Welcome to the Planet of the Dead and Novel Virus by Sylvester BarzeySuzanne Bowen
Read the Planet of the Dead book series by Sylvester Barzey (shown in the video wearing a Suzahdi handcrafted Rick Grimes suede cosplay leather jacket.) The future is stranger than we dream of, right? Phew, that is 2020 for planet Earth! The series draws from The Walking Dead TV series. It places the protagonist, a strong black woman, named Catherine Briggs, in the midst of an apocalyptic world of zombies and schizophrenic perverts. You feel her dying to find creatures she can trust to help her find the beautiful family she has lost during the dark chaos. Be thoroughly on the edge of your seat as Catherine braves your worst nightmares.
It’s 2019, and the wall that the president threatened to build has come to fruition. That should have solved all the nation’s problems, right? That is what he promised. But…the president is missing. On top of that, an unknown virus shocks the world and seems to threaten the extension of humanity. People die, but they don’t stay dead for long.
A super confident and mouthy mamacita, Catherine loses what matters to her most, her family. It is the apocalypse! Her Army career prepared her for the visible enemies, sort of, but definitely not the invisible ones. On the other hand, law school prepared her for liars, but life is no fun when you cannot trust anyone. The evil lurking beyond the apocalypse’s mask is in the form of desperate survivors. Some ditsy sorority girl surrounds Catherine with hell in the eery quiet of dark night. But worse is the backwoods circus of clowns who plan in detail to enjoy Catherine and other humans for daily dinner with salt and pepper on top.
Just as COVID-19 has planet Earth scientists and medical professionals confounded as of July 23, 2020, Catherine is blindsided over and over with the results of the novel virus threatening to rule the new planet of the dead.
The Walking Dead Season 10 trailer was delayed by the real-life health pandemic caused by COVID-19. The timing and coincidence of the two, season 10 and the novel coronavirus, have broadened worldwide interest in The Walking Dead TV show as well as in viruses in general. A spoiler in the trailer includes the fact that a favorite character rejoins the crew… Maggie, not Rick Grimes. Maggie has many fans, but there is a huge and growing fanbase who pray fervently for the return of Rick Grimes who cosplay and love him in his tan jean jacket and his suede leather jacket that so many covet.
As the Amazon description shares very well the conundrum: “Can a modern day wonder woman survive long enough to be reunited with her family or is hope the only thing that stays dead in the Apocalypse?”
