An interesting take on the zombie apocalypse with a few differences to set it apart from the average story (differences like a bite doesn't necessarily 'turn' the victim into a zombie; and the inclusion of an alien menace makes a nice twist at the end I feel).
Well written and good characterisation of the protagonist, setting up a good background for the full length novel Dead Earth: The Vengeance Road. A couple of things in the story were reminiscent of Stephen King's "The Stand", especially the shared dreams between characters.
One of the better short stories I've read in this genre.
All of that is entirely forgiveable, if the story is pulled off with style and skill. Now, the author here has a ton of skill, I'm not going to short-change them on that... but there's no real style. Everything comes across as flat and listless, with no real sense of depth or personality. There are some nice descriptions, but the story feels very 'paint by numbers', as if the author read/watched a load of other zombie stories/movies, and decided to cut and paste the bits that they liked into a new tale. Sadly, it hasn't quite come together. There's a lot of preamble, but once the first zombie arrives there are suddenly loads of them, as if the virus suddenly speeds up its progress just because the main character knows what's happening. Maybe it was meant to give the story a cinematic feel, but in truth it just felt a bit muddled.
Another thing that really bothered me and added to the muddled feeling: the main character notes how people in movies take everything in their wake while spouting one liners, and decides that's unrealistic. Within pages, he's doing near enough the exact same thing himself, and without explanation or elaboration, it just feels like poor storytelling.
There are some elements that you won't find in other zombie stories, but they came in too late and were frankly too banal to really add much life (ha!) to the set-up.Read more ›
This is well written with a good explanation for the zombies even if the ending does feel a little rushed. However it is the first part of series and perhaps should be judged on the length.
Without giving away spoilers. It is the story of a small town deputy at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse.
