This short story duo (with a micro story thrown in at the end as a bonus) was a treat to read. The first, "Two Things", has rather the feel of a "Shawn of the Dead" mixed into "Red Dwarf". I realize that's comparing a short story with a movie and a comic sit-com, but I can't think of anything else to relate it to. t's a little campy and manages to weave some suspense into the storyline.
The second, "Escape from Ape City", evokes a light-touch romanticism, a bit of everyman as hero, and an admirable "let's all take care of each other" spirit that I'm a total sucker for. It sketches out a brief narrative involving ...(ok, don't laugh)... gangs of zombied apes the size of King Kong. (Ok, fine: laugh. Or at least smile.) But it works. At least it did for me. There's no real horror or gore, and it was over before my tendency to sympathize with every being (including zombie apes) could erupt to prevent me from enjoying it.
The entire set was only 24 pages in my ereader and gave me a nice reading intermission when I had brief snatches of time to while away.
