TOP NAME WRITERS ENTER THE REALM OF JOHN RINGO'S BLACK TIDE RISING ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE SERIES!
A collection of all-original stories set in the Black Tide Rising series of novels created by multiple New York Times best-selling author John Ringo Stories by John Ringo, Eric Flint, John Scalzi & Dave Klecha, Sarah Hoyt, Jody Lynn Nye, Michael Z. Williamson and more.
The news that humanity had been dreading for ages had come true. Zombies are real. Worst of all, we created them. The apocalypse was upon us, and every man, woman and child had to answer a simple question of themselves: “What do we do now?” For a group of neighbors in the Chicago suburbs of Northern Indiana, it was “work together or die”...and figure out how to live on top of oil storage tanks to keep the zombies at bay. For the Biological Emergency Response Teams in New York City, it was “how long can we fight off the infected before it's too late” . . .as well as having to fight other groups all out to claim a dwindling stock of supplies and safety. And for a group of cheerleaders, it was about the end of their world. And about what happens when you get a group of physically fit young women really, really angry.
Featuring original stories from some of the brightest stars in the science fiction universe: John Ringo; Eric Flint; John Scalzi; Dave Klecha; Sarah Hoyt; Jody Lynn Nye; Michael Z. Williamson; Kacey Ezell, a cheerleading coach, veteran, and helicopter pilot; and more.
At the publisher’s request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).
Ringo and Poole team up to deliver an uneven anthology of stories about life in Ringo's Black Tide setting, in which humans contend with the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. The first of Ringo's two contributions to the collection, "Never Been Kissed," is also one of the strongest, bringing a touch of wistful humanity sadly lacking in many of the other stories. John Scalzi and Dave Klecha's "On the Wall" is a dialogue-only tale of two men bonding while defending a compound; it's easily the funniest of the batch, though Scalzi fans are likely to find some of the jokes familiar. Mike Massa's "Battle of the BERTs" is an action-packed, tense tale of bank-sponsored security teams patrolling and protecting New York. Eric Flint's "Up on the Roof," a story of neighbors in east Chicago making a go of surviving at a tank farm near an oil refinery, is nearly unreadable. Fans of the universe will find some works to like, but the anthology as a whole is disappointing.
