It's both a fantastic horror story and a great piece of Gothic fiction.

One thing I had trouble envisioning as I read the book was the farm.

I lover this story by Ty Schwamberger

Billy's father died and left him the farm
and he has to have help to get it back up
and running as it was in his fathers days,
and he has to have help doing so.
What a great story.

The Fields is a wonderfully crafted tale of ignorance, weakness, and evil--of the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. It's dark, atmospheric and brilliant. Ty makes us feel a part of the book's time period and of Billy's world, with his smooth prose and attention to detail. It's an original supernatural horror story, and alone it's great as is, but it's also a story with a message, a lesson. It has zombies, but I wouldnt think of it as a typical zombie novel, but a horror novel with the undead in it. And as everyone knows, a great tale is always about the humans, the most wicked of all monsters.

For all those who think every zombie story is the same mix of mayhem and gore, read this story! A wonderful change of pace in a genre that has taken off!

I found this review. I couldn't have said it better myself so I copied and pasted it:

The Fields by Ty Schwamberger
Review by Howard Allan

After I received an advanced copy of Ty Schwamberger's novella The Fields, I turned the first pages and immediately began reading kudos by notable authors and magazines such as Gary A. Braunbeck and Shroud Magazine. I never judge a book by its cover, but I do start judging books by their praise. And with an introduction by Jonathan Maberry (Rot and Ruin, Patient Zero), I was excited to start reading.
Jonathan Maberry starts off his introduction stating "The Fields is a morality tale. With Zombies." Maberry then explains to the reader that zombie tales are more than cannibalistic and mindless corpses. These tales, if written with feelings and responsibility, remind the reader zombies are people and they have life and their own stories. This is what Ty Schwamberger accomplishes with The Fields. He, as many authors have tried but failed, brings out the emotion of the characters but not just the living, but the dead also with much success.
The opening chapter sets The Fields pace; quick with that sense of emotion that is mentioned in Maberry's introduction. The reader is drawn in as Billy Fletcher, son of plantation owner in the Deep South, is racing through the darkness with zombie in tow. Schwamberger describes Billy's friendly relationship with the former slave now turned zombie Samuel. Yes, that could happen and yes, if you've studied American history, friendly relationship between slaves and owners did indeed exist. With not giving away too much of the plot, Billy survives the zombie encounter.

This was a pretty great story. Old time zombies, sort of!! I was really hoping that Billy would grow a pair, but alas, I've a feeling his days are numbered. Yep, I'd recommend this book.
