Meet Matt Richter. Private Eye. Zombie.

His mean streets are the city of the dead, the shadowy realm known as Nekropolis.

This place has always been ruled by the vampire lords.

Now they’re planning to destroy the city.

Over his dead body.

More pulp than Pulp Fiction, more butt-kicking than Buffy, Nekropolis is the first in a deathly new series.

Review:

“Vivid description and characterization, as well as a complex, intricately crafted setting reminiscent of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter universe, keep the pages turning at a rapid rate... Both horror and mystery readers will be delighted by this horror-noir adventure.”
- Publishers Weekly - Starred Review

"It's hard to say if this singular novel, which boasts a wicked sense of humour to round off the horror, should be eligible for an Edgar Award or a Bram Stoker, or both."
- Elliot Swanson, Booklist

"[Nekropolis] is an atmospheric and exciting mystery."
- SF Site

"It's a classic. Sam Spade, watch out. There's a slow-footed zombie creeping up on you!"
- Bewildering Stories

"Fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, fans of noir detective stories and fans of the just plain weird, rejoice! ... Nekropolis is something to pick up if you are in the mood for something different and fun."
- SF Revu

"It's fresh and fun; and I didn't want it to end. Fantasy and horror fans, don't miss this fantastic release."
- SciFi Chick

"An up-and-comer who's worthy of the hype... Tim Waggoner is well on his way to being proclaimed horror fiction's leading surrealist."
- Cemetery Dance
