On October 1, God is in His heaven, the stock market stands
at 10,140, most of the planes are on time, and Clayton
Riddell, an artist from Maine, is almost bouncing up
Boylston Street in Boston. He's just landed a comic book
deal that might finally enable him to support his family by
making art instead of teaching it. He's already picked up a
small (but expensive!) gift for his long-suffering wife,
and he knows just what he'll get for his boy Johnny. Why
not a little treat for himself? Clay's feeling good about
the future." "That changes in a hurry. The cause of the
devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as
The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone.
Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors
who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black
night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos,
carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its
basest nature ... and then begins to evolve." There's
really no escaping this nightmare. But for Clay, an arrow
points home to Maine, and as he and his fellow refugees
make their harrowing journey north they begin to see crude
signs confirming their direction: Kashwak=NO-FO. A promise,
perhaps. Or a threat.
