joyride into very dark territory. Very nasty and lots of fun!"
~ Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of DEAD OF NIGHT and DUST & DECAY
Mannering's take on the post-zombie apocalypse is scarifyingly real. Baked dog while you take orders from your zombie master anyone? Sink your teeth into an Australia where the zombies are in charge - you
won't be disappointed.
~ Rocky Wood, author of STEPHEN KING: A LITERARY COMPANION and HORRORS! GREAT STORIES OF FEAR AND THEIR CREATORS
"Tankbread reads like a tick-list of genre staples: tens of thousands of zombies, a brave, wise-cracking warrior hero, a beautiful woman who might just hold the key to everything, mad scientists, and even a knight in shining armour and a helicopter-piloting mother superior thrown into the mix! And yet the whole is far greater than the sum of its disparate parts. Tankbread is a blast from start to finish. A breathless, country-crossing zombie epic - kind of like Mad Max colliding head on with Dawn of the Dead. Mixing great action scenes, laugh-out loud moments, copious amounts of horror and lead characters you really grow to give a damn about, Tankbread is a unique and very entertaining entry in the over-saturated zombie genre. Read it and enjoy it - I did."
~ David Moody, author of the AUTUMN and HATER series.
