Book Description

"Nobody thrills like Nicholson does. Nobody." -- J.A. Konrath, Afraid

Bloodthirsty mutants go on a rampage at a camp for troubled teens after an infection spreads. Adapted from Scott Nicholson’s original horror screenplay.


In a desperate attempt to save their land from tax foreclosure, Delphus Fraley and his daughter open a camp for at-risk kids, with the goal of building character through experience in the Appalachian Mountain outdoors.

But a strange infection contaminating the camp’s mess hall soon triggers a violent rampage. As the isolated camp turns into a bloodbath, camp counselor Jenny Usher first fights to save the children, and then finds she must fight to save herself.

Because this infection doesn’t just kill, it brings the dead back to life…
Scott Nicholson is the international bestselling author of more than 30 books, including The Home, After: The Shock, Liquid Fear, The red Church, and more.

J.T. Warren is the author of Hudson House, Rampage, Blood Mountain, and the series Jeremiah Rivers: Demon Hunter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure! April 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great read for anyone growing up with the Friday the 13th franchise! This book had everything a horror lover could want, with an engaging storyline, "real" characters, and outstanding atmosphere! Without going into spoiler territory, I will say that this book pulls out all the stops, and manages to successfully integrate many individual elements of outstanding movies/novels, and integrate them into one, complete book of non-stop action. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars MEAT CAMP is great! April 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
MEAT CAMP is a great, easy, fun read.

What I like about Scott Nicholson is his ability to bring characters to life. This short novel was no disappointment. The sheriff has issues with courage, the locals don't respect him, Delphus is a sloppy coot, his daughter is trying to hang on to their property by using it as a camp for troubled teens, and there is a bad guy trying to buy up the land for condos. Mix in some of Booger's tainted biscuits that turn one zombified and you have the makings of a cool story. Nicholson and Warren did not fail us.

The story is well edited and the prose is crisp with natural sounding dialogue. The plot moves fast, as before I knew it, I was already 3/4 done. Well done, guys, I really liked it!

True, it's a bit campy, but that's the appeal. It's not as gory as it could have been, but for this type of book, as Goldilocks said, it's just right.

One scene has a boy caught in a barbed-wire fence with a zombie buddy jerking his trousers off that I found particularly chilling:
"The strand cut off his air. He screamed with all he had, which wasn't much, and hoped he would pass out and die.
Just let it be quick, he thought.
It wasn't."

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Scott Nicholson knows I always say what I feel and I never give a good review for a book I don't like. Check some of the other reviews I have given Nicholson. Not always so good. This one is worth a read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mayhem in the Mountains April 24, 2013
By recluse
Format:Kindle Edition
I read a complimentary copy of this novel from the author for an honest review.

Authors Nicholson and Warren took every cliché from bad horror movies: Appalachia, local yokels, evil developers, dippy do-gooders, youth camps, troubled teens, monsters and bad cuisine, ran off to commit unspeakable acts of creativity upon them and wrote the flat out wildest, weirdest horror novel I've read in a long time! Take my word for it, this is the most fun you can have without smoking the wildlife!

Highest recommendation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Backwoods blast! April 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hillbillies, summer camp, troubled teens way up in the mountains...alone...Meat Camp. That spells trouble to me. And fun.

Like most of the posters, it didn't take me long to read this. I spent a few hours breezing through this great read.

They explained that the name Meat Camp came from Daniel Boone, whom the owners family was descended from. But did it really? Really?

Buy this one now!

3.0 out of 5 stars I should have known better... May 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
... than to enter the zombie stories world with a book called "Meat Camp", but at the time, it seemed I would enjoy it. I must say, until chapter sixteen, I struggled with the book. The characters were like drawn from a Class B horror movie. After that, the pace begins to quicken and it's a fast read. My dissapointment still remains. I rescue those moments in which we have glimpses at the boys's lives before the infection, but the attempts at humor were kind of lame for me... Anyway, I guess the book is okay if you just read it like you would watch an average zombie movie: not anyhting even slightly deeper besides the gore and the predictable relationships between characters...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really Meaty! July 6, 2013
By Susan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a fan of horror and zombie novels I found this book to be rather unsatisfying. It really needed to be fleshed out (no pun intended) and the characters were lacking in dimension. It was a fast and easy read but left me thinking of how it could have been much more interesting with some character development and more details in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars I smell Summer! April 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a sucker for summer horror flicks and this was a pretty sweet preseason fix. Do you like a creepy Crystal Lake-like setting? How about a group of juvenile misfits, a killer virus, & mutants running rampant through the woods?
If so, you'll love Meat Camp. It's chock-full of fun characters, snappy dialogue, humor, and death, of course. I read it in a day & highly recommend it to fellow horror fans. Kudos to Warren & Nicholson for a great collaboration!

1.0 out of 5 stars Meat camp was NOT my cup of tea. March 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Could be lot's of other folks' cup of tea. Just not mine. Don't buy this book unless you are prepared for way more blood, guts and gore than is in your average Zombie novel. Plus it was a bit too hokey for my tastes. This is only my humble opinion. Judge for yourselves.
