Zombies in the Midlands

“The Risen” by Adam J. Smith I've never been a big fan of the Zombie Apocalypse theme. There have been clever stories, a few interesting variations, but mostly they tend to run together. Unlike vampires and werewolves, zombies themselves are not interesting characters. The only interesting characters in a ZA story are the humans, pushed to their limits by the horrors around them. In “The Risen”, we see a young British couple caught up in world in which the dead walk...and feed. Story-wise, not a great deal happens. Mostly it's just Nate and Ruby plodding through a Hellish landscape (a “hellscape” as Smith cleverly calls it) and trying to survive. But their journey feels very authentic
