The year is 2112, and humanity is giving up its fight against the zombie hordes. And Death himself has risen in their place — this time, the dead will stay dead.

The crippled U.S. government and its military forces are giving up the century-long fight against an undead plague. Born of an otherworldly energy fused with a deadly virus, the ravaging hordes of zombified humans and animals have no natural enemies. But they do have one supernatural enemy: Death himself.

Descending upon the ghost town of Jefferson Harbor, Louisiana, the Grim Reaper embarks on a bloody campaign to put down the legions that have defied his touch for so long. He will find allies in the city’s last survivors, and a nemesis in a man who wants to harness the force driving the zombies — a man who seeks to rebuild America into an empire of the dead.

“A strange and intriguing novel from first page to last, Empire is a top pick for horror fans.” – Small Press Bookwatch

“Thought-provoking and seriously badass.” – HorrorNews.net

When a series of man-made and natural disasters strike the USA, altruistic rock star Dante Benedick (aka “The One”) must travel back through time to rescue the world and the love of his life. He will have 168 hours to attempt to stop the suicide of Isabella Bellwood, the President’s daughter, which may alter the course of history and prevent the Great Destruction.

Whispers about Out of Time

“Let me start right off by saying that Connie Wilson presents what I call ‘matter-of-fact’ horror. She writes solid, declarative sentences rife with dark undertones. No fancy description for Connie. No sentimental musings. No soft emotionalism. Just hard-edged documentary-style storytelling. Jolting objective sentences made all the more disturbing by their cool directness. Frankly – and I consider myself well-read in the shock genre – I have never encountered a style such as she displays. Connie Wilson’s dark talent is unique, and readers will stagger away from her icy tales, stunned and groggy.” – William F. Nolan, Author of Logan’s Run and Nightworlds
