The apocalypse has ended for Adrian Ring, and the rebuilding of the world has begun. But have all the stories of the old world's death been told?
Elsewhere on Earth, there's a plane filled with innocents, and a criminal could wipe it from the skies with a tide of undeath. A young man in Manhattan is going mad with hunger and fear. A veterinarian races to save her animal patients and their owners one by one. A drunk lunatic is driven to self-destruction, craving the undead horde and the absolution they will give him. And finally, what of the long-awaited conclusion to Eddie Smith's tale, as his convoy heads north toward Adrian at Bastion?
Set in the world of Chris Philbrook's best-selling zombie epic Adrian's Undead Diary, Unhappy Endings tells these darkest of stories and many more.
Full list of authors includes: Rob Roche, Tracy Wilson, Josh Green, Christopher MacDonald, Dennis Pekkala, A. Ben Carpenter, Wendi Haegle, and Steve Gonzales.

I'm a huge fan of "Adrian's Diary" - huge - the story's in this collection are all very well
written and fun.
No favorite story - they were all good.
James Foster is AMAZING!!
Day care story was heart wrenching.
Again a huge fan - but I'm not super happy with collections of anything. I think a fluid story - like "Adrian's Diary" is more interesting and fun to listens to. I like to get into characters and love them or hate them- with this collection of stories - well just not a fan- I would not enjoy another book like this.
I am a very eclectic reader. I read non-fiction as well as fiction. I am curious about everything, except math.
Unhappy Endings takes place in the universe of Adrian’s Undead Diary (AUD). If you haven’t read the series I strongly suggest you do before reading Unhappy Endings. Several of the stories contain subtle spoilers within. I purchased Unhappy Endings because I have enjoyed AUD so much. All the stories are good and all involve some aspect of the zombie apocalypse. James Foster does an excellent job narrating the audiobook. His voice is always clear and his volume remains consistent. The production values are great.
What I love best about this book is the author let the fans write most of the stories. So you get a different angle on the whole series
I enjoyed the addition to this series. But I'm a short story lover anyways. And I enjoyed the different styles and stories offered by different writers. I would recommend it to other readers. It was a fun few hours passed while at work for me. Thanks.
If you love "first day" and "outbreak" zombie stories you will love this collection from various writers with Philbrookian taste. One note, some of the stories and characters are left a bit open ended so if that bothers you - you've been warned. A couple of them are not for the faint of heart either - these are serious zombie stories. No sex - thank heavens, plenty of gore, and you don't have to have read Philbrook's other works to listen to this one. Well worth the credit, I would certainly buy the next collection. Immensely enjoyable!
I listen to many audiobooks and review the ones I find most notable.
This is a collection of short stories from the Adrian's Undead Diary universe. They are not all written by the primary author (Chris Philbrook) but they are all considered canon. These stories all have *spoiler alert* unhappy endings. Do you like what I did there? They are all well written. Some of them were so spot on I could not even tell they weren't written by Philbrook. So they are all solid stories. If you liked AUD, you need this. If you have not read any AUD, do not start here. Start with Dark Recollections. You can thank me later, because AUD is pretty much awesomeness.
James Foster is the Man. He narrates this like a boss.
Love the print editions but James Foster helps brings the story to life in a different way and brings a different experience. I love reading then listening to books.
I like the Rednecks group
James is James and always bring a great experience to stories. He's one of my favorite narrators.
I enjoyed the last character the most, name just slipped me. The Self proclaimed Red Neck. He seems like someone Adrian would get along with. I also liked the construction worker and the guy he met up with who escaped in the police car, He also seems like someone that would get along with Adrian.
I'm dying for more. I want a nice 16hr long story with Adrian Ring, Abbey and to hear more stories about the 3 and more adventurous. This story is awesome and must continue but less religion and more of Chris's magical creations. as long as Adrian, abbey Kevin and Michelle stay alive lol. There is so much more that can be told because _hit happens! and there is a whole world out there.
As with all of these books I was left captivated by this world and wishing there were 8 hours left as I neared the end. The books in this series never disappoints.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I downloaded this but am really glad I did! The stories were all great with very different points of view. However, I would recommend reading the AUD series first so you don't spoil any of the details.
