Many people have written about the End of Days, none of them got it right. The Apocalypse was zombie, for sure. It was nasty and frightening - and of course deadly, very deadly.

Question is, did you imagine it to be quite as slimy? Quite as bodily invasive? There are things on this earth you may never have considered. For instance, did you know that you can get bilharzia from walking barefoot or wading in shallow, still water? What the hell is bilharzia, I hear you ask? It's a parasitic flatworm (see book cover) that resides in its victims' intestines or urinary tract.

What if you took this thing you never ever considered before, this bilharzia, and changed its DNA to change its behaviour in the human body? What could you get? The 'Pocalypse, of course!

Dogs And The Zombie Apocalypse

November 25, 2014

Following up on my recent article on the best dog to have in a Zombie Apocalypse, I think I missed the point a little in as much the question should not have been Bitzer or Pedigree, but dog or no dog? I read the most wonderful story this week about a group of four Swedes…

Zombie Swarms – Can New Technology Detect Them?

November 21, 2014

Detecting Zombie Swarms – does it justify the personal freedom restrictions it implies? I think this technology breakthrough seriously creeps me out more than coming face to face with a zombie! Chinese researcher, Jenq-Neng Hwang announced recently at the University of Washington that they had developed software that will enable a person to be followed…

A Great Dog For The Zombie Apocalypse

November 17, 2014

I have included dogs in my books about the Zombie Apocalypse but it might be interesting to think about what sort of dog would make a good side-kick in the ZA, in fact a great dog for the zombie apocalypse! Ideas of what to look for in a dog: Capacity to warn of approaching danger…

Do You Believe In Halloween Witches?

October 31, 2014

A lot of criticism has been directed at Halloween over the years, from the recent church suggestions that children ought to dress up as saints depicting their stories, to the annual resurgence of ‘possession’ particularly amongst children. My gut feeling is that extreme trauma would ensue if children dressed up as saints considering the appalling…

    Really enjoyed these zombie books. Much better storylines than some of the terriblly poorly constructed stuff out there. Good storylines, believable characters and a very clever twist at the end.
