The Last Town on Earth Summary : Set against the backdrop of one of the most virulent epidemics that America ever experienced–the 1918 flu epidemic–Thomas Mullen’s powerful, sweeping first novel is a tale of morality in a time of upheaval. Deep in the mist-shrouded forests of the Pacific Northwest is a small mill town called Commonwealth, conceived as a haven for workers weary of exploitation. For Philip Worthy, the adopted son of the town’s founder, it is a haven in another sense–as the first place in his life he’s had a loving family to call his own. And yet, the ideals that define this outpost are being threatened from all sides. A world war is raging, and with the fear of spies rampant, the loyalty of all Americans is coming under scrutiny. Meanwhile, another shadow has fallen across the region in the form of a deadly illness striking down vast swaths of surrounding communities. When Commonwealth votes to quarantine itself against contagion, guards are posted at the single road leading in and out of town, and Philip Worthy is among them. He will be unlucky enough to be on duty when a cold, hungry, tired–and apparently ill–soldier presents himself at the town’s doorstep begging for sanctuary. The encounter that ensues, and the shots that are fired, will have deafening reverberations throughout Commonwealth, escalating until every human value–love, patriotism, community, family, friendship–not to mention the town’s very survival, is imperiled. Inspired by a little-known historical footnote regarding towns that quarantined themselves during the 1918 epidemic, The Last Town on Earth is a remarkably moving and accomplished debut. From the Hardcover edition.

The Last Village Smithy Summary : One of the large sliding doors on the south side of the shop was wide open and Henry went through it on a dead run followed closely by the angry ox. Henry ran completely through the shop and out an open door on the garage end. Luckily, the ox was slowed somewhat by its new iron shoes which didn’t provide much traction on the hard concrete floor. But, it knew where Henry went and charged out the door after him. Chapter 3: the Ox Shoe Incident The next morning while Frank was doing the milking, Tex came slowly limping into the barn on three legs. One ear was badly torn and his white fur was caked with dried blood. “Thank God you’re back. We had given you up for dead,” Frank told him. The rest of the milking would have to wait. Chapter 8: Frank Wood’s Muck-land Potatoes What was in that cabinet? What was so valuable or secretive that it needed to always be locked away? Moreover, why didn’t Henry, who knew just about everything about the town, know what was inside? Or, was it a secret and he wasn’t telling? As youthful curiosity will often insist, one day I just had to have an answer. Chapter 12: Town Hall Tales When the spray of water hit the fire and hot bricks, it instantly turned to a huge quantity of steam. The steam immediately changed direction and exploded out the top of the chimney. The steam explosion launched many bricks and one very startled fireman off the roof still clutching the writhing fire hose as if it was an enraged python with a bareback rider. Chapter 17: the Cellar Savers It would have been priceless to see the expression that must have come across the face of the car’s driver as his headlights caught the sight of that sled full of kids passing him and pulling ahead.

In the United States: the nation's great cities become hunting grounds. New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles...all fall victim to hordes of shambling dead who want to devour the living.

The Last Season Summary : The safe in Ken's basement was a gun safe almost the size of a refrigerator. It weighed four hundred pounds and was bolted to the wall. With a few turns of the dial Ken opened the safe and pulled out a wooden box and handed it to Adams. He opened the lid, took out the knife and handed it to Sara. "It's exactly the same as the others," Adams said. Ken took the disc out of the safe. "The computer is in my office upstairs." They were all anxious to see what the disc contained, yet they were afraid of what they might find. Ken downloaded the disc and printed the document. Adams retrieved the paper from the printer and went to work circling every third letter in from the end of each word. Sara and Ken sat in wait as Adams decoded the message. "Oh no!" Adams looked as if he saw a ghost. He handed her the decoded message and she began to read. With every word she was trembling more and more
