You haven’t read anything like ‘Basically Frightened’ before – a genre-busting mix of post-apocalyptic action, adventure and suspense all heavily laced with whimsy and observational humour. An unlikely hero, a global pandemic, a tentative venture into a fractured world, ‘Basically Frightened’ has been described as ‘Shaun of the Dead’ meets ‘Pushing Daisies’, a slice of fiction that embraces what ordinary people might do when ‘The Shakes’ begin. Meet feral kids, roaming bands of the moderately psychotic, minor local celebrities, plucky heroines, loveable old ladies, people whose love of certain popular sci-fi villains has gone too far and a mysterious organisation simply known as ‘Order’.
With much more to come, ‘Basically Frightened’ is the first glorious step into a very different kind of dystopia. So it’s time to lift up the shutters, eat the last Mars Bar and meet a brave new world.
Be thrilled, be amused, be mildly distracted…be ‘Basically Frightened’.
