Overview

In a world overrun by the living dead, every victim has a story. These are some of those stories. This collection of six short stories from a world ravaged by the LZR-1143 virus tell the tale of six different people, all of whom fell victim to the creatures spawned by the deadly plague.

From the pilot of a commercial aircraft, overrun in midair, to the lonely soldier stranded high above a world of the undead, the six characters each face their own fears and mortality in different ways.

This 20,000 word short-story collection features a unique selection of characters from the original zombie novel by Bryan James, LZR-1143: Infection, and from the upcoming, soon to be released sequel, LZR-1143: Evolution. Each character appeared, or will appear, only fleetingly in the longer novels, but each has their own unique thread in the LZR-1143 storyline, all of which are exposed in these short excerpts from their final hours alive.

The collection includes The Pilot, The Boy, The Inmate, The Fry Cook, The Subway Passenger, and The Sniper. In The Pilot, a commercial aviator sees his last flight end in a way he never could have imagined. In The Boy, a family trip is cut short, and a lonely homecoming is not at all as he anticipated. We see the surprising genesis and true identity of a traveling companion of Mike McKnight in The Inmate, while The Fry Cook reveals the final moments of a teenage fast food worker. In The Subway Passenger, we learn that in the case of zombie apocalypse, you’d probably rather be aboveground. And in The Sniper, the surprising truth that there are some fates that cannot be fought, even with a fifty caliber rifle.

    This collection of short stories allows a glimpse into different lives/perspectives as people deal with the zombie outbreak.

    Elements of action, compassion, heroism, evil, etc entwine to show how even in times of stress, characters can demonstrate who they are and what they are made of.

    Characters are varied, flawed, and have lots to deal with physically and emotionally.

    Overall, an intriguing read.

    Loved this collection of short stories. Each one was fully flesh

    Loved this collection of short stories. Each one was fully fleshed out- to the point you just wanted more. If you have not read the other books in the series; get on it, lol! Really good stuff!

    Clarification

    Not 600 pages as a previous reviewer stated, at least not in nook format. 134 pages only! Have not read it all yet, as just downloaded, but that previous review was one of my deciding factors.
