I loved the ending, despite the claustrophobia and helplessness of the situation – it is both devastating and full of hope. Beautiful.
And then you get to Ryan Sayles’ brilliant 28 Days of Mutilated Zombie Whores Later, a story so sick and twisted it would have Daily Mail readers up in arms if they knew about it, demanding the government do something about this filth. Its protagonist, Nelson, catches zombies (and sometimes deer for the dinner table) in a pit he has dug on his isolated farm in deep America. He cuts off their arms with a saw, gags them with a ball, and then uses them to barter for services and food from other survivors – who have sex with them.
He then sees a deer, infected by the zombie disease. He fears it might be the “Typhoid Mary of Zombie-ism” and gives chase until he comes to a blue tent. Other survivors are around. And so the freakery inherent in the story’s DNA multiplies its crackpottery, bringing in kidnap, a homemade landmine, a pen-ful of rabid zombie women on the loose, hippie environmentalist terrorists, and a baby.
It’s heady stuff, with unlikable characters (except Henna, one of the environmentalists). It turns the zombie theme on its head, by making you sympathise more with the zombies than with the survivors, and leaves you with the feeling that humanity is dirty, amoral, and worthy of a zombie apocalypse to wipe it out.
My only issue with the whole thing is that it could do with a more thorough proofread. Typos litter the version I have, and it might just ruin your enjoyment.
However, I loved it.
Then enter Ryan Sayles, a stylistically different anchor in this thrill ride through the hellish events of their alternate 2012 Holiday Hell. Ryan pimps out his stories with as much swank as a two dollar stripper, and he'll even look you in the eye while doing it. He has a unique talent for transporting us into the darkest cracks of society and layering onto that his ideas of the fantastical. His stories are lasting, and often times viscid (in that they will linger long after you've turned the last page, and even after you've washed your hands several times...several times). While not one of my favorite stories by Sayles, there is no denying that I am always looking forward to his next story. I must say, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better "bang for your buck..." ehem. Just read his story and you'll see. Ryan Sayles is always worth the price of admission, and so here are his zombie whores.
Know these two names, because there is going to be a lot more mayhem in the coming months and I can't wait. Eye Contact. Mutilated Legs. Period.
"My Wife, Dawn...and the Dead" by Brian Panowich is a white-knuckler about the onset of the zombie apocalypse, as experienced by a group of friends at a Christmas party gone to hell. Full of gore, terror, tension, and a surprising twist, it is a wonderfully written tale that will stay with me for a long time.
"28 Days of Mutilated Zombie Whores Later" by Ryan Sayles takes a disturbing look at some of the folks who managed to survive the initial apocalypse. And an even more disturbing look at what it takes to survive hell on earth.
Both unique stories, from the imaginations of very talented writers, are perfectly matched in this volume for one shudder-inducing, fantastic read.
