The end of society looms in the late 23rd century. When all is said and done most of the world's living population is gone. The few that remain are scattered and mistrustful of each others. The settlements are scattered, with no common links.
From the dead arises a new threat, the dead themselves. Undead, rotted shells of what they had been, yet still alive. They challenge the living. They challenge the very existence of peace, calm, the old societal illusions.
These are the individual stories of the survivors. Where they came from, where they are going to. L.A. - N.Y. - AL - from the south, the west and the east the survivors head for the one place that begins to rise from destruction. Looking for peace again. Looking for safety. Looking for sanity.
