Following the sudden appearance of super-abilities in the region’s teenage population, Hemsby is the latest town to be razed in their journey of destruction, according to the plot of East Anglian author Alexander Gordon Smith’s latest novel, The Fury.
“I felt a bit bad, but it was just the way the story went as the plot developed,” Mr Smith told the Eastern Daily Press, adding “It’s nothing personal. I love Yarmouth, and the Norfolk coast is one of the most beautiful places in the country. We go out to the beach all the time. But in the book, sadly, it needed to go.”
The Fury is Mr Smith’s eighth childrens’ novel, and he has also written two creative writing handbooks, and is the founder of Egg Box publishing, an independent, non-profit organisation designed to publish and promote new writers, and is the co-owner of Fear Driven Films, a Norwich-based production company filming its first horror feature in 2013.
