Inteachán – Book Five: The Tallest Tower Crane 5: 3 ‘with hammers and chisels’

As the queues formed so people were appointed to civic landmarks and other cultural sites in the city and charged with their demolition. This phase of Terminal Transit required the population to destroy historic buildings with hand tools so as to make the destruction last longer and feel more significant to those forced to take part.

Under the watchful eye of the Defence Force whole families started dismantling  their appointed landmarks brick by brick, forced to work in return for the smallest of rations.

At night, these same families slept pitifully on the streets beneath ripped tarpaulins and other paltry shelters, huddled together in their absolute misery.

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.
