A novel of chilling suspense, apocalyptic beauty, and fine ales.


USA (trade paperback)

Ebook: Baen Ebooks (DRM Free) – Kindle US Nook – Sony US


Six months have passed since the end of the world, leaving a handful of survivors holed up in a Welsh manor with little to do but survive. They’ve made the best of things, planting food, drinking their way through the cellar’s wine and ale, and reminiscing about the way life used to be. But with supplies running thin, everything is about to change…

“This book is beautifully written, it is scary, thought provoking, fun and different.” – Famous Monsters of Filmland

The arrival of a stranger named Michael sheds new light on their circumstances. If the survivors can reach Cornwall, a few days’ journey south, they will find a safe haven, called Bar None, quite possibly the last bar on earth.

“…a fun, engaging, exceptionally strange and refreshingly original tale for fans of postapocalyptic fiction.” – Publishers Weekly

As they make their way across the Briitish countryside, the survivors will experience a world gone strange, where frightening beings fly high overhead, where flora and fauna press in to fill the void left by the fall of man, and, in the wreckage of civilization, where less fortunate survivors, twisted by plagues, hunger, and fear, stalk human prey.

“It’s a book I will be reading again (and again), there are so many layers here, it’s impossible to dig through them all on a first reading. No, like the beer it so beautifully describes this is a book to savour time and time again to get all the subtle nuances. Tim Lebbon goes from strength to strength in my mind, this isn’t horror writing of the highest order, this is writing of the highest order.” – Highlander’s Book Reviews

  14. Lawrence McNeela says:

    This sounds ace. I hope for your characters’ sakes they dont make it as far as Launceston as we have the worst pubs in Britain here! We do have two brilliant 2nd hand bookshops here but I doubt I’ll find it in those yet. Tell me, is it worth a drive to Plymouth to the big Waterstones there, will they stock it?

    I really enjoyed Lebbon’s other work, but after reading BN all I can say is who would have thought the end of the world would be so boring? Instead of the Animal planet meets Food and Drink, put down the sedatives and give me some more kick ass stories like ‘Berserk’.

  16. Tim Lebbon says:

    Setser, really sorry you didn’t enjoy this one – can love ’em all! You might like COLDBROOK, the zombie novel I’m working on.
