Americosis Vol 1 by Haydn Wilks

(eBook; 2015: novella)

From the back cover

"A naked man arrives in New Mexico claiming to have traveled through time.
He says that he's America's savior.

"A bizarre sexually-transmitted infection in New York takes control of people's bodies and burns them out in an incessant drive to infect others.

"And a Presidential candidate is conversing with angels.
"His aides think he's crazy.
"The electorate might not agree with them.

"It could all be madness. It might be the apocalypse."



Review

Americosis Vol 1 is a fun, fast-as-slut-sport New York-to-Texas tale containing sex, violence, gore, science fiction and humor. Wilks's work here is entertaining and worth owning, if you enjoy sketched-out characters and are okay with word rush apocalyptic set-ups for longer stories -- set-ups that have not-quite-cliffhanger endings.

Followed by Americosis Vol 2.
