ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Eight

It was extremely fortunate that Ryan and Kas recognised the path they’d walked along a few days earlier. An orienteering sign with a gnarled tree trunk stump nearby was the giveaway. From that point they knew the town was only an hour’s walk away or so. The number of lurchers had reduced greatly since Ryan’s … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Eight

The flames danced with spirit as the fire grew in size and ferocity. It quickly engulfed the adjacent side of the cabin from which Ryan and Kas stood, who were waiting patiently for their moment to run. They could hear the excitable sounds of the lurchers as they were drawn towards the blaze in number. … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Seven

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Six

“I saw what you did.” Ryan’s eyes snapped open as he awoke; he shot up to a sitting position. Kas was glaring at him through bloodshot eyes and broke into a violent coughing fit. It was loud enough to cause Ryan to wince. The lurchers would definitely hear if they were nearby. “The fuck are … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Six

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Five

Ryan held his breath. The sound of shuffling feet and the occasional throaty growl could still be heard. At least they weren’t hammering on the side of the shack anymore. He looked across the room towards the shivering Kas whose breathing was becoming increasingly laboured. That was all he needed, to soon be sharing the … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Five

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Three

The splitting headache made itself known before Ryan even struggled to open his eyes. For a moment, he had no idea where he was. He instinctively reached out to his alarm clock and fumbled around. On feeling nothing he pulled a perplexed face and lifted his head slightly to look. A few things hit him … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Three

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Two

A quick sweep got rid of all lurchers remaining in the office building, though nobody was especially happy about staying there. There were two sofas in the lobby and that was about as luxuriant as it got. Uncomfortable computer chairs were the only other seats available. More to the point, there was no food aside … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Two

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter One

The truck rumbled into another town midmorning the next day. It was just as well because they were practically running on fumes. The town was big enough to assume there’d be a petrol station and places in which to find food. The only problem was that there were lurchers—a lot of them! Kas had run … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter One

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Prologue

Not one person sat in the truck could quite get a handle on how the situation at New Haven, a situation that had seemed so perfect, had gone awry so quickly. Less than a week ago it had been the ideal safe zone, a properly run and maintained community. Now it was about to fall, … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Prologue

A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story Relaunch

Due to the events surrounding Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day, my schedule was pushed back a bit and this is being posted later than I’d originally intended. Never mind! I got there in the end. As the title suggests, A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story: New Black Plague is back home on The Adventures of an Average, … Continue reading A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story Relaunch

Readers’ Thoughts

As promised at the start of Mental Health Awareness Month, I’ve been amassing the thoughts of readers and, although the quantity perhaps isn’t what I’d hoped it would be, the quality is superb. I have four separate statements from four very unique individuals with different stories to tell and different mental health struggles to deal … Continue reading Readers’ Thoughts
