Top Shelf Short Stories: Dead After Dying
Dead After Dying
by Dan DeWitt
A zombie story! No short story reading marathon would be complete without a zombie story! And this was a really good one - touching even. The story is about the narrator and his friend Donnie - who is a zombie.
The storyline basically follows the narrator who has realized his friend is now a zombie and is trying to kill him. The narrator fights him off again and again, but finds it difficult to place the final blow. He says it's so because he keeps remembering the promises they made to each other, that they would go "beyond the end."
This story is quite different than any other zombie story I've read. It's very sad and thus, very very good.
Read it because you, dear reader, deserve to read a good zombie story.
