The Earth Dies Screaming


Did you survive? I awoke to a world that will never be the same again after what a leading earthquake expert is calling 'The Big One'.

A vague short rumble awoke me in the middle of the night, and Mamzelle S. sat bolt-upright then lay bolt-back down again. I've notified the BBC and they're sending a team 'round to do a reconstruction, as judging by the news I've seen, I've got the best story on the subject.

It's THE END.

Well not you lot, obviously, as you cower in dismay, waiting on the mutant hordes to sweep through your semi-detached lives, stealing your wimmin and shagging your soup. But not me, I'll be fine in this bunker all by myself until its safe to leave. Alone. With no-one to talk to, and this hand cranked generator for company. Don't worry about me. I'm used to solitude. Hallo? Hallo? Is there anyone the.....
