What Will Come After, a collection by Scott Edelman
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
- 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.
