Where to buy it



The compelling, terrifying story of a devastating virus. Have you ever imagined what it would be like to kill someone? Wondered, in your darkest secret thoughts, about the taste of human flesh? What if you woke up and began your morning by devoting the rest of your life to a murderous rampage, a never-ending cannibalistic spree? And what if you were only one of thousands who shared the same compulsion? Well, today's your lucky day: in fact, by this afternoon, the predators will outnumber the prey.

Pontypool Changes Everything depicts just such an epidemic. It's the compelling, terrifying story of a devastating virus. You catch it through conversation, and once it has you, it leads you on a strange journey — into another world where the undead chase you down the streets of the smallest towns and largest cities.

Editorial Reviews


“It grabbed me from the first page and would not let go.... It’s damning with faint praise to say that this is the best Zombie novel ever written. This is just a great novel, period.” — Premium Blend

Pontypool Changes Everything may be one of the most genuinely horrifying horror novels — as opposed to simply discomforting, sickening or terrifying, although it is all of these as well — that I have ever read.” — Horrorscope
