A Thousand Miles to Nowhere: An Apocalypse Thriller is a work of fiction set in the dark supernatural genre, and was penned by author David Curfiss. Playing with the usual tropes of the zombie genre to create something truly unique and more intense, Curfiss’s dark tale begins in a world where a deadly virus has already been plaguing the planet for fifteen years. Protagonist Matt Tanner is a survivor at heart, but when a stranger arrives with a letter and a fresh batch of the infection, Matt must make a choice about his immediate future. There’s a chance of a reunion with a brother he never expected to see again ... if he’s willing to face all hell to take it.

Author David Curfiss writes with a great sense of pacing in this slow-burning yet constantly creepy horror novel. There’s a sense of danger lurking around every corner as you turn each page, and Curfiss has a knack for balancing moments of sudden, shocking action against quietly tense scenes of emotional grief, the loss of friends and survivor’s guilt. Protagonist Matt Tanner is an ideal vehicle for these themes, highly relatable in his everyman style and his approach to leadership and survival. There’s real heart and grief in the close narrative, but also high contrast in the well-described action scenes and the visceral presentation of Curfiss’s unique brand of wasted-away zombies. Overall, A Thousand Miles to Nowhere: An Apocalypse Thriller is a highly recommended read for horror fans looking for a high-quality zombie thriller.
