NAMING OF PARTS by Tim Lebbon, intro by Steve Rasnic Tem, cover by Alan M. Clark. Harrogate, UK; PS Publishing; 2000. 1st edition trade paperback.
Imagine waking up alone. It's dark outside. It's silent. The world is dead...
And the dead are walking.
Jack Haines and his parents begin a journey across an altered landscape to a town where, perhaps, they may find help... and Jack's sister, estranged from the family for years.
It was his sister who once told Jack that to name his fears was to confront and deal with them.
In a world where reality has been turned on its head, there is much to be afraid of. So he walks and he thinks, and he sees some terrible things.
And he names the parts of his fear to keep it at bay.
His only hope is that, when they arrive at the town, they'll be ready for what they find.
