There’s already an entry here for my online serial, exclusively available on JukePop Serials, but for those who haven’t been following the unfolding story as it happens, or those who want to revisit it in a binge, I’m happy to announce the entire first part of the serial will soon be available in eBook form. Following the unhinged, death-obsessed Burton as he traipses across desolate England, and his abrasive young companion Vita, it tells the tale of a man so thrown by the events of the apocalypse that he believes himself already dead – and interprets everything as a demonic afterlife challenge.

Mixing dark humour, tense violence and sharp dialogue, Pilgrimage of the Damned is an adventurous tale that moves quickly and benefits from many page-turning chapter endings, owing to its online serial origins. Originally available in weekly (or slower!) instalments, the first part will now be available as a complete eBook – absolutely free! The first part is a full 25 chapters of madness, charting our heroes journey from the devastated civilisations around London towards the coast, and hopes of escape from the British Isles.

Watch this space to be the first to lap it up on its release. If you can’t wait until then, though, the whole ongoing tale is available at JukePop, just click the link below. And if you like it, please vote it up.

Also one of the most successful TV movies adapted from a Stephen King novel, and a graphic novel, The Stand is an epic tale from a highly accomplished horror author. It’s set aside from the usual wasteland survivor scenario by its religious undertone, as the deadly apocalypse leads to the rise of an altogether different destructive force, and sets the stage for a battle between good and evil.
