Overview

Features five diverse tales of the living dead from zombie fiction master Eric S. Brown!

SEASON OF ROT: Safe from the walking dead that rule the streets, a band of survivors holes up in a hospital. When their supplies run low, they must either migrate or trust a stranger who promises them salvation-except the stranger isn't who he seems to be, and neither are the dead.

THE QUEEN: To escape a plague that has turned most of mankind into ravenous cannibals, a crew of survivors takes refuge at sea. But supplies only last so long, and the crew must face their enemies on land in order to keep themselves alive and afloat.

THE WAVE: When a wave of mysterious energy from outer space washes over the earth, electronic devices fail worldwide and communications break down. Worse still, the energy alters human brain waves and turns billions of people into bloodthirsty animals. Only a small pocket of humanity is immune, but their only chance of survival may also be their grave.

DEAD WEST: The Civil War is over. The Confederacy is gone. But in the West, a new threat is rising. Accompanied by a regiment of inexperienced soldiers, a journalist ventures into the frontlines of a war against the walking dead, and the truth he finds there is far more frightening than any living corpse.

RATS: Rats are everywhere and can get into anything. And now they are swarming mankind. Those bit rise again as undead pawns in the rodents' onslaught, and no place is safe-no place except one. The problem is getting there before the rats' next attack.

    Okay.

    "Season of Rot" is a passable collection of novellas that are written by one author. It was about 200 Nook Tablet pages, but it does that weird page counting thing. So, I am guessing it is closer to 300 pages.

    I read the free sample and decided to buy it. It was worth paying a dollar to read, but no more than that. There were some spelling and grammar mistakes, but they were not too bothersome. It was the repetition of the storyline that was most annoying.

    Unfortunately, the basic plot was the same in every story. The exception, was that the character names changed (usually). Even the setting locations repeated.

    Although, there were a few slow mindless zombies in the background, the antagonist were usually fast, smart, and tricky zombies (or, in one case demon rats). Meanwhile, the protagonists are just lucky to be alive. Later, they join up with former military personnel on their way to a former military compound. These were the typical characters found in this collection.

    The plot summary for every story included here: The main characters hide (in a death trap), run (just fast enough), fight (a losing battle), then they all die (except one). Over and over again four more times.

    The first story was good. But, I am not sure if it was actually good, or if I had not picked up on the repetitive plot pattern yet. A few of the novellas had real potential, but it was never fully realized.

    I recommend this book if you have a lot of time, only a little bit of money, and do not mind reading the same book repeatedly. I may look at some other titles by this author, but I will not pay more than a dollar for it.

    Very well written stand-alone stories!

    I actually read this book backwards because the synopses of each story on the cover seemed less interesting for me as I read. I figured I'd read the least "thrilling-sounding" story first. Book. Cover. Judge. Guilty. I was so thoroughly proved wrong and believe I have found a new favorite story-teller in Eric Brown. Perfect detail, great movement, plausible characters (if you're willing to jump into a zombieland, of course), and chilling endings. Each story was fantastically horrifying and I can only hope that all my future comeuppances will be as pleasantly enlightening.
