Stock up on supplies and barricade your doors - the zombies are heading for Huddersfield.

That’s according to the plot of Birkby writer Andy Komarnyckyj’s new novel, which uses the town as the backdrop for his geo-political gore-fest.

And although the title may sound like pages stuck together in your TV Guide, Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse has been racking up rave reviews on Amazon.

Andy, 60, who writes under the pen-name Jack Strange, sets his final scene in St George’s Square as the undead take over the town.

Andy visited the Longley Park Kia showroom to sign copies of the book, which has been described as a “caustic satire about Britain’s North-South divide”.

He said: “I was thinking one day about zombies and how most books and films focus on them mauling others to turn into more zombies, but if they had their way would that mean eventually they would run out of food?

“I thought maybe the zombies were originally people working in the food industry, like chefs.

“I decided to write something on intelligent zombies who wanted to turn us into their slaves.”

Author Andrew Komarnyckyj aka Jack Strange, signs his latest book at Longley Park Kia showroom. Longley Park's Managing Director John Waite has his book signed.

The book, which is set to hit local Waterstones soon, also has a political twist.

“The zombies start off in Clacton-on-Sea”, Andy added. “But the Prime Minister decides to lure them to Huddersfield and bomb the town because it is further away.”

Andy, a semi-retired legal consultant, has previously written two books on inheritance tax and probate laws - a world away from the zombie extravaganza in his novel.

And hot on the heels of its release, he is already partway through the sequel.

“The next book will focus on cat zombies as I like the idea”, Andy added.
