Five years after an unexplained global phenomenon wiped out most of humanity, Josie Revelle and her small band of survivors travel up the eastern seaboard looking for a better life but instead find burnt-out cities and a deadly black fungus choking the countryside. In an attempt to escape the blight, they run straight into an even graver existential threat: An invading paramilitary force seeking to wage war against the Unhumans, mysterious beings who hide in the shadows and are believed responsible for the deadly infestation. As a horde of barbarians storms in from the west, Josie’s band is torn apart, and she soon finds herself choosing an unlikely ally in the looming conflict … a decision that could pit her in battle against her closest friends.
Generation 0: Unhumans, the sequel to Generation 0, is available at amazon.com in the US and Europe:

This grim and harrowing survival story makes the perfect Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa present, provided your friend/loved one likes to spend their holiday reading novels full of dirt, blood, and rotting corpses.
There’s this other junk in there about the human condition and finding strength in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, but that’s the dumb, old nonsense that English teachers like. YOU CAN TOTALLY IGNORE IT!
Published by Permuted Press, GENERATION 0 is recommended for readers 14 and up. It’s pretty gruesome in places.

Josie, a social misfit whose best friend is a switchblade knife.
Shawnika, a bookworm with a dark side that erupts when threatened.

Zane, a psychopath amused by suffering and murder.
As the world descends into gang warfare and the dead rot in the streets, their every moment becomes life or death. Every choice blurs the line between good and evil. Every action chips away at their humanity. And when a maelstrom of events forces their paths to cross, they’ll each will discover what they’re really made of.
