More About the Author

Hi! I'm Geoff, and you've either stumbled onto this page by accident, or maybe you're into this kind of stuff.

I've been a voracious reader of horror, fantasy, and science fiction my entire life, but I didn't take the plunge into writing my own stories until recently. I've done a lot of stuff and seen a lot of things along the way. I've worked in hotels, managed grocery stores, dabbled in carpentry miserably, created a series of twisted comic books, and contributed political cartoons to a handful of newspapers. Maybe I needed to live life some to get where I am now - happily writing books to scare people.

This has been one of my favorite post-apocalyptic fiction books. These characters, Cobe, Willam, Trot and Lawson the Lawman, really got under my skin. Every time they got the crap beaten out of them whether it was by the cryers, the bad guys or gals or by those scary arsed rollers, I was terrified for them. You will fall in love with these people along the way. Maybe even one of the Cryers too. I hope that there is going to be a continuation of this book, as it could very well carry on. Either way, it did have an ending and now I'm just hoping for another beginning....Please! Yep, I'd recommend this story and author.

Cobe and his brother Willem live in a post-apocalyptic village where it is a bad idea to be different or intelligent. They decide to run away, knowing if they are caught they will be hanged. They are joined by the Lawman and another outcast of the village, Trot. They are surprised to find the Lawman is on their side and wants to help them get to a better place to live.

On the way, they encounter various mutations caused by the multiple wars and natural events that occurred over the past thousand years.

Running parallel to this story is one about a former Nazi who developed cryogenic technology and builds a business by selling the promise of life after death to rich people. These are the "Cryers" of the title for reasons which will be explained in the book.

The two stories intersect when the Lawman needs to visit "Big Hole" (what he calls the buried cryogenic facility) to get supplies for their journey. They find the people who had been frozen a thousand years are not really human anymore. They are hungry.

This was an interesting start to what I hope will be a great new series. Cobe and Willem are brothers. They may live a thousand years in the future, but they act pretty much like teenage brothers we all know. They are funny and courageous. I hope we learn more about the Lawman's history because he seems to know a lot more than most of the people in this new world. The "Frozen Dead" referred to in the title are unlike any other zombies. They are intelligent, which makes them more dangerous. I hope it also makes them so arrogant that it leads to their downfall, but we'll find out the rest of their story over the course of the series.

Altogether, this is a very unique take on the zombie genre. I'm on to Book 2.

This book was something of a change from the usual post-apocalyptic zombie novel, even from those others positioned in a relatively distant future. I groaned inwardly at the tired ex-Nazi protagonist, a trope overused in suspense novels, but the character himself was much better executed and written than I initially expected. The other bad dudes verged on stereotypes to some extent, never quite managing, in the main, to transcend hackneyed vision of gluttonous and self-centred slobs. The one exception to this was the "Edna" character, who inexplicably had a deeper and more humane side after a point (spoiler, I don't want to give it away). The dark, dystopian society is standard fare, as is the chaos and references that pin everything from 'Alas Babylon' to 'Beyond Thunderdome'. One point I wish were better addressed was the character development: none really stood out, even after there was some belated expansion on back-stories and context. Relating to them in any real manner took a lot longer than I would have hoped, and yet there was some element of depth to them that saved them in the end, for the most part.

Need a sequel, though is most certainly set up for one. Needs also to see some sense that the world has more people in it and a greater sense of menace.

by Stephen King. It starts pretty slow, but once it picks up it never stops. A distant hopeless future in which the strongest rule and nowhere is safe, a gunman and his companions stand tall. It is most certainly worthy of five stars, I was disappointed every time I had to put it down.

Absolutely LOVED this book!!! The characters were easy to like (or hate), and the action never stopped. I'd love to see another book pick up where this one left off - what's happening on Victory Island? Keep up the great writing Mr. North!
