When there were still people around to talk to, I would introduce myself as a drinker with a writing problem. It sounded witty at the time, and certainly got a smile once in a while from the ladies. None of that matters now. There are no people left to read my books, and nobody left to listen to my attempts at wit. Now it�s just me and my notebook, sitting in my house on the hill, watching the undead rampage through what we humans once called our world. I sometimes wonder why I still live when those much younger, stronger, smarter and fitter than me perished. Maybe it�s just dumb luck. But maybe I am being left alive for a purpose. Nobody may have cared much for my novel, but maybe this is what I was meant to write. Maybe this is what I was meant to be. The chronicler of the undead. This is my story.
About the Author
Mainak Dhar is a cubicle dweller by day and author by night. His first 'published' work was a stapled collection of Maths solutions and poems (he figured nobody would pay just for his poems) which he sold to his classmates in Grade 7, and spent the proceeds on ice cream and comics. Since then, he has gone on to be a bestselling author, momentarily becoming the #1 Horror author on Amazon in March 2013, surpassing Stephen King. He has seventeen books to his credit, including the bestselling Alice in Deadland series, which is being made into a television series in the United States.
