Zombie Stories for People with Short Attention Spans
A collection of short, disgusting, and mentally disturbed zombie stories for the internet age. Concise, bittersweet, and stomach-churning. "This collection of disgusting, horrifying, and psychological thriller-based zombie stories is the result of a challenge. One night Kyle Clements and I decided we should write a novella. We came up with the idea of writing stories based on a weekly challenge. Each week we would send each other a single word, for better or worse. Regardless the word we had to write at least 1,000 words about the topic. The stories that came out of the challenge are the most terrifying, depraved, sincere, and utterly unreadable works we could have hoped for. The idea was further based on Edgar Allen Poe's recommendation that a short story should be read within a single sitting. Given society's recent changes in attention span we realized 1,000 words in a single sitting would be the best most people could accomplish. When I introduced the idea to my mother she was excited, until she read the first story. Then she said 'I liked your last work better...' When I sent the novella to our beta readers their responses were typically a mix between, 'This is really great' and 'I couldn't finish this story, it was just too disgusting.' In the end, I think we adequately accomplished our goal. A challenging read that is both interesting and disgusting at once. It is our hope that you will both enjoy this book and also hate it; yet not demand a refund."
