A year ago, civilisation died, drowning and choking on its own blood in the brutal scourge of the Cull.

Katy and her friend and old tutor Dr. Emil Weber, fleeing the depredations of the fanatical Order, escape into Poland, eventually taking refuge among the strangely anachronistic survivors at the monastery of Jasna Góra.
A battle of faith ensues, that could decide the future of humankind...

The world ended when The Cull swept through civilisation, killing billions and sparing only those fortunate few blessed with the right blood. But in times of need heroes must rise.
Here three fantastic authors lead us into the apocalypse in the latest omnibus in the hit Afterblight Chronicles series.
In Malcolm Cross’ Orbital Decay astronaut Alvin Burrows watches helplessly as the world collapses and the crew on board the Space Station are slowly and gruesomely murdered, one by one. Exiled from Earth by his bloodtype, can he use his position to solve the mystery of the “Pandora” experiment in time?
In C.B Harvey’s Dead Kelly fugitive Kelly McGuire returns to the lawless city of Melbourne to bring vengeance down upon his old gangmates. McGuire has three jobs to do: be revenged, confront the uncomfortable truths of his past and face the discovery of his own terrible destiny.
In Adrian Tchailovsky’s The Bloody Deluge biochemist Katy Lewkowitz and colleague Dr Emil Weber flee the brutal cult of ‘The New Teutonic Order’ who are set on purging “undesirables;” as they take refuge within the walls of the Jasna Góra monastery a battle of faith ensues that could decide the future of humankind.
Journal of the Plague Year is comprised of three unique novellas: Orbital Decay , Dead Kelly and the previously unpublished The Bloody Deluge.
Comissioning Editor David Moore on the collection:
“This has been a true labour of love for me; Afterblight is one of my favourite Abaddon worlds, and it’s been great helping uncover new corners of the world and introduce new readers to the series. And I’ve been lucky in my authors; Colin, Malcolm and Adrian are all hugely talented.”

Monstrous Little Voices
Released 8 March 2016
Magic, Michief, Love and War
It is the Year of Our Lord 1601. The Tuscan War rages across the world, and every lord from Navarre to Illyria is embroiled in the fray. Cannon roar, pikemen clash, and witches stalk the night; even the fairy courts stand on the verge of chaos.
Five stories come together at the end of the war: that of bold Miranda and sly Puck; of wise Pomona and her prisoner Vertumnus; of gentle Lucia and the shade of Prospero; of noble Don Pedro and powerful Helena; and of Anne, a glovemaker’s wife. On these lovers and heroes the world itself may depend.
These are the stories Shakespeare never told. Five of the most exciting names in genre fiction today – Emma Newman (Planetfall, the Split Worlds series, 2015 British Fantasy Award for “A Woman’s Place” in Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets), Jonathan Barnes (The Somnambulist, Cannonbridge), Adrian Tchaikovsky (Shadows of the Apt, Children of Time), Foz Meadows and Kate Heartfield – delve into the world the poet created to weave together a story of courage, transformation and magic.
Including an afterword by Dr. John Lavagnino, The London Shakespeare Centre, King's College London.
