If you think you've seen it all -- WORLD WAR Z, THE WALKING DEAD-- you haven't seen anything like this. From the twisted brain of Michael Logan comes Apocalypse Cow, a story about three unlikely heroes who must save Britain . . . from a rampaging horde of ZOMBIE COWS!
 
Forget the cud. They want blood.
 
It began with a cow that just wouldn't die. It would become an epidemic that transformed Britain's livestock into sneezing, slavering, flesh-craving four-legged zombies.
 
And if that wasn't bad enough, the fate of the nation seems to rest on the shoulders of three unlikely heroes: an abattoir worker whose love life is non-existent thanks to the stench of death that clings to him, a teenage vegan with eczema and a weird crush on his maths teacher, and an inept journalist who wouldn't recognize a scoop if she tripped over one.
 
As the nation descends into chaos, can they pool their resources, unlock a cure, and save the world?
 
Three losers.
Overwhelming odds.
One outcome . . .
 
Yup, we're screwed.

Praise for Apocalypse Cow

"Apocalypse Cow treads that rare path between horrific and hilarious, which makes for a very fun read indeed. Give it a go." —Christopher Moore, author of Lamb, Fool, and A Dirty Job

 

"Apocalypse Cow made me snort with laughter." — Terry Pratchett, author of the award-winning and bestselling Discworld novels
 

"Logan has a flair for unique description (“a muscled chest that made Arnold Schwarzenegger’s pecs look like burst balloons”) and for painting a mental picture almost photographic in its clarity. An impressive start for an author who’s going places." - Publishers Weekly"This clever and very funny twist on the traditional zombie novel is exceedingly well executed (it approaches but never quite steps into parody territory), and it ends with a scene that pretty much demands a sequel. Great stuff for horror and fantasy fans." - booklist, starred review "Apocalypse Cow is a promising first novel, with a challenging premise that will be hard to top, so it'll be interesting to see what he has lined up next. Perhaps something equally horrifying (and hilarious) for the vegetarian set." - Rue Morgue
