It is April 20, 2003. California is overrun with zombies. Nobody knows how the infection started. Nobody knows why. With California gone, nobody knows if the rest of the world is still out there, or if everyone else has turned.
In this ensemble psychological horror novel, four survivors come together to fend themselves from the restless undead. But after months of living in an uninhabited California, fear and isolation leaves scars in the sanity of every survivor. As a character study, Fear Of The Dead examines the personal stories of four people in a world where death is everywhere, and hope, however dire, may be all that keeps them alive.
