The zombie apocalypse has happened. Liz just wants to get home to be with her family, but when her car runs low on fuel she is tempted to take a shortcut through unfamiliar, and potentially dangerous, territory. More
A disease has overtaken the world. One by one the major nations have fallen, as its citizens succumb to an evil virus that turns them into mindless, flesh-eating monsters, dubbed 'zombies' by the media.
In Australia, there isn't a family that isn't touched by the disease in some way. Some people develop the symptoms for themselves, while others lose family members as prey to the foul beasts. Others are merely inconvenienced by government programs intending to protect them.
Here, their stories are told.

Liz decides to visit her mom in the neighboring town, and she drives over to see her, despite the recent disease that has broken out in several towns in Australia. However, Liz runs low on gas, and the gas station that she pulls into looks mysteriously deserted. So, Liz decides to head into the one town that she knows was quarantined months ago. After all, everyone should be long gone by now, right?
Awesome short story, fast-paced and great action, with zombies that are more monstrous than undead shamblers. A nice take on an old classic.

A fantastically paced story that had me reading faster and faster as the drama built.
The story is constructed well and flows easily.
Overall, a great zombie story which is hopefully followed up with more.
