Editorial reviews

Nicholas Tecosky gives a savage performance of the apocalyptic novel The 7 Habits of Highly Infective People by speculative fiction writer William Todd Rose. Protagonist Bosley Coughlin has the ability to travel through time. On his voyages, he sees crumbling cities filled with the undead. Survivors struggle to find food and water. Back in the present day, he encounters Clarice Hudson, whom he recognizes is harboring the contagion that causes the end of the world. Bosley is faced with tough moral choices - what action will he take?

Publisher's summary

Bosley Coughlin can travel through time. And the future does not look good.

Through a heady cocktail of drugs and the occult, Bosley slips through time and space and glimpses The End. Cities lay in ruins, and those who still cling to life hide in the rubble like frightened animals. Walking carcasses shamble through the debris exacting a horrible fate upon any living they find.

This horrific future is the only world fourteen year old Ocean has ever known. Starving and alone, she struggles for even the most basic of necessities: food, water, shelter, love….

In the present, Bosley stumbles across Clarice Hudson and soon realizes that she is much more than a simple shop girl. One by one, she displays the seven symptoms of the contagion that will bring Bosley’s world to an end and create the nightmare Ocean calls home. Clarice may hold the key to stopping the coming apocalypse and sparing Ocean from the atrocities of mankind’s imminent future… but only if Coughlin is willing to push beyond every notion he’s ever held about right and wrong.

“There is a very TERMINATOR-esque feeling to the narrative… deserves a spot on your shelf.” (T.W. Brown, author of ZOMBLOG)
"I kept imagining The Dude (from The Big Lebowski) telling a drugged out version of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine… This is a book that is really worth reading…” (BuyZombie.com)

Unusual take on the zombie apocalypse

This book is told from the perspective of a man from our own present, and an orphan girl who grows up in the world after the zombie apocalypse. Neither of them are the kind of "good guys" you usually read about, but they are good, in their own ways. An excellent read.
