    RIZEN is a chilling collection of stories that will have you on the edge of your seat! A plague has caused the dead to rise and stalk the living.... "The Chosen": Ten years after the zombie apocalypse, Dan and his family try to stake out a new life for themselves in rural Wyoming. When he encounters a mysterious group of survivors who call themselves The Chosen, Dan is unsure whether he can trust them. "The White Fist": Five years after the first of the infected reach Texas, pockets of survivors are reminded that the living can be even more dangerous than the dead.

    The reader is a little overly dramatic, and the stories are so short they are more like essays , but I did enjoy listening.

    If society collapsed, could you survive? When Morgan Carter's car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country's power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored - if it ever will be.

    I LOVED this book!
    If there is one thing A. American needs, it's an editor -STAT. And the narrator, Duke Fontaine needs a lesson in timing. However, this story grabbed me, and I just downloaded part 2. I guess this goes to show that you do not have to be a gifted writer to tell a good story. That is all.

    Earth is bombarded by a meteorite storm large enough to envelope the globe. Cities are devastated, satellites are knocked from the sky, and fires rage unchecked all over the world. In the midst of this apocalypse, a small country town, an Antarctic research station, and a group of stranded airline passengers struggle to survive, even as a new horror rises from the ashes.

    Daniel Fite does good work developing several different characters in preparation for the zompoc to come. Unfortunately this short piece doesn't get down to the zombies appearing, but I enjoyed the writing, and the reading enough to search out the next part of the story.

    The sequel to the best-selling Zombie, Ohio, this explosive supernatural thriller from Scott Kenemore tells the story of three Chicagoans who have been thrown together by a bizarre, interconnected series of events during the first 24 hours of a zombie outbreak in the Midwest's largest city. A partnership is crafted between a pastor from Chicago's rough South Side, an intrepid newspaper reporter, and a young female musician, all of whom are fighting for survival as they struggle to protect themselves and their communities in a city overrun with the walking dead.

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    Brinkley Springs is a quiet little town. Some say the town is dying. They don't know how right they are. Five mysterious figures are about to pay a little visit to Brinkley Springs. They have existed for centuries, emerging from the shadows only to destroy, to kill. To feed. They bring with them terror and carnage, and leave death and blood in their wake. As the night wears on, Brinkley Springs will be quiet no longer. Screams will break the silence. But when the sun rises again, will there be anyone left to hear?

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. The dialog too, I guess.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The premise was great... The characters, not so much.


    What didn’t you like about Monty Lewis Sauerwein’s performance?

    He has a voice for narration but no natural ability -or learned ability to read aloud...he is completely robotic. And, if you can't effect a female voice -don't do one.


    Did A Gathering of Crows inspire you to do anything?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Brian Keene - this wasn't his best, but it was interesting.

    What would have made Zombie Apocalypse Diary Entry #1 better?

    More story, this was just about to get interesting and it was done.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah Pinborough again?

    Yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Too dramatic, and she sounded younger than the 13 year old in the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Zombie Apocalypse Diary Entry #1?

    There wasn't enough of the story to cut!

    When the end finally occurred, everything about it was cinematic. The dead came back and ate people, civilization collapsed, and no one could do a thing. But Cyrus V. Sinclair couldn’t care less; he’s a sociopath. Amidst the chaos, Cyrus sits back and contemplates the gore stained streets and screams of his fellow man with little more emotion than one of the walking corpses. With his cache of guns and MREs, he rather likes the idea of hunkering down in his Seattle apartment while the world ends outside.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who enjoy books sympathetic to sociopaths.


    What could Eloise J. Knapp have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The story didn't pull me in and make me understand why Cyrus felt the way he did. I'm not sure if the idea behind the story was to make the reader hope the main character dies a horrible death or to create sympathy for him, but I kind of wanted him dead. I wasn't sure who to root for. I think the emphasis was too heavy establishing Cyrus was 'different'.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Too slow!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation!

    Heidi Hawthorne is a 37-year-old FM radio DJ and a recovering drug addict. Struggling with her newfound sobriety and creeping depression, Heidi suddenly receives an anonymous gift at the station - a mysteriously shaped wooden box branded with a strange symbol. Inside the box is a promotional record for a band that identifies themselves only as The Lords. There is no other information. She decides to play it on the radio show as a joke, and the moment she does, horrible things begin to happen.

    Really disappointing effort from Rob Zombie. Whole story was just background for gore. What did I expect? Gore, sure but storytelling would have also been nice.
