"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. -AvidReader

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.
