LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT'S TIME TO REALLY MEET THE BEATLES.

For John Lennon, a young, idealistic zombie guitarist with dreams of global domination, Liverpool seems the ideal place to form a band that could take over the world. In an inspired act, Lennon kills and reanimates local rocker Paul McCartney, kicking off an unstoppable partnership. With the addition of newly zombified guitarist George Harrison and drummer/Seventh Level Ninja Lord Ringo Starr, the Beatles soon cut a swath of bloody good music and bloody violent mayhem across Europe, America, and the entire planet.

In this searing oral history, discover how the Fab Four climbed to the Toppermost of the Poppermost while stealing the hearts, ears, and brains of smitten teenage girls. Learn the tale behind a spiritual journey that resulted in the dismemberment of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Marvel at the seemingly indestructible quartet’s survival of a fierce attack by Eighth Level Ninja Lord Yoko Ono. And find out how the boys escaped eternal death at the hands of England’s greatest zombie hunter, Mick Jagger.

Through all this, one mystery remains: Can the Beatles sublimate their hunger for gray matter, remain on top of the charts, and stay together for all eternity? After all, three of the Fab Four are zombies, and zombies live forever. . . .

Firm leaders are dying, being taken out by an unknown enemy. The epidemic created by greedy corporations has grown out of control and the world is now a zombie utopia.
Ally Lane wakes up aboard a cargo ship dazed and confused. She has survived the explosion of the Betty Loo only to discover she's in more danger than ever. The captain has a hold full of zombies and the doctor on board is out for himself. The reality of what is happening hits her when she sees a map of the infected areas. 

Armed with the truth, Ally must find a way to let as many people know what is really going on. She runs into a snag when the captain betrays her, turning her over to an enemy from a past she'd rather not remember. Mark Richards, the man responsible for who she is, takes her to his compound. She ignores his attempts at talking, the anger inside bubbling over when she realizes he is the one responsible for the death of all her friends and her fiancé, Marcus, on the Betty Loo. She fights her way free, only to find herself in the middle of hell. Charlie Myers, a former friend turned enemy from her past shows up and with the help of him and his men they escape.

Ally doesn’t know who to trust, but has to play the game long enough to stay alive, figure out what's happening, and get a message out to those left.

Joseph Erdman is the head of the Israeli Firm, but abandons his post when the undead close in. He heads for America and the one person who can help him, Ally. In a remote location, several forces collide and Ally must side with former enemies and turn her back on friends in order to save what's left of the world.  Joseph has a plan, but he doesn’t share all of the details.
While Ally and a team of mercenaries try to get him to the Old House so he can claim the Presidency and give people guidance in the time of crisis, another foe is heading directly for them. Ally finds the Old House and another structure where men in uniforms are taking a stand. Joseph has gone missing and her opportunities to broadcast the truth are gone. She knows nuclear weapons were part of the plan and decides to get to them first.

From New York Times bestseller and Hugo Award-winner John Scalzi, a wild-and-woolly caper novel of interstellar diplomacy

A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most . . . unusual . . . way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: a type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony.

To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinare, who, with the help of a childhood friend turned artificial intelligence, scours the earth looking for the rare creature.
But there are others with plans for the sheep as well. Mercenaries employed by the military. Adherents of a secret religion based on the writings of a 21st century SF author. And alien races, eager to start a revolution on their home world and a war on Earth.

To keep our planet from being enslaved, Harry will have to pull off a grand diplomatic coup, a gambit that will take him from the halls of power to the lava-strewn battlefields of alien worlds. There's only one chance to get it right, to save the life of the sheep—and to protect the future of humanity.
