Anti sentient by Linda J Butler
Strange things are happening in Los Angeles: a vintage guitar shop owner finds a strange woman lingering near his shop as he closes up for the night; a homeless man attacks a waitress returning home from the late shift; the residents of a West Los Angeles apartment complex are awoken in the middle of the night to discover a group of strange people attacking a man in the building’s courtyard. In each instance the attackers move slowly and unsteadily, with eyes that are milky white and teeth like razors. Similar events are happening all over the city. Videos of the attacks have begun to filter onto the internet. The media is blaming the outbreak of violence on terrorists. The actual cause is far more insidious. The only hope to stopping the outbreak can be found at the headquarters of Nardock International, a drug research company secretly testing a new gene therapy, Anti-Sentient 6, on human subjects. Inside the headquarters’ walls, a test subject has begun to metamorphosize into a creature, devoid of humanity. The fate of the City of Angels depends on what happens within the next few hours.
After a layoff, Linda J. Butler returned to school and graduated from Mount St. Mary's College
with an M.A. in Humanities with an emphasis in Creative Writing. Anti-Sentient began as a
writing assignment for a short novel class. With the encouragement of the course's professor,
she shopped the finished product around for publication. She signed with Spore Press, a
publisher specializing in BioSciFi
A native Angeleno, Linda is a technical editor residing in West Los Angeles, CA. Â Her love of
horror began at a young age with the exposure to such classic horror films as, "Night of the
Living Dead" and "The Last Man on Earth".Â
Linda's second novel will be out within the next year.
