The war is over...The Vampires have won.

“ incredibly original" -Horror-web. “Action from beginning to end.....I am shocked by how much I enjoyed this story” -Horrorworld. “For those who like their vampires tough and truly terrifying” -Fear Zone

“Derek Gunn didn’t reinvent the vampire novel. Instead he stripped it back to its roots, in the process tearing away the pretensions other writers have used to humanize the fabled bloodsucking monster. His books are not comforting paranormal romances; they are violent and visceral supernatural thrillers.”
International Thriller Writers’ Association

"... Derek Gunn's novel certainly gives the Vampire genre a much needed kick in the teeth, so we can't say we're surprised to see that tinsel town has caught on to the story's potential to wow genre fans looking to mix a little action with their horror."
-Quiet Earth

“Forget the vampire books where the creatures are romantic and dreamy. The blood suckers in Vampire Apocalypse are monstrous and a nightmare. Derek Gunn’s original vision of a future dominated by the undead will have you quickly turning each blood soaked page!”
-Richard Finney, Producer, Screenwriter

Escape is not an option...

I want to immediately read a sequel and grab popcorn for the big screen movie adaption! This book is a definite recommendation for any fan of the horror and zombie subgenre as well as Gunn’s magnificent and adventurous writing style that will grab your bloody beating heart and never let go!" -Fangoria

"some great action sequences, particularly towards the end of the novel. Gunn is able to write tension-filled scenes that kept me turning the pages. Gunn has created some very frightening monsters" -Fatally

"Gunn does an admirable job of characterization...The fast pace and substantial gore makes each page a pleasure, and readers will no doubt fall in love with the heroic characters that populate the novel." -Dark Scribe Magazine

"The Estuary, not your average Zombie Novel. Thank God! Derek Gunn gets it right with this novel of horror."

What's New for June at

I've posted a new WHAT'S NEW FOR JUNE page at my website- you can view it HERE

I've added a new FEATURES page to the site which gives links to my non-fiction writing - a series of features on and interviews with international thriller writers which I do on a monthly basis as part of my duties as a contributing editor with The International Thriller Writers Association.

Also, I've put up a taster of the book I'm currently working on called THE GATEKEEPER

The Kindle edition of FALLOUT, the third Vampire Apocalypse book, is now available for sale at Amazon. Now all three Vampire Apocalypse books are published in paperback, kindle editions and multiple ebook formats.
