Requiem For The Dead (Zombie D.O.A. Book 12)

Chris Collins has finally reached Washington D.C. and must confront the man who kidnapped his family.

But getting to former senator Buzz Talbert won't be easy.

For starters, Talbert has declared himself President of the United States, installed himself in the White House, and surrounded himself with a huge army. He's thrown up high fences to keep himself and his slave labor force safe.

But will those fences be enough to keep out Colonel Gareth Stone? Stone, now a demented creature clinging to his last scrap of humanity, is headed for Washington too, bent on revenge and with a zombie army a million strong under his command.

Throw in a general who wants to nuke every major American city, a brutal, double-crossing rebel leader, a battle royale at the Lincoln Memorial, and an unusual 10-pin bowling game, and you have a recipe for a rip-roaring, action -packed, post-apocalyptic thrill ride.

Stone Dead Forever (Zombie D.O.A. Book 11)

Chris Collins thought Memphis, Tennessee would be a safe haven for his family, a respite from the relentless pursuit of Colonel Gareth Stone and his zombie army.

But Memphis is run by Buzz Talbert, a megalomaniac former US senator, who has just declared himself President of the United States. Now Talbert has kidnapped Chris's family and is heading for Washington D.C. for his inauguration. Before that he plans on making Kelly Collins his First Lady.

Chris sets off in pursuit, but the run from Memphis to Washington is wrought with dangers. First off there's Colonel Stone and his doped up zombie soldiers. Then there's the clan of cannibalistic bikers known as The Dead Men, who's leader has a personal grudge against Chris and wants to (quite literally) turn him into hamburger.

Throw in a backwoods cannibal clan, a pair of sadistic hunters, and lots and lots of zombies, and you have all the ingredients for a rip-roaring, action -packed, post-apocalyptic adventure.
Stone Dead Forever is the 11th episode of the Zombie D.O.A. series - packed with the usual twists and jaw-dropping action that  the series has become renowned for.

Brainnsss!!! 10 Classic Undead Movies To Feed Your Zombie Obsession

Ever since brothers Victor Halperin and Edward Halperin brought "White Zombie" to the screen in 1932, Hollywood has been obsessed with the undead. The reason is obvious. From this early 30's movie to George A. Romero's zombie classics to "The Walking Dead" zombies make good box office. Here then, are 10 of my fave undead epics;

Dawn of the Dead

Romero’s best work in my opinion. The follow-up to Night of the Living Dead has everything – action, gore, story and character development. From its opening scene featuring a SWAT team clearing a zombie-infested apartment block, to the somewhat open-ended ending, this is a must see. The 2004 remake is perhaps stylistically better, but then again, it is a remake.


Italian Director, Lucio Fulci’s gorefest is a homage to Romero, and a worthy one at that. Bloody and brutal, but with a tight, fast-paced story line and a few nasty surprises. Where else are you going to see a movie featuring a zombie fighting a shark?

World War Z

The film version of Max Brooks' zombie saga might not be a patch on the book, but it still features some of the most intense zombie action ever seen on screen. The Zs are quick, scary and hyper aggressive and the story is epic in proportion with thousands upon thousands of the creatures loose on the streets. Looking forward to the sequel. 

Day of the Dead

The third of Romero’s classic zombie movies is dark, gruesome and scary. Picking up where
Dawn of the Dead ended it follows a group of people taking shelter in an mine shaft while the dead create havoc above. Perhaps the least popular of Romero’s offerings but a must see for any serious zombie fan.

28 Weeks Later

I know I’m in the minority here but I prefer the sequal to the original. The opening scene is one of the most intense I’ve seen in a zombie movie and the ending is just creepy, with lots of Z action in between.

Shaun of the Dead

A laugh-a-minute take on the Zombie Apocalypse. Shaun and his best friend Ed are two slackers going nowhere fast when the Z’s strike, forcing them to make a stand. Of course they head for the first place you would choose when zombies attack – the local pub!

28 Days Later

A man wakes up from a coma to find London abandoned. He soon realizes that the population has been decimated by a virus that turns them into mindless killing machines. The story lags in places but it’s a good zombie flick nonetheless.  


Another comedic take on the zombie apocalypse. Woody Harrelson plays "Tallahassee" a dedicated zombie killer who guides three young people on a road trip from Texas to California. It's fast and funny with some great Z action and a hilarious cameo appearance by Bill Murray.  

Night of the Living Dead

The original classic from George A. Romero. Personally, I prefer the 1990 remake, but the original deserves its place on the list for shaping the genre.

Dead Alive

Directed by Peter Jackson before he became mega-famous for Lord of the Rings. In this New Zealand production, the hero’s mother is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey. She becomes sick and dies, but of course, rises from the dead to cause mayhem. It’s gory, gruesome and hilarious.

Speak Of The Dead (Zombie D.O.A. Book 10)

Amarillo is behind him and Chris Collins believes he may have evaded Colonel Gareth Stone and the clan of cannibalistic bikers known as The Dead Men. Now, he's arrived at the fortified town of Memphis, Tennessee, where he hopes for some respite and a safe haven for his family.

But things in Memphis are not as peaceful as they seem. First off there's Buzz Talbert, a warped former senator with designs on the Presidency and someone particular in mind as his first lady.

Then there's John Casey Adams, Talbert's former right hand man, now the leader of a band of renegades and cutthroats. And Ty Rydell, a boxer turned soldier torn between his one-time friendship with Chris and his loyalty to Senator Talbert.

And of course there are the zombies, thousands of them, locked behind high fences in downtown Memphis - fences that may not be as secure as they seem. 

Episode 10 of the Zombie D.O.A. series is another twisted post-apocalyptic tale with thrills galore and enough zombie action to keep you awake deep into the night.

Speak Of The Dead

Deadly (Zombie D.O.A. Book 9)

After escaping from a sinister, zombie worshiping cult in Twentynine Palms, California, Chris Collins heads for Flagstaff where he believes he will find safe haven for his family. However, with a zombie army heading up the road after him, the citizens of Flagstaff turn him away.

Forced back out onto the road, Chris is soon pitted against old foes - the Dead Men, a cannibalistic motorcycle gang, still thirsting for revenge after their last encounter. And in Amarillo, Texas, he runs into an old friend from his days in Pagan - Hooley Hoolihan.

Now Chris is pitched into a vicious battle on the streets of Amarillo. Opposing him, Colonel Gareth Stone's zombie army, now forged into a deadly alliance with The Dead Men; at his side, Joe Thursday, Hooley Hoolihan and of course, his daughter Ruby; at stake, the lives of his family and the survival of every human settlement in the west.

Praise for the Zombie D.O.A. Series

I try not to read reviews of my work, really I do. But, like every other insecure writer out there, I have to sneak a peak every once in a while, just to see that I'm hitting the right marks with my audience (at least so I tell myself!). Nonetheless, I've been pleasantly surprised by some of the kind things you've had to say about the Zombie D.O.A. series.

Here are just some of the comments that have put a spring in my step and sent me back to my laptop on days when the words come hard and a cocktail by the pool seems oh so appealing.

I thank you from the bottom of my undead heart.


Excellent and Amazingly Hopeful  *****

This series of books were the best zombie books ever. Action, story and humanity come together to deliver a book I could not put down. The ending was amazing and especially in a zombie book. This is one keeper I look forward to reading again one day. Would love to see another book about Chris and Ruby's reunion too.

Sheena Albright on Amazon.com 


If I could give more stars to this book i would!! This book is just so AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! The story starts off creepy, scary and good, continues, creepy, scary and good and ends creepy, scary and good!! I cant wait to get to the next part which i will start reading as soon as i give this review!! I take my hat off to the author, i give you a standing ovation and say BRAVO!BRAVO!! good job! keep them coming like the first book, creepy, scary and just the right amount of humor!!

Caridad Cruz on Goodreads

DOA Series *****

"Ok so been on this zombie novel kick for over a year now. I have read some really, really good ones, and some really, really bad ones. Approx. 70 zombie novels so far. I dont write reviews and i know i should because there are alot I have liked but wrote nothing on them. JJ Zep suprised me out of nowhere with this zombie series. I bought all four after getting hooked by the sample and am now about to purchase the fifth one. All I can say is the series is simply awesome. I judge a book by wether i can put it down or even want to or not. I did not want to put these down, to go to sleep, or to work. Of course i had to, but eargerly looked forward to getting back to them as soon as possible. When you tell yourself "ok i can get by on 5 hours sleep, and go to work tomorrow" Just because you want to read it for one more hour, then I think its a damn good read Thanks JJ for the awesome time spent in your little world of creativity. I will continue to purchase your work."

Sean Julius on Amazon.com

Unique And Impossible To Put Down *****

"I've been on this "zombie apocalypse" reading kick for the past year or so. I've read about a hundred different books, novellas, and short stories on the subject of a post-apocalyptic earth after our inevitable extinction event goes down. The D.O.A. series was one of my favorites. It has relatable characters, a strong central plot line, and some fun sub-plot events that keep you reading. I ended up reading all 4 books the 1st day I bought the series on kindle. Thanks JJ, keep em coming please."

Hydrophonics on Amazon.com 

I appear to be working my way through everything "zombie" that Amazon has to offer, and I am mildly ashamed at coming to JJ Zep's party late if his prolific bibliography is anything to go by.

"Dead Meat" is an introduction to a wider series ("The D.O.A Series") and serves as an introduction to the writer's style and (I assume) the series as a whole. Zep doesn't disappoint and this is a teaser of the highest order.

Dawn Peers on Goodreads

A Different Kind of Zombie Adventure *****

"I'm not going to write a synopsis, but just say this is a very well crafted tale, the author has a gift in spinning an interesting yet different type of story in a crowded field. Do yourself a favor. Read the book and enjoy a zombie novel with heart and a hero."

Steven Pereira on Amazon.com

Wow! Loved It! *****

I enjoy horror books but have never been a big Zombie fan. This book changed my mind. The pace is breakneck and there is plenty of blood and gore to keep your average Zombie fan satisfied. But unlike many books in the genre, the characters are well constructed you really care about them.

There are some parts that really creeped me out but also some surprisingly tender moments. Add to that a clever plot, the sprinklings of a conspiracy theory, witty dialogue and some laugh out loud moments and you have an instant classic.

Critique on Amazon.com

Once again the author did not disappoint, this book was just as good as all the others before it! jt's an interesting fast read from the start until the end!! Chris Collins and Joe Thursday are my heroes, you can't help but fall in love with these guys, they can be goofy, serious and always on point when it comes to kicking some zombie butt!! At times i do feel like they get lucky a little too much, however the author makes it work. if you love zombies then this is one for you!! enjoy!!

Caridad Cruz on Goodreads


Great Story *****

This is book one of a series of four books. I was glad that I bought all four at the same time because the story in the next book begins right after the last one ends. Normally, I find this distracting because this seems as if the author is just trying to sell more books, but in this series it works. This is a great story in four parts. I wish there were more, as this is an great and fast moving story that will hold your interest.

Maggie on Amazon.com

Awesome / Extreme Zombie Read *****

Woah. So I just finished and this was great, especially the beginning! That had me literally saying WOW. I described the book to my husband and every time he said, geez, I told him "Wait... it gets worse"(well I suppose 'better' in this case!) The only thing I didn't like were the talking zombies, but that's just my own undead preference. Worth the download and ill be waiting for the subsequent sequel.

GingerMass 347 on Amazon.com

The final chapter *****

Sad to think that this is the final book in the D.O.A. series, but what a finish, thousands of zombies under the control of a madman who can unleash hell with the flick of a switch, and the return of the cannibalistic Dead Men biker gang, a group that Hooley has a personal grudge with.

As with the previous books, this picks up right where book 15 finished off with Joe stuck on a rooftop surrounded by zombies, did he survive? I suggest you buy the book and find out for yourself.

This has been a brilliant series to read, and I believe the next series is going to be a spin-off of the D.O.A. series featuring the younger generation (Charlie, Jojo, Ferret and of course Ruby), and one I'm looking forward to reading.

5 Frighteningly Real Ways The World Might End

As an author of post-apocalyptic fiction, destroying the planet is my stock in trade. But could any of the scenarios trotted out in fiction actually happen? Read on to find out, then head for the store and stock up on emergency supplies. Then start digging that bunker in the garden...

Asteroid Strike
An asteroid striking the earth is a premise often examined in fiction, but what would the result of such an impact really be?

This is not a theoretical threat. It’s happened before and there are craters all over the planet to prove it. In fact, the last significant asteroid strike, 65 million years ago, caused the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Any significantly sized asteroid falling from the sky would unleash a tremendous amount of energy. For example, a mile-wide asteroid hitting the earth at 30,000 mph would cause an explosion equal to a 1 million megaton bomb. That's enough to wipe out virtually every living thing on the planet.

An asteroid that big would throw up enough dust to completely block out the sun. Anyone who survived the initial impact would soon perish. And if the asteroid were to land in the ocean it would cause massive tsunamis hundreds of feet high that would devastate coastal cities around the globe.

Nuclear Holocaust
With the end of the Cold War, the threat of a global nuclear war may have receded somewhat, but before we start congratulating ourselves at having dodged the bullet, let's remember that there are at least 20,000 active nuclear weapons remaining, enough to destroy the planet many times over.

And the possibility of malicious use of these weapons has not receded completely. The fear of deployment by a rogue state or terrorist group is very real, but what is even more frightening is a showdown between the US and rising world power, China.

The effects would be devastating. Quite aside from the havoc wrought by these weapons, we'd be facing radiation borne illnesses, nuclear winter and destruction of the ozone layer allowing solar radiation to penetrate our atmosphere.

Global Pandemic
Plagues and pandemics are nothing new. In the 14th century the Black Plague killed half of the Chinese populace before heading west and devastating the population of Europe. In 1918, an outbreak of Spanish Flu wiped out up to 100 million people, or 6% of the world's population.

But surely, with the advances in modern medicine such a pandemic couldn't happen these days? The scary truth is that it could, and perhaps it is even likely. The problem is that viruses and disease causing microbes mutate and become resistant to antibiotics. We've seen this in recent years with the panic caused by avian flu and swine flu, and it wouldn't take much for such a pandemic to spiral out of control.

And quite aside from the risk of a naturally occurring epidemic is the constant threat of biological warfare. Creating killer bugs is cheap and they are easy to produce, conceal and transport. All it would take is one motivated and demented terrorist group. A frightening thought.

Alien Invasion
Think about it, there are billions upon billions of planets in our universe and it is almost impossible to believe that Earth is the only one that houses intelligent life. And as our technology improves, allowing us to look deeper into the universe, our chances of encountering extraterrestrial life increase exponentially.

While we search the skies for them through initiatives like the SETI project, who is to say they aren't looking for us too? And if they find us, what are the chances they'll come in peace and not to colonize Earth or exploit our natural resources.

It is for this reason, that scientists like Stephen Hawking warn against trying to make contact with alien civilizations. They reckon that if a race has the technology to traverse the light years to reach us, they'll also be more than capable of exterminating us.

Volcanic Eruption
When Mount Tambora erupted in Indonesia in 1915, it pumped so much ash into the air that it blocked out the sun, changing the global climate for an entire year. 1816 became known as the year without a summer as temperatures plummeted, crops failed and famine and starvation were widespread.

Now imagine a volcano many times more powerful than Tambora, a super-volcano. There are five of these around the globe, and the biggest of them is sitting right on our doorstep in Yellowstone National Park.

The famous geysers and hot springs are powered by a sea of magma 30 miles wide and another 6 miles deep, and when it blows it will not only devastate North America, but cause every other volcano on the planet to erupt as well causing a global cataclysm that will wipe out everything on the planet.

And the other bad news is that Yellowstone is overdue. It has a cycle of eruption every 600,000 years and now it has now been 640,000 years since it last erupted.
Afraid yet?

Dead And Buried (Zombie D.O.A. Book 8)

13 Horror Movies That Will Scare the Ever Loving C**p Out Of You!

Whether you're a horror buff or just like to have the bejeebers scared out of you on occasion, there are certain horror movies that you must have watched at least once. These are like a badge of honor for fans of the genre so if you've missed any of them, get down to Blockbusters now!

The Exorcist

Watch it with the lights on – at midday! This terrifying story of a young girl possessed by a demon will rob you of your sleep, guaranteed. There’s a very good reason that it tops just about every horror movie poll.

The Shining

Stephen King apparently didn’t like this adaptation of his novel, although I can’t see why. This brooding tale of a man slowly losing his grip on sanity is deeply unsettling. The bathroom scene in Room 237 will scare the life out of you. Watch out too for the famous “Here’s Johnny!” scene. 


Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic pits Sigourney Weaver against one of the most terrifying creatures to grace the screen. The “stomach-buster” scene is the stuff of movie legend.


Other movies may have pre-dated it in the slasher sub-genre, but it was Halloween that really gave the genre its shape. The story of the homicidal, virtually indestructible Michael Myers has been oft copied, but never bettered. He has entered our consciousness as an iconic boogeyman.


It make be dated, and the black-and-white film robs it of some of its gore value, but this Hitchcock classic about the deeply disturbed Norman Bates is still one seriously scary movie. 

Friday the 13th

Some may call it a knock-off of Halloween, but Friday the 13th stands up as a very scary movie in its own right, spawning a hugely successful franchise and giving us yet another terrifying villain - the hockey mask wearing, Jason Voorhees.

Dawn of the Dead

The second of George A. Romero’s classic zombie movies, Dawn of the Dead features a group of survivors hiding from the Zs in a shopping mall. The 2004 remake is perhaps stylishly superior, but the original still tops it in my opinion.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Deeply disturbing, bloody and violent. TCM tells the story of a group of teens who are taken captive by a cannibalistic clan after their van breaks down. Often copied but never bettered.


Is it a horror movie? If it scares you then yes, it is. And Jaws has some genuinely scary moments. The mechanical shark may seem a bit corny given today’s technology but no killer shark movie since has had the same impact. Avoid any of the sequels though.

A Nightmare On Elm Street

In a Nightmare On Elm Street, Wes Craven gave us a unique boogeyman, a homicidal maniac whose name has since entered movie folklore. Freddie Krueger is unlike other movie villains in that he stalks our dreams - and we all have to sleep sometime, right? Frightening and original.

Rosemary’s Baby

Don’t expect scares and buckets of blood in this gem by Roman Polanski. Do expect to leave the movie with a feeling of unease that will stick with you for a long while. Mia Farrow stars as a woman impregnated by the devil.

An American Werewolf in London

Horror and humor collide in this excellent farce about an American student who is attacked by a werewolf while vacationing in England. The werewolf transformation scenes were groundbreaking and still look good after all this time. The humor is dark and hilarious.

Angel Heart

A dark and disturbing story about voodoo in the Deep South. Mickey Rourke stars as Harry Angel, a P.I. hired for what he thinks is a straightforward missing persons case. Bleak and unsettling with a delicious twist at the end.   

Feel free to let me know if you agree or disagree with these choices and add your own in the comments below.

Chill, Kick Back, Kiss Your Ass Goodbye! 13 Songs About The End Of The World

2 Minutes to Midnight – Iron Maiden 

From the band's brilliant 1984 album, Powerslave. The song references the Doomsday Clock - a symbolic clock used by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists to determine how close the world might be to a nuclear holocaust. The clock reached 23:58 (two minutes to midnight) in September 1953, after the US and the Soviet Union both tested H-bombs.

Eve of Destruction – Barry McGuire 

Although several artists have recorded the song, McGuire's version is the best known. The lyrics warn of an imminent apocalypse and reference the Cold War, Vietnam, and the nuclear arms race.

Two Suns In The Sunset – Pink Floyd 

A song about a nuclear holocaust which includes the lyric "the sun is in the east, even though the day is done" (a reference to the gleaming fireball of a nuclear detonation) and ending with the lyric "could it be the human race is run.” Off the band's 1983 release, The Final Cut.

Don’t Fear The Reaper – Blue Oyster Cult 

Not a post-apocalyptic song per se, but it is about the Grim Reaper and its appearance on the soundtrack of ‘The Stand’ makes it a perfect fit for this list.

Black Curtains – Megadeth 

Nuclear war is a recurring theme in Megadeth songs (Symphony of Destruction, Peace Sells, Polaris…Rust In Peace). Black Curtains is a track from their kick ass 1994 album, Youthanasia.

The Four Horsemen – Metallica 

Referencing the biblical Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, this song is featured on Metallica’s album Kill ‘Em All,  released in 1983.

 99 Red Balloons – Nena 

A chirpy upbeat song about a nuclear war triggered when balloons are mistaken for incoming enemy aircraft. The closing lyric, “it’s all over and I’m standing pretty, in the dust that was a city,” leaves no doubt as to the outcome.

The End – The Doors 

Jim Morrison stated that the song might refer to the end of a relationship or the end of childhood, but could really refer to the end of anything. Its inclusion on the soundtrack of Apocalypse Now cements its place on the list.

Talking World War III Blues – Bob Dylan 

The title says it all. This one is from the album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan which also includes ‘A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall’. The lyrics of that song are strongly suggestive of a nuclear holocaust, although Dylan himself says doesn’t necessarily refer to war.

War Pigs – Black Sabbath 

A classic Black Sabbath tune which ends with the lyric, “Now in darkness world stops turning, ashes where the bodies burning. No more war pigs have the power, hand of God has struck the hour.” Say no more.

London Calling – The Clash 

Title track from the band’s 1979 album, the lyrics reference several doomsday scenarios including flooding and nuclear meltdown. The title comes from the BBC World Service's wartime station identification: "This is London calling."

Gimme Shelter – The Rolling Stones 

A Stones classic that Mick Jagger described as "A kind of end-of-the-world song, really. It's the apocalypse." With lyrics that talk of fire sweeping the streets, war children, rape and murder, it’s hard to disagree.

Metal Gods – Judas Priest 

From the classic 1980 album, British Steel. Metal Gods tells the story of machines taking over the world, and ends on the lyric, “Better be the slaves, to their wicked ways, but meeting with our death, engulfed in molten breath.”

As the human inhabitants of those settlements are thrown into a desperate fight for survival, Chris, Joe and Ruby must face up to the might of the Corporation, while also taking on hordes of ravenous zombies, repulsive cannibal gangs, ruthless road bandits and strange, zombie worshiping cults.

And then there's Colonel Stone and his band of rage zombies. Infected with the Z virus, Stone desperately hangs onto his humanity by taking copious amounts of an experimental drug. His mission? To destroy Chris Collins and Joe Thursday.

Series Four

Chris Collins thought that the fortified camp of Manhattan would be a safe haven for him and his family, and it was, for a time. But in California, in New Jersey, in Manhattan itself, there are forces at work that are about to throw Chris's life into chaos once more.

First there are the ruthless politicians running Manhattan, willing to trade human lives for votes in an ambitious scheme to claim back zombie-infested territories. Then there's the Pendragon Corporation, determined to take control of New York by any means possible. And then there's Marin Scolfield, a psychopathic scientist with the power to control the Zs and a burning obsession to create an army of sentient, hyper-aggressive zombies.

Follow Chris from the frozen expanses of Staten Island to the blazing inferno of Manhattan as he battles cannibalistic bikers, trigger happy soldiers, bizarre "zombstrosities," a double-dealing doctor, a beautiful but duplicitous Corporation agent and a half-Z military commander. Not to mention the zombies, thousands upon thousands of zombies.
