About this ebook

In the spirit of THE TWILIGHT ZONEBLACK MIRROR, and TALES FROM THE CRYPT, cult author David Moody presents eleven disturbing science-fiction, horror, thriller and suspense stories about life, death, and everything in between (and after).

What’s the ultimate body modification? Are the people next door as perfect as they appear? How dead is dead? What’s the true price of a clean start? What’s the motive of the monster that’s destroying your town? How are you going to spend the last three days before the end of the world?

From the never-ending nightmare of domestic bliss to the search for the perfect body; from messed up families to warring nations; from the last minutes before doomsday to the polluted shores of the post-post-apocalypse; THE LAST BIG THING shows how thin the line between the ordinary and extraordinary truly is.


THE LAST BIG THING is a deeply impressive and highly accomplished set of short story horror fiction, and firmly cements Moody’s reputation as one of the masters of British horror writing.”— SCIFI AND FANTASY REVIEWER


“A head-spinning thrill ride, a cautionary tale about the most salient emotion of the 21st century… HATER will haunt you long after you read the last page…” —GUILLERMO DEL TORO (director of PAN’S LABYRINTH, THE SHAPE OF WATER) on HATER

“Moody is as imaginative as Barker, as compulsory as King, and as addictive as Palahniuk.” —SCREAM THE HORROR MAGAZINE

“Moody has the power to make the most mundane and ordinary characters interesting and believable and is reminiscent of Stephen King at his finest.” —SHADOWLOCKED

“British horror at its absolute best.” —STARBURST

His seminal zombie novel AUTUMN was made into a movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. Moody has an unhealthy fascination with the end of the world and likes to write books about ordinary folks going through absolute hell. Find out more about his work at and
