When the dead rise and walk the earth, the Undead seize their chance . . .
Nursing student Hannah Jordan knows things are bad when her mother dies while giving birth to a son. She knows things can't get much worse when her mother gets back up and tries to have the baby for breakfast. When she's forced to put her mother down like a rabid animal, only one certainty remains: Hannah will do whatever it takes to stay alive and protect her baby brother.
The only survivors out of a family of survivalists, Hannah and the baby ride out the zombie apocalypse in their family's backyard bunker, emerging months later to find a world taken over by the newly self-appointed saviors of humanity: a race of vampires hellbent on preventing the extinction of their food supply.
Hannah does not welcome her new vampire overlords; but in a world where hordes of flesh-eating zombies roam the earth, she hasn't much choice. When her medical training gets her picked by the vampires' resident doctor to join his research team, she soon discovers that it's more than just an opportunity to escape the prison camps with her brother. It's also a chance to help restore humanity's freedom through the development of a vaccine against the zombie virus--one that might also provide a cure for vampirism. But will they complete their work and save what's left of humanity before they're discovered and shut down?

A rabies-like super virus bleeds into Melody’s neighborhood, turning all those infected into ravenous aggressors. While watching society crumble beyond her threshold, Melody hides in the safety of her attic, waiting for her husband to return. Four days have passed, and it’s becoming apparent that he’s not coming home. She pushes her fear aside and propels herself out the front door, with a baseball bat in hand, ready to venture across town on a mission to save her husband—and their failing marriage.
However, after teaming up with her neighbor John, her determination is put to the test. Despite butting heads with the man next door, she develops an unsettling attraction to him, and they grow to rely on each other for strength and friendship.
Unsure if her husband is still alive, her reasons for going on are called into question and it doesn't take long before she begins to doubt her strength.
Fair Haven is a viral-outbreak horror story laced with personal struggle, romance, and a tasteful smattering of shoot’em-in-the-head action.

| Wormwood Dawn: Collection One: Episodes I-IV |
by Edward Crae, Shawn E. Crapo
$0.00, 489 pages, 4.4 out of 5.0 (10 reviews), #83 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Post-Apocalyptic
This collection contains the first four episodes of Wormwood Dawn, one of the most disturbing and unique looks at the apocalypse through the eyes of the not-so-heroic.
Dan was a less-than-average loser on the brink of a meltdown. His rampant alcoholism and drug addiction have rendered him worthless and without any direction or ambition. There was just nothing worth living for anymore. Then, one morning, a mysterious orange fog descends from the sky after Earth passes through the tail of a comet. People everywhere begin dying, and those that survive either lock themselves in their homes, or become stark raving lunatics. Having spent his life on the fringe of "normalcy," Dan must gather his wits and learn to survive this unknown plague that has toppled the world around him. Only by using everything at his disposal--along with his lack of empathy--can Dan avoid the horrors that have taken over the world.
Together with Drew, a somewhat close friend from a neighboring town, Dan begins to discover the difficulties of surviving the new world. Not only must they face the horrors of raging, blood-thirsty infected, but those survivors who intend to take over. To make things worse, there are those among the infected that are far more terrifying than simple flesh-eating, mindless automatons. There are some that have retained their former minds--those that were not so friendly to begin with.
Taking place in South Central Indiana, Wormwood Dawn will take you on a journey through territories and locations familiar to residents of Bloomington, Martinsville, and their surrounding areas.

When a harebrained scheme to swipe forty pounds of pot from Russian mobsters goes awry, the Wizard thinks he's got problems. But when a giant evil talking dog shows up and starts raising the dead, things get a little more complicated.
As the end grows nigh, it's up to Wiz and his ragtag cohorts (along with a binge-drinking voodoo god) to fend off the hungry horde. Will they make it? Or will everything go up in smoke?
A hilarious, gut-busting, skull-crunching homage to B-movies everywhere. Funnier than The Illyad... Scarier than Brokeback Mountain... Dumber than Breakfast of Champions... Significantly shorter than Dune... It's Zen and the Art of Cannibalism.

March 1st (Night)
Quakes, at least three. Warmed up fast, and all the dirty snow that was piled along the streets has melted. Torrential rains. Thunder and lightening in the snow storm that came after sunset. Didn't last long; turned back to rain. Parts of the projects are burning. Jersey is burning. The sky is red-orange, everything across the river is on fire. No one has come.
Harlem ~ March 6th
Donita sat on a stool in the kitchen writing in her little notebook. Something was going on out in the world. Something, and the news was covering it up. The local news had been canceled. First at noon and now again at five. There had been no strange weather today, but the time was still off. Really off. The days were longer, no doubt about it at all.
There were fires burning out of control in the projects. No firemen had come. No cops. Nobody at all. There had been Earthquakes, or at least the ground had shaken. Explosions somewhere? Was it Earthquakes? It seemed like no one knew.
Donita didn't know anyone who owned a phone. A real phone. Real phones were a thing of the past. But a real phone would have been good now, because something had happened to all the cell phones. The bars had dropped to nothing. How could that even be, she had asked Bear. There were towers all over the place! Nevertheless, they had ceased to function, and she now found herself wishing for a real phone.
Bear had rigged up a C.B. radio and they had listened to that for a while. Twice a voice bled through claiming to be from somewhere in Jersey, warning everyone to stay away. The voice claimed the city was on fire. Union City? North Bergen? Edgewater? They didn't say, but it looked like all of Jersey was burning, just like parts of New York. There were gangs fighting for control of what was left here, probably the same there. The voice went on to say the dead were rising and walking the streets.
“Feds?” Donita asked.
“Feds landed and took over the streets?” Bear supplied.
Donita shook her head doubtfully. “I hope so, because it sounded like dead... The dead are walking the streets...” She trailed off and turned her eyes back to the windows; night coming, noise winding up in the projects, low hanging gray clouds that slipped past the windows...
