Z.A. Rechts First Zombie Novel : The Morningstar Strain


The guys at Permuted Press wanted to share with us the synopsis and cover art for the first novel in Z.A. Recht's apocalyptic zombie saga "The Morningstar Strain: Plague of the Dead".  Permuted Press will release "Plague of the Dead" in mid-late 2006. Here's the synopsis for "Plague of the Dead":

The end begins with a viral outbreak unlike anything mankind as ever encountered before. The infected are subject to delirium, fever, a dramatic increase in violent behavior, and a one-hundred percent mortality rateā€¦  Death. But it doesn't end there.  The victims return from death to walk the earth.

When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead it escalates into a global pandemic. In one fell swoop, the  necessities of life become much more basic. Gone are petty everyday concerns. Gone are the amenities of civilized life. Yet a single law of nature remains: Live, or die. Kill, or be killed.

On one side of the world, a battle-hardened General surveys the remnants of his command: a young medic, a veteran photographer, a brash Private, and dozens of refugees, all are his responsibility--all thousands of miles from home. Back in the United States, an Army Colonel discovers the darker side of Morningstar virus and begins to collaborate with a well-known journalist to leak the information out to the public...  The Morningstar Saga has begun.

I wont lie I am not huge on the cover art but the story sounds interesting. Feel free to share your views.
