More About the Author

David Moody grew up on a diet of trashy horror and pulp science fiction. He worked as a bank manager before giving up the day job to write about the end of the world for a living. He has written a number of horror novels, including AUTUMN, which has been downloaded more than half a million times since publication in 2001 and spawned a series of sequels and a movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. Film rights to HATER were snapped up by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) and Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad). Moody lives with his wife and a houseful of daughters and stepdaughters, which may explain his pre-occupation with Armageddon. His latest novel, TRUST, is currently available free online at www.trustdavidmoody.com. Visit Moody at www.davidmoody.net.

Product Description

Book Description

The cult hit zombie epic continues! The dead are disintegrating ... but now they are also becoming self-aware.

From the Back Cover

Forty days have passed since the end of the world began. Billions of people were killed in less than a day and now the entire world is rotting.

Those few who are still alive are dealing with a nightmare situation. The dead swarm the land, limited by their decaying bodies - and yet, remarkably, they are becoming more controlled. They are becoming self-aware, and they will defend themselves at all costs.

A group of men and woman have managed to survive against the odds, burning, smashing, battering and destroying every dead body they come across. Somewhere nearby, out of sight and out of earshot, another group of survivors have adopted a completely different strategy for survival: silence, restraint and self-control.

But a series of horrific events are about to force these two groups of people together and time is running out. With tension rising and fear reaching unbearable levels it's suddenly no longer clear whether the biggest threat comes from outside the walls of the shelter, or from within.

Praise for the AUTUMN series:

'David Moody continues to go against the trend by writing zombie fiction (without the word "zombie") and swapping gore for intelligent storytelling and deep character development. This is smart fiction, written with style and insight' Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Patient Zero

'Autumn is genuinely creepy' David Wellington, bestselling author of Monster Island

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Over the course of the last six months, I've been reading David Moody's Autumn books: a series of novels set in a postapocalyptic Britain where an apparent global pandemic has wiped out the majority of the populace and the survivors find themselves outnumbered in a world where many of the dead have not only risen but are becomingly increasingly more dangerous...
Autumn: Disintegration is the fourth in the series and I've made no secret of the fact that I've loved these books so far.

The timeline for Disintegration appears to be roughly similar to that found in the previous entry in the series, Purification, with the undead continuing to rot but also to evolve in a progressively more alarming fashion. Moody does not repeat the events of the third novel in the Autumn series here but weveas them seamlessly into that of Disintegration, where he introduces the reader to a new set of characters who, in keeping with the author's particular style, are incredibly ordinary individuals thrust into an extraordinary situation and as such, exposes the more base instincts of the human condition. Moody's characters display fear, selfishness, stupidity and the overwhelming desire for self-preservation.

Although this is the penulitmate entry in the Autumn series, Disintegration, to my mind, is significantly different to its predecessors in that it will sate the gorehounds out there, since it ramps up the action considerably in comparison.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First published back in December of 2011, ‘Autumn: Disintegration’ formed British author David Moody’s fourth full-length instalment into his signature ‘Autumn’ zombie series (the fifth book after the companion book ‘Autumn: The Human Condition’ (2005)).

DLS Synopsis:
It’s been forty days since the vast majority of the world’s population succumbed to the plague. Since then the dead have risen and those remaining have clung together, hiding themselves away from the walking dead as best they can.

In a deserted housing block that was on the verge of being pulled down before the end of the world struck, a group of eleven tired and stressed survivors attempt to eke out an existence together. Having barricaded up all of the entrances and exits into the dilapidated housing estate, the group of survivors spend their days hiding away in one of the decaying flats; living off the supplies that they have managed to scavenge from the shops nearby.

However, the dead are beginning to congregate in increasing numbers on the other side of their hastily erected car barricades. Their numbers are swelling with each day; the dead drawn to the area by the constant sight and loud noise emitted by the survivors. And so in response to the growing problem, the gang of survivors take drastic action. Mass culls of the dead using hand weaponry and fire are brought into effect. But the numbers of the dead are too great, and with the attitude in the corpses beginning to show signs of changing, becoming increasingly controlled and aware of their surroundings, the time soon comes for the survivors to get out.

But there is another group of survivors close by who have taken a different approach to adapting to the presence of the undead.

Format: Hardcover
Having read the previous series of Autumn books, and following them to a natural conclusion it was a morbid joy to get the chance to re-visit the ravaged world of the original series. With new characters, greater story developments and Moody's outstanding ability to create a truly creepy claustophobic atmosphere, this book really stands as one of the strongest in the series (along with the original Autumn).
The tie in with the story line of the previous book, and the new character's reaction to the "air traffic" really helps to tie everything in and link the tales of the 2 groups of survivors.
Read as part of the series, or stand alone, Disintegration is modern zombie horror at its atmospheric, panicy best.

Format: Paperback
Autumn: Disintegration
Author: David Moody
Publisher: Gollancz
Page count: 358pp
Release date: 29th Dec 2011
Reviewer: Theresa Derwin

The fourth Autumn and penultimate novel in the series, Autumn Disintegration begins two months after the initial outbreak charted in Autumn, the first book of the series.

The dead are beginning to change; to become self aware even as their bodies are disintegrating around them. As the flesh collapses, the mind of these zombies rejects its current state. They have begun to fight in packs, attacking the survivors. Old distractions to occupy the zombies are no longer working.
This novel brings together two groups of survivors; one group demonstrating careful restraint and hiding in the quiet dark, another group intent on loudly and violently destroying every body they encounter. When circumstances bring the two diverse groups of survivors together, all hell breaks loose.

Considering this is the fourth novel in the series and the fact that we are still only on the cusp of winter, a mere two months into the series, Moody manages to retain the tension of the first novel whilst still expanding on his universe. The characters are engaging, the plot is tightly constructed, and the action unfolds at a taut pace. Moody has again delivered a tour-de-force in the genre and I am on tender hooks to see how the fifth book, Autumn Aftermath, unfolds.
