Five of the Best - New British Zombie Writers
Here at the Ministry of Zombies, we have trawled our bookshelves to find five of the most exciting new British authors in zombie & horror fiction. Now, we say ‘newcomer’ but some of these writers have been around for while with short stories but they all had new, breakthrough books in 2010 & 2011.
There is so much zombie fiction around at the moment, sometimes it’s good to recognise some of the amazing home-grown talent coming out of these islands. Represented in this list, you’ll find gritty real-life novels, amazing sprawling multi-book epics & classic comedy. Something they all share is they all wowed us here at the Ministry of Zombies.
So, here they are. Our Five of the Best. Of course, there are some other very talented authors out there but for now, here are five of the most exciting new British horror authors. They all deserve a place in our fortified Ministry of Zombies bunker when the zombie apocalypse hits the UK!
John McCuaig – a first novel with this London-based Scot. It’s amazing pace, tight scripting & simple but brilliantly told story keeps the reader glued to the page. One chapter more, just one chapter more, you look up & its gone midnight. McCuaig is an old-fashioned story-teller & we loved this story.

Darren Mills –this debut novel The Unnatural Dead was raw, edgy & feels like it's happening to you. It’s sharp, well-paced & would make a brilliant zombie flick. We’re watching Mr Mills to see what he comes up with next. What is for sure, it’s going to be more classic British zombie action….

Remy Porter – his debut novel Dead Beat ripped into the Ministry of Zombies book shelf as this ex-copper & now Aussie-based horror newcomer delivered a shot in the arm to zombie world. Very well-received & much praised – a very enjoyable zombie read. He has also since published some excellent short stories.
Chris Wood – zombie comedies or 'zombedies' aren’t well-represented these days but Wood’s Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys is truly a laugh out loud book. As they say, it’s grim out there at the moment so be of good cheer with this one. There’s a series in which Wood wrecks havoc with his gags. If you liked Blackadder, you’ll love this stuff.
Adam Millard – this guy seems to have come from no-where with two blistering books out – Dead Cell & Dead West. His books are like reading a blockbuster action movie – there is simply not a dull page. The books themselves are really well put together with some amazing artwork. We were lucky enough to get signed copies but his work is better known in the States than here. A guy to watch for the future.
Wow, in the words of the late, great Sir Jimmy Saville, hows about that then?
That lot should keep anyone’s Kindle busy. We have very much enjoy their work so hats off to them all & all our other hard working British & Irish authors.

And then, God help us all, there's the bacon explosion

K-Y is so ubiquitous on movie sets that it's even used when common sense would dictate otherwise. Near the end of Titanic, Kate Winslet's character spits in her evil fiance's face. They went through so many takes that Winslet's mouth dried out, and rather than just give her a bottle of water, they put K-Y on her tongue and had her spit that all over those perfectly arched, villainous eyebrows instead. If spitting sex lube onto Billy Zane was not already a bizarre niche fetish, it sure as hell is now. <a href=http://newmbtshoes.canerarslanalp.com/>MBT outlet</a> 14. AladdinWalt Disney PicturesA huge camel Eaton plays dirty with Aladdin. I can't even think of the scene this maniac is struggling to reference. It's like they typed up an excerpt from their dream journal by mistake. Also, Jasmine's father says "Praise Allah!" when they're talking about her getting married. This is listed under "Frightening-Intense Scenes. " <a href=http://www.quickwindowsquote.com>Nike Air Jordan 5</a> <a href=http://www.brevardacupuncture.net>Cheap Vans Old Skool</a> 5. Toy Story 3 Is an Allegory for the HolocaustPixarToy Story 3 is arguably the darkest film in Pixar's flagship trilogy, but it's still a heartwarming tale about friendship, growing up, and sticking together through the hardest times . Oh, and also it's about the mass extermination of millions of people in concentration camps. Pixar <a href=http://wholesalejordanshoes.canerarslanalp.com/>Air Jordan 13</a> 3. Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory Has Asperger's SyndromeCartoon Network StudiosDexter from Dexter's Laboratory was the envy of every science-minded kid who had to make do with an incomplete junior chemistry set and some hand-me-down LEGO Technics. He had a huge secret lab under his house and seemingly unlimited resources to build anything he imagined -- for instance, his own Dexo-Transformer, which he used to terrorize his bullies in dodgeball. Cartoon Network Studios <a href=http://mbtzapatoses.canerarslanalp.com/>MBT Zapatos Outlet</a> Both unjust and unsanitary. Even in Sweden, a country you'd expect to be pretty enlightened by reputation, dropped attempted rape charges against a man because his victim turned out to be a trans woman with a penis . And that's the real irony of being transgender in the modern world: You might not give one orphaned fuck about which genitals you have, but good luck convincing everyone else not to care. <a href=http://cheapjordan4shoes.canerarslanalp.com/>Jordans Retro Shoes</a> "It's the only way to stop their voices. "For example, we were opening a new exhibit at my park that involved us quickly moving a ton of sharks and stingrays, dashing them across the park and dropping them in new homes with virtually no notice, because management needed the exhibit opened fast for "media day. "It might be weird to think of sharks and rays as emotionally delicate, but they are: They were extremely stressed out by being moved to a new home, and having a tidal wave of loud strangers with flashy cellphones crash through the very next day didn't help much. The rays started beaching themselves -- hurling their bodies out of the water and onto the sandy artificial beach at the edge of the tank -- in a desperate attempt to escape.
