Overview

“Gotta take care of your own, boy.” Those words from his Pa didn't dampen the sting of having to put down his rabid dog. A loyal friend that was suffering from a disease that turned him into an unrecognizable monster.
Jessie had no idea that there would be a lot of "taking care" in the next few months.
When neighbors show up on the farm dazed and bloody, Jessie and his Pa do their best to help their friends, but soon find that there is no way to help those that are already dead.
Jessie must make the transition from boy to man in an instant as the dead rise and try to take over the farm that was to be passed from father to son when the time was right.
As Jessie and his Pa make their way through this new and frightening reality, one phrase rings as true as ever.
"...life goes on, remember that.”

    This is an incredibly emotional tale of a young boy having to learn the hardships of life and death quick. I am a huge Jerry McKinney fan and this one did not disappoint. Jerry has a way of making his characters come alive for me. I fell quickly for Jessie and the decissions he had to make pulled on my heartstrings. I would HIGHLY recommend this or any of Jerry McKinney's other stories!

    THAT WHICH DOESN'T KILL US . . .

    Even if it's the end of the world as we know it, life will still go on. That's the message in this deceptively simple tale by Jerry W. McKinney, who writes with an uncanny gift for capturing reality in all of its gritty and sometimes garish glory, with a lean yet descriptive style that reaches out and touches your heart while gripping you by the throat. Sometimes he rips your heart right out of your chest. In this story, families are not safe when the people around them begin to act "funny". A boy and his father are at the center of McKinney's moving drama, which employs a zombie apocalypse as a conflict and yet is breathtakingly down to earth. Events span months rather than days, but the story is narrated in an effortless manner with immense perfection and skill. This is one of the author's finest creations, and one you cannot easily forget. A reminder of how fragile our flesh-and-blood existence can be at the best of times. When everything has changed around us, it might be the only thing we have left. Or the very thing that threatens us most. Read this if you love horror, zombies, or just an excellently written story with emotional impact and depth of character. Read it because if you don't, you will have missed a vital experience.

    Jerry pens "Flesh & Blood" in a fast paced, well written plot filled with emotion, adventure and zombies. A story of a boy, Jessie, who has to grow up fast and make decisions that no boy should ever have to make. His characters were well developed, believable and realistic. Make no mistake, this is not your usual zombie story, it's so much more than that and one that grips you from the start. I totally enjoyed this short story and highly recommend it to all horror zombie fans.

    He does it again! Jerry gets the reader sucked into the drama in the first couple pages and before you know it, the story is over and you are wishing you had more. The elements are all there: father and son dealing with a tramatic event and Pa teaching his son "what it's like to be a man." The drama continues with zombies creeping up to their farm and what happens next is another life lesson for Jessie as Pa helps him tackle an even harder issue. I love the language and for such a short story it has a great punch! I felt like I was a fly on the wall watching the drama unfold on this story as the language was so well written and refined. Will definitely be keeping and rereading this one again.
