West Kill Creek is a contemplative work of post-apocalyptic fiction set in upstate New York. A particularly lethal virus has rapidly wiped out most of civilization.

A hardy band of survivors does what it takes to stay alive, but the novel also reverberates with the echoes of local history and deep time, the beauty and terror of nature, the power and glory of books, current environmental and political issues, and actual events and places—such as Hurricane Irene, and the Gilboa Fossil Forest—and you couldn’t have all that without some conflict and romance.
