Mark Tufo has moved from Zombies and vampires to demons and creatures of the underworld in Demon Fallout – The Return. Talbot’s adopted son and vampire, Tommy gets a message to Talbot –  he’s in desperate need of help.  Talbot, a loyal friend and one who holds nothing else above family rushes to his aid crossing into the underworld of demons.  We are introduced to new characters and see the return of old ones as well as crossing over into other realms of Tufo – Talbot vs Timothy (the deadly flesh-eating zombie clown)!

Tufo is not one to rest on his tried and true writing style, this book shakes the world of Talbot and his readers into gut-wrenching moments that will leave you gasping and shocked! It has the Talbot humor and Talbot charm but the twist is quick, unexpected and well done; the reader has no opportunity to regain their balance period!  Imagine, if you will, being sideswiped by a semi driven by a cab full of Elves on the Shelf with crazy demonic eyes and maniacal laughter that appears out of nowhere – that is what this book is like!

Sean Runnette, once again performed the book superbly.  I cannot hear Runnette in anything else without connecting him to Michael Talbot first.  He IS the perfect voice for Michael Talbot.

Loved the book and while I am still reeling from it, this was perfect!

There were no issues with the production or audio quality of this book.

About Sean Runnette

ABR interviewed Sean here

Sean Runnette has earned two Audie nominations and five Earphones Awards for his narration. He has also directed and produced more than 200 audiobooks including several Audie Award winners. He has toured the US and internationally with The American Repertory Theater and Mabou Mines, as well as appearing in Two if by Sea, Copland, Sex and the City, Law and Order and 3rd Watch. He lives, unapologetically, in New Jersey.

The stuff that fits in between the lines:
I’ve been married for 13 years to the girl I first fell in love with when I was 19 years old. Which should make me 32, but somehow I’m closing in on 50. Go figure. We have a dog and a cat, live in a witness protection program style townhouse on the edge of farmland in NJ and don’t miss living in NYC.
I was raised mostly in California. Initially in Mill Valley and finally in LA. I went to Los Angeles Community College, realized I enjoyed acting, moved to SF (where I met my future wife) then moved again to Cambridge for more schoolin’. Then it was off to NY, where I did many, many plays in small rooms with and for swell folks. After a while the rooms got bigger and the people less fun. After a while hearing 100 no’s to every yes got to be too much, so I opted for sanity. Which is audiobooks. Still nutty, but much more civil.
I record in our basement, make holes in sheetrock and call it home repair, and train.

About Mark Tufo

Mark Tufo is the creator of the Zombie Fallout series, which feature everyman hero Mike Talbot.

Mark Tufo was born in Boston Massachusetts. He attended UMASS Amherst where he obtained a BA and later joined the US Marine Corp. He was stationed at Parris Island SC, Twenty Nine Palms CA, and Kaneohe Bay HI.

After his tour of duty, he went into the Human Resources field with a worldwide financial institution and has since gone back to college at CTU to complete his Masters.

He wrote the first installment of the Indian Hill Trilogy whilst in college. This manuscript was stored in his garage until July 2009, when he published it on Kindle at his wife’s insistence.

At the time of this writing, Mark has since written the extremely popular Zombie Fallout series comprised of six serial novels, one prequel novella (Dr. Hugh Mann), and a related side story following the plague from the point of view of a zombie retaining human sentience (Timothy); two additional installments of the popular Indian Hill series; a metaphysical horror novel (The Spirit Clearing); two books following the trials of domesticated pets in the time of a zombie plague (The Book of Riley 1 & 2); a young adult version of Indian Hill entitled The Ravin (with a YA version of Indian Hill 2 scheduled for release in 2013); and a contribution to a compilation of zombie short stories (Undead Tales).

Mark’s books are generally written in a first person narrative style and crossover into several genres including horror, science fiction, and comedy. All of his books make some reference to the recurring semi-autobiographical character Michael Talbot and usually include some interesting insights into the real history of this unique author.

Mark Tufo lives in Maine with his wife, three kids and two English bulldogs.

As of September 2012, Mark’s first film, Zombie Fallout is in pre-production with Illuminandi Media.
