More About the Author

Bryan lives happily with his beautiful wife, his two amazing sons, his ornery Dachshund and his go-lucky Vizsla--the latter having served as continuing inspiration for his canine character in the LZR-1143 series. He enjoys many hobbies, one of which is compulsively talking about himself in the third person. Just like this.

When I read that the fridge was dark because the power was out, and the character walks into the living room and turns on the TV, which powers on, it made me cringe. This type of thing happens more than once.
Note to author: Take your time on the next book. I will wait and I will buy it.

If you like zombie tales, then be sure to pick up this short collection. I was looking for fun, interesting free reads to try out with my new Kindle, and this was the first. I picked a winner! Great, fast read, and most importantly, only a couple of minor editing mistakes that in no way detracted from the story. I liked it enough that I'm paying $4.99 to download the first full-length book in the series, LZR-1143: INFECTION. Glad I found this one!

I just finished ",,,Perspectives" and could not put it down. Bryan James has an impressive ability to create characters that one can relate to. You immediately feel connected because he doesn't waste time on drawn out physical descriptions that attempt to paint the picture for you, rather he creates the emotional atmosphere and allows you to take it from there. These shorts were an equal balance of terror, confusion, shock, gore, and desperation. I was engulfed into every story wrapped individually into feelings that were all too tangible. "The Pilot," left me breathless, claustrophobic and proud at the end. "The Boy," will have me checking behind closed shower curtains for years to come. "The Inmate," well that left me smiling sardonically. "The Sniper," was my favorite! The fear and desperation were disturbingly real for me, and yet, at the end there was hope and I daresay peace, who'd have thunk it? Peace, in a Zombie story? Ironically enough I enjoy Zombie stories not always for the gore, destruction and monotony of the walking dead (although it is a bonus) but mostly I enjoy the rush of life that seizes me when I relate to the survivors. As they say "you never truly feel alive until faced with death." Bryan James has a marvelous way of creating the perfect opportunity for that without any risk of injury. Don't believe me! Read it for yourself!

If you asked me to review this book independently knowing nothing about it other than reading a story I would probably give this a 1 star rating and tell you it never tied together and had no right being published. But this is not a story, this is a written dossier on former humans taken by a zombie apocalypse and never meant to be taken as a story of sorts.

As we read LSR:1143 Infection or Evolution we as readers encounter the undead and they are nothing more than bullet fodder and aggressors to harm the living. We think nothing of it when they die, we may even breathe a sigh of relief. Perspectives is written to give the undead, or a few undead a meaning and character. A vision that they went fighting... or crying on the floor like Roy.

In a more advanced Kindle world sections of this book would be a great hyperlink-footnote when the said zombie is referenced and a history to his or her becoming is available. Unfortunately for right now you can just relive some lives in between books 2 and 3. The Walking Dead did a similar gimmick after season one of the show with webisodes featuring Hannah the girl Rick Grimes returns to shoot at the conclusion of the first episode.

The stories are not all that interesting or grand with the exception of the final chapter "the Sniper." Though in "the Fry Cook" Bryan James had a nice little excerpt on the feeling of becoming a zombie as Doreen is bitten.

If you are expecting a fully developed story going into this book you are going to find yourself closing your Kindle and hitting [delete]. If you are reading this as a supplement to Infection you will enjoy and respect the characters just a bit more.

I would give this a 3 1/2 if the system allowed for half points.

This is a collection of short stories about a zombie outbreak that all, to my knowledge, take place around DC. I found that some of the stories are more gripping than the others; I particularly liked the account of a man stuck on the subway.

There are a few things that bothered me, like a television being turned on when the power is supposed to be out and a couple of shifts to the past that don't seem to fit, but all in all, it was an interesting take on the zombie apocalypse.

The stories were decent, but the delivery was so-so. I would have liked to have given this 3 1/2 stars. It's depressing, but I would still recommend this to other fans of zombie lit.

So many times I read books and see interesting characters peek in for part of the story. Then I wonder, what was their story? I may really enjoy the main characters and feel entirely satisfied with their tale, but I'll still wish I had a bit more on those barely known others. Finally, an author who recognizes that desire in many readers and addresses it. In this short and enjoyable book, we get to see six characters that are only peripheral or only touched upon in the books. And they are really interesting stories with a whole lot of sad endings.

In "The Pilot" we get to meet, however fleetingly, the pilot of a jet packed with passengers when the zombie infection takes hold. They are going bingo on fuel and really, what choices do you have at that point. He makes his choice and I cringed along with him. In "The Boy" we meet Paul, the lucky survivor of a cruise from hades who then finds surprises at home. (I didn't find the contradiction in power that others did, it seemed he still had power. I think I may have simply got it after correction or it was read wrong.) I felt really bad for Paul and got a serious twinge at his situation. "The Fry Cook" follows Doreen, a woman unhappy in the job she needs to do to pay the bills and what happens at the restaurant that day is a whole lot more than a health code violation. In "The Inmate" I really got the shivers as we get to meet Hank, a fellow you definitely don't want to meet in a dark alley. We also learn exactly what NOT to do in the event we someday find ourselves in charge of whether or not to open the cells at the end of the world. Want a hint? Don't do it! "The Subway Passenger" was a delicious tale that was so un-nerving that I got tense just reading it.
