Read full description of the books:
Primarily set in the northern Bahamas, this book weaves its story of post-apocalyptic survival into the local sub-tropical seascape and the sailing culture that can be found there. With its evocative use of real locations haunted by zombie-like infected and atmospheric depictions of the trials of life at sea drawn from the author’s own experiences, For Those In Peril On The Sea provides a new and unusual take on the traditional post-apocalyptic genre.
From the back of the book:
After a six week voyage across the Atlantic, they couldn’t wait to get to shore. When they got there, they found the land would never be safe again...
There was nothing to suggest it would be anything more than a routine delivery. Four people thrown together by chance, sailing a newly-built catamaran from South Africa to Miami. But while they were away, something happened, something none of them could ever have imagined. When they get back to civilisation, they find it no longer exists. The land is no longer safe. Their only option is to stay on the boat and try to survive.
Join Bill, Rob, Jon and CJ as they travel around their frightening new world. One where they must struggle against the infected that now rule the land, the elements and each other.

Read information about the authorColin M. Drysdale was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He studied Zoology as an undergraduate at Glasgow University and has a doctorate in whale biology from the University of Aberdeen (also in Scotland). As part of his work, he has travelled extensively, and has spent time sailing around the west coast of Scotland, Newfoundland, Labrador, the Bahamas and Florida. He has also spent time in St. Helena, Vancouver island and has travelled overland across Canada and from Hong Kong to Glasgow by train.
While he was written countless academic papers and six technical books under is real name, he chose to publish his debut novel, For Those In Peril On The Sea under a pen name to help keep some separation between his non-fiction and his fiction writing.
Much of the landscapes and locations referred to in For Those In Peril On The Sea are real places that the author has visited or spent time in, especially when working in the northern Bahamas, gathering data for his doctoral thesis.
July 2014 will see the publication of his second novel, The Outbreak, which is set in the same world as For Those In Peril On The Sea, but which follows a new cast of characters as they try to escape from a city as it is over-run by the newly mutated Haitian Rabies Virus. As with the first book in this series, there is a strong element of the sea and sailing culture, although this time of the author's native Scotland rather than the sub-tropical setting of For Those In Peril On The Sea.
A third book will be added the For Those In Peril series in summer 2015, which will see the characters in the first two books united as their story lines finally collide.
As well as well as writing novel, Colin M. Drysdale has also published an anthology of short zombie and post-apocalyptic stories, which is currently available in paperback and as a Kindle ebook called Zombies Can't Swim And Other Tales Of The Undead. This contains 23 short stories, ranging in length from flash fiction to full length short stories which have previously available through his blog.
