Overview

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.

Journalist Logan’s humorous, gory debut explores the unique challenges of a zombie plague that starts with Britain’s herd animals. The narrative is shared by Terry Borders, the only survivor of a slaughterhouse destroyed by rampaging zombie cows; Lesley McBrien, a second-rate journalist with information she shouldn’t have; and Geldof Peters, a bullied teenager saddled with parentally enforced veganism. As the story brings them all together, electricity fails, martial law reigns, and people experience the best and worst of one another—mostly the worst. While some of the internal logic doesn’t click as well as it might and the villain is straight out of central casting, 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. (May)
