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!

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 6 – Humbug and Preppers

June 7, 2014

Charging into the woods at the bottom of the sloping field, the friends finally halted their panicked flight from the horrors they had just witnessed and hovering around in an untidy group gathered their frightened wits together. Babe noticed his big friend Goliath had a gash along the length of his flank. A little blood…

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 5 – Conflict Of Interest

May 23, 2014

Babe’s voice failed him. Not even a twat like Sid the cat could have distracted him after Simone’s voice had overwhelmed his mind. Her presence and aura was like a warm bath enveloping his brain and soothing him; all thoughts of their perilous circumstance or the wellbeing of his friends went clean out the window.…

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 4 – Simone Pig

May 17, 2014

Qwackers wailed in dismay as he watched his beloved partner slowly change before his very eyes. Salma appeared to be increasingly distressed. Her eyes were bloodshot – not that that was easy to see, her little button eyes were always dark, and a tear rolled slowly down her beak. She began to quiver as if…

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 3 – A Shaggy Dog Tail

May 10, 2014

The relief that Qwackers had survived his terrible ordeal was short-lived. The humans had heard all of Salma’s cries for help and, of course, Goliath’s not-so subtle approach to rescuing their friend. Now the once dignified creatures (they walked on two legs so they had to be) were crawling across the debris, their nacreous eyes…

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 2 – Qwackers Nearly Qwoaks

May 2, 2014

Shep and Babe came bounding out of the house running from the semi-clutches of Mrs Farmer and noticed that the Master was still swinging his wife’s hand wildly, although to be fair it looked like he’d also had a bit of a nibble from the wet end as he made his way over to the…

      thanks very much, Katie. Sorry for the delay in response, been starting a new business!

    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.
