Rise Again: Below Zero

Rise Again: Below Zero

Ben Tripp '84 has just published "Rise Again: Below Zero," his second novel of a two-part apocalyptic zombie series for Gallery Books, an imprint at Simon Schuster Publishing. Of the book, Publisher's Weekly said: "This sequel to "Rise Again," the author, Ben Tripp, balances kinetically choreographed scenes of zombie carnage with studies of well-drawn characters and enough political intrigue to give his tale more gravity and grounding than most zombie gore feasts."
