I am up to Chapter 20 of my new online scifi horror book. Although Alcohol is frequently deemed bad for our health, an ironical twist of fate might make this advice redundant.

FGM – The Most Frightening Acronym Ever Devised

By D R2 | July 28, 2014

Have you heard of this acronym? In my experience 3-letter acronyms are the preserve of the IT industry, but in this instance they are very glad to give this one a wide berth. Female Genital Mutilation – three words that should never be present in the same sentence. I always knew this happened in primitive … Read moreFGM – The Most Frightening Acronym Ever Devised

Bugs – A Natural End To Civilisation?

By D R2 | July 19, 2014

I watched a golden oldie the other day, a film called Bug (1975). Apart from the hammy acting, including a scene where the Harmony-Hair-Sprayed wife (Joanna Miles) of the hero catches fire in the kitchen – right next to the tap. Guess what she does? Instead of quickly running her head under the water faucet … Read moreBugs – A Natural End To Civilisation?

Human Politics And The Female Condition

By D R2 | July 14, 2014

I normally write blogs on the world of zombies. Perhaps this one won’t be far off-track. I like to find interesting photos to illustrate my blogs; the other day I was searching for some grisly photos of disease when I came across the most extraordinary photos of posters from the 1940s. I was horrified at … Read moreHuman Politics And The Female Condition

Zombie Apocalypse – What REALLY Is The Biggest Threat?

By D R2 | July 9, 2014

Having read Jack Flacco’s interesting blog on parasites that might cause a form of zombie-ism, it reminded me of a part of my biology degree where we studied parasites. Thanks Jack, I’d nearly forgotten that! The Zombie Apocalypse sounds pleasant compared to parasites! Having said that, if we look around us there are a million … Read moreZombie Apocalypse – What REALLY Is The Biggest Threat?

A Sad Day For Aussies And Brits Alike

By D R2 | July 4, 2014

I don’t know about you, but Rolf Harris has been a big part of my life since I was a little ’un. To hear him finally convicted and sentenced today sounded a death-knell to yet another part of my childhood, and to a certain degree some of my adult years. The fact that he cried … Read moreA Sad Day For Aussies And Brits Alike

Of Mice And Men, Or ‘Of Super-Rats And Politicians’

By D R2 | June 27, 2014

This has been an interesting week for news, and while terrible things are going on elsewhere in the world, here in the UK we have had some rather interesting accusations coming from Parliament as well as, coincidentally, a rise in the population of Super-Rats. Let’s talk about rats first – the non-parliamentary kind. Several articles … Read moreOf Mice And Men, Or ‘Of Super-Rats And Politicians’

Warm Bodies Anyone?

By D R2 | June 25, 2014

Today’s mental wandering is only partly zombie related. Is there anything more upsetting than watching Hollywood and fashion killing off the human race – starting with the female half? Perhaps they have created a desire in women to become the skeletons or the love interest in Warm Bodies. Is this film to blame for this … Read moreWarm Bodies Anyone?

Reviews – And Where To Find The Most Valuable Ones

By D R2 | June 23, 2014

Sometimes I find reviews of my work positively frustrating. I don’t expect constant high ratings, I accept that some people just don’t like my material – you know the old adage about pleasing some of the people some of the time. What I have problems with is those that either appear to have a hidden … Read moreReviews – And Where To Find The Most Valuable Ones

I’ve just uploaded the next two chapters read by my good self. Check it out on http://youtu.be/SLhxtGYV_Ig Fleeing their zombified owners, our feathered and fuzzy friends contend with hunger (they did miss lunch), short tempers and the cat. Babe struggles with his sexuality (not struggle exactly) when he meets Simone Pig (get it?). Happy listening!

Today I have just published a spoken video of the first two chapters of the story of Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse. Babe and his friendshave a rude awakening when they discover Mr Farmer has bitten the hand that feeds him. It puts into perspective the petty squabbles between the farm’s animals – almost.

The Answer To The Eternal Question

After centuries of this question being unanswerable, here is the definitive solution to the problem.

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

By D R2 | 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 … Read moreBabe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 6 – Humbug and Preppers

Zombie Makeover

By D R2 | June 5, 2014

At last! A way for a zombie to feel good about itself! Why should Botox, vampire facials, nipping and tucking be the domain of breathers alone? We can thank the gang warfare in a town called Ciudad Juárez in Mexico. In particular a dentist, a Dr Alejandro Hernández Cárdenas, is the man responsible for this … Read moreZombie Makeover

What Do Teleportation and Zombies Have In Common?

By D R2 | June 3, 2014

Answer: They have the same question in common – where does the soul go after infection or during teleportation? Have you ever watched Star Trek and given a little thought to what happens when a person is deconstructed and transported over a distance? What do you get at the other end? The original person – … Read moreWhat Do Teleportation and Zombies Have In Common?

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

By D R2 | 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. … Read moreBabe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 5 – Conflict Of Interest

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

By D R2 | 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 … Read moreBabe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 4 – Simone Pig

Power In The Apocalypse

By D R2 | May 14, 2014

So, we lose all of our civilisation touches when the Apocalypse strikes. Or do we? Maybe the best thing to do is to work out, in advance, where all of the eco-houses and natural phenomenon technology has been installed. That way, when catastrophe strikes we can move into these areas and buildings and take advantage … Read morePower In The Apocalypse

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

By D R2 | 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 … Read moreBabe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 3 – A Shaggy Dog Tail

Control Nature

By D R2 | May 8, 2014

Can we continue to control nature? How many of you realise that just before the detonation of the first atomic bomb, many scientists feared that it would trigger an unstoppable chain reaction that would engulf the world? There was a strong logic behind this potential outcome. In spite of that appalling risk to the whole … Read moreControl Nature

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

By D R2 | 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 … Read moreBabe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 2 – Qwackers Nearly Qwoaks

I’m Not A Vegetarian But…

By D R2 | April 30, 2014

I like my meat, there’s nothing tastier than a well-cooked steak or a lamb mince lasagne, especially when my better half is doing the cooking. Having said that, I tend to wonder if there is ever going to be a line that we draw on how much we will use poor dumb creatures for our … Read moreI’m Not A Vegetarian But…

Babe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 1 – The Beginning Of The End

By D R2 | 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 … Read moreBabe: Pig In The Apocalypse – Chapter 1 – The Beginning Of The End

3 thoughts on “Home

  1. 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.
