SYNOPSIS  

In Naming of Parts, Jack and his family fled the zombie plague to find his sister. Jack’s mother died, and his sister was already infected. Grief-stricken, alone, Jack and his father headed for the coast.
In Changing of Faces, were-creatures attacked the beached cruise liner which they had dared call home. Jack’s father was swept out to sea in a life-raft, and Jack lay dying in the sands.
Now, the world has moved on. The few people who remain huddle in small communities or wander the landscape as Walkers.  Mad, murderous wraiths haunt the overgrown towns.  When Jack hears rumours of his father, he embarks on one final journey to reunite what is left of his family.
Moving, melancholy, terrifying, Shifting of Veils completes the Apocalypse Trilogy in chilling form.

Still Life

October 12th, 1999 • Posted in Novellas |

Availability:-  The book is available as either a limited signed Hardback Edition of 125 copies  or a paperback edition of 100 copies.  You can order direct from Spectral Press here.

 

Synopsis:

Jenni’s husband was part of the Road of Souls––his flesh swarmed by ants and pecked by rooks, bones crushed to powder by wheels of dread––and yet she still saw him in the pool.

 The incursion has been and gone, the war is over, and the enemy is in the land, remote and ambiguous.  The village outskirts are guarded by vicious beasts, making escape impossible.  The village itself is controlled by the Finks, human servants to the enemy––brutal, callous, almost untouchable. 

Everything is less than it was before… time seems to move slower, the population is much denuded, and life itself seems to hold little purpose.  This is not living, it’s existing.

But in a subjugated population, there is always resistance. 

For Jenni, the happiest part of this new life is visiting the pool in the woods, seeing her dead husband within, and sharing memories of happier times.  It calms her and makes her feel alive.

But the resistance comes to her for help. 

And when her dead husband tells her it is time to fight, Jenni’s life is destined for a shattering change.

The Reach of Children

October 12th, 1999 • Posted in Novellas |

Publisjed September 2008, Humdrumming

Due to the publisher Humdrumming’s recent demise, this Limited Edition Hardback is now SOLD OUT

Daniel is ten years old when his mother dies. She dies young, and with so much left to give. He does not understand. He cannot let her go.

After the funeral, his father begins talking to a large wooden box that suddenly appears beneath his bed. And when Daniel whispers to the box one day when his father goes out … it answers back.

It’s a voice he does not know. But this voice knows so much.

“Lebbon has written one of the best and most emotionally convincing stories about death that I have ever read” – Michael Marshall Smith

“…a precisely written and moving account of love and redemption” – Black Static

“…emotional and thought-provoking…” – Interzone

“With The Reach of Children, (Lebbon) has exceeded even his former astounding works.” – Horror World

“This is an important book, it will win things.  This is a given. More importantly though – and I honestly think Lebbon would share my opinion on this – this is a book that people will get evangelical about.  They will insist their friends read it.  They will get increasingly frustrated by people who claim to have not had the time or the money.” – The Hub
