I've always feared that would happen.
What do you mean would... It has... Which is why I have retreated to my lair of half decent music and booze...
I take it your favorite pub is full of quasi-chavs lately.
Damn white-bread zombies.
That's the best explanation for people that play their entire ringtone list in public...
it gets better: late night, in the a&e in leeds, playing something indecipherable right under the sign saying "no mobile phones" just outside the emergency room.
That is more horrifying than the flesh eating zombies.... and I am from Pittsburgh... zombie capital
So nice to read something on the internet today that isn't all "LOL SATAN", thanks.
Why... Why does he have to be sooo right... if only it was all fantasy...
Damn, and there's more of them than there is of us.
And surely suicide isn't even an option. Damn them! Damn them all to Hull
Change the pop culture references a bit and this is pretty much what the 1980's looked like from my point of view.
*laugh* Thanks. That was far better than watching religious arguements and whiners on lj and reading letters from lawyers at work.
The end came, and nobody noticed...
I think that'd work as a title.
I'm excited to see more of these.

Re: Because someone has to ask....
If you have to ask the question, you'll never understand the answer.
"Would you like to meet a ghost?"

This is the way the world ends...
"...not with a bang, but a whimper."
Coddled to death by the politically correct. Spoonfed thoughtless tripe until we couldn't form an opinion if we wanted to.

Re: This is the way the world ends...
Nothing wrong with being politically correct. We can get fucked off with anyone, regardless of gender, race, orientation, class, etc.
and the nonsense of the apocalypse is lessened by the wise words from the ellis man.
I jsut realizied ive been reading nothing but your work all day. Stormwatch, Transmetropolitan, Hellblazer... its the apocalypse for some but today is Warren Ellis day for me..
and now I feel very cold and alone...
Time to stop drinking the beer and get the vodka.
I had independently concluded on my way back from lunch today (not two hours ago) that Coldplay was the music played on the elevator to Hell.

"with a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp"
Was this at all hard for you? Getting the story across in 100 words or less?
And while I'm asking questions - do you write everything down and then revise, or do you revise as you write?
Just curious. Thanks!

Re: "with a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp"
Flash fiction is easy for me. It came in at 102 words, I went back and clipped out a three-word sentence that was nice but unnecessary.
As a rule, I revise as I write, to keep everything moving and of a piece.
