Publisher's Summary

A collection of short, disgusting, and mentally disturbed zombie stories for the Internet age. Concise, bittersweet, and stomach-churning, this collection of disgusting, horrifying, and psychological thriller-based zombie stories is the result of a challenge. One night, Kyle Clements and I decided we should write a novella. We came up with the idea of writing stories based on a weekly challenge. Each week, we would send each other a single word, for better or worse. Regardless the word, we had to write at least 1,000 words about the topic. The stories that came out of the challenge are the most terrifying, depraved, sincere, and utterly unreadable works we could have hoped for.
The idea was further based on Edgar Allen Poe's recommendation that a short story should be read within a single sitting. Given society's recent changes in attention span, we realized that 1,000 words in a single sitting would be the best most people could accomplish.
When I introduced the idea to my mother, she was excited until she read the first story. Then she said, "I liked your last work better...." When I sent the novella to our beta readers, their responses were typically a mix between, "This is really great," and "I couldn't finish this story, it was just too disgusting." In the end, I think we adequately accomplished our goal: A challenging read that is both interesting and disgusting at once. It is our hope that you will both enjoy this audiobook and also hate it, yet not demand a refund.

Won the audio to this book, and let me tell you.... It had me gagging at some of the stories, some actually scared me (and I don't scare easy when reading zombie books lol), others left me saying what the fuck to myself. This is a different read (listen) but it was a great collaboration of zombie stories. If your looking for something different this is your read.
