Unless that neighbor is the grumpy, armed and retired Green Beret Gilbert Donohue. In that case, finding out you've got a neighbor is a lot like hitting the proverbial jackpot. Adrian's piecemeal life on campus since "That Day" has been a struggle. Retrieving supplies from local neighborhoods filled with the walking dead has been dangerous for him, but he's stayed alive by being a little smarter than the other survivors, and a lot faster than the roaming, hungry zombies that have overtaken his home town, and the world.
In Alone No More, the second installment in the smash hit series Adrian's Undead Diary, Adrian's life is poised to become even more complicated and dangerous when some familiar faces find their way to ALPA with some less than friendly folks on their tail. For the first time the breadth of Adrian's Apocalypse widens to reveal the death of one of the oldest cities of mankind in one of the most popular of all the AUD short stories: Jerusalem.
Sometimes in the cold of winter, the only thing that can keep you warm is freshly spilled blood.
Alone No More is the second entry in the AUD series, and covers Adrian's journal entries from December 3rd 2010 through December 27th 2010. Intermingled with his personal diary entries Alone No More also contains five short stories. One Mistake: The Last Stand of Hall B, Putting a Name to a Face, Exodus, Jerusalem, and The Chief.
Adrian Ring and his inner circle of survivors heads south through the German ruins after the Navy frigate he and his friends sailed on is eaten alive inside out by an infestation of the dead. Wracked with grief over the death of his brother, they make their way through the winter snow until they are bogged down, eventually taking up residence in a secluded farm.
But not far away there's a enclave of survivors, and while everything seems fine on the surface... they might have ulterior motives for their alliance. They might want to stop Adrian, or they might want to ferret out the demon hiding in his midst.
Either way, this apocalyptic adventure will see evil unleashed in a way never seen before.
The Lost & the Found contains Adrian's journal entries from January 4th, 2015 through March 2nd, 2015. It also contains the short stories Meow, Bitch, as well as Tactical Septic Tank, The Peacemaker, Vulnerable, and Only Bad Choices.
Book Five: Wrath
Good and evil play their game to determine whether humanity gets a second chance, and their pawns are the living and the dead.
Book Six: In the Arms of Family
Adrian Ring and evil don't get along. When he can't be corrupted, turned, or forced to give up, evil targets those around him, including the family he had thought was dead.
Book Seven: The Trinity
A full year of blood and tears has passed for Adrian Ring. As the dead remain hateful, the living are more desperate than ever: winter approaches and supplies are dwindling. Meanwhile, the conflict with the monsters at the Factory is reaching a boiling point.
Book Eight: Cassie
One last test.
One last quest.
Adrian and the men and women who love him head deep into the city in search of the one thing that may save Adrian's soul, and the entire world.

Diggory Finch had a mother that didn’t seem to want him, and a father that chose to run from every struggle the family ever had. Same father lied about the family fortune.
But now Grandma Beatrice is gone, and Diggory has inherited Finch Island in Twin Falls, as well as millions of dollars, a house, an old mill building, and the profound, evil darkness that dwells at the center of his family’s heart.
Diggory returns home, happy and comfortable for the first time in a home that’s not going anywhere, and starts the process of opening up a game store on his family’s property. He even meets a young lady that makes him want to stop sabotaging his relationships. Could it be love?
Or will the horror that unfolds undo all he’s ever wanted?
The Finch family is surrounded by people who want something from them. They want the dark power that Diggory has access to. They want the doorway only he can open to remain open forever, and if they have to lock him up so the ancient evil he can access can always flow to them, then so be it.
But for the first time, this Finch isn’t running, and isn’t content to be used to unleash evil on the world.
Can Diggory harness the great darkness within him, and defeat the monsters that feast on the people of Twin Falls, or will he lose control, and put the entire world at risk?
Twin Falls; a modern day Lovecraftian universe of ancient, eldritch evils, manipulative sects, and a wise-cracking young man that's just sick of being used, abused, and more than a little self-destructive. It's on like Donkey Kong.
Tesser the dragon of life itself, is one seven; Earth’s primordial draconic guardians, destined to oversee its development, and safety. Species rose, and fell, and one day, ten thousand years ago… Tesser disappeared. The golden dragon woke up this morning, buried deep beneath the city of Boston, with no idea how he got there, and no idea how humanity grew so fast, and learned so much while he was away. He is lost; a fish out of water, with no contact with his brothers and sister, or any idea of what threatens his home.
Where are the faeries? Where are the Minotaur, and unicorns? Where are the selkies and all the creatures he fostered, and loved? Where is the magic?
He’s got a lot of catching up to do if he’s going to find his missing sister Kaula, and stop an incursion of daemons from beyond the Veil. Learning English from watching Kevin Smith movies at a coffee shop is probably not his best first step, but not all heroes get handed a cape.
Welcome to The Reemergence.

That's what The Tales from the World of Adrian's Undead Diary is all about; more stories from his world. More triumph and tragedy in a world overrun by a zombie plague. Happy stories, sad stories, scary stories, gory stories, really weird stories and more.
We have zombies stuck in swings, dogs protecting their families, truck drivers surviving the end of the world, a porn store that's repurposed into an armory, terror on a flight at 30,000 feet and the capers of idiot criminals trying to take advantage of undead wandering the streets and devouring the flesh of the populace.
Contained within this Kindle-only omnibus are the first six releases in the Tales series: Unhappy Endings, London Burns, Only the Light We Make, The Shed, An Ill Wind, The Other Side, and Dead Lucky.

MacDonald, Phillip Tomasso, Joe Tremblay, Adam Carpenter, and Rich Restucci, as well as a large excerpt from Carl Meadow's No More Heroes, from his AUD canon trilogy Lockey vs the Apocalypse.
So please join us in this collection, and flesh out the core Adrian's Undead Diary universe in a delightful fashion.
Clinging to what’s left of his tattered soul, he must assemble a small team to bring across the Atlantic aboard one of the few still-operational US Navy frigates. There, he is reunited with his lost brother William.
The battle ahead is ominous enough, but the journey might kill him before he sets foot on European soil. He must battle the wills of those who will be left behind at Bastion, The Factory, Spring Meadows and MGR, plus ensure a proper transition of power.
He must wage a war of wills against a rag-tag Navy crew who sees him as a self-proclaimed savior, and against a captain who is at odd with his risk-taking, bold nature.
The zombies might be the least of his problems.
No God contains Adrian’s Journal entries from July 4th, 2014 through Sept. 3rd, 2014. It also contains the side fictions; A Man of God, The Cleaving, I Can See Clearly Now, and The A Game.
Whole worlds are lost. Others are sacrificed. Thousands are ready to fight, but millions more offer themselves up to the gods, praying that The Rapture will bring them salvation. In the midst of it all just a handful of survivors scattered across the multiverse are aware of what’s at stake and how they can avoid Armageddon. But with the odds stacked against them and impossible distances between them, will they be able to come together and turn the bloody tide against THE BLEED?
IT ALWAYS BLEEDS THROUGH. THREE WORLDS. THREE AUTHORS. THE MOTHER OF ALL APOCALYPSES.
Old saying, sure, but boy is it true when it comes to Adrian Ring’s zombie apocalypse. Welcome to Dead Lucky; an anthology of twelve tales set in the world of Adrian’s Undead Diary.
With stories by:
And three stories written by Chris Philbrook.
Each of these clever tales revolves around the sudden appearance of luck, or a distinct lack thereof. From getting trapped in a porn store to being dragged out of your peaceful existence into a world of violence and evil, each of these stories adds to the canon of AUD.
Foreword written by Jeffrey Clare, founder and owner of All Things Zombie, and All Things Apocalyptic.

The moon: sometime in the future.
A covert mission to colonize the moon is Earth’s last chance. The mission is going well, until the brand-new technology used to operate the colony begins failing mysteriously. Will the survivors of Earth’s civil war be caught up in a larger conflict they couldn’t ever know anything about?
Another world: another time.
The gods of this world left to fight the Bleed. The war raged on the horizon, at the very edge of this reality. One morning there are screams at the shore and the red tide arrives. The war against the monsters of the Bleed is no longer forgotten history, it’s happening now.
