As a solid Redux fan, having any speculations of his work is futile. Everything he's written stands alone, only linked by his usual dark and brutal humor (sans Indian Summer). "Til Death is along the timeline of the z apocalypse taking place in the monumental "Mort", not exactly a companion piece, but if you've read Mort, the background has been laid out w/o rehashing it here. This is a different, microcosmic perspective of the undead experience. Redux brings humanity and soul to a typically "us vs. them" horror subject. If you fancy yourself a zombie "aficionado" or a twisted romantic, this one's for you. I avoid the story's details not due to the length of this piece, but they should be solely experienced by the reader, not conveyed by a simple review. "Til Death is another piece of evidence that creativity isn't dead, its alive and well thanks to Redux.
A more dramatic and sober story of a love caught in the end of the world apocalyptic zombie scenario. It will tug at your heartstrings and yet keep you flipping the pages for the action and what happens next recipe. I'm doing a Duncan Zombiethon and this seems to be the end of it with this book. A good short read for all you Zombie freaks needing to get your fix, and I suggest you check out the rest of Josephs's work. He doesn't disappoint and will give you your money's worth and then some. Give it a read!
'til Death is a tragedy. Rod Redux captures the oppressive feel of the Zombie Apocalypse and crafts a story of our heroine's desperate bid for survival. She is trapped in the cellar with her newly wed husband who is slowly turning into a Zombie. Will she Escape and find help? Will she survive?
Read it and see! This is and arresting story. It is as relentless as the Zombies wandering about, trying to get at them.
I didn't realize it was a short story and I'm not into zombies but this was a good story. By the time I realized it was about zombies I was interested enough to keep reading anyway. And I'm glad I did. It had a rather sudden and surprising ending though.
