The Eschatologist now in paperback!

The print edition of my post-apocalyptic horror novella, The Eschatologist is now available.


eschatologist3-smallThe paperback includes four black and white illustrations I created especially for this edition.

Released in January from Voodoo Press, The Eschatologist tells the story of David Brewer who is trying to keep his family alive in a world torn apart by a Biblical apocalypse. But there is hope is the guise of a mysterious saviour named Amos, who promises them sanctuary – in return for their devotion to God’s final and bloody plan.

Since being released in January, The Eschatologist has received several favourable reviews:

Greg Chapman opens the story with a gripping opening line, “The after-world was a canvas of ashen ruin painted by death.”

What follows is a story of family, sacrifice, and the scary idea that even in a world that has completely fallen apart there will always be a lunatic fringe.

You can read more of this review here –

Greg Chapman introduces us to the enigmatic figure of Amos in a post-apocalyptic landscape every bit as evocative as King’s Midworld. Here, the domestic aspect is strong … as a small family of memorable characters battles the blasted landscape and a prophet. A great premise all rendered in Chapman’s signature prose. – Matthew Tait, author of Davey Ribbon.

“Madness and murder and miracles all abound in The Eschatologist. Reminiscent of Barker’s early work, the end of the world has never been so bleak.” –Tim Marquitz, author of The Demon Squad

Available now in paperback from Amazon
