Without stretching too far into the realm of science fiction it’s truly hard to think of a way on how we can get zombies in space. With how rare humanity gets up there we can realistically not come up with a ton of ways to make it work.

What about though if we take an alternate look at history? That’s exactly what Tony Schaab has done here. Set in an alternate world where George Romero’s classic ‘Night of the Living Dead’ was reality the first moon landing went a little differently and that’s the tale we get to enjoy. My only complaint? We didn’t get to enjoy it that long as it came to a rather abrupt end due to originally being a short. The Eagle has Reanimated is an absolutely fun zombie themed tale that blends perfectly with the alternate Earth concept.

This is one that could probably be turned into a full length novel if it brought in a few more aspects of the time period but falling short of that it was still a fun read! (Really when the complaint is that a story wasn’t long enough that never earns the true meaning of complaint in my book.)

We start out with parts of the world having some kind of a plague but a lack of exactly what is happening is being held in by the media. Unlike today where everyone is able to be jacked in 24 hours a day this was still an age where people relied on television and newspapers to get their news and when it wasn’t being reported there wasn’t much you could do about it aside from hear rumors and conjecture.

There are hints of people working at NASA just leaving or disappearing. Rumors of problems across the country. The space launch though has to go on. We were in a race against Russia and with all of problems in our own country it was imperative that the United States be the first country to make it to the moon.

When I first read The Eagle has Reanimated I thought it was head and shoulders above most zombie fiction I was accustomed to. I'm glad to see others thought enough of the novelette to nominate it for a 2010 Nebula Award.

What makes the story so fun is the perfect blend of history sprinkled with enough undead fictional twists to make it seem believable. Romero fans will appreciate Schaab's style of zombies.

If you aren't the biggest fan of zombies don't make the mistake and pass up this story. I guarantee you'll enjoy the superior narrative and insightful wit of Tony Schaab.

Can't really think of anything to add to my review that the other 5 reviewers have not already added. I enjoyed this novella about the 1969 Moon Landing, with Neil, Buzz, and Michael. This time zombies are thrown into the mix. As my title suggests I loved the ending. Very sad, but how else could it be? If anything I would like to read a longer/expanded version of this story. Or a sequel, with a follow-up trip to the moon! A fun short read. I was a young teenager back in July 1969.......I must have missed the part about the zombies. Tony, how about that sequel?

Format: Paperback
As astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins prepare for the Apollo XI mission, a rash of random violence and an unknown disease strikes the Mid West. That worries Armstrong since his family's in Ohio. But he can't let that get to him; none of the crew can. They all have a mission to complete -- to be the first men to walk on the Moon -- and unless they hear otherwise, nothing's going to keep them from their goal. Once in space, the mission seems to be moving according to plan until some excess weight throws the landing module slightly off course. Too late do the astronauts realize just what exactly that extra weight is going to cost them.

I enjoyed how the novelette takes what everyone knows about the Apollo XI mission -- from the small facts about the astronauts and earlier missions to the speculation about whether it actually happened or was filmed on a soundstage -- and injects it with the living dead to speculate how that might alter events. What also works is that the story doesn't rely on much gore to get the scares across. The tension builds slowly, carefully focusing in on the three astronauts. After all, what could be more frightening than being trapped in a confined space with one of those creatures slowly shambling toward you and with no way to escape, nowhere to run?

"The Eagle Has Reanimated" is a great zombie-infested alternative version of history, one that I found difficult to put down once I started. I think other readers will, too.

Houston, we have a problem

Originally this phrase was used as a genuine report of a life-threatening fault. It's now used more often to humorously report any kind of problem. However, the use of this phrase in The Eagle Has Reanimated takes the phrase back to its origin.

The Eagle Has Reanimated by Tony Schaab has been nominated for the 2010 Nebula Awards (The Nebula Awards are annual awards presented by Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America to celebrate excellence in science fiction and fantasy writing) This novelette introduces us to an alternate history of NASA's Apollo XI moon-landing in July 1969. It invites us to wonder how would our world have been different had the living dead become an unwelcome part of this important mission? Maybe, just maybe, those rumors about the filming of the adventure have a basis of truth.

I can definitely understand why The Eagle Has Reanimated has been nominated for an award. This is a highly entertaining novelette. Tony Schaab captured the comradery of a team of astronauts preparing to make history with a great deal of believability. The slight change in the history of this famous expedition make for a fun and thrilling adventure. I, also, love the pop culture references of the time. I know this may be on the short side for a review, but as this is a novelette and I do not want to go into too many details and give away the story.
