Welcome to the Z-Risen site

When the USS McClusky (FFG-41) was overrun by the dead Machinist Mate First Class Jackson Creed, and Marine Sergeant Joel “Cruze” Kelly, were forced to abandon the ship, and take their chances in San Diego.

Now they are stuck in a city that has been completely overrun with zombies and as the days go by they must range farther and farther away from ‘fortress’ in their search for supplies. Relying on military training, guts, and pure force of will, the two of them will face a nightmare world that is intent on killing them one bite at a time.

Z-Risen was written by Timothy W. Long author of the zombie novels AMONG THE LIVING, AMONG THE DEAD, and the military themed BEYOND THE BARRIERS, all published by Permuted Press.

Be sure to stop by for new chapters.

      The .mobi files were buggy. I’ll fix them and get them uploaded again as soon as I have some time to devote. Hang in there.

    Hey Tim,

    When is the estimated time of when your going to put book 3 out? I’m dying to find out what happens to Creed’s love interest, I feel I read into something that your making us wait for. Hope it doesn’t take to long. Thanks

    I read both the Z-Risen books Outbreak and Outcasts and loved them both. I am sure you are asked this question a lot but when will the next book in the series be released to the public? I just want to know how long I have to remain patient because when it comes to a really good story line I don’t do patient well. Seriously, those were two good books!
