My friend spent last week sealed inside a nuclear bunker

You might have heard of my friend Sean T. Page. He’s an all-round good egg. He’s also the hugely successful author of the Zombie Survival and Alien Invasion Haynes Manuals (which he recently followed up with the Zombie Survival Transport Manual). Not only that, he also contributed the brilliant, and not a little disturbing, 1975 to last year’s Infected Books YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE project.

Trawl the archives of this site, and you’ll discover that there’s another side to Sean. A few years back he had himself sealed into a decommissioned nuclear bunker for a week (check out my report here), then followed that up with a week alone in the Sinai desert.

Last week Sean went back down into the bunker for another stint and, as before, he filmed a video blog each day. I’ve a couple of connections with that bunker which I wrote about here and here, and it was also the inspiration for parts of THEM OR US. Knowing what I know about the place, I can’t decide whether Sean’s incredibly brave or just plain crazy. Whatever the answer, I present his most recent video transmissions for your viewing pleasure.

Recommended reading – Sean Page’s ALIEN INVASION HANDBOOK

Stuck for Christmas ideas this year? Want to get that certain someone a present that a). they’ll like, b). will keep them occupied for hours and c). might just save their life? Look no further.

alieninvasionMy good friend SEAN PAGE has released a follow up to last year’s smash hit ZOMBIE SURVIVAL HAYNES MANUAL. This year he’s turned his attention to the ever-present threat of ALIEN INVASION. As always, Sean’s take on things is frighteningly comprehensive, and incredibly funny. Looking for an authoritative history of alien contact? It’s here. Want to know how to prep yourself for the aliens’ arrival? Sean’s your man. First-contact protocols, alien combat techniques, space defences… this book covers everything.

You can get hold of a copy now from Amazon, The Book Depository, Hive, Indiebound, Waterstones, WHSmith and many other retailers.

And I don’t know if Sean was trying to tell me something or if this really was a genuine mix-up by the good folk at Haynes, but the Alien Invasion manual wasn’t the first book they sent me…
