"A cracked carnival of a book - pendulum rides, freak shows, and the best damn shooting gallery. You'll gasp, grin, and line up for more." - Glen Berger, Emmy-winning author of Song of Spider-Man


When college student Jimmy Johannsen returns to his small hometown to mourn the death of his sister, the last thing he expects to find is a nuclear holocaust. This colorful strip of Navajo desert, once his humble home, has erupted in chaos, and strange rumors are shuddering through what remains of the town. But disaster is only the beginning...

Now, with his shocked, hayseed mother under his arm, Jimmy must defend himself against a storm of horrors, as well as the wrath of the town's dwindling survivors, whose history adds up to a deadly sum of guns, conspiracy, and bad blood. Will Jimmy and his mother escape the harrowing desert and find safety?

Welcome to Thunder, Arizona-a small town with a big secret. Beneath its blackening skies, evil lies in wait.

Ari Loeb's apocalyptic debut explores both the fears you already know, and the ones you can only imagine. It is survival horror in a clown car, and the monsters scuttle out to no end.

Loeb is a Los Angeles-based award-winning writer and stuntman, specializing in creature horror such as Zombieland: Double Tap, Fear The Walking Dead, and the Resident Evil video games.

"I believe all horror lovers will agree. Loeb has an amazingly gifted talent for spinning a tale." - Reader Views (5 STARS)
