I purchased this collection because I am a big fan of James Everington, one of the authors featured within.
Unfortunately, I have already read his contribution "First Time Buyers" because it was included in a previous collection. (I very much enjoyed this story and I did review the collection in which it appeared, The Other Room.)
So three stories remain:
Lillies- by Iain Rowan- was a different take on reanimation. This is not a zombie short by any means. It is a unique and poignant read.
Cargo-by Aaron Polson-This was also a unique story. There was no punch at the end though, this one was very subtle.
Lastly, Invasion of the Shark-Men- by Alan Ryker. This was my favorite in this collection (sorry Mr. Everington!). Not only was this story unique, it was told in a fascinating way: through the videos of a friend who had since disappeared. It was realistic, different and chilling. LOVED IT!
I think the cover of this collection is excellent as well. It puts one right into the proper state of mind for the stories to follow.
So what I am left wondering is, will this be a continuing series? The introduction leads to me believe that it will. If so, I would like to know when I can expect the next installment? Please don't make me wait too long!
