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
