  • The reviews for the Winchestster Undead Series keep pouring in

    Oh my god!!! Dave Lund kept me reading nonstop!

    It took me less than three days to to read both books, and now feel like a book stalker looking for book 3 about 2 times a week. Just so you know Mr. Lund we are waiting and watching for Winchester, so please don’t take a vacation and leave us wondering.

    Great exciting sequel!

    No, NO I want more. What a fantastic continuation of a zombie story. A can’t-put-it-down book. We are beginning to see how David is pulling all these threads together and leaves us wanting wanting wanting. So excited for the next book.

    Can’t wait!

    Mr. Lund has upped the voltage in the second of this series. Just as you’re starting to get comfortable he pulls the trigger and things turn topsy turvy. The fact that no one escapes unscathed is an added bonus, there are some scenes that really punch you in the gut. I hope this awesome story continues to grow.

    Loved it!

    Okay, now that I have found another series to read I have to wait for Book Three. So much action, grief, excitement, terror and hope. Love the different survivor groups, root for the good guys and pray that the bad ones die violently. Now the long wait….

    Winchester2Sequels ARE Good

    I’m super impressed with this book and can’t wait to start Book 3.

    Another exciting thrill ride…

    … that leaves you hanging on the edge as you devour page after page only for it to end with you still needing more.

    Beware the rampaging bear

    This story did not go in the direction I thought it would after Book One, but boy did it have me gripped. There were several scenes that had me sitting a work open mouthed, good job I was having lunch at the time but not so good for anyone watching me eat. I’m not going to give anything away regarding the story apart from beware the rampaging bear, for there will be bloody retribution.

    Dave does it again with another hit!

    Winchester:Prey picks up where the first book left off. Very good read and would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys action, violence, and zombies with some prepper knowledge.

    Getting deeper into what looks to be an excellent series!

    This has been an awesome story so far. Plenty of action, well developed characters. Dave Lund has created what looks to be a very promising new series, reminiscent of DJ Molles’ The Remaining. I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in this series!

    If you are a fan of prepper fiction, you’ll love this story!

  • Visit Bexar’s Cabin!

    For those of you who haven’t read Winchester: Over yet (what are you waiting for?), I’m not going to ruin the story for you, but this is the cabin that Bexar’s family uses, along with the back porch which faces The Window across The Basin.

    … and when Bexar’s group first entersThe Basin, they notice the burned out restaurant at the top of the hill on the left.  The restaurant really sits there and is also connected to a gift shop, it is the only restaurant in the park.  Although a bit pricey (think about how far the food has to be trucked in), the food is good and the view, especially the sunset view, is spectacular.
    Pulling into the basin camping area, Bexar and the others were faced with a few surprises. A handful of tents were standing, but there were no vehicles parked in the areas they could see from the road. The restaurant and gift shop had burned to the ground, but that fire hadn’t triggered any other fires. The Civilian Conservation Corps, or CCC-built cabins, were still standing, as were the two small motels, the little rangers’ station, and the convenience store, but again there were no vehicles to be seen.

     

  • Dave Lund, the Winchester Undead prepper expert, tells us how to make post-apocalyptic coffee (thank God!)

    Dave Lund, author of the Winchester Undead series for Winlock, lives and writes at the intersection of prepper fiction and zombie fiction. He knows this stuff, in and out. Hell, he lives this stuff, and his blog entries over at WinchesterUndead.com are a great insight into an … unusual mind.

    Take, for instance, his recent post on making coffee, prepper style. It’s a fun example, he says, of “why an adaptive mind is more important than having all the right pieces of gear.”

    F8Industries-Coffee-02“In this case,” he tells us, “my family and I just returned from six days of camping in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. The first morning we woke, I fired up my trusty old-school Coleman Stove to start heating water and opened the first bag of coffee to pour into our really cool pour-over coffee system…and the system failure presented itself: whole beans.”

    In his haste, he’d failed to notice that the three bags of locally roasted coffee that he’d purchased the day before were whole beans, not ground…and there wasn’t a coffee grinder at home, much less at the campsite. “We had other important pieces of gear like a corkscrew for our wine that evening,” he says, “but alas…no ground coffee.” And as we all know – especially those of us with little children in our lives – a morning without coffee is a morning not worth living.

    What’s the solution? “Adapt and overcome,” Dave Lund says…which is kind of the Prepper Code. “We had zip top bags, and I had a plastic hammer I use for tent stakes. So we can make ‘ground’ coffee.” It took some time, carefully pounding on the bag to crush the coffee beans without blowing the bag apart, and even though the ‘grind’ wasn’t that great, “we still had good coffee every morning.”

    Potentially devastating EOTWAWKI problem solved.

    “Imagine that we are in a situation where we have no electricity, or there is massive civil unrest and you can’t leave to purchase more goods. Now imagine how much comfort could be found in a simple cup of coffee in the morning to help keep your mental health up and your outlook positive. Before shutting down all options for a single point of failure,” Lund tells us, “enjoy the challenge of making what you have work.

    We couldn’t agree more. All his solution is missing is a scattering of hissing, chittering zombies in the distance… but you’ll find plenty of that in The Winchester Undead Series.
