    MOST EXCELLENT ZOMBIE STORY!

    This story was great from the first paragraph. A lot of writers struggle with characterization and world building in a piece of fiction this short, but not Jonathan Maberry. Oh no, you know exactly who the main character is and exactly what kind of world he lives in.

    This is one of the greatest zombie short stories I have ever read. I truly, truly enjoyed it and highly recommend you read it!
