As I’ve mentioned in the past, The Hunger is a sci-fi/horror book, and my longest full-length novel to date at 100,000 words. It’s the first in a planned series, which will gradually release over 2014 and 2015. Fans of Dead Days, as well as my other stuff, are going to love it.
Here’s the blurb in case you missed it:
Jonny Ainsthwaite is dying.
At twenty-three years old, he should have a full life ahead of him.
Instead, he has HIV, and his immune system is growing weaker by the day.
But hidden away in a gigantic pharmaceutical lab, Sarah Appleton has discovered something big. Something that will change humanity forever. Something that will see her name etched into the history books. Something that will save lives around the world for decades and centuries to come. In principle.
What she doesn’t realise is that she has created the end of the world.
But she’s about to find out.
Everyone is about to find out.
And when they do, there is no resisting The Hunger…
Defying genre conventions, The Hunger is the first part of an epic trilogy chronicling the downfall of humanity. A unique twist on the zombie apocalypse and vampire formula, Ryan Casey transports readers to a world of misguided greed and dreams turned to nightmares. Drawing comparisons to The Passage and the works of Stephen King, The Hunger is a suspense horror that will leave the reader’s stomach suitably nourished, but churning for more…
Of course, if you were subscribed to my newsletter, you’d have got wind of The Hunger’s release waaaay back last Thursday. You’d have also got a discount too.

If you enjoy The Hunger, it’d be really cool if you left a review for it at Amazon. Or failing that, if you enjoy it, just tell a friend about it. Word of mouth goes a long way!
Okay — that’s just about all from me today. Just wanted to let you in on this book launch. I’m actually hard at work on the Dead Days Season Two rewrites at the moments. Season Two is a lot of fun. There’s a whole different mood and atmosphere about it that just builds and builds then… BOOM. But yeah. More on that over the next few weeks. Full launch this April.
I’ll be back later this week with my full updated release calendar for 2014 so you can keep up to date.
Cheers, and enjoy,
