Review by: chucklesthescot on April 14, 2014 :
When a Viking Longboat and its corpse crew are found buried deep inside a coal mine countless miles from the sea, it is an incredible historical find. Miners and experts are anxious to get underground, the miners to get back to digging and the experts to see the boat...but in the dark the corpses are not dead.

This was a fun gory horror short story with Viking zombies and death in the dark. There were the usual obnoxious cast of miners and supervisors who were rude, sexist and annoying but who cares when most are going to be chomped! I'm never bothered much about character development in something short and this was an enjoyable story. Now as a woman I have seen my share of sexist gits and this book has them in abundance but I have to admit that I was laughing at the sole woman's furious outbursts at their comments and I was still laughing when the zombies started coming towards her while she was taking a toilet break. I mean, it would have to happen like that wouldn't it! There you are stuck underground with your bladder on critical and you find a dark corner to go to and the zombies are coming to eat you! It follows the usual plot of people wandering around in the dark and getting eaten but what do you expect in a zombie short story?

My confusion about this is the content of the ebook. On p16 the press are waiting to hear about what has been found, on p17 we are reading extracts from someone's diaries about zombies. Now is this the same book or a totally different short story? That is never explained which was a bit annoying. I'm assuming that it is a different story or at least a different story relating to the same outbreak but I'd like to know for sure.

Not the greatest horror story ever told but it was a nice short zombie filled read.

A very gory zombie re-telling. Zombies have been done to death recently, but it was interesting to see this author's take on the subject.

This is a superb little story that certainly stands out from the usual Zombie fare. It tells of the discovery of a Viking Longboat within a UK coal mine whose passengers are not quite as dead as you’d expect. Brilliantly and vividly written with excellent descriptions and surprising depth to the characters (well the ones that are living anyway) given the length of the story. I particularly enjoyed that additional journal extracts at the end that hint at the outcome of the discovery. A definite must read for all Zombie fans, can’t wait to read more by this author

The writing is just as fresh as the premise. Zombie Vikings run amok deep in the dark tunnels of a working coal mine. The story moves at such a pace from the start you can almost hear the wheel-spin.

Bloody. Awesome.

Viking undead in a UK coalmine? You gotta love this one for the originality alone. Thankfully it's a good story to boot.

Review by: Douglas Ryan on Oct. 30, 2010 :
Excellent story. I was drawn to because of the unusual premise; Zombie vikings in a coalman? However, the story has top-notch descriptions and characters that leap from the page.

If I have time to read that means I've have time to write and nothing usually gets in the way of that. But I've started this book now and I have to finish. I love the strong style and the way the characters leap out of the writing.
Can't wait.
