When the Agent X virus first struck, the victims became voracious killers intent on contaminating every last soul. And X spread like mad…
The entire eastern seaboard of the United States has been ravages by the contagion, wiping out all signs of hope, faith, or rational thought. Off this desolate coast is a refitted nuclear sub, a 560-foot steel tomb cutting through dark waters and commandeered by a crew of survivors—including Sal DeLuca, who lost his father during their flight from Agent X. When he leads a team to scavenge for food and supplies on land, he comes across a squad of seemingly welcoming mercenaries. But he’s about to find himself trapped between new terrors on the surface and mutiny below.
Who is Walter Greatshell?
From Walter’s web site: “To answer that question, we must go back a long way…all the way to 1962. To the time of the Beatles and Ed Sullivan and John F. Kennedy. Back to the sleepy little hamlet of Torrance, California, where in the hushed maternity ward of Harbor General Hospital, a new life is about to be born…
Etcetera etcetera - fast forward to the present. Nowadays I live with my wife and son in Providence, Rhode Island. When not writing satirical horror novels a la Xombies, I dabble in freelance illustration (with an eye to creating dark children’s books, comics or graphic novels), humorous nonfiction (a throwback to my early days as a freelance journalist and arts critic), and stage acting (most recently in local productions of Oedipus Rex and Karel Capek’s R.U.R.). Which is to say I’m unemployed. The last real job I had was as a graveyard-shift nuclear-submarine technician, and before that I was the general manager of a Providence landmark: the Avon Cinema. What I do next is anyone’s guess.”
