    I’m not gonna lie, when I first started listening to this one I was completely repulsed. I’m not the biggest ‘Living Dead’ fan, and the descriptions you provided were vivid enough that my stomach turned at a couple of places (I have a fragile constitution, forgive me).

    However, like any good story, the ending made the whole of the story make so much more sense. I’m glad I stuck it out. I don’t care what you say hun, it takes a fair level of talent to be able to map out a story like this, so that the reveal at the end makes everything complete.

    I’m not gonna say I’ll revisit this story as I have a few others, but kudos should definitely be given. So here…here’s some kudos for you…No, come on, you can have a little more. I promise, they’re low in calories, take as many as you want. πŸ˜‰

  2. I often forget that people aren’t necessarily interested in the same sort of thing as I am. It’s a bad habit. I wrote this story not because I have any particular interest in zombies, but rather just because I felt like writing a story from the perspective of one of the undead. It was a spur of the moment thing. To discover that the story had the desired effect on you is immensely gratifying to me. My mother had a very similar reaction, so at least I know I can make mothers and pregnant women queasy with my words. πŸ™‚

  3. This was a very good story. One suggestion that might start a laborious precedent but would be cool for this one since it’s got a certain tone and style that would support it. Maybe add a little amibient ominous music and environmental sounds here and there? It’s a great story as is though and your author’s afterward is stellar as always. thanks again Paul.
