"The dead congregate. The living collide."

In a postapocalyptic world, two strangers intent upon their own survival meet on the road amid a pile of fallen corpses. As one flees the other, their tense and dramatic encounter begins. And over the next 24 hours they will force each other to confront what it means to be human in a world haunted by the dead.

Brilliantly imagined and expertly told, this novella, set in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, reveals profound truths about the human condition as it grapples with the social, psychological, and philosophical implications of living in a lawless world where humans have re-entered the food chain.

Always driving forward with no extraneous motion, this story tackles universal apocalyptic/dystopian themes head on, not unlike The Road, I am Legend, and even The Walking Dead before it. But unlike its predecessors, it reaches very different conclusions about how we, as a species, would cope with and adapt to such a world--conclusions that are both provocative and unexpected.

Once you start, you won't put it down!
