Do You Have a Cold—Or the Flu?

There’s a nasty flu going round. An epidemic, they call it. The posters say to cover your mouth when you sneeze, and throw away the tissue. But such simple measures won’t stop this flu. Because when you catch the flu, armed police come and lock you in your house to die alone. When you catch this flu, it kills you in days. And when you catch this flu, two hours after it’s killed you, your eyelids snap open again.

Wayne Simmons‘s Flu is a pulpy little number mixing Romero-esque zombie action with the troubles in Northern Ireland. Following various pockets of survivors Flu shows the raw emotions people experience when they make decisions that put their humanity on the line while trying to survive.

Flu is the first book to be published by Tantor in print, e-book, and audio format. Fever, book two in the Flu series is out now.
