Review by: Ian Thompson on Jan. 28, 2016 :
If you love dark, well-written stories, then Biggun is a real treat. From the first page, there’s a feeling of threat and dread, and this builds throughout the story right up to the climax. The pace of the writing is fast and no words are wasted; where the tale needs details to drive it, the descriptions are very vivid. In terms of character, the more the plot progressed, the more I felt for the lead character – her desperation to save her child is very real. There’s also terrific action, gruesome zombies and enough gore to satisfy any horror fan.

Non-stop action in this one!
I can't shake the gruesome image of a zombie invasion... a horde of hungry zombies advancing in a relentless fashion... pressing on... and on... and on... aaaaargh!
Wonderful writing. Sharp. Vivid. Descriptive.
An unexpected twist at the end.

I received this short story from librarything early reviewers in exchange for a review.

This was a very short but well written story. It is set entirely in a house surrounded by the dead, and tells the story of a new mother protecting her baby with no one to help except "biggun". I was impressed that in such a short story the author was able to pull me in and make me care for the characters. This is well worth the short amount of time it takes to read.

Biggun' may be a short story, but it is packed with captivating action and vivid emotion.
Cain delivers a tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat from page one.
The story unfolds immediately and you are absorbed within its pages. There aren't many authors that have the talent to pull you in as Cain so effortlessly does.
My heart was still racing even after I finished the final page.

Well done!

Exciting evocative short read! The author is great at painting a scene with words. I am personally never going to look at pizza cheese the same way again. I can't wait until the author writes another story or even better a full-length novel!

I won this story in a Librarything giveaway but that in no way impacted my review.

Review by: MasterReadersBooks on May 13, 2015 :
Cora and her baby Holly are the only ones in the village left, who are not affected by the deadly virus. All the other villagers have turned into zombies by now.
Cora is in her house, in the nursery in the first floor and the dead are trying to break through the kitchen door on the floor below. The zombies are most active during the night and she desperately tries to survive and to protect her baby until dawn.
Biggun is the gun her father gave her as a present for her 10th birthday and there's more to the gun than meets the eye.

Biggun is an excellent(gory!)zombie horror short story, with a surprise ending. The story is gripping throughout and has an unique twist to it.
Highly recommended for every Living Dead fan.

Review by: misspider on May 12, 2015 :
I truly admire the author's seemingly effortless and sharp style, not wasting a single word and thus creating a perfect short read that is frightening and sad all at once. At the end I was equal parts pissed at the cruel and tight outcome but also glad the author abandoned the idea of a comfortable happy ending for this impressing finale. Highly recommended!

Review by: SGS on May 08, 2015 :
Biggun: A Short Story (Zombie Horror) by L. X. Cain is a dark and enjoyably gory vignette about a new mother's struggle to save her infant daughter during a zombie invasion. Cain hits all the important points of the situation and genre with grace and Cain's descriptions of the zombies are delightfully disgusting. I look forward to reading more from the author.

Review by: Catherine Stine on April 17, 2015 :
What an intense read! A terrified young mom protects her baby at all costs, as hungry zombies lurk outside her farmhouse. Her father had taught her to shoot and aim well, but is a simple rifle really enough to stop the horde?
This short story is quite well-written. Recommended for those who like quick dark reads with unexpected twists!

Tremendous zombie tale by the talented Ms. Cain. Scary, suspenseful, it left me wanting more. I can only imagine the great novel Ms. Cain could weave in this horrific world. Her writing style is gorgeous, very evocative, painting dread with a poet's touch. Highly recommended.

If you're a Walking Dead fan, then you'll want to read this short story from LX Cain. I loved the character, Biggun. And while I was certain I knew where the plot was going, the fresh twist made story even better.
Biggun is captivating and terrifying. I'll be looking forward to reading more from this author.

Review by: Kate Larkindale on April 02, 2015 :
This is a short, snappy and completely engrossing read. Dread builds up as the story progresses and it never goes in the direction you're expecting it to. The descriptions are visceral and real; one even made my skin crawl!

If you're looking for something to read on a commute or while you're waiting for an appointment, look no further than this brilliant piece of short fiction.
