Overview

Great Britain, 2014. Civilisation as we know it has been torn apart by war. This once peaceful nation has been transformed into a melting pot of chaos and desolation.

Death stalks the land. The towns and cities are home to the dead who have learned to walk again, driven by a single desire to consume the flesh of the living. The countryside is the abode of marauders, lawless men driven by starvation, fear and evil.

There is talk of worse to come, dark fiends inhabiting the irradiated lands of the south, beings who have risen up from the radioactive ashes of war.

Here and there dwell pockets of innocence, good men and women whose daily mission is living to see another dawn. But the dark tide has not receded, and the dawns are certainly numbered. Welcome to the Green and Pleasant Land.

The Green and Pleasant Land; Old World is an introductory book that follows the fate of the Locklear family as they deal with the unfolding crisis. Forced to flee the cities they must traverse a nation sliding into Armageddon, along the way they are confronted by cadavers, mutants and even darker horrors that are emerging in the post apocalyptic world.

Meet the Author

Oliver Kennedy was born in Hertford, UK. He has written many works in his time, some of which have actually been good enough for him to allow other people to read them. Though traditionally an epic fantasy writer, he has recently tried his hand at the horror genre, and has found exploring the dark side of his imagination an intriguing and appealing process.

Oliver's great ambition is to inspire and leave behind a legacy of creativity. He is currently working on the next in the Green and Pleasant Land series entitled 'Amidst the Falling Dust' which will be available from Christmas 2013.

A number of Oliver's other works including fantasy epic 'Beyond the Dream' are available now on the Amazon Kindle.
