Empire of Monsters

Monsters are real. 

In the husk of an abandoned city, ghosts haunt the streets, dinosaurs hunt in the parks and mythical creatures stalk the neighborhood. The only human survivors have been forced back to an encampment on the outskirts. 

Kate remembers the city before the monsters appeared, and is prepared to fight to reclaim it from them. Zing, the youngest, has only ever known a life behind the walls of the encampment - but that's about to change. Tyler and Gary, two petty criminals on the run, realise they've landed in hot water when their spacecraft crashes nearby. 

The monsters are getting more aggressive, and supplies are dwindling. Will they escape? Will the monsters get them?

The Future Boys return! Bad Bat Books presents Empire of Monsters, a new novella from Steve Jordan, available to pre-order now on Amazon. Out June 14th!

Future Boys Release Date.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign at the beginning of 2017, the first 2 episodes of 'The
Future Boys' will be released on Saturday 24th June 2017 via iTunes and SoundCloud.

Having spent two years apart and taken up new identities, Tyler and Gary are unwittingly brought back together by Rik Sheringham, a galaxy-renowned treasure hunter, celebrity and old school friend/enemy of Tyler's. Sheringham's deal is simple - Tyler and Gary must undergo a series of daring and dangerous heists on his behalf, or be handed over to the authorities and forced to face the death sentence that has been looming over their heads for years. Can Tyler and Gary re-unite and stay on the same page long enough to complete the job? Or are they doomed to fail? Either way, there seems to be more to the jobs than a simple robbery, and Sheringham's intentions may not be all they seem...

The Future Boys: Episodes 1 & 2 in the bag!

Hi everyone! We're pleased to report that the live recording of episodes 1 and 2 of 'The Future Boys' on Thursday at the Leicester Square Theatre was a complete success! To those of you who came out for the recording - THANK YOU. You were a terrific, receptive, funny, loud, intelligent audience - the atmosphere in the room was incredible and we can't wait to hear the end result. We'd also like to thank our incredibly talented cast - Adam Joselyn (Gary), Cliff Chapman (Tyler), Emma Stirling (Laura/Kathy), Robert Dearn (Rik/Security Officer/David), and our technical wizards Tom Bexon and Jonny Else. What a team. Also thank you to the Leicester Square Theatre for being lovely hosts.

So, when can you listen to the episodes? We're then hoping to commercially release the episodes around June/July 2017. Kickstarter backers will receive them in May.
