  • Who's There?

    There was a heavy thudding at the door, I’m not paranoid but there was something about the arrhythmic nature of the knocking that made me wary. “Wait, don’t open it.” I looked through the peephole and had my fears confirmed. ...

  • History Lesson

    The phone being out was potentially bad news but I wasn’t going to let my kids realise anything was amiss, I turned my attention back to my son. “How come you haven’t been taught about the outbreak in your history lessons?” R...

  • Old Hands and Bad News

    My mobile started ringing so I could avoid the question, I don’t normally answer withheld numbers but I was glad for the distraction. I recognised the voice of my father-in-law. “Hi Jim, how’s it going.” “Not well Tom, I&#...

  • What I Did In The War

    “What did he mean, about you knowing how dangerous zombies are?” Damn my son had good hearing when he wanted to. “He just meant that I’d lived through the outbreak.” “What about being recalled, why do you have a gun?...

  • It walks

    The problem was the blade stabbed in his back should have been the clue. He had just pulled the knife out. Did they think cutting his heart out would really stop him. They obviously had not read up on their zombie folklore.

  • How I Met Your Mother

    “I told you I didn’t want guns in the house.” It was pointless trying to be mad, after all, a semi-automatic shotgun was exactly what was needed right now. “We both know I’m going to win this argument so lets not waste tim...

  • How Do You Kill a Zombie?

    “So how exactly do you kill a zombie?” Jerry slurred next to me, sipping a Bloody Mary. “Jeez, Jerry, you bash its brains out,” Evie said. “Not rocket surgery.” “Just asking. I heard that they actually can surv...

  • the so-called lucky survivor's lament (Mature)

    It’s been five – no, wait. It’s been seven – Has it really been a week? Only a week? More than a week? You know what? Fuck it. It doesn’t matter. Time doesn’t mean anything, anymore. It’s not like I have to kno...

  • Chuck

    I mean, it’s nobody’s fault, really. We rested whenever it was safe, though that wasn’t very often. Most of those first few days were spent running, creeping, hiding. But even sitting motionless and silent under those circumstances is stressful. ...

  • Risk Assessment

    He could see the whole playground clearly through the binoculars. There were four zombies, crouched over the body they’d pulled apart on the wood mulch. So far, they were ignoring the baby in the safety swing even though it was clearly screaming it

  • Who's There?

    “Rob? Is that you?” The answer was a slow, soft knocking. “Who is it!?” She had seen the news reports; the apartment was locked up tight. Rob had gone to work that morning, but she was expecting him any minute. “…Rob?” The slow knocking c...

  • Mom

    Both kids came home sick from school Thursday. By Friday afternoon they were so sick she drove them to the hospital, but the ER was closed, swamped. She made them as comfortable as she could at home. The family doctor didn’t answer his phone. The kid...

  • Suvivor's Lament (part deux)

    I’ve seen my fair share of shit since this thing started; we all have. So I don’t get why no one else fucking understands that there is no “getting through this”. And that smell! I bet when you watched all those zombie movies gr...

  • The World May Be Done, But Love Is Never-ending (Mature)

    I finally found her. I must have tracked that no-good bitch for days after she got away from me. I thought when her new man was out of the picture it would all be easy. I hadn’t noticed how many of the shambling bastards were in the bushes the n...

  • I don't have to run fast . . . (Mature)

    Run! They came out of nowhere and I just did what came natural. I could hear the screams of Billy behind me. It’s kinda sick but it really is just like the old joke “I don’t have to run fast, I just have to run faster than you”....

  • The Hunger

    Damn it’s dark. I get up off the ground and look around. All I remember is hearing an extremely loud noise, like an explosion. I whipped around to check it out, saw a huge green flash in the sky and I blacked out. Woke up here, must be hours late...

  • The Restaurant of Horror (Mature)

    Lilian cautiously entered the resteraunt, examining every inch of the room for an enemy siting. She no longer worried about trying to avoid the puddles of blood all over the ground. Suddenly she heard something from behind the bar. She quickly turned h...

  • To Finish Off The Meal... (Mature)

    The zombie lapped the blood up from each organ before biting into it. Some yellow and white juices squirted out, mixing with the taste of blood in his mouth and the tough, chewing organ tissue. The heart was most delectable. It was still warm with bloo...

  • What doesn't kill you.... (Mature)

    I walk up the aisle to grab a couple granola bars. I hate those damn things but they have no expiration date. Not really. My hippie mom used to put them in my lunch box when I was a kid. Tofu too. Nastiest shit ever created. I don’t think human flesh...

  • The True Survivors' Creed

    Translation is impossible; understanding less likely. Only our actions remain. Our elevated minds know this is true. It is like the hunger; like the fully encompassing community in which we now dwell: it cannot be questioned. The not-us resist. We reca...

  • Help Arrives

    We heard the engine of a truck pulling up outside our house. My wife sighed with relief. “The council’s here.” My son pressed his eye to the peephole. Voices outside gave orders and followed procedure. There was a thud, then a knock a...

  • Ruck Up & Move Out

    I sit with my back against the shelves at the end of the health food aisle. I cradle my Glock in my lap. I stare at my backpack between my feet. Coyote tan, two old bullet holes in it, the burn marks small and barely noticeable. I remember when I was s...
