Apocalypse Now NowKill BaxterKill Baxter is the exciting sequel to Charlie Human’s incredible speculative fiction debut, Apocalypse Now Now:

Namibiana Buchdepot has shared a short excerpt from Kill Baxter in which you can read the application form sent in to Hexpoort, the school Baxter detests so much but ends up having to protect. It makes special note of Baxter’s unconventional genetic make-up:

“Baxter is a unique case. His genetic lineage is a strange hybrid of Siener, the Afrikaner mystics active primarily during the Boer wars, and the Murder, the shape-shifting giant Crows that have been responsible for the deaths of many in the Hidden community.”

Read the excerpt:

Applicant: Baxter Zevcenko

Age: 16

Baxter was brought to the attention of the Hexpoort admissions faculty by the MK6 agent codenamed Tone. As with any potential student, careful attention must be paid to his genetic history, magical skills and psychological make-up profile. The following profile was compiled from extensive MK6 surveillance of the subject and interviews with all involved in his case.
