    Awesome book!

    This really is an all out action packed gore fest. The pace is breakneck and relentless once the game begins. I can't recommend this highly enough if you're into zombies (even though I wouldn't say the "infected" are actually zombies as such). The stories at the end are great, too. It's worth getting the book just for the "Receipts" story at the end. Awesome!

    Survival Horror By Paul Johnson I love to champion new authors.

    Survival Horror
    By Paul Johnson
    I love to champion new authors. So imagine you’re a new author and you’ve made it as far as getting your first novel published. The joy of getting that far is enough but things can easily take a terrible turn. What comes next decides whether or all that time you spent hunched over your computer through those long and lonely nights was worth is or not; reviews.
    So when I read a piece by a new author I like to concentrate on the positive, and even steer whatever was wrong in the story in the right direction. I don’t like to rip people to shreds unless I really have to.
    Paul Johnson’s debut novel is something I’d like to champion; even its theme is familiar. If you enjoyed the action and dystopia in The Hunger Games, you’ll probably love this. If you’re a fan of Stephen King’s The Running Man, then you’ll find yourself welcome in the arena of Survival Horror. But where King used condemned criminals and Collins has an enforced lottery; Johnson uses the interesting device of volunteers desperate for cash and a chance to buy their way out of poverty. Set in a society where the economic gap has widened, jobs are scarce and the population’s only joy is a mindlessly violent game show where the aim of the game is to survive and kill for bonus points. I even had a shudder at the set-up and preparation of the game show where men volunteer to be dropped into a sealed area to face off against deranged prisoners twisted on mind bending drugs.
    The story is short and satisfying as Johnson doesn’t waste much time in setting up the situation before he heads off at breakneck speed through splatters of gore and double cross’s whilst making it as easy as possible for the reader to enjoy themselves without feeling like your missing anything out. I even found myself chuckling at points at sly references to the future and a few decent one liners. We have an admirably hero, despicable villains, and a seemingly never ending army of infected psychos wanting to tear our hero apart, all set against a time limit which adds another welcome dynamic tension to proceedings.
    But Johnson is asking a much bigger question than will desperate men kill other men for money. This is where the world is heading, it is scarily eventual. We’re already in a world where more kids recognise the Churchill dog than his prime minister namesake, where as a society we’re happy for the next generation to be raised on a gruesome culture of children aspiring and subscribing the quick cash and soullessness of becoming a celebrity. We’re being numbed and dumbed down by trite TV so we don’t revolt against the constant oppression that life shovels upon us. Live violent death on TV is the next taboo to be broken by the media, it won’t be long. We have herds of wannabes willing to be served up as tube fodder for the chance of fame, fortune and notoriety. We have acres of rundown areas and council tenements waiting to be fence off as an arena. Prisoners; pah, I’m sure if the conservatives get in for a few more years then the death penalty could easily be reinstated so we can get paedophiles and murderers wired up on plant food and let them loose on the cast of The Only Way is Essex. The crazy thing is, in the world we live in today, a show like Survival Horror wouldn’t be amiss on the TV guide. The sick thing is, it’ll more than likely be a ratings hit.

    Loved the pace of this novel, it's relentless action once the game begins. Noticed some typos but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of this book. The short stories at the back are great, too.
