Title: Dead Meat
Author: Chris & Patrick Williams
Format: E-book & Paperback
Publisher: Permuted Press
River’s Edge has a problem. A severe outbreak of rabies has been declared and people are dying by the truckload. Sort of. A survivor by the name of Gavin who is trying to find his family has a feeling there is something more to this rabies outbreak and as the story progresses, and he encounters other survivors he discovers just what.
River’s Edge is full of zombies and they’re hungry. Before long Gavin and his rag tag group have dubbed the zombies ‘bees’ in ‘honor’ of the way they swarm when attacking – and not only do the survivors have to watch out for the bees, they are also in danger of being killed by the exterminators. Exterminators are soldiers who have been sent to well…exterminate the zombies. Or anything they might come across.
Ok I have to be honest up front. I’m not a zombie fan. The idea makes me feel a little ill – not in an ‘oh please, get real’ kind of way. It’s more of an ‘oh please excuse me, I think I’m going to be sick’ kind of way. I think it has something to do with the way zombies are portrayed as being so relentless and hungry…but I digress.
Originally an online, serialised novel Dead Meat was no different, it made me feel ill. But that is not a criticism – it’s a compliment. Well written with strong narrative, excellent characters and yes nausea inducing descriptions, Dead Meat is a good addition to any horror library and a must read for any zombiephile. Yes, such things exist. My sister is one….
It’s impossible to not be drawn into the horror and desperation Gavin experiences as the story advances and this is testimony to the talent of the authors. A little online research suggests there are more instalments to come and I certainly hope so as the brothers’ style and talent has certainly hooked me. Even if I am double checking all the locks tonight.
