You know how in zombie apocolypse shows, there is never a government? That’s always irritated me, because there will always be a government. How would the government try to stop the zombies? How would the government save as many as possible? After the crisis is over, how would the government get the country working again? Who would live and who would die in an apocolypse, zombie or otherwise? I always had these questions, but most zombie shows show this world of small towns and travelers, with nary a government zombie checkpoint in sight. Well, one of my favorite authors I edit tackled that issue in his short story, Fortress Pentagon, about how the government would try to contain a zombie apocolypse. It’s a fast-paced, nail-biting read, and I loved it. It brought up scenarios and issues I’d never thought about. I’m hoping he’ll do a full-length novel in this world. If you’re a zombie lover, this story gives you a whole new perspective on the undead dead. And only 99 cents — how do you beat that?
