The last stop for independent sci-fi online
In a future plagued by legions of undead creatures, both human and animal, the earth is a dark and dangerous place — not only for the few remaining humans who still cling to life, but for a unique group of zombies who remain mysteriously self-aware, torn between their new-found cravings and a lingering moral sensibility. Armed with reason, and impervious to death, their world is one of darkness — a nightmare from which they cannot awaken. Will they resign to their fate, wandering aimlessly, never sleeping, never dying? Or will they recognize their curse for what it is: the gift of limitless power?
Xombie is the story of Dirge, a dead man with a mind of his own, who struggles against his posthumous cravings (not to mention legions of the walking dead) to reunite a lost child with her family. With the help of his trusty undead canine, Cerberus, our hero treks across the hostile future wastelands, facing zombified creatures of every shape and size.
Can Dirge protect a single child against the unrelenting armies of the dead? Will he discover other zombies like himself? And if a monster (no matter how grotesque) saves a human life, is it really a monster after all?
