Bara Cailín 3: 34 ‘Writing. Thinking. Reading.’

‘We want shot of the lot of you!’ sneered the voice. ‘You lot and your reading and writing and thinking.’

If ignorance and distrust has a voice (which it so clearly does) then it would sound just like this one.

Mac listened in stunned silence as the rant continued.

‘Culture means nothing to us anymore. Nothing, I tell you. The Past is just a place where you stupid people live. Writing. Thinking. Reading.’

The voice’s face came very close to Mac now.

‘We’re turning back Time, saving the country from the likes of you and your band of boring biddies.’ The voice was so angry now that Mac’s neighbour renewed her sobbing.

‘Now, not another word out of anyone until we get there,’ it yelled.

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at You can also find him on Twitter @BarnabyFTaylor.
