an EPIC 2017 eBook Awards Finalist – Fiction Short Works
You don't have to be a medical student to know the dead don't walk. Anyone who's buried a pet in the backyard knows they don't even lurch.
The night-shift in the morgue was supposed to be a chance to study in peace. So Giovanni is stunned when his patient sits up and starts scolding. Now he's got to convince an unbelieving medical community to take action, so he can get back to learning about the dead – not the undead!
About the Author
Kathy Bryson is the award-winning author of a series of leprechaun romances as well as the adventures of a hapless med student. She’d like to say she’s climbed tall mountains, rappelled off cliffs, and saved small children, but actually she tends to curl up and read, is a life-long advocate of Ben & Jerry’s, and caters to 2 spoiled cats. She has degrees in advertising and literature and runs a college writing center, so she can claim to have saved a few term papers.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Poor Gio, a med student who is recruited to spend some time in the Morgue. Lots of events take place, on its way to the meat of the story. Are bodies really coming back to life? Did he really talk to someone who was pronounced dead? Not only is it creepy but I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone. Though, this is the a short story. The author really takes you on a ride. With a lot of What?! Moments. The story was written well and kept my attention through out. It didn't take me long to finish. Overall, I give this it Four Stars. I wish it was a little longer....Lissa
