William Todd Rose reinvents the zombie story with a thrilling novella of a post-apocalyptic America where saviors are heroes . . . and heroes are killers. A fatal virus-a biowarfare experiment unleashed on an unsuspecting world-has reduced the once-mighty United States to a smattering of tribes dueling for survival in the lawless wilderness. The disease-free folk known as Settlers barricade themselves in small villages, determined to keep out the highly contagious Spewers-infected humans who cannot die from the virus but spread the seeds of death from the festering blisters that cover their bodies. Tanner Kline is a trained Sweeper, sworn to exterminate Spewers roaming the no-man's-land surrounding his frightened community. As all Settlers do, Tanner dismisses them as little more than savages-until he meets his match in Spewer protector Lila. But when hunter and hunted clash, their bloody tango ignites a firestorm of fear and hatred. Now, no one is safe from the juggernaut of terror that rages unchecked, and the fate of humanity hangs on questions with no answers: Who's right, who's wrong . . . and who's going to care if everyone's dead? Advance praise for Apocalyptic Organ Grinder "With strong echoes of Richard Matheson's I Am Legend, William Todd Rose's Apocalyptic Organ Grinder delivers on all fronts. The action is brutal and the blurring of man and monster intelligently and inventively handled. Rose has written a smart thriller with a ton of heart."-Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Savage Dead and Inheritance
