White Zombie is an anthology novel featuring stories of the survivors of a strange flu-like virus that kills in twenty-four hours, bringing the dead back to a horrible un-life.

All the survivors have one thing in common: they are all black. Whatever it was that caused Mongoloid and Caucasoid’s to adapt different skin tones and racial features as they migrated across the globe created a weakness in their DNA that the strange virus could latch onto. Now they have all died, leaving a world of flesh-eating monsters.

Not all the stories will feature a character of color. Some might be about those who died, or are dying. The point was that I wanted to use the zombie theme as a way to explore racial issues, as well as create a horror story that features prominent black characters, something horror movies seem to have a shortage of.
