Journey to Bruges begins

The journey to Bruges will take 4 days. It may be fraught with peril as the unmentionables have roamed the fields and surrounding lands for the last two years.

Our valiant knights will keep us safe. But we must arm ourselves as well.


Behold, there behind that bush!

Zombie Cinderella
(Zombie Fairy Tales #1)
by Kevin Richey

On the day her father is buried, Cinderella's stepmother forces her to wait upon her ugly stepsisters as they prepare for a frivolous ball. Poor Cinderella is literally worked to death by her in-laws, and left to die alone in the cinders. But thanks to an infection from a mysterious old woman, Cinderella is granted a chance for revenge. Soon, it will be midnight, and everyone will be washing floors—with blood.


AHHHHHHHH, by that tree!

Hansel and Gretel Are Dead
(Zombie Fairy Tales #2)
by Kevin Richey

After being infected by the zombie pestilence, Hansel and Gretel are left to die in the woods. Sick and hungry, they find their way to the home of a lonely old woman who happens to be a cannibal. But when Hansel and Gretel refuse to stay dead, the old hag finds she may have bitten off more than she can chew.


Eeeeeeek, shuffling down the road!

The Zombie Pinocchio
(Zombie Fairy Tales #3)
by Kevin Richey

The gentle but lonely toymaker Geppetto builds the perfect companion from the corpses of children: a son who will never die. But when his creation revolts and begins a campaign of debauchery and murder upon the town's children, he fears he may have unleashed a force of evil beyond his control—The Zombie Pinocchio.


WATCH out, one more is rising out of the ground today!

Blood Red Riding Hood
(Zombie Fairy Tales #4)
by Kevin Richey

After zombie wolves attack one of her admirers, Red Riding Hood fears the woods may never be safe again. But when the man returns from the wolves' clutches with deadly new appetites, she must take a dark new path to reach her grandmother's house—a path drenched with blood.


About Zombie Fairy Tales:

The Zombie Pinocchio is the third in a monthly series of short stories set in a dark fairy tale universe plagued by zombies. Surreal and full of black humor, installments feature familiar childhood characters as they encounter a world of stark violence and horror—Cinderella is worked to death before the ball, Pinocchio is made from children's corpses, and Little Red Riding Hood finds more than wolves in the forest.

New titles will appear on the 13th of each month throughout 2012. The series features overlapping elements, characters, and places for a more immersive experience for the dedicated fan, but can also be read as stand-alone entries in any order.

  1. I want to read them all, but will start with book 1, Zombie Cinderella.

    Kevin, where did you get the idea for zombie fairytales??!/fredalicious/status/190810052288983040

  2. Omg ... zombie fairy tales YESSSSSSSSSS!! :D
    I'd love to read them all, but especially Zombie Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel are Dead
    heh heh heh

    I have a question for Kevin:
    Do you plan to *zombie-fy* Rumplestiltskin, or is that just wishful thinking on my part ? lol

  3. PS ... ONE of these daze I'll get a twitter acct so I can do all this tweeting stuff, too ;D

  4. I would like to start with the first book, so Zombie Cinderella!

    Kevin, how did you go about picking which fairytales you would "zombie-fy" first?


    email: doodlesbookblog at gmail dot com

  5. Zombie Cinderella is for me!

    Kevin, what is your favorite thing about zombies? Specifically, it's obvious you love them, but why do you love them?



  6. LOL I love it zombie fairy tales!!!! I think I also will start with Cinderella. It was my favorite fairy tale to watch when I was sick. Are you going to be doing 12 fairy tales or more?

  7. I would love the Blood Red Riding Hood story these look way fun, I'm not way into horror stuff so it will be interesting to see if I like these.

  8. Oooohhh, I'd love to read Zombie Pinocchio! These are really interesting. I'd like to ask who did the cover art because all of them are gorgeous! My email would be tomakunisnumberone at gmail dot com :D

  9. I would love to have the Blood Red Riding Hood!

  10. I'd love Zombie Cinderella :)


  11. I would love to read Hansel and Gretal are dead. prettyhaydengurl at yahoo dot com. It looks really good.

    What made the author want to add such sinister plots to happy stories.

  12. I would love to read them all, but I am especially drawn to Blood Red Riding Hood. I just caught the post with the questions answered by the author so I know I am a little late, but I'm interested in finding out if all the stories are interconnected or linked in anyway? If so would it be horrible if they are read out of order?

    Also I tweeted the giveaway!!/AimeeLaValle/status/198662576232607744
