Pearly Stockwell and the Undead Wizard Horde


An ancient curse (because there cannot ever be any other kind) caused the school friends of Henry Half-Prince to become bloodthirsty undead wizards intent on eating their way around the world. In order to get to the bottom of things, or get on top of the same things, Pearly Stockwell had to infiltrate Hogwash College and stop this thing dead in its tracks before the world was eaten alive by a band of bloodthirsty teenage undead wizards.

Pearly sat in the great big dining hall surrounded her new classmates. A decayed hand was shoved into her face.

‘Hi, I’m Reg,’ said a redheaded lad in the early stages of decay. ‘You must be new here. What house are you in?’ Pearly looked up from her gloomy magic supper.

‘Mindyouownbusiness,’ she said. ‘It’s a new one. Have you heard of it?’ Reg smiled his best dim smile.

‘I’m in Brokendoor,’ he said. ‘We’re the best zombies in Hogwash.’

‘Don’t say zombies,’ said a small girl sitting next to Reg. ‘We are undead-wizard-apprentice-sorcerers,’ she said. ‘Zombie sounds so old and obvious-sounding.’ The small girl smiled at Pearly.

‘Hi, my name is Hermetical Rangefinder and I’m in Sparrownose. I’m sure we are going to be the best of friends.’

‘Are you?’ said Pearly with a face like B-movie thunder.

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.
