Again, like "In Deepest Silence," I loved the writing, the story, the sheer inventiveness of putting a new spin on a well-worn horror trope... but the ending left me with more fizzle than pop. Overall, however, a good read.

It's definitely not a WHIZBANGPOW! ending, but I liked that it was kind of depressing, unsettling a bit.

I loved this one.

I loved that Ken was so excited he was emailing us all and demanding we read it right away.

He never does that shit.

This is one of my favorites from the issue. And, yes, when Ken sent out the email for us all to read this story while jumping up and down it did get my curiosity piqued. I loved it from the first read and I was with them every minute on their trip to the other zone.

I kept waiting for a zombie that didn't react to Shakespear... lol But that's me.

I enjoyed this story, and the idea of a bunch of kids setting off to save the world... I'll just say I am knee deep in the third Ender novel by Orson Scott Card... Very Happy
