Season of Rot, by Eric S. Brown
Book Review by Michael D. Griffiths
Have you read this book?
This was the second of Mr.
Brown's books that I've had the pressure of reading. Eric Brown is
quickly becoming known as the King of Zombies and now has a full 17
books published, which focus primarily on the subject of mankind's doom
being brought about by a zombie driven apocalypse.
authors that attempt to give every story a heroic and happy ending, Eric
has no such qualms. Personally, I think the man is secretly rooting
for the undead most of the time. But let's just say if it ever comes to
me having to live through a zombie apocalypse, I sure hope Mr. Brown
isn't my God.
The book itself
consists of five well thought out and very different novellas. The one
thing they all do have in common is their genre breaking styles. Yep,
sure they all have zombies, but none of these are your standard moaning
zombie fair. Each story has a unique and original twist. In all cases
Eric takes what is already a horrible situations for the survivors and
makes it much much worse.
twists range from technological to supernatural, but always keep the
reader guessing. Unlike many books out there, if you can figure out how
the story is going to end or what is really happening, then you either
have psychic abilities yourself, or you are Eric Brown. I would
strongly recommend this book to all zombie lovers and any horror loving
that would like to try this sub-genre.
