Yes, it’s true: Apocalypse Cow is the title of Michael Logan’s new novel (due in May from Doubleday, £14.99). It is the joint winner of the Terry Pratchett “Anywhere But Here, Anywhen But Now Prize”. Pratchett said: “Apocalypse Cow made me snort with laughter.”
The writer is a journalist who has worked in Bosnia, Tajikstan, Kenya, Sudan and Somalia. Apocalypse Cow is his first novel.
“When scientists with warped imaginations accidentally unleash and experimental bioweapon that transforms Britain’s animals into sneezing, bloodthirsty zombies with a penchant for pre-dinner sex with their victims, three misfits become the unlikely hope for salvation…Forget the cud, they want blood.”
