Mark Allan Gunnells breathes new life (if that's an appropriate thing to say when zombies are concerned) into the zombie genre with Fort. Set in the same timeline as his previous novella Asylum (which was great), Fort follows the fate of a group of college students trapped in a dorm building when the zombie outbreak occurs. What sets Fort apart from other zombie stories is the rich depth Gunnells brings to his characters, as well as the level of horror. I finished Fort several days ago and I'm still haunted by the ending. Highly recommended.

This companion to Asylum, also by Mark Allan Gunnels takes place weeks after the zombies rise. A group of college students are trapped in a dorm Romero style, and they are running out of supplies. The story begins with characters from the first book who also appear in flashbacks throughout. It then parallels Asylum and skips ahead in time several months to a world taken over by the epidemic which has not yet been contained. The zombies often take a backseat to the examination of a group of different people and their interactions together as they are forced to depend on one another to survive. I wish some more time had been spent on some of the character development and that the flashback scenes had been a bit longer. The ending left me wanting more. Perhaps a third novel in the series will someday appear. Overall, first rate writing paired with a fast paced thriller published in a very nice trade paperback edition as well as kindle from Sinister Grin Press.

Fort by Mark Allen Gunnells is a great story of what would really happen in a zombie apocalypse. There are no real heroes, no magically happy endings...I think he gets to the truth of how people would react in a survival situation. Rather than trying to be some adventure-filled soap opera like so many of the other popular zombie tales he focuses on the grittier side of things; starvation, insanity and hopelessness. This is more of a novella than a novel but Mark says what he means to say and rather than feeling short, it feels right. There are a few minor editorial problems but they don't detract from the enjoyment of reading this ghoulish tale.

3.4 stars. This was an unusual book. It read more like a play than a novella. The zombies are never explained, they just rise up Romero Classic style from their graves and shamble over to join the kegger going on at the college dorm across the street. And if you think about it, no good can come of having the flesh-eating undead wandering through your dorm party....

Unfortunately we do not get to see what happens initially after the dead rise; there is no account given of the night of "the party." Instead we skip forward in time and pick up the plot weeks to months later in what is essentially a prolonged survival scenario. A group of varied, but still fairly typical, college students cluster together as zombies bang on the doors.

The author gives the reader brief glimpses of the different characters going about their lives at college before the zombies rise. We get to see their personalities in both conditions, under the pressures of college, and under pressures of being at college and trapped in one hall of a dorm for months on end by walking corpses who desire nothing but to consume fresh human flesh. Overall though, the characters and their motivations seemed to be a bit simplistic, and much of their discussion sophomoric.

There is love, heroism, selfishness, and insanity - all on a collegiate level. The majority of the book is really about what is going on inside this dorm. It actually has little to do with zombies as anything other than a plot device, which could have as easily been some form of illness, natural disaster, nuclear war, or other dangerous calamity that would keep people locked inside long enough to start to crack.

The ending was abrupt.

Following the novella Asylum, author Mark Allan Gunnells is bringing back the dead (again) in the novella Fort, which takes place in the same universe as Asylum, includes some playful character crossover, and once more follows classic zombie conventions.

Fort focuses on a band of kids trapped in a dorm building during an outbreak, and getting just as hungry as the zombies. Flashbacks are injected to further develop characters and establish how they all ended up at the same place at the same time. Even so, the main focus is on the current predicament of the characters and how each one reacts to the situation, which leads to a zinger ending.

Just like Asylum, Fort is a fast read—you might even say a feeding frenzy for fans of the undead—and could easily be part of a longer collection of short novellas that take place during the same zombie outbreak. Will we ever find out how the epidemic began? Will we ever learn if it’s squelched? We’ll just have to see. Now that Gunnells has two living dead tales under his belt, perhaps he’s working on more.
