The First Zombie

A short story about the first zombie, who had not realized his own death. Join Dave on his journey from life and into death.Dave doesn't remember dying. And furthermore, he didn't even realize he was dead. So before we find out anything more about Dave we must fully appreciate that he is dead. Dead in the truest sense of the word. No longer living. But in addition to this we must realize that Dave had no idea that he was dead, why he was dead, when or even how he died. Dave had no idea even how long he had been wandering the world as dead. He told himself he was just busy. Always busy. Distracted is more what he was. Not dead but distracted. Distracted too much by the rigors of life that he had not participated in the events of living and had subsequently not noticed his own death.

Part 2 of the Reggie series. A true zombie road trip across the north of England. Logan wrestles with both the zombies and the monsters inside of himself while Lizzie recalls the fall of New York and the death of her best friend and love of her life, Jason Seven. She thought she has dealt with all the loss she could, but now must watch another friend die through the scope of her gun.Part two of the Reggie series. James Logan had been wrong. He had been wrong about Lizzie and what she had been through as the zombies ravaged the dead city of New York. He had been wrong about the CDC being able to produce enough of the Zolpidem cure to turn the zombie war back in their favor, and most of all, he had been wrong about himself. The battle for D.C had been long and hard. Losing the city meant losing all hope for a world wide cure in super-heating and dispersing a Zolpidem based cure. All the retired General, along with his partner, the tough as nails inner city cop Elizabeth Jones, can do is escape to England by air. There they find themselves on an arduous road trip across the English Countryside and Industrial North East while making for Russia - the only other world superpower known to be working on an alternative dispersal platform for the cure and the last hope for the human race. In the truest zombie road trip, Logan and Lizzie stop at nothing to help all those they meet on the way, while Logan's inner brutality and violence starts to manifest itself in tearing down anything that stands against them. So while Logan wrestles with the monster inside of himself and the zombies bringing about the end of the human race, Lizzie recalls the story of the fall of New York and the death of her best friend, Jason Seven. Lizzie, the raven haired, young, attractive cop, had thought she had learned how to deal with loss. Had thought she had learned how to deal with heartbreak. But now has to watch another true friend die through the scope of her rifle. Against the backdrop of General John Cygan's horrific revelation, only Russia stands as the hope of all mankind.

I don’t even remember hitting the ground. I remember the hyper drive cutting out and I remember the jet engines failing as I tried to land this old crate. But I don’t remember the damn thing hitting the surface of the planet. I suppose that’s what I get for stealing it in the first place. But I just couldn’t work for those jerks for another second.I don’t even remember hitting the ground. I remember the hyper drive cutting out and I remember the jet engines failing as I tried to land this old crate. But I don’t remember the damn thing hitting the surface of the planet. I suppose that’s what I get for stealing it in the first place. But I just couldn’t work for those jerks for another second. I open my eyes to be met with a belting headache. One so bad it feels like I’ve been out on the drink last night, and I’ve had a very good time. Shame that isn’t true. I’m starting to wish this had all been a dream. My back hurts like I’ve snapped every one of my vertebrae on the way to the floor and all of my muscles are burning in pain.

The Final Cut. James Logan wants to save the world but can't. General John Cygan wants to burn it and can. Two friends are thrown onto the opposite sides of a war until brilliant scientist Abe Priest finds a way to end the zombie outbreak once and for all."I think I've figured it out Logan. I think I know what it is.” ... “I asked myself the questions that everyone else is afraid to ask. Just like you told me to. I asked myself: how do you kill that which is already dead? Then I started looking at it like a cold mathematical equation. We got it wrong. We have been fighting the zombies using attrition warfare this whole time. We've been trying to kill them all. But you can’t add death to death and balance an equation. To kill something alive you must minus life. To cancel out death from the other side of the equation you must plus life. Death plus death, I guess, equals more death and imbalance. The equation reversed is “death plus life” and that returns the world to balance. To zero.” Doctor Abraham Priest and General James Logan have what it takes to save the world from the gaping jaws of defeat. But rogue US Air Force General John Cygan would sooner watch it burn than see it fall to the dead. Logan and Abe partner themselves with tough as nails inner city cop, Elizabeth Jones, and army pilot "Jack" as they fight against the clock to save the world. Served with lashings of gore, Reggie takes the genre to somewhere it has seldom been before. Its end.
