This collection of short stories, all written by Lyle Perez-Tinics have been pulled together as a volume of zombie goodness. As with many e-books there are some typos but these do not detract from the enjoyment.
The volume starts with ‘Vigor After Death’, an interesting take on the zombie genre. And in fact, all of the stories in this volume have something new to offer the genre. I particularly like the introductions Perez offers about this history of the story. In ‘Broadcast of the Dead’ we find out more about the origins of the zombie disease in Perez’s world, in this case Vigor, a Frankenstein-esque serum.
If you like your zombies, this book is well worth picking up. For me, the high light was ‘The Gingerbreads’ a Christmas zombie tale. Christmas and zombies. It has to be done!
If you like the look of this volume pick it up at Death’s Too Short.
