FOR THE FIRST SEVEN DAYS OF MARCH 2020,
WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE “DEADHEADROOVIEWS” SPECIAL FEATURE
WEEK LONG CELEBRATION OF
“THE ROO” BY ALAN BAXTER!
“This all started with a ridiculous situation on Twitter. There was a news article going around with the headline: ‘Australian Town Terrorised By Muscular Kangaroo Attacking People And Eating Gardens’. You’ll find it by searching for that sentence online. A more Australian story is hard to find.
When author Charles R Rutledge responded that it sounded “like something Zebra Books would have published back in the day”, Kealan Patrick Burke (superb author and excellent cover designer) mocked up a brilliant old school horror novel cover in response. Several of us started joking about how a cover that cool really should be on an actual book. One thing led to another, and as I was the Aussie in the conversation, people started saying I should write it. ”
