Here's a new story!

A new kind of apocalypse...

What if the apocalypse came--and it was beautiful?


When a virus leaps the species barrier in “Glorious Plague,” by Karen Heuler, people all over New York and New Jersey start singing and climbing to the rooftops, to the bridges, to lamp post and road sign, steeple and water tower, singing gloriously, triumphantly, tirelessly—and dying. When it’s all over, Manhattan has to rebuild a new society, and it seems to be having a lot of help in the form of angels, gods, and walking myths. What’s real? And does it really matter? It does to Dale, searching for her missing daughter, and to Omar, an entomologist searching for the cure, if there is one, with little interest from those in the grip of the new order.

"Heuler manages to create a parody in this beautifully designed novel - a poke into all the religious versions of the end of the world and in doing so supplies us with human interest and the grand human comedy in the Greek sense. This is a glorious `what if' novel, told with such conviction that it seems entirely possible. Can the apocalypse be like this? The way things are going at present it is not outside the realm of possibility. How I would love to see the creators/​producers/​directors/​audiences that constantly applaud every variation of Marvel comic book stories and related absurdities get hold of this book. Now THERE is entertainment."--Grady Harp, top Amazon reviewer

"This quirky and smart postapocalyptic novel works brilliantly ... " --Publishers Weekly
