Inside this hospital . . . the prognosis is terminal. For Staff Nurse Cat Harris, the night shift at her hospital in south London starts off like any other . . . But she isn't expecting the four girls who were attacked by a crazed stranger in a nightclub . . . the trio of local gang members involved in a shooting incident . . . or the spread of an unknown virus that starts bringing the recently dead back to a horrible semblance of life. Soon, heavily armed troops have the hospital in lockdown, and as the disease spreads rapidly through staff, patients and members of the public, a small group of survivors battle to stay alive against an ever-increasing army of the flesh-eating 'infected'. Set during the dawning hours of the Zombie Apocalypse, this gripping and gory novel reveals more about the reanimation virus as it expands out from All Hallows Church, the secret of the swarms of insects, what horrors haunt the Medical Museum and how, behind it all, emerges the sinister figure of Thomas Moreby himself . . .
"Zombie Apocalypse! was Stephen Jones' masterful entry into the zombie mythos . . . Morris is an old hand at horror, and treads the line between brutal violence and creeping tension. Utterly compelling, truly terrifying, and riveting reading. A worthy addition to the Apocalypse mythos."
MORPHEUS TALES #24 REVIEWS SUPPLEMENT, July 2014
"Stephen Jones' Zombie Apocalypse! trilogy was an anarchic and subversive treat for living dead fanatics . . . Horror Hospital is a biting satire and an entertaining read."
STARBURST, June 20, 2014
"In an overcrowded field, Zombie Apocalypse! Horror Hospital really does look like that rarest of finds: a zombie novel that is different."
