Good Boy by Thomas R Clark
“It's Watership Down by George A. Romero" - Brian Keene, author of The Rising.
"I bite, I shake, I pull and I tear. It's how I fight, and today it's how I die.” The brain worm plague decimated the human population and destroyed civilization. Infected small animals turned into bloodthirsty killing machines, feeding on other animal survivors. Led by an intrepid Jack Russell Terrier, a diverse fellowship of animal companions struggles to stay alive. When the safety of their lair is compromised, the motley pack embarks on a dangerous journey to find a new home. They soon learn infected squirrels, bats and skunks aren't the only threat in this horrifying new world. The spirit of classic animal adventures like Watership Down collides with survival horror in Good Boy the debut novella from Thomas R Clark.
