Murph and Rory Caulfield are two regular kids in the small town of Coombs in rural Virginia. When their uncle goes to fetch the local sheriff after finding "something bad" on his farm, the boys go to check it out for themselves. What they find is more than just bad, though - it could kill them and everyone they know.

The race is on now. First to escape, then to find out what's happened to their family and their town. If they can do that, they can think about finding a safe place to hole up away from the horrors that pursue them.

But day zero is here, and maybe there are no safe places. Not any more.

Virginia Day Zero is a sci-fi short story about the end of the world.



"A huge talent" - Steve Mosby (Black Flowers, The 50/50 Killer)

"Cregan writes breathlessly classy pulp" - Daily Telegraph

"One of the most talented and original voices out there" - Jason Pinter (The Fury, The Darkness)

Perhaps it was intentional but it wasn't very well written which made it hard to read. It was, however, very interesting. Also - and this is no fault of the book - it was depressingly hopeless.

Great short story

Not the usual kind of story I go for but I really enjoyed this. For a short story, you really get attached to the two main characters. Full of shock and suspense, I'll definitely be looking out to read Dark Zero!

Good short story and it's a nice companion to Day Zero novel, it ties in nicely and gives some perspective, of how other people/characters experienced Day Zero, pretty cool!
