Event Preview: Jonathan Maberry and Jeyn Roberts

Join us for a post-apocalyptic evening with Jonathan Maberry and Jeyn Roberts!


In the Rot and Ruin series, Maberry explores the world of Benny Imura, a fifteen-year-old boy living fourteen years after the zombie outbreak that wiped out most of the population and left the world's infrastructure in shambles.  Benny lives in the fortified town of Mountainside in the shadow of his older brother, Tom, a renowned bounty hunter.  When he reluctantly agrees to apprentice with Tom, Benny gets a look at life outside the fence and realizes good and evil might not be as black and white as he thought and that there might be something even more dangerous than zombies lurking in the woods.

Rot and Ruin and Dust and Decay are now available in paperback and hardcover, while the latest in the series, Flesh and Bone, came out in hardcover on September 11th.  All will be available for purchase at the event.

In Roberts's Dark Inside series, a ragtag group of teen survivors find themselves fighting a different sort of monster. In the aftermath of a series of devastating earthquakes felt around the world, it soon became clear that an evil had been unleashed.  All over, people were giving in to their darkest impulses, slaughtering innocents in mass executions and ruthlessly hunting down those who managed to escape.  The novels' split narrative follows four teens seeking a safe haven and one of the ruthless killers battling for control of his own mind.

Dark Inside is now available in hardcover and paperback while its sequel, Rage Within, was released in hardcover on September 4th.  Both will be available for purchase at the event.

Jonathan Maberry and Jeyn Roberts will discuss, read from and sign their books at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19, at Left Bank Books--Central West End.  If you can't make it to the event, you can order signed, personalized copies by calling the store at 314-367-6731, ext. 1.
