AUTUMN (book one)

A bas­tard hybrid of War of the Worlds and Night of the Liv­ing Dead, AUTUMN chron­i­cles the strug­gle of a small group of sur­vivors forced to con­tend with a world torn apart by a dead­ly dis­ease. After 99% of the pop­u­la­tion of the plan­et is killed in less than 24 hours, for the very few who have man­aged to stay alive, things are about to get much worse. Ani­mat­ed by “phase two” of some unknown con­ta­gion, the dead begin to rise. At first slow, blind, dumb and lum­ber­ing, quick­ly the bod­ies regain their most basic sens­es and abil­i­ties… sight, hear­ing, loco­mo­tion… As well as the instinct toward aggres­sion and vio­lence. Held back only by the restraints of their rapid­ly decom­pos­ing flesh, the dead seem to have only one sin­gle goal – to lum­ber forth and destroy the sole remain­ing attrac­tion in the silent, life­less world: those who have sur­vived the plague, who now find them­selves out­num­bered 1,000,000 to 1…
