Review: What Will Come After, a collection by Scott Edelman

What Will Come After, a collection by Scott Edelman

(4 out of 5 stars)

What Will Come After is a collection of nine zombie short stories. No, I don’t mean the evil talking heads that you see on tv shambling from interview to interview mindlessly regurgitating their party’s talking points. I mean the type of zombie that tries to rip your brains out; although, I can see where you might be confused.

As you might expect from zombie tales, What Will Come After is dark and disturbing. The stories are:

  • What Will Come After
  • Live People Don’t Understand
  • The Man He Had Been Before
  • Almost the Last Story by Almost the Last Man
  • Goobers
  • Tell Me Like You Done Before
  • A Plague on Both Your Houses
  • The Human Race
  • The Last Supper

Of those stories, “What Will Come After”, “A Plague on Both Your Houses” and “Almost the Last Story by Almost the Last Man” are must reads.

Have a little taste:

I will not be aware of the passage of time. I will live in a kind of eternal present, neither caring about the regrets of yesterday nor the worries of tomorrow. There will be only one day for me, and that will be whatever day I occupy. I will move continuously, having no need of sleep or even rest, which is something I will not have expected, since books and films which tried to imagine what I would become always told us that the undead would only rove during nighttime hours. but I will never lay myself down.

Tasty huh !

I give it 4 stars out of 5.

I received this complimentary ebook from PS Publishing for review purposes.
