Tales of the Automazombs is a collection of short horror adventures set in a steampunkesque world. This means it draws inspiration from the Victorian Era but with certain technological advancements. There are, of course, airships and funky goggles, but the world of Eysan also has Automazombs.

What is an Automazomb, you ask? Imagine a shambling corpse, augmented with mechanical limbs, whose task is to devour plague-infected flesh. The Automazombs are the creation of the Inventors Guild as a last resort to combat a plague that threatens all of civilization.

In this first book in the series, the plague casts a dire shadow across the continent. From the arctic reaches of Irenorn, to the sparse canyonlands of Beskra, all the way to the magnificent floating city of Caelspyr, desperate citizens do what they must to survive.

Each story centers around different characters and countries. These characters deal with the plague, the Automazombs, and the more human dangers of a world on the brink. While some wish only to survive, others are determined to do all they can to help, and there are always a few who seek to use this disaster to their advantage.
