The streets around the Art Institute were silent and still, it was dark with a partially cloudy sky allowing almost full moon to shed a watery light onto the dust covered rubble. The electricity had gone out in the entire city, leaving it as black as the rest of the world during the night now. The dust was a thick carpet, approaching six inches deep in some spots, it muffled the occasional piece of falling concrete. There were no zombies in the streets anymore, just corpses of those unlucky enough to be hit in the head by falling debris or from the many pieces of shrapnel let loose from the exploding artillery shells.

Quietly, almost gently, a chunk of stone shifted on the ground and then rolled a few feet to settle into a dusty valley. The single movement was followed by another, then yet another still as the pieces of the Art Center shifted and writhed, pushed up from below. Springing from the dirt, like a plant growing frantically fast a pale, bloody hand thrust upward into the moonlight.

I found your zombie serious via kindle, got hooked from book one.... Was so thrilled
When i came to your website and found the rest of the sites for free. The fact that you posted these online for free speaks volumes on your character, and the reason you write books. It is truly appreciated that you have done so, thank you so much for the very intriguing series :)

Excellent stories. This is my second time of reading and I am still unable to stop turning pages.
A brilliant alternative take on a well covered subject, thank you for sharing your work.

Regards, John

I have to say I agree with the others in thanking you for posting these for free, you tell a good tale and I can't wait to see what happens with the rest! I stayed up just to read as much as I could and want more, to say the least.  Keep in writing, heck I'll be buying when I have to.

Hooked from the first. I live on fixed income, so to find this wonderful series online was incredible. Thank you for access to a unique and awesome genre. Keep them coming...

I've always have been the person that prefers to read a book rather than watch a movie. I found your first book on this series from iTunes. Then read on to see you have posted the rest of the books on your website. Thank you for that! I won't say I'm struggling financially but to know that you are willing to let others enjoy your ideas that come to life in my own movie set is priceless! Kudos to you! I have told everyone at work about your series. I'm a firm believer of "word of mouth" and this sir has been a fantastic ride & I can't wait to get on for the third time!
