The end is here. The dead walk and the living are on the brink of extinction. Brad and Travis, part of a military search and rescue operation, race against time to evacuate survivors from Seattle, Washington. When the emergency shelter becomes overrun they are re-routed to a secret base, a code Majestic base, in the Canadian Arctic to await rendezvous. Between the isolation, rising tensions, and horrible secrets locked away in the frozen waste, they’ll face a horror colder than the snowy landscape.

Combining elements of horror and sword and sorcery, John Grover weaves an epic fantasy tale full of action, mystery and suspense.
A long vanquished evil has returned to the beautiful and peaceful realm of Orum. An evil that will stop at nothing to plunder and enslave all of the realm’s people and lay waste to its lands. An evil that refuses to die, that has ravaged every realm it has touched. Its name is Sinnia, the Spider Queen and she has set her eyes back on the one world that eludes her grasp.
The leadership races must come together and harness the old power of their ancestors, sing their song of lore as one people and defeat this horror once and for all. These races will come to discover a long lost secret about their own ancestry, their connection to each other and the realm itself, a secret that will change their world…forever.
Novella. 20,000 words.
What Other’s Are Saying About Frozen Stiff : A Zombie Novella
“Grover’s characters are exemplary. The survivors he concentrates on are not paper thin but detailed and easily believable. They–not the scary living dead–with both good and bad physical and mental up and downs drive the story’s progression of gloom and terror from the first word to the last. Fans of the aforementioned The Walking Dead will undoubtedly think of it and love this tale of survival against not only the flesh-eating dead but against the evils that men do.” – HORNS
“This is a cool (forgive the pun) Z tale that you will enjoy. Grover is a seasoned author who knows how to craft an enjoyable read. Add it to your zombie collection today.” – Eric S. Brown
What Other’s Are Saying About Web of the Spider Queen : Song of the Ancestors Book One
“It’s clear there’s just as much history behind Web of the Spider Queen as there are new stories to be told, so it will be interesting to see how Grover balances the two in future instalments. Whichever way he goes – forwards or backwards – I’m definitely up for another song of the ancestors.” – Bob Milne
“Web of the Spider Queen is certainly a fast-paced and intense fantasy adventure with a lot of horror influences.” – Matthew Ashworth
