Video - Hater by David Moody

I’ve noticed Hater receiving a lot of buzz about the book blogosphere and so when I was asked to be part of the viral video campaign for the launch I thought – sounds like fun! I‘ve mentioned before I love apocalyptic style stories and this seems to have all the essential elements.



Here’s a little more background on the book -

David Moody self - published Hater online in 2006. Without an agent, he succeeded in selling the film rights to Guillermo del Toro (director, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy 1 & 2, and the upcoming Hobbit series) and Mark Johnson (producer, The Chronicles of Narnia). With the official publication of Hater (2/17/2009), David is poised to make a significant mark as a writer of “farther out” fiction of all varieties.

In the tradition of H. G. Wells and Richard Matheson, Hater is one man’s story of his place in a world gone mad— a world infected with fear, violence, and HATE. www.RUaHater.com

HATER
(February 17, 2009)Official David Moody Website
Read the first and second chapters.
A man stops in fear and terror in a city crowd and suddenly lunges at a complete stranger, stabbing her to death with the end of his umbrella. A teenage girl stares at her best friend in frightened loathing and without warning, kills her. Seemingly without provocation a man strangles his wife of more than thirty years, with his bathrobe sash. Called “Haters” by the media, these attackers strike without warning in an escalating crescendo of inexplicable violence. In seconds, rational, normal people become remorseless killers. Anyone—or everyone— can become a victim—or a Hater.

When mortal terror roams abroad—what happens to a society? When neighbor fears neighbor, when no one knows whether he may be killed or become a killer—who is safe? And who can be trusted?

  1. I read one of his zombie books, I wouldn't read a whole series but he's a good writer, it was one of the better zombie books i've read. I am interested in giving Hater a try.

  2. Zombie books are good and I like movies like 28 Days After. This should be good as a book and film.
