Summer of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: John Palisano
What is your latest zombie release?
DUST OF THE DEAD
Quick description of it (no spoilers)
Reboot the apocalypse!
For a while, it looked like the living had won.
The war against the walking dead lasted almost a decade, but it’s mostly over.
There are only a few straggling zombies left to take care of.
Los Angeles has returned to its lattes and long commutes.
It’s up to a small Reclamation Crew to clean up the Zoms left behind.
But when the undead dry up, their skin turns to dust.
Now the hot Santa Ana winds deliver a new threat…
because the Zoms were only the beginning of something far worse.
Something unique about it.
It’s after the first zombie apocalypse has mostly ended, and a small group works to cleanse the few remaining reanimates. The story is not centered on a band of well-armed outlaws on the run, but with how people are rebuilding…until something even more catastrophic takes hold when the dust from the decaying dead starts a new fever…
