THE LAST BIG THING
In the spirit of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, BLACK MIRROR, and TALES FROM THE CRYPT, cult author David Moody presents eleven disturbing science-fiction, horror, thriller and suspense stories about life, death, and everything in between (and after).
What’s the ultimate body modification? Are the people next door as perfect as they appear? How dead is dead? What’s the true price of a clean start? What’s the motive of the monster that’s destroying your town? How are you going to spend the last three days before the end of the world?
From the never-ending nightmare of domestic bliss to the search for the perfect body; from messed up families to warring nations; from the last minutes before doomsday to the polluted shores of the post-post-apocalypse; THE LAST BIG THING shows how thin the line between the ordinary and extraordinary truly is.
“THE LAST BIG THING is a deeply impressive and highly accomplished set of short story horror fiction, and firmly cements Moody’s reputation as one of the masters of British horror writing.”— SCIFI AND FANTASY REVIEWER
