Looks like a new independant zombie book is in the works. There are a ton of these floating around. However, I’ve had the pleasure of reading the first 3 chapters of this one – which S. Johnathan Davis, the author, sent to me direct.
It starts out in NY just as the zombie apocalypse begins. The main Character, John, is and his new-found buddy Kyle have to escape the city to make it down 900 miles to Atlanta to get to Johns wife. I get the feeling that it’s going to be a long journey. There are elements from all sorts of zombie stories embedded. The way Davis described it to me, he’s writing the zombie story for the zombie genre “fan boy” – ie, the story that he would want to read.
Davis will be posting updates on the site. Evidently, he’s still writing it.
There is something about it that stands out. The writing style is narrative, and so far the story is really good. I would recommend heading over to www.zombiebook.net to sign up for the alerts for when it’s ready and published on the site for free.
