Another great story by Scott. He is such a wonderful painter of the pictures in my head.

Review by: Timothy C. Ward on Oct. 07, 2011 :
Scott puts a twist on a familiar zombie concept: What would you do if you survived and family members turned? Scott does a fine job of showing the MC's angst of keeping these zombie loved ones "alive," and then poses the ultimate question the MC doesn't want to hear: Who's safety is more valuable, your zombie loved ones or innocent humans? Does their being women make it any harder? Yes it does. What does he do? All in all, story elements are solid and it is definitely an emotional ride with the right ending. My only problems were a few places of telling and over-description.

For example, "With ease born of his massive upper body, he threw...over his shoulder" - not the worst, but overall the description of the MC's size were a little too much. Also, "a huge 3D LCD dominated one wall" - not only is that the second time "dominate" was used to describe an appliance, but I don't know that "huge" is needed if the TV dominates the wall. It's just little stuff like this - not too much, but noticeable - that takes it down a star. All in all though, it's an emotional story with a powerful ending.

But there's also some chilling prose, like "As he jogged, he began to hum a lullaby, without realizing it." This guy is seriously messed up, and you know it right from the first paragraph.

I am not much into zombies... but I must say that this story is more than that and could be applied to other "sicknesses". And it is very well written.
