Murph and Rory Caulfield are two regular kids in the small town of Coombs in rural Virginia. When their uncle goes to fetch the local sheriff after finding "something bad" on his farm, the boys go to check it out for themselves. What they find is more than just bad, though - it could kill them and everyone they know.
The race is on now. First to escape, then to find out what's happened to their family and their town. If they can do that, they can think about finding a safe place to hole up away from the horrors that pursue them.
But day zero is here, and maybe there are no safe places. Not any more.
Virginia Day Zero is a sci-fi short story about the end of the world.
