School's Out! In a whole different way...

Welcome to the Abaddon Twelve Days of Christmas! Over the next dozen days we’ll be highlighting the best of the year from Abaddon to give you the perfect Christmas gift ideas for the SF/fantasy/horror fan in your life.

On the first day of Christmas, Abaddon Books gave to me... one omnibus of post-apocalyptic novels, which made me grateful for my little Christmas scene. With most of the population gone, the kids don’t know what to do, so the girls and boys of St. Mark’s went back to school. Only they don’t worry about classes or exams. They have more danger in the form of cannibals, fanatics, bullies, and armies, than help on hand. This holiday enjoy the fiction that School’s Out Forever – at least it is at the end of the world.

The three original volumes of the complete School’s Out trilogy, now available in one!

 “After the world died we all sort of drifted back to school. After all, where else was there for us to go?”

Lee Keegan’s fifteen. If most of the population of the world hadn’t just died choking on their own blood, he might be worrying about acne, body odour and girls. As it is, he and the young Matron of his boarding school, Jane Crowther, have to try and protect their charges from cannibalistic gangs, religious fanatics, a bullying prefect experimenting with crucifixion and even the surviving might of the US army.

Welcome to St. Mark’s School for Boys and girls...
