In Extremis

Rated 4.82/5 based on 22 reviews
This is a short story. Job would preach his sermons with a powerful voice that echoed throughout the church. All would stop and make their way to the sanctuary to hear and hope. Hope ... was all they had left. The undead horde outside would pound upon the barred church doors when Father Job addressed the congregation. It had made Claire wonder if it was too late for salvation.

What a wonderfully written zombie story. Very emotional and a lot happening in a short read.
Being new to this reviewing thing I still don't understand how someone can love a story and yet give a low star rating.
As for me, this is certainly a 5 star story, I couldn't give anything less.

This story makes for an interesting take on the zombie subgenre. It blends some classic elements with a novel twist on religiosity. If you're a fan of zombie fiction, try this one out.

A fun, well-written little story of a Church trying to hold out against the zombie apocalypse.

I have read, and enjoyed, everything written by this author. In my opinion, he is one of the best short story writers of our generation.

This was a fantastic horror/undead tale.
I really enjoyed it.
Didn't take long to read which was sad, would like to read a novel length.

This is my kind of story. Written with a lot of feeling and emotion. I like a good creepy story and this definitely made the grade.
A full novel version would be a bestseller!!

Read this and loved it. There's nothing better to give a tingle to the spine than a great 'undead' story. This is one of those stories.
I would have loved to read a longer version too.
