I am up to Chapter 14 of my new online scifi horror book. Life is full of losses and wins. The Apocalypse is no different. Sometimes you never know what happens to your loved ones; is that better than knowing?

Pius unceremoniously skewered the helmsman standing in the wheelhouse from behind, thrusting up into the brain and taking whatever life it possessed, after which we threw the flaccid corpse unceremoniously overboard. I looked at where he had been standing and saw that the key was still in the ignition, a small, yellow plastic Homer Simpson … Read more12 – Bridging The Gap
It was weird but as we ran for the trees I kept on thinking how this place looked in normal times – filled with office workers, civil servants, tourists, protesters, and the encampments of long term political complainants. All of that was now gone, in its place huge amounts of rubbish, torn down tents, discarded … Read more11 – Taking In The Sights
Looking out of the window in the stairwell we could see that the zombie herd had moved away, probably inflicting misery and terror wherever they went. “Now’s our time to leave,” Pius suggested. “Where are you going?” Vlad asked. “He has to get to his family in Woolwich,” Becky piped up. “We’re going with him.” … Read more10 – Once More Unto The Breach
Sneaky Bastard was right behind me. In spite of his drugged up state he’d managed stealth in spite of my precautions. The squaddie’s gun was pointing unerringly between my eyes – it was one of my worst moments in the early apocalypse. My fear for Becky was intense; I didn’t want these bastards to harm … Read more9 – The Rise And Fall – And Rise – of Sneaky Bastard
After climbing the stairs at full tilt we burst out into an open foyer that had two elevator doors at the far end and a cheap-looking plastic imitation veneer reception desk. Off this same area were several office doors. Seeing this floor I was dismayed. If we sought safety in one of these rooms we … Read more8 – Division In The Household
Trudging up the road we began to see people rushing out onto the street. Some were flailing at themselves desperately trying to put out the fire that had engulfed them having been caught up in the conflagration. Others seemed oblivious to the consuming flames and when I ran over to one to offer assistance he … Read more7 – Prêt Â Survivre, Anyone?

By the time we crossed the river we could hear steady gunfire starting up again, presumably at the crowd coming up from the south. The sci-fi buzzing of the drone’s guns could also be heard as they dealt death and destruction from above. I wondered if the ‘Battle of Lambeth’ would be remembered like 9/11 … Read more6 – Frying Pan or Fire – You Choose
Arriving at Lambeth Bridge, we discovered our route along the embankment was blocked by the military standing shoulder to shoulder on the far side of the roundabout, guns ready with bayonets fixed. In spite of the fact that they had tank back up even from this distance I could see apprehension in each man’s eyes … Read more5 – Puppet Master
Becky looked at me and I could see abject fear on her face – I knew she agreed with my decision because I struggled to keep up with her on our devil-chased retreat. My girl was never normally one to do as she was told – or maybe it was just with me, I don’t … Read more4 – Questions Answered
Together we walked – I hobbled – back to the bright yellow fibreglass security hut and Pius opened the door. “Come in and sit down,” he instructed me. Still feeling weak from my encounter I did as he ordered, grateful to be off my leg – the cut was beginning to ache and sting like … Read more3 – Unanswered Questions
Not wanting to mix it with the millions of tourists Brexit brought us this summer we had already agreed on dodging them by crossing the river at Vauxhall. This way we would remain well clear of them at least until we reached Westminster. Unwittingly we’d finally done something right. Hand in hand we trekked briskly … Read more2 – More Signs
Let me explain why I’m twelve storeys up, on the outside of a building and about to do something completely insane. Hello Dear Reader, My name is Emile – but I’m not French; I have this name because my mother always wanted to learn French but never managed, so my name had to suffice. Although … Read more1 – In The Beginning – Clueless
All in all I am not as convinced that Science Fiction influences reality – our lives – as much as we think – or would like to think. It’s the old argument of life imitating art or vice versa. I write science fiction – I love science fiction. To write it I observe and understand … Read moreScience Fiction Influences Reality – True or False?
If You Think You’re ‘Ard Enough 🙂 Coming up on the 10th October, 2015, the Apocalypse event of the year – the ApocalypZe 6 Hour Charity Extreme Horror Survival Event. So What’s This Apocalypse Event About? It’s about charirty! It’s “ApocalypZe Breaking” and is a cross between “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here” … Read moreApocalypse Event Of The Year
A worthy sentiment, but on reflection, the name of this film, Kill Zombie!, is a little like that Ronseal ad, ‘it does what it says on the side of the can’. Kill Zombie! – I’m not going to tell you what this film is all about, I’ll keep you in suspense. It’s original title is … Read moreKill Zombie!
Imagine you’re on the holiday of a lifetime. You’re lounging by the pool on a cruise ship in the Med, the Caribbean, or wherever. You’re just sipping a freshly prepared piña colada, margarita, martini, or simply a cold beer. You close your eyes to relax. After a moment a shadow falls over you. You sit … Read moreWalker Stalker Cruise?
Was the Australian film, ‘Undead’, worth the £1.95 I spend on its purchase? Well and truly. I believe this has the potential of becoming a cult film if it isn’t already in some circles. It has all the right content, particularly the strange, slightly barking hero (played by Mungo McKay) and the hot, kick-ass female … Read moreUndead – A Film Review
I’ve been watching the proceedings of today’s celebration of a king much disputed, all the more because his place of rest was so disputed and frankly unknown. Through a significant amount of clever detective work his remains were unearthed and so we witnessed the real Return Of A King. In the car park where his … Read moreThe Real Return Of A King
Part of my brain thinks ‘what a tragedy’, while the rational part of me knows that 83 is a damn good age to reach, and with all he’s done in his extraordinary life he probably couldn’t have achieved much more. ‘Live Long And Prosper’ has been a good motto for both Leonard Nimoy and Mr … Read moreLeonard Nimoy – Rest In Peace
Maybe I’ve finally seen everything now. The latest Daily Mail article on Richard III’s remains being discovered is all about an escort agency cashing in on the re-interment of the King’s remains. Is this a waste of electrons bouncing around your computer screen? Is this tenuous link just another cheap trick by the DM to … Read moreReturn Of A King – A Tenuous Link
I have touched on this subject before, but considering our technological advancement will cause us one day to produce something not entirely unlike Star Trek’s teleport technology I think this subject needs to be understood before putting a sentient being through this process. We all know about teleportation, right? We stand in teleport chamber A … Read moreTeleport – A Equals B?
I had a conversation with a man yesterday who is a fanatical sci-fi aficionado. He reckons the interest in zombies is waning. I sure as hell hope not, I like it when someone buys and enjoys my books. It’s not like I’m going to be earning my living at it any time soon (especially with … Read moreIs The Zombie Genre Dying On Its Feet?
I’ve brought you zombie sausages, black burgers in a black bun, and now it’s time for something a little different. Zombie burgers. First things first, it isn’t a burger made from zombies; it’s a burger FOR a zombie because it tastes like human flesh – allegedly. This creation is the result of bringing together of … Read moreZombie Burgers, Anyone?
