John K. Press’ The True West vs the Zombie Apocalypse is a mixture of ultra-violent undead slaying action, deep philosophical insight — based on the teachings of Julius Evola, Ernst Jünger, Carl Schmitt, and others — and devout religious inspiration, all from a right-wing, ethnic and traditionalist perspective. Within a reimagined Roman Empire, young gladiators prove their worth and fighting spirit to the jubilant approval of a rejuvenated Western audience, and an army of emboldened crusaders marches forth to crush the menace of moral degeneracy and societal decay emanating from a United States in terminal decline. Hordes of flesh-eating zombies pitted against warriors of valor — who will be victorious in this epic struggle?
Reminiscent of the mad fatalism and deep symbolism expressed in Moby Dick, and inspired by the bleak brutality described in Blood Meridian, this is an archetypal American novel that tells us of a new society awakened with hope and built through pragmatism, as well as a new frontier, both literally and metaphysically, being carved out by tenacious men of grit, daring, and deep faith in both their roots and their progeny.
