Robinson Crusoe on Zombie Island
Inspired by the original literary classic, this horror mash-up tells the story of Robinson Crusoe and his 28-year struggle to survive on an island beset by ravenous zombies. Crusoe is forced to improvise in the wake of total isolation and terror. His only hope may be Friday, a native cannibal woman, as he is caught between the warring factions of cannibals and zombies. Told through the pages of Robinson Crusoe’s diary, this book offers a satisfying combination of serious and silly as readers find just how badly things can go for this all-time favorite once the living dead are added to the mix.

The Works of Daniel Defoe
The 44 volumes that make up "The Works of Daniel Defoe" are a comprehensive collection of the writings of this extraordinary man. Grouped under five thematic headings, it aims to give as extensive a representation as possible of Defoe's work in all the literary genres to which he contributed. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) is mainly thought of as a novelist - author of such novels as "Moll Flanders" and Robinson Crusoe" - but his contemporary regarded him in a different light. In his own lifetime Defoe was regarded as a poet, a journalist and a polemic writer on political, economic and social affairs. The quantity and range of his writings have made a lasting impact on many literary genres.
