Apocalypse Cow

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' - NY Times bestselling author Christopher Moore, author of Lamb, Fool and A Dirty Job.

Apocalypse Cow made me snort with laughter' - Terry Pratchett, bestselling author of the Discworld series

'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)

'A comic, blood-soaked romp through the UK, at times a hilarious social satire, and at others an action-packed gore fest, sure to please fans of the traditional zombie story...an accomplished novel by a promising writer' - Press Association

'Logan has a flair for unique description ... and for painting a mental picture almost photographic in its clarity. An impressive start for an author who’s going places' - Publishers Weekly

'Michael Logan gives us a fast-paced dark comedy stuffed with violence, sprinkled with sex, reminiscent of Tom Sharpe, including witty lines and observations that are Pratchett-esque in their pointiness' - Mark Lawrence, author of the Prince of Thorns

'Ploughs the same furrows as Shaun of the Dead, wonderfully parodying the zombie and survival horror genre, but at the same time paying homage to it...worthy of a place amongst the best apocalyptic fiction...eminently readable, brilliantly written and side-splitting funny' - Bookgeeks.co.uk

'Earning its rightful place alongside other “nature run amok” classics of pop culture, Logan’s novel really delivers the Grade A goods.' - Bloody Disgusting

'Logan manages to find a great balance between the dark and disturbing and the quirky and hilarious, all the while intermingling plotlines like a seasoned pro' - Rue Morgue

'Its unhinged, imaginative wit and respect for the genre deserve the attention of any self-respecting fan.' - Fangoria

'Very funny indeed in that deadpan British way that shows why it won the inaugural Terry Pratchett Prize for a First Novel' - Library Journal

'This is one of the funniest zombie books I’ve ever read. Michael Logan has created a great new entry in the genre, and promises to be a must-read author' - Night Owl Reviews

'Michael Logan's black comedy is an absurd yet utterly addictive read' - Stylist Magazine

'Some moments are very good indeed... Apocalypse Cow is a pacy, entertaining read' - We Love This Book

READ THE FIRST THREE CHAPTERS

Forget the cud, they want blood...

An outrageous and anarchic comic take on the zombie apocalypse - and joint winner of the first Terry Pratchett ‘Anywhere But Here, Anywhen But Now’ prize.

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 recognise 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.
