In 1876, the world went to Hell.

In 1877, four survivors clawed their way back out.

From the mind of author Grey West comes a post-apocalyptic thriller that wildly re-imagines America’s past. Set twelve years after the Civil War, the DOUBLE BARREL puts readers on a collision course with history…and zombies.

IN THE WEST: Twin brothers John and James Barrel are the nation’s deadliest Regulators–gunslingers with a license to kill from Abraham Lincoln. When an urgent telegraph from the President is cut off by a zombie attack, the Barrels must set out to find and kill the man responsible for the zombie scourge.

IN THE EAST: Seventeen-year-old Violet Drake and her mute brother Sam have seen nightmares before, but nothing like the evil flooding the streets of New York City. After learning of a possible cure, the Drakes must race against time to find the one person who can help, a man known as the Wizard of Menlo Park. But first they must escape Manhattan before it’s overrun by the undead.

Four survivors.

Two adrenaline-laced stories.

One incredible journey that will pit them against the world.

(Originally released as six serialized episodes, Double Barrel “Season 1” contains the six books in their entirety as one novel length collection.)

DOUBLE BARREL is available from Amazon.


“5-stars. Grey West has created a world that’s inventive, completely unexpected, and bursting at the seams with mayhem. Fans of THE WALKING DEAD and genre mash-ups like ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER will love Double Barrel.” -Jeremy Robinson, Bestselling Author of SecondWorld and Threshold

“I read it in a night… and then soundly bolted my doors before sleep.” -Tosca Lee, New York Times Bestselling Author


GREY WEST is the author and creator of the Double Barrel series of novels.

Born in [OMITTED] and raised by [CLASSIFIED], he discovered his gift for words at an early age. He eventually learned to write, which mercifully made good use of those words since he wasn’t particularly gifted at speaking.

Following in the footsteps of his parents, he studied Differential History and Dubious Occultism with the world-renowned professor [CONFIDENTIAL] at [TOP SECRET], receiving three PhD’s, highest honors from the faculty, and a letter from the Queen promising eventual knighthood provided he kept his oath to warn her of any imminent apocalypses-zombie, robotic, alien or otherwise.

He now lives in [VERY, VERY SECRET] with [EVEN MORE SECRET THAN THAT LAST BIT] and spends his days making stuff up for a living, enjoying fine food and drink, and warding off enemies so evil they cannot be mentioned here. He also likes the number three for obvious reasons.
