About the Author
Edit I am the creator and author of A Dragon Among Us as well as Elmoryn and Adrian's Undead Diary. Elmoryn is a decade old game setting and system I developed for commercial sale and development that I am now sharing on the internet, and through the publication of The Kinless Trilogy. As the books set in the Elmoryn universe are released, hopefully interest in the game will grow as well, and that side of Elmoryn will come to light. A Dragon Among Us was inspired by decade old Role Playing sessions with my friend Alan MacRaffen, and has been percolating ever since. It's currently online, and once completed will be farmed into publishing. Not sure if I'll submit it to a big house, or keep it my own. Time will tell. Adrian's Undead Diary is my mammoth zombie epic that more than likely brought you here. Originally published online AUD grew to almost 10,000 active registered users before I decided to publish it. Adrian Ring's story of survival and humanity in a world gone mad has been critically acclaimed and been an unbelievable success online, so seeing what it'll do in print is exciting for me. I'm also the owner of Tier One Games LLC, my old game development company. If you buy something from AUD, Elmoryn, or A Dragon Among Us, you'll likely see the sale credited to Tier One Games. Don't worry, it's legit. I've gone to a LOT of college. I've got a Business degree as well as a Psychology degree, and I've done the full program at the school of hard knocks. I've been a printing press operator, bouncer, purchasing agent, bodyguard, customer service representative, mental health counselor, and more. I can write about weird stuff because I've done weird stuff. Trust me. I call the wonderful state of New Hampshire my home, but I love to travel. I love to read, write, play role playing games, miniatures games, video games, and Magic: The Gathering. When I find the time to be active, I like to hike, play basketball, and play football. I've got a lovely girlfriend right now, and two Devon Rex cats, Gilbert and Marvin.

I read this series three times when it was online only, staying up until the wee hours of the morning at times to read the latest installment, then going to work half asleep. lol Now that it's in print, I am absolutely buying the whole series, as this is something I can read over and over. Don't believe me? Buy the first two books, it's less than $30 including shipping for the paper backs, and less than $10 for the e-books. If you're not hooked after that, then I don't know what to say.
Adrian is on point and funny as ever. That poor guy can never catch a break.
The rivalry between our friends at ALPA and the morons across town that were causing Abby's family and many others misery really heats up. You could say the poop definitely hits the fan in this one over and over again.
Speaking of poop, the origin of the "toe pusher" is revealed as well as how many different ways poop can hit the fan. All good fun and very entertaining!
The title of the book comes from a short story contained within detailing the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. I have read countless zompoc novels and series. It's usually the same old story or slight variation thereof that leads to the end. That is not the case here. This is easily the best origin story I have ever read.
The short story "London" is also contained in this volume which is what the stand alone book "London Burns" is based on.
I could go on forever. There is so much more I won't give away and no shortage of action in this installment. It's sure to keep fans turning the pages into the wee hours. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
I know Adrian does not care for flaming zombies, but I think a large portion of the entertainment industry are flaming liberals. What is funny about that is that most Zombie stories address self reliance and the need to take care of yourself. No government is going to be able to save you. I think people who love politics/history/current events would find Adrian's Undead Diary to be fascinating. I actually have 3 favorite zombie stories: Josh Guess- Living with the Dead; Kathy from FL – Mom’s Journal of the Zombie Year’s
and of course the best ever Adrian’s Undead Diary. Not only do I think the stories above make up some of the best literature ever written, all 3 were written over several years and posted on the internet for free.
A year ago, I had never read a zombie story and it was not on any future to do list. However, I was so disgusted by the 2012 election cycle, I went on a no news, no politics, and no current events six month vacation. Considering I listened to talk radio/NPR 2 hours a day while driving, watched 2 hours of news and read several papers a day that was taking a vacation from a huge portion of what made up my day.
At the time I got on my kindle and starting reading a lot more fiction. Trying to save some money, I borrowed Apocalypse Z by Manel Loureiro from the kindle lending library. I thought the book sounded interesting but I was not ready to spend my money on a zombie book. Boy was I surprised. I was so entertained by the story. I wanted to read more. As it works with kindle, one purchase leads to another and I was shocked and consumed by the writing and quality of stories I was reading. However, books can get expensive. Then…I found the Promised Land. I found Adrian’s Undead Diary and a couple of other internet zombie stories.
Over the last year, many of my friends have been dubious of my new found love. Zombies???Really???
Yes, really. I find the dichotomy of zombies (not real, yet) and the threats facing our nation (very real) and using the two elements to create a world that is full of a need to survive, live and rebuild absolutely fascinating. These stories have every day people finding the world as they knew it blown up and they have to figure it out. How do you survive, how to you protect yourself, how do you find food, who are your fellow survivors, who are your enemies? These questions and answers have been a part of history and literature for hundreds of years. Zombies just kick up the drama several notches because if you do not get things figured out real quick, your dinner.
Adrian Ring and his diary have all the elements of a great read. The zombies just make it more fun.
In terms of the story/series, I loved it, for several reasons. It was a refreshing approach; it had that intangible "make you want to read the next page" characteristic; a unique, very funny, protagonist; lots of fun action; and, finally, it had an ending! I am tired of never-ending zombie series. Let me have a book with a beginning and an end, like in the old days of writing! At least a few books and be done! AUD left the door open for more in the future, but it didn't leave the story hanging, making you unsatisfied until the next installment came out.
It has a spiritual good vs evil angle that I don't normally look for in a zombie book. Many zombie books don't explain the apocalypse at all, but Philbrook's inclusion of this in AUD was appropriate in that it added depth, but didn't detract from the action, if that makes sense.
Buy the books, join Philbrook's website, read the blog. It's good stuff.
I'm looking forward to reading more of Philbrook's writing.
