Book Description

The day after tomorrow: Nuclear fallout. Mutations. Deadly pandemics. Corpse wagons. Body pits. Empty cities. The human race trembling on the edge of extinction. Only the desperate survive. One of them is Rick Nash. But there is a price for survival: communion with a ravenous evil born from the furnace of radioactive waste. It demands sacrifice. Only it can keep Nash one step ahead of the nightmare that stalks him-a sentient, seething plague-entity that stalks its chosen prey: the last of the human race. To accept it is a living death. To defy it, a hell beyond imagining

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute blast May 4, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the 3rd novel I've read from the criminally underrated Tim Curran, the 1st two being the absolutely killer Hive and Dead Sea. This book is alot of fun. The book is a gore and apocalyptic fiction fans dream. If you love fast action featuring hideous and squishy nuclear mutants mixed with enough gore and putresence to make even the most hardened stomachs churn, then this is the book for you. I'm a seasoned horror fan and even I got a tad queasy (but in a good way). The writing is tight, fast paced and incredibly addictive. If you're a fan of the splatter of early Peter Jackson films, enjoy the horrible mutants in games like Resident Evil and Fallout or just in the mood for an utterly balls to the wall nuclear nightmare then be sure to pick this up. Just don't read it while you're eating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Ending August 24, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book on all levels, especially the ending. It keeps you moving through it with great action, characters and settings. There are no dead spots or confusing situations. The Shape is an interesting twist on post-apocalyptic entities. It is a book well worth reading a second time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biohazard July 3, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was very creative and entertaining. From the savage clans, the mutated rats, and other monstrosities, this book definately leaves a impression on the reader. Tim curran is a very underrated author and I look forward to reading his zombie epic, Ressurection!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Non stop kill Ride October 20, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second book I've read by Curran. The first being The Devil Next Door, which I enjoyed more than Biohazard. It's a good book, don't get me wrong but the pacing is almost too fast in my opinion. The action never stops or slows at all it seems, so you become rather desensitized to the copious amounts of gore and savagery over time. It also has quite a bit of typos towards the end. It seems like the editor just gave up somewhere in the last 70 pages or so.

it is an entertaining read however and a quick one to boot. if you like fallout, pestilence, mutants, uber violence, and all out carnage you will probably enjoy this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Started Well But Ran Out of Steam June 6, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author has the ability to put together a riveting, scary story. It started off well and although it really got "out there" with some of the post apocalyptic settings, it really kept me on the edge of my seat. However, the ending just plain old stunk. I just can't believe it was the best he could come up with. If he could have finsihed well, I would have given this at least 4 stars, however with the ending (last 75 pages), it's more like 2.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Post-Apocalyptic Gore-Fest September 10, 2010
Let's start with this:

"He dug into the mess, letting limbs and bones and globs of offal fly... Then he happened upon a head. The head of a teenage girl. The face was nothing but fungus and corpse jelly oozing from the white skull beneath... It hit the pavement like a moist, soft pumpkin and broke right apart at his feet... wriggling in the human carnage of bone and limb... Misshapen like deformed fetuses, they wormed through the cadavers and skinless husks like maggots in pork."

Offended? Disgusted? Grossed out? If so, you don't want to read this book, but if you're still with me, then Biohazard, by Tim Curran, might be your kind of story.

It starts with Rick Nash, survivor of the bombs, nuclear winter, and plagues that wrack the country, as he realizes enough is enough, and decides to join his dead wife. But with the knife on his wrist, he hears a voice in his head, and makes a deal with The Shape, a mystical being described as "a ravenous evil born from the furnace of radioactive waste."

The deal offers protection and prompts him westward, while compelling him to choose a human sacrifice at each full moon. Joined by a small group of companions, Nash sets off on a trip across blasted landscapes inhabited by hellish creatures, all the while pursued by an even more enigmatic force that haunts their dreams.

Biohazard isn't going to go down in the annals of post-apocalyptic literature as an all time great, but it represents it's particular sub-genre well. It has more putrescence, rot, slime, mucus and ulcerated flesh than any book I've ever read. Horrible misshapen creatures, scabs, trogs, and mutants abound. There's plague, blood rains, radiation sickness and more bands of cannibalistic crazies than you can shake a disembodied femur at.

Having read Curran's zombie epic "Resurrection" and being a huge fan of anything PA (post apocalyptic) it really comes as no surprise that I stumbled across "Biohazard" and enjoyed every single minute I spent reading it.
Of course I am always partial to these kind of novels. I'm a huge sucker for anything with world destruction, rather it be asteroids, floods, zombies, plagues, or in this case nuclear war. And you would think that after years of reading this genre I would be sick and bored of them. This is not the case, especially with Curran.
Yes, the idea of world destruction by atom bombs is a frightening one, but Curran makes it even worse with his demented, highly graphic, and thouroughly original book on the survivors of a world wide nuclear planet.
I've read some pretty dark, demented, dirty and depressing books in my lifetime, but Curran's "Biohazard" takes the literary cake. Not only is it full of some of the most descriptive, stomach inducing scenes of plague infection, radiation sickness and general violence, but it is lightening quick, moving along at a breakneck, and unending pace. I lost count of how many times I stayed up late into the night, just trying to get to a suitable stopping point, but never really finding one as every scene, every page kept me totally enthralled and captivated.
Of course "Biohazard" is unbelievably trashy, and cheap. Many words were spelled incorrectly or used in the wrong form (new, knew) and of yes it was the literary equivalent of a '70's grindhouse, slasher, exploitation film, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Curran has to be, today, one of the most unknown, and ridiculously underrated authors writing today.
