More About the Author

I live in Maryland with my wonderful wife and three cats. I love gaming, computer technology, movies, and of course, reading and writing. I love science fiction and especially horror. Ghosts, vampires, werewolves, zombies, anything supernatural, all beautiful subjects.

I've been writing since I was twelve years old. There's just something about creating a story that I like. It's always fun to try to come up with something that hasn't been done, or is unique in some way. It's fun to build a character, give him a personality and background.

Customer Reviews

I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I decided to write my first review ever! I love zombie books and am always looking for a little differentiation amongst them. This book really gave me that. The books jumps right into the action, provides plenty of surprises, and had just enough violence or gore. The main character was unique and different from any other that I have experienced in a post-apocalyptic zombie book. There was even some romance in it, which I also love. It was a page-turner from the beginning and was disappointed to see it come to an end. I was very happy with this book and would highly recommend it to others for their collections!

Dead Living, by Glenn Bullion, is not your ordinary Zombie Apocalypse. This is a book with (lots of bloody) heart.

Opening with your expected zombie-induced chaos, Bullion holds nothing back in showing the initial confusion and devastation expected by the genre. The thing that really sets this book apart, is that he quickly moves past the gore and destruction into a story with real depth and human emotions. Don't be lulled into complacency, though, because there is still plenty of blood, guts and spilled brains to keep the story moving quickly.

Aaron is a main character who seems almost too good for the new world reality, but Bullion makes sure that you see even the best of us has a breaking point. And that breaking point is a doozy.

Sam, the other main character in this book, is truly a product of her environment. Her skepticism and instinct for self-preservation are the perfect foil to Aaron's ease and self-confidence. The other, more minor characters are also very well-handled and well-rounded. Their believability is what really makes this story a good read.

On the 1-5 star rating system, I give Dead Living an enthusiastic 5 stars. If you are in the market for a good read with a bit of gore on the side, this is the book for you.

The book begins with the first zombies to rise and is very action packed. It then goes about 14 years after the zombies and we find ourselves with the 5 survivors. It's a good book not as action packed as other zombie books, it's more character driven and I really enjoyed it. I would have liked to have seen more action in this book and then I would have rated it a 5 star book.

In Glenn Bullion's Dead Living, it's been 23 years since the world as we know it ended. The zombie apocalypse came quickly and left very few survivors behind. Those who remained either gathered in small communities, fell prey to slavers or in the unusual case of Aaron, walked freely among the dead. Aaron was content to live a solitary life until he met Samantha, a somewhat reluctant part of a nearby community of survivors. You know how it goes - boy meets girl meets teeming hordes of walking corpses.

I'm not familiar with Bullion's other books, though I gather from some of the reviews here he has a dedicated fan base. I do read a lot of zombie novels though, and I got a real kick out of this one, despite some flaws.

Zombie 411 - We get some interesting variations on the Romero style zombies here. The bite to reanimation time is extremely short, and while most of the zombies are "shamblers," Bullion introduces "thinkers" - zombies who can learn to some degree and lead others to prey. This made for a much more interesting (and dangerous) situation.

The good - Dead Living is a pretty standard zombie tale in a lot of ways, but it has a few things going for it that set it apart. First, in a sea of first person, journal style zombie novels, it's refreshing to see a story that breaks from that. There's also the wrinkle of how someone the zombies are almost blind to can survive and what kind of role he can/should have. It helps that Aaron (and to some extent Samantha) are compelling characters. Not overly developed, but easy to relate to. The characters' charm and their almost quaint romance are endearing, and make it easier to overlook some of the book's flaws.

Wow! After reading about 15 Kindle zombie books (so far), this stands out as my favorite! The story was really well written, the characters richly developed, and the pace was fast. The thing that I noticed about most (but not all) of the books I'd read previously was that the writing was terse, the characters shallow, and a had lot of violence which didn't demonstrate the intelligence of the characters or their skills. Not so in this book... you even feel like you've gotten to know some of them. I liked that the hero was able to think his way out of dangerous situations (not being subject to infection really helps!) and really help some people that needed it. I'm going to look for other books by Mr. Bullion.

I've had my Kindle for only a short time, and realized early on I couldn't keep spending $10 a book at the rate I read. And what a surprise this one was for only $2.99!

Great zombie book but has a twist. The main character was born right when his mother was turning into a zombie. Apparently this passed on a few traits to him and maybe a couple of others. Great twist on the genre and interesting to see where this will lead and what will develop as this writer continues. I hope there is a series after this debut.
