David Wellington is the author of seven novels. His zombie novels 'Monster Island', 'Monster Nation' and 'Monster Planet' form a complete trilogy. He has also written a series of vampire novels. In 2004 he began serializing his horror fiction online, posting short chapters of a novel three times a week on a friend's blog. Response to the project was so great that in 2004 Thunder's Mouth Press approached Mr. Wellington about publishing 'Monster Island' as a print book. His novels have been featured in Rue Morgue, Fangoria, and the New York Times.
