Apocalypticon

Clayton Smith’s astounding debut novel that redefined the post-apocalyptic genre.

“Clayton Smith has written a wacky novel about the end of the world…[he] can definitely write. His dialogue is snappy, his powers of description are terrific, and he has plenty of imagination.” – Windy City Reviews

“Equal parts Mad Max and Monty Python…one hilarious, harrowing and heart-wrenching tale.” – Stephen Luna, Author of the Joe Vampire series.

Three years have passed since the Jamaicans caused the apocalypse, and things in post-Armageddon Chicago have settled into a new kind of normal. Unfortunately, that “normal” includes collapsing skyscrapers, bands of bloodthirsty maniacs, and a dwindling cache of survival supplies. After watching his family, friends, and most of the non-sadistic elements of society crumble around him, Patrick decides it’s time to cross one last item off his bucket list.

He’s going to Disney World.

This hilarious, heartfelt, gut-wrenching odyssey through post-apocalyptic America is a pilgrimage peppered with peril, as fellow survivors Patrick and Ben encounter a slew of odd characters, from zombie politicians and deranged survivalists to a milky-eyed oracle who doesn’t have a lot of good news. Plus, it looks like Patrick may be hiding the real reason for their mission to the Magic Kingdom…
