If you like zombie tales, then be sure to pick up this short collection. I was looking for fun, interesting free reads to try out with my new Kindle, and this was the first. I picked a winner! Great, fast read, and most importantly, only a couple of minor editing mistakes that in no way detracted from the story. I liked it enough that I'm paying $4.99 to download the first full-length book in the series, LZR-1143: INFECTION. Glad I found this one!

When I read that the fridge was dark because the power was out, and the character walks into the living room and turns on the TV, which powers on, it made me cringe. This type of thing happens more than once.
Note to author: Take your time on the next book. I will wait and I will buy it.

I just finished ",,,Perspectives" and could not put it down. Bryan James has an impressive ability to create characters that one can relate to. You immediately feel connected because he doesn't waste time on drawn out physical descriptions that attempt to paint the picture for you, rather he creates the emotional atmosphere and allows you to take it from there. These shorts were an equal balance of terror, confusion, shock, gore, and desperation. I was engulfed into every story wrapped individually into feelings that were all too tangible. "The Pilot," left me breathless, claustrophobic and proud at the end. "The Boy," will have me checking behind closed shower curtains for years to come. "The Inmate," well that left me smiling sardonically. "The Sniper," was my favorite! The fear and desperation were disturbingly real for me, and yet, at the end there was hope and I daresay peace, who'd have thunk it? Peace, in a Zombie story? Ironically enough I enjoy Zombie stories not always for the gore, destruction and monotony of the walking dead (although it is a bonus) but mostly I enjoy the rush of life that seizes me when I relate to the survivors. As they say "you never truly feel alive until faced with death." Bryan James has a marvelous way of creating the perfect opportunity for that without any risk of injury. Don't believe me! Read it for yourself!

So many times I read books and see interesting characters peek in for part of the story. Then I wonder, what was their story? I may really enjoy the main characters and feel entirely satisfied with their tale, but I'll still wish I had a bit more on those barely known others. Finally, an author who recognizes that desire in many readers and addresses it. In this short and enjoyable book, we get to see six characters that are only peripheral or only touched upon in the books. And they are really interesting stories with a whole lot of sad endings.

In "The Pilot" we get to meet, however fleetingly, the pilot of a jet packed with passengers when the zombie infection takes hold. They are going bingo on fuel and really, what choices do you have at that point. He makes his choice and I cringed along with him. In "The Boy" we meet Paul, the lucky survivor of a cruise from hades who then finds surprises at home. (I didn't find the contradiction in power that others did, it seemed he still had power. I think I may have simply got it after correction or it was read wrong.) I felt really bad for Paul and got a serious twinge at his situation. "The Fry Cook" follows Doreen, a woman unhappy in the job she needs to do to pay the bills and what happens at the restaurant that day is a whole lot more than a health code violation. In "The Inmate" I really got the shivers as we get to meet Hank, a fellow you definitely don't want to meet in a dark alley. We also learn exactly what NOT to do in the event we someday find ourselves in charge of whether or not to open the cells at the end of the world. Want a hint? Don't do it! "The Subway Passenger" was a delicious tale that was so un-nerving that I got tense just reading it.

Bryan James, LZR-1143: Perspectives (No publisher listed, no date listed)

Points off for lack of information (no publisher listed, no publication date listed).

Note that line above, because it drops this book from "above average" to "below average". Which is deserved because the author (one assumes this is self-published, otherwise he needs to drop by his publisher's office and sart swinging the proverbial baseball bat) couldn't be arsed to fill in even basic information to have his book come up in a number of relevant searches or that might sway someone who wasn't sure whether to shell out the few bucks, and that's annoying as hell. But the stories herein aren't half-bad. They're nothing great, mind you, the bigs probably aren't going to come busting down Bryan James' door the way they did with Dave Moody or the late Z. A. Recht when the zombie bug hit Bantam Doubleday Dell and its pals, but James' collection of character sketches set in his own LZR-1143-infected world keeps the focus where it should be, on the human factor, at all times. James has a knack for building solid, believable characters, and that is increasingly rare in this highly-oversaturated genre; while I'm only giving this two stars, I have every intention of eventually grabbing and reading the rest of the LZR-1143 books based on what I read here. **
