Generation Dead news

If you don’t know, Daniel Waters‘s Generation Dead and its sequels, Kiss of Life and Passing Strange are wonderful YA novels about teenagers who return from the dead and struggle to find autonomy and love. They’re brilliantly written, full of wit and very moving, and have subtle political arguments woven into them. We’ve been in love with Dan’s books since the beginning of the OGOM Project; in fact, ‘Open Graves. Open Minds’ comes from the novels. But not only have these been re-released with new covers, two more books in the series have been announced: My Best Friends are Dead (due this summer) and Get Animated (next year). And Waters has also had a short story anthologised in Borderlands 6. All this is on the Daniel Waters blog, linked to above, Exciting!
