  • Nightmare Beach on Feb. 09, 2010
    (no rating)
    good short michael. i was suprised to see you are from sw minnesota. i myself am from sw minnesota. small world.
  • After Life on Feb. 22, 2010

    great story jaron. i love all things zombie and this was a good story. what makes it even better is that im born and raised minnesotan. this is the first story ive come across set in minnesota. its kinda neat to know the areas of your story. i also like the shout out to 89.3. i listen to the current every day at work.
  • Dying to Live: Life Sentence (Book 2) on April 21, 2010

    I enjoyed this story very much. I usually dont like zombie stories that stray from the traditional zombies but this story is very well written. i liked the characters and the community. would love to read a story on what happened to will and his gang.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments on Aug. 06, 2010
    (no rating)
    this is a good series. cant wait for the next one. and i loved the they might be giants song "birdhouse in your soul" reference. gave me a good chuckle and was completley unexpected.
  • The Hunted of 2060, a Shifter Dystopian (Shifter Evolutions Book #5) on Aug. 25, 2010

    good story. but the militia must be pretty dumb if they plastered photos of april on TV but didnt check her boyfriends apartment for 2 1/2 days after that. im pretty sure they would have made that connection from people calling in from the university.
  • The Zombie Chronicles 2: Discovery on Sep. 09, 2010

    this was your best story yet. i liked it a lot. im usually not a fan of thinking/smart zombies but i like the way you use them in your story. i guess the only part i didnt like was that red was missing for most of the ending but it sounds like you will be doing a short story on that so i will forgive that. keep up the good work.
  • The Great Fall: Infection on Oct. 26, 2010

    i liked it. looking forward to what happens next.
  • The Free, Online, Concise Guide to No Limit Holdem Poker on Nov. 30, 2010

    im just a begginer and dont know much about the game. this helped a lot with the terms, position, betting and a good general strategy for beginners. i also learned more about outs and odds. i never really considered this stuff when playing before. i always just guessed as to what i was doing and probably why i rarely win.
  • Advanced Holdem for Home Games on Dec. 03, 2010

    this was very helpful. i feel much better about my game now. before i was the clueless fish. playing hands i thought were good out of position and making stupid calls and bluffs. i know im not a pro our anything now but i feel like i have a much better understanding of the game. so far ive only played online. next week might start playing in a monday night cash game were ive heard there are several "loose aggressive" players. thanks
  • Discipline on Dec. 14, 2010

    I liked it and would like to read more. It reminded me of one of the dune books when a young boy is cast out of the siech and is the first to learn to ride the sand worms. I think it would make for a good novel.
  • Shatter (The Children of Man, #1) on Dec. 29, 2010

    Thought it was a good read especially for being free. I will definatley read the next book.
  • LZR-1143: Infection (A Zombie Novel) on Jan. 10, 2011

    I've read alot of zombie fiction and thought this was a decent read. I'm guessing from the ending there will be a sequel and I would probably check it out.
  • Astra: Synchronicity on Jan. 20, 2011

    Sorry for my previous review and giving away any of the story line. I am an idiot. Anyways, I enjoyed the story and the entire idea behind this sci-fi world. I was dissapointed in the ending but will definatley read the next book.
  • A Land of Ash on Jan. 31, 2011

    I'm a pretty big fan of anything post-apocalyptic. Usually zombies. But this scenario is equally as frightening. I liked the collection. Well done.
  • No Flesh Shall Be Spared on Feb. 04, 2011

    I've only just started this book but had to say I'm really enjoying it so far. I read lots of Zompac and right now my favortie show on TV is Spartacus on Starz. So I figured that alone would make this book worth the purchase. On top of that I enjoy the writing style as well. I'll check back in when I finish up.
  • False Colored Eyes: A Short Story on Feb. 25, 2011

    Cool short story. Left me wanting to know more about what happens next.
  • Drowning on May 19, 2011

  • There Honour Lies on May 25, 2011

    Great short. I enjoyed it.
  • S T O L E N - Suspense Short Story on May 25, 2011

    Not bad but I guessed the ending. I'm pretty smart though.
  • Survival on June 03, 2011

    Daniel, this was a great short story. Well done. I love apocalyptic fiction and this is one of the better short stories in the genre that I have read.
  • Completing the Cycle on June 06, 2011

    Nice little short story. I enjoyed it.
  • The Line That Deserted Him on June 06, 2011

    (no rating)
    Excellent shorty. Send me an application to the all male spa when they figure out how the make the cream that doesn't kill you in five months.
  • The Necessity of Man -Science Fiction Mystery Short Story on June 10, 2011

    Forgot to rate.
  • Underneath on June 10, 2011

    Very nice short story. Kept me interested the entire time.
  • Gladitorium Immortuos on June 30, 2011

    Nice little short. I would have liked the story to continue to see how bad the outbreak might get.
  • City of Light on July 01, 2011

    This was great. Hopefully you continue this story or give us some more of the back story.
  • Traffic Control on July 15, 2011

    Great story. I usually don't read this kind of story but I got hooked on this one. Well done.
  • Harmonics: Rise of the Magician on Aug. 03, 2011

    It was an ok read. I'd check out a follow up book to find out whats going on here. Lots of un-answered questions.
  • Backcountry Trail Pics on Aug. 05, 2011

    Amazing pictures. I was in Yellowstone when I was younger but forgot how beautiful it is. I didn't grow up to be much of an outdoorsman. Not much for scenery here on the plains in Minnesota. When I'm older and not stuck in the office I might have to travel more. Thanks for sharing.
  • Tendon from Bone - Part Two on Aug. 16, 2011

    I'm fairly lost about whats going on in these first two parts of the story. But I still dig it. Looking forward to reading next part of the story and trying to piece together what is going on.
  • The Dragon of Skar on Aug. 18, 2011

    Good story. I think this would make for a pretty good sequel movie.
  • Sundered Lineage on Aug. 23, 2011

    Very cool short. I hope there is a follow up to this. I've read several of your shorts and this was one of my favorites.
  • The Bones of St. Isis on Aug. 23, 2011

    This story had my interest from begining to end. Really enjoyed it.
  • Apeiron, Aziz on Aug. 25, 2011

    Another excellent short James. So far you are 2 for 2 on stories that I have read. I look forward to reading the rest of your stories.
  • The Seams Between The Stars on Sep. 01, 2011

    Flippin Awesome! Loved it.
  • Miracle, Texas on Sep. 02, 2011

    Great story and main character.
  • Vector (The Extraterrestrial Anthology, Volume I: Temblar) on Sep. 02, 2011

    Great story Mark. You combined 2 of my favorite genres into an excellent short.
  • Lux 1.2 Call to Arms on Sep. 09, 2011

    The 2nd part of this story was as good as the first. Some pretty good cliffhangers here and looking forward to the next installment.
  • The Birth of the Peacekeepers. on Sep. 14, 2011

    I have to agree with the review about the cheesiness being over the top. I just kept picturing Steven Segal breaking peoples bones like it was no big deal. And some of the coversations were just as bad. Couldn't make it past the first couple chapters.
  • The Zombie Chronicles 3: Ascension on Sep. 30, 2011

    Another good chapter to the story. It kept me intrigued the entire time. I will tune in for the next chapter.
  • Circus of the Dead on Oct. 18, 2011

    Very good short story. It reminded when the fair would come to town every summer and how excited I would get except there were'nt zombies then.
  • Don Coyote de la Merika on Nov. 14, 2011

    Excellent start to this story. I will be purchasing the rest.
  • Zombies! Episode 1: Shawn of the Dead on Nov. 17, 2011

    Excellent start. I will be checking out volume 2.
  • Rise of the Fungal Dead: Hello Friend on Dec. 02, 2011

    Liked it. Cool story.
  • A Matter of Survival (The Extraterrestrial Anthology, Volume I: Temblar) on Dec. 13, 2011

    Fantastic story and great twist at the end.
  • Gold Guns Girls (Cities of the Dead) on Dec. 14, 2011

    This is one of the better zombie shorts I've ever read. I felt like I knew the main character and could easily picture the surrounding environment. Will be reading the rest of your stories.
  • Waiting for the Great Leap Forward (Cities of the Dead) on Dec. 14, 2011

    Another excellent addition.
  • The Last Man In The War on Dec. 16, 2011

    Excellent. Thanks for sharing.
  • Zombies! on Dec. 16, 2011

    Cool read.
  • What are Little Zombies Made of? (Cities of the Dead) on Dec. 21, 2011

    Love your writing. Keep it up. You have some of the best zombie shorts I've ever read and I've read alot of them.
  • All Hell Breaks Loose (Cities of the Dead) on Dec. 21, 2011

    Once again well done.
  • Vanessa Alone on Dec. 23, 2011

    I read this short awhile back and forgot to review. And I didn't realize it was part of a larger story which I have now purchased. If you enjoy post zombie apocalypse stories I would recommend this one.
  • Fear Of The Dead on Dec. 30, 2011

    I loved it. Hoping there is a sequel.
  • The War on Horror (Cities of the Dead) on Jan. 20, 2012

    Once again an excellent addition to the story. But I don't think you would need a 9 iron to hit a 100 yard shot. Unless the wind was in your face and you were playing a little knockdown shot. I'd say its probably a 56 degree wedge for that shot.
  • King of Lions on Jan. 23, 2012

    Well done. Enjoyable short story.
  • To Kill Two Birds on Feb. 01, 2012

    nice. liked ending.
  • Underneath on Feb. 01, 2012

    Nice.

  • Strayed on April 24, 2012

    Excellent short. Enjoyed very much.
  • Dead Sexy on May 01, 2012

    I enjoyed this. There are probably millions of people like this main character in hollywood right now.
  • At Least There's No Traffic on May 04, 2012

    Well done. Tough to come up with a good story for that photo but you did a great job.
  • Dead World on May 04, 2012

    Good story. If you enjoy zompac i would recommend this one.

    Sweet little quick hitter. I liked the syle and pace of the story.

    Well done. Two great characters and an awesome story. In some regards it reminded me of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I will be checking out your website!
  • Aftermath: Wanderer on June 13, 2012

    Loved it. Awesome main character and enjoyed her point of view on her partner asshole and how that changed from the begging to the end.
  • Aftermath: Found on June 13, 2012

    Hope there is some more of this series.
  • Urknod Army: The Soldier's Manual on June 13, 2012

    Haha. Where do I sign up?
  • Angel of Death: A Short Story (Thomas Lord of Death) on July 11, 2012

    I've never read anything quite like this. I enjoyed it very much. Well done. I will be checking out your other stories. I also live in Minnesota, not sure how you made that transition. You probably get a lot of writing done between November and April.
  • Seasons of the Heart - Summer on July 16, 2012

    Neat little story. I think any single person who hates their job can relate to this main character.
  • Dead Girls Don't Dance on July 27, 2012

    Nice glimpse into the mind of a crazy person. Great short story.
  • Requiem For Golgotha on July 30, 2012

    Another good story troy. I enjoy your stories and will be purchasing your longer stories next.

    good read. makes you wonder who the real monster in the story is?

    Great Story. I enjoyed the suspense and characters. I'm usually more of a zombie guy but I may have to start looking into more werewolve fiction.
  • WhiteSpace: Episode 1 on Aug. 23, 2012

    Well I'm hooked and can't wait to read more. Excellent writing. Very interesting characters and the suspense of the story hooks you early and won't let you stop reading. Part 2 please.
  • The Room: A Tale of Murder in the Social Networking Age on Sep. 20, 2012

    very well done. loved the twist and didn't see it coming at all.
  • Headlines of the Dead 4: Death in Latoa County on Nov. 07, 2012

    Its getting interesting.
  • Survivor's Tale: Blind Girl vs. Zombies on Nov. 08, 2012

    Very cool. Liked this character and how she developed in such a short story.
  • Headlines of the Dead 7: Ghosts of Latoa County on Nov. 09, 2012

    Are there zombies in this zombie story? And I'm pretty sure if peoples children were missing they wouldn't be holding a vigil. There would be violence. Although it is Cali so citizens probably don't have any guns.
  • Headlines of the Dead 12: News Girl Returns to Chaos on Nov. 21, 2012

    Now its getting good!
  • Water Torture (From the Desk of Col. Garrett Ross) on Jan. 02, 2013

    enjoyed this very much. will be reading next installment.
  • Three Simple Rules (From the Desk of Col. Garrett Ross) on Jan. 17, 2013

    I agree with above review. You could bundle these and charge something. Or charge a small amount per short story. I am hooked on this series.
  • Pyramid on Feb. 13, 2013

    I really enjoyed this story. I couldn't stop reading. Well done sir.
  • Significance - a Science Fiction Short Story on March 15, 2013

    Great story. I especially enjoyed the ending.
  • Golf Tales Volume I on April 05, 2013

    Love these stories. As an avid golfer and lifelong Minnesota resident I especially like that several of the stories take place in Minnesota. There is nothing quite like golf and the time spent playing with good friends. I didn't start playing much until after college, wish I would have caught the golf bug at a younger age.
  • Broken (a Tale of Breaking Benjamin) on May 03, 2013

    Another amazing addition to this series. Loved it.
  • Lifesphere INC: Acquisition on May 23, 2013

    I got completley wrapped up in this story. Can't wait for the 2nd installment.

    Not the best in the series but still very good.
  • Under the Knife (From the Desk of Col. Garrett Ross) on July 19, 2013

    I forgot to rate this one earlier but it is one of my favorites of the series. Love the build up to the revenge. And its cool when these characters tie in with another story.
  • The Chronicles of Riddick: Ghosts of Furya on Aug. 21, 2013

    Very cool take on the origins of Riddick. I would enjoy more of the story.
  • The Z Contingency - Part 1 on Nov. 07, 2013

    Impressed with these first 11 chapters. You have captured my interest. I will be purchasing on Amazon when I get the chance.
