For Those In Peril On The Sea.

To give you a taster of what the reviewer said, here’s an excerpt:

‘… For Those in Peril on the Sea is not a mere imitator of currently popular zombie books and films. Drysdale’s novel proves different and superior in concept as well as content. The infected are unusual in ways that make them seem terrifyingly real, and the idea of the survivors being trapped offshore is an imaginative and effective twist. While some scenes in the book can be graphic and brutal, Drysdale never allows them to become gratuitous, and each disturbing moment serves a purpose in the plot. The tone of barely suppressed terror is emphasized by the author’s willingness to write as ruthlessly as his story demands: readers will quickly learn that even those who seem most deserving of survival can quite easily fall victim to the infected. …’

      Thanks Jack. I was very pleased with this review (even though it took me a good five minutes to work up the courage to log on and read it after I got the email saying it had been posted!) and it’s good to know the reviewer made the effort to check out the website I’ve put together to accompany the book (

      There’s still three or four other potential reviews that I’m waiting to hear back about (all sailing magazines who requested review copies as it’s likely to appeal to their readers) but this is a really nice start.
