Loom is proud to announce the latest book to be released under the imprint: Survival of the Fittest: Metamorphosis. Johnny Pearce, author and philosopher who usually writes nonfiction under the full name of Jonathan MS Pearce, has branched out into his first fiction book, Book 1 of the Survival of the Fittest series. The book is a zombie, dystopian one looking at various character threads as the world (modern suburban Britain) collapses around them. The narrative is threaded with philosophy and ideas to make the reader think. Whether it be morality, humanity, consciousness or religion, everything is fair game.
So far, early reviews have been great:
“A frightening and credible zombie apocalypse. This is the way the world would end―not with a bang or a whimper, but with a snarl and the gnashing of teeth…” Rebecca Bradley, author of Cadon, Hunter and From Hades With Love
“Pearce’s rollicking suburban adventure begs to be consumed and it won’t let go until life is sucked from the final pages.” Glenn Andrew Barr, author of Skin of Them
“Johnny Pearce has written a shockingly good zombie story with a literary quality unfamiliar to the genre. Don’t let the slow build fool you―the growing tension plays a vital role in allowing everything to snap with a most satisfying sort of frayed devastation. Once all hell breaks loose it’s a no holds barred gore fest!” Tristan Vick, author of BITTEN: Resurrection and BITTEN 2: Land of the Rising Dead
The book is presently available on ebook formats (Kindle, Nook and Kobo), as well as in paperback.
