Great news for everyone looking for a great read at a great price (and isn’t that all of us, really?): The Creepers by Norman Dixon Jr. (@normandixonjr) is on sale today (11/23) and tomorrow for $.99!
I gave the book five stars (read my review) and consider it among The Best I Read in 2013. Twenty years after the zombie apocalypse, there are outposts where the living barely hang on amid the untold numbers of the risen dead.
But this isn’t just another zombie story. Indeed, Mr. Dixon’s take on the genre is both fresh and engaging, and frighteningly realistic. The initial, mind-blowing panic of the dead rising and feasting on the living is long gone — although, of course, not forgotten. Death by Creeper bite still happens, but life for the living has settled into a rhythm, of sorts. Of course there are action scenes and scares, but I also enjoyed exploring this ‘more mature’ post-apocalyptic world.
