The Literary Giveway Blog Hop!

23 Jun

The Literary blog hop is hosted by Leeswammes over on her blog. Between now and the 27th of June lots of blogs will all gather together and host givaways of books and bookish items. Check out the links at the bottom for the full list of blogs taking part.

My Givaway

I’m giving away an early reading copy of Apocalypse Cow by Michael Logan. i read this book earlier in the year and i loved it.

Synopsis –
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

  9. Parrish June 23, 2012 at 9:05 pm #

    Sounds fun, chuck me in the hat please.


    The voices of a huge mob
    explode all at once

    Something small and white rides the wind
    flying high into the sky

    On earth three men are running
    one has seized the moment to run away from home
    one loses himself in pursuit of the thing flying in the sky
    one dashes straight ahead, aiming to go home
    will the prodigal son be allowed to return home?

    In the blue of the blue sky a bird is
    slowly walking
