Here’s the set-up:
The End of the World starts on the Gulf Coast
Multiple hurricanes wreak unprecedented devastation on Houston, Texas. The Serenity Six—genetically altered test subjects for a viral strain known as Serenity—escape the state prison in Huntsville to gorge their appetite for murder on society’s survivors. They soon become the acolytes of Id, a being of immense power and wanton appetites, who steps into our reality to prosecute mankind and destroy morality. And one family steps up to the fight—a family experiencing its own turmoil caused by a contentious divorce. The Stand meets 28 Days Later in this epic tale of genetic manipulation gone awry. There’s no such thing as an ordinary hero.
5-star Amazon reviews:
“Engaging story telling, believable characters, and the end of the world meet head on in The Serenity Strain.“
“This was a gripping novel with great, fully-fleshed out characters. Facing Armageddon has never been this much fun to read, so be prepared for all of that and more in Apocalypse Weird.“
“… a fast paced read that just kept dragging me back for one more chapter. Highly recommended…”

About the author:
Currently residing in College Station, Texas, Chris Pourteau has made a living at one time or another as a teacher, a lab technician helping to recover one of Christopher Columbus’s ships, and a technical writer and editor.
Pourteau cites writers both modern and classical as influences, notable among them Bernard Cornwell, Stephen King, George R.R. Martin, Toni Morrison, Edgar Allan Poe, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Mark Twain. Other major influences include fellow Texan and singer-songwriter James McMurtry, Groucho Marx, and a little-known comedy troupe from England you’ve probably never heard of named Monty Python. (Python is always happy to have someone shill their name as long as they don’t have to pay for it and might get a chance to sell you something, so there you go, guys. Regards from Texas.)
As far as reading interests go, Pourteau prefers fantasy, science fiction, and historical fiction, which you could probably guess from his list of influences. Occasionally, he likes taking random chances on new writers–new to him, anyway–and has recently become enamored of the works of Roberto Calas, Nick Cole, Suzanne Collins, Tess Gerritsen, Manel Loureiro, and John Scalzi among others. He’s also a die-hard Star Trek fan and prefers gritty dramas like Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels, Homeland, and The Killing when he flips on the tube.
