    Now back in print—the riveting mix of horror and social commentary and the visionary zombie cult classicDawn of the Dead by the revered “Grandfather of all Zombies,” author and film director George A. Romero.A decade after the premiere of the 1968 film The Night of the Living Dead, George Romero returned with its sequel,Dawn of the Dead, which tore its way onto movie screens across the country, shocked an entire generation, and became an instant zombie classic as the highest grossing indie film of all time. Shortly thereafter, Romero, along with author Susanna Sparrow, wrote a novel based on the movie—now back in print in this terrifying trade paperback edition.In one of the landmark tales of the zombie apocalypse, a handful of survivors seek refuge at a local shopping mall, barricading themselves in. They soon realize that this is the perfect place to wait out the end of the world, and despite pending doom, they even start to enjoy themselves. But it doesn’t take long for the undead to find a way into their world…Named one of the “500 Greatest Movies of All Time” by Empire Magazine, the originalDawn of the Dead film has left its imprint on viewers for decades—and will soon be re-released in theaters, having been transformed frame-by-frame into 3D for an entire new audience. Now readers can experience the same chills and thrills with this exciting reissue of a true classic.© 1978 Dawn Associates, © 2014 The MKR Group, Inc.

    The unique life story of one of the most talented and inventive comedians, star of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul, Spaced, and Star Trek. Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise -- actor, comedian, writer, and supergeek Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows. Having landed on the U.S. movie scene in the surprise cult hit Shaun of the Dead, his enduring appeal and rise to movie stardom has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronic, but mostly just plain great.From his childhood (and subsequently adult) obsession with science fiction, his enduring friendship with Nick Frost, and his forays into stand-up comedy, which began with his regular Monday-morning slot in front of his twelve-year-old classmates, Simon has always had a severe and dangerous case of the funnies.Whether recounting his experience working as a lifeguard at the city pool, going to Comic-Con for the first time and confessing to Carrie Fisher that he used to kiss her picture every night before he went to sleep, or meeting and working with heroes that include Peter Jackson, Kevin Smith, and Quentin Tarantino, Pegg offers a hilarious look at the journey to becoming an international superstar.
