Publisher's Summary

I'm an odd dude. But I write some decent stuff, and here's my way of sharing my odd dude thoughts.
I'm the author of three "major" series: Adrian's Undead Diary, Elmoryn's The Kinless Trilogy, and the Reemergence Novels, the first of which is Tesser: A Dragon Among Us.
To help folks get a taste of my writing, I've put At Least He's Not On Fire together. Inside this wonderful electronic tome of my words, you'll find a healthy sized sampler of each of my major works, as well as several short stories that are mixed in for your entertainment. "All in", "Hell Hole", and The Vampire of Menlo Park" are all great fun, and I hope you enjoy them.
Dark Recollections: Book One of Adrian's Undead Diary
Beheading a zombie isn't easy in a world where you're more afraid of the living than the dead.
Adrian Ring's simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors. He saves his cat Otis, but shoots his mom. Pretty successful, all things considered.
Dark Recollections is the first part of Adrian's own story of how he survived after "That Day." Told through his eyes as he talks to his laptop, affectionately named "Mr. Journal," and through short stories that entwine with his tales that bring forth dark visions of a world being eaten alive by an unimaginable evil. Adrian's Undead Diary is an eight part epic about a solitary, guilt stricken man that didn't think he deserved to live, but realizes very soon that he survived, and suffered for a reason.

Here is your chance to be teased

If you have yet to experience the writing of Chris Philbrook and the narration of James Foster. Here is your chance to be teased by both of them. This is a “teaser” to get you in the mood for more without having to commit to one entire story that you may or may not like.

Here we have several short stories, that are pretty entertaining. Along with excerpts from Adrian’s Undead Diary and Tesser: A Dragon Among Us. I so hope that Tesser goes audio is sounds like an amazing story.

This is something that is incredibly difficult to review in a conventional way. I am, if you didn’t know, a huge fan of Philbrook and Foster. I think that everyone should at least give them a chance to whisk you way to another time and place. At Least He’s Not on Fire is excellent for that reason. Get your feet wet to their style. An introduction to the apocalypse and imagined by Philbrook.

I really liked the short story All In. About a guy playing poker with the devil. Very entertaining and didn’t end like I thought it would.

Foster really got a chance to show his vocal range with this project. Going from sounding like the every man, as in Adrian. To an immortal mythical creature, I think he actually growls. So much fun to listen to this.

This was a tease worth reading. Wow! Just when you totally get into it... the story stops. I will be forced to purchase and read the books in their entirety and I won't be complaining.

I never would have read at least two of these stories, but I'm so glad I did. I would definitely recommend this book to get you acquainted with Chris Philbrook. Regardless of your reading style and preference, I think there is something here for almost everyone.
