Back to the "Hood",
This review is from: Not All of Them about Zombies (Paperback)
This is an ideal collection of short stories for short attention spans, people who read on the go, people who think they're too busy to read, and big girls (and boys) who just wanna have fun.
The witty storylines and sometimes absolutely brilliant concepts are well-written, to the point, and never, ever boring. The author, via the introductory pages, includes his thoughts and the inspiration for each story, so by the time you start the first story you're already at page 27.
1. Selling Liberty: One girl, One sword, Two thugs, One twist
2. The Happily Ever After: Red Riding Hood survives her traumatic childhood incident and changes her name to Redcape. She flirts with a stranger, dances around a wolf, and lives happily for a while.
3. Au Naturale: A young man's experiences a real live natural woman. (Explicit)
4. Just a Fluke: A man wakes up and finds out that he's not quite himself. The longest story is one of the best in this collection.
5. Zombies: The shortest is the one that's actually all about zombies
6. Breakdown: A rescue mission that goes awfully wrong
7. Guardian: Old man with a mission
8. Harry: When imaginary beasties cross the line
9. Don't Fear the Reaper: A day in the life of Death
10. Good Intentions: Two-bit hood fails ignition test
11. Redbird and Eleanor: Back to the "Hood"
"Keepin' It Short" Summary (KISS): Small collection - eleven short stories and a long introduction- and as promised, not all about zombies.
To quote from the final page:
"Parting is such sweet sorrow - unless it involved a chainsaw, in which case you're probably just glad it's over"
