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."


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.
