Meet the Author

Hey!


Stories have always been a passion of mine. I read all the time! However, sometimes I've dreamed of a story, but couldn't fine a book or short story to fit that dream. I turned to writing to create what I can't find on the bookshelves.


Thanks,


Charles Miller

    Needs something more

    "Namalsk Zombies" is a moderate-length short story. The storyline includes a massive horde of loudly screaming/fast running zombies on an island somewhere in the former USSR, and one man trying to survive another day.

    The main character, Six, haphazardly fights his way through many slipshod military defenses in multiple locations for an unknown purpose. I found it disappointing that the point-of-it-all is never explained. However, the non-stop action was good, until the inconclusive ending.


    I have some issues with specific plot points. They are as follows:

    1. These zombies are straight out of the movie "28 Days Later". They appear to be infected with the "Rage Virus," based upon the given descriptions of them. Homages are fine, but should be duly noted in the introduction section.

    2. Somehow, these crazed screaming zombies have enough intellect and coordination to stop two moving trucks very quickly via the undercarriage while Six is driving them.

    3. The zombies are both fast and cunning. But, they cannot manage to enter an apartment building. How can they be so smart, and yet so dumb?

    4. Even stranger, the zombies can be disabled (permanently) with a single shotgun shell to the chest. Apparently, destroying the brain is not important here.

    5. Ironically, ammunition is low so Six uses his weapons on the semi- and fully- automatic settings frequently. And, he fills them with shot gun shells. How does that work exactly?

    6. The firearms that Six uses in this story warrant more attention to detail than the location, settings, and character development.

    7. Six consistently escapes by the skin of his teeth. Or, by the horde pausing to devour some less important living people.

    8. The ending was odd, because the outcome was not clear. (I know that Six will, eventually, run out of places to go.) More information is needed for adequate closure.



    Everything considered, it was a good "lone guy running from a horde" storyline. Unfortunately, a lot of the potential for a great zombie tale went untapped.

    This story is worth reading. I recommend it, but be prepared for more "suspension of disbelief" than usual.

    It was okay

    >>The writing is not bad, fast paced, perhaps to the point you do not really know the main character...or really care about him at all. This is a short story with possibilities- if more depth is added.
