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 1 – The Beginning Of The End

April 25, 2014

“A bacon sarnie? How can you say that in front of…” the horse paused for a moment, nodding his head sideways to indicate the little piglet standing in the circle of friends. “Him,” he finished. “I’m just saying it like it is,” the cat, Sid, argued while at the same time smiling slyly. “It smells…

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse – A Cornish Pastiche

April 25, 2014

An earlier article set me onto this path. It’s not my fault; it’s just never left my mind. Anyhow, I am about to publish a blog called ‘Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse’, chapter by chapter. I’m not sure how far I can or will take it, but if George Miller can go from directing Mad…

Dogs In The Apocalypse

February 21, 2014

In my book, The Common Cold: A Zombie Apocalypse, I introduced a dog to the survivors. It was trapped on the aeroplane with them. He appealed to everyone as something from normal times; he amused the children, helping to keep them calm, and maybe, just maybe, he could function as an alarm, warning of zombie…

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse

February 14, 2014

No, sorry to say I’m not announcing a sequel that ensures jobs for our young porcine friends, although it’s an intriguing thought. Would zombies chase Babe for his brains? Or would he try and round them up? No, this is about survival come the Apocalypse. What do we eat? Whatever you read lists everything from…

The Slippery Moonlight, By Amy Good. Part Two of Two

August 15, 2013

“I got worried,” Leon explains.  His eyes and mouth droop. “You weren’t supposed to leave the street,” I say.  It’s not what I want to say.  I want to thank him for checking on me.  I want to tell him how much I appreciate his killing the other meat suit that came down the stairs. …

The Slippery Moonlight, By Amy Good. Part One of Two

August 9, 2013

“She got bit?”  My stomach tightens.  My breath comes in fast gulps.  I squeeze Polly’s toddler arm too tight and her little eyes widen.  She squirms out of my grasp, running to Cora.  “Why didn’t you tell me?  What were you thinking?  I can’t even, Cora.  I can’t even.” “It’s not – kids bite each…

      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.
