Last Caress - Steven Thor Gunnin

Author: Steven Thor Gunnin
Date: 2010
Setting: The present, some U.S. city
Availability: In the anthology Elements of the Soul

Story:A woman named Mary is holed up in an apartment building after some major catastrophe has occurred. She and her neighbor, Frank, are attempting to keep the threat from getting to them. A younger man, Mike, stops by. Although Mary can hardly tolerate Mike, she tries to be civil, since he is also one of the survivors.

Mary's husband, Jack, seems to be missing. But where is he?

I have to confess that I'm really ignorant of this genre, and did not ever realize that this was a tale about zombies. Therefore, I suspect that any comments I might make are meaningless. The story was creepy; in that it was definitely successful. If you are a zombie fan, this is sure to please.

Author info: Steven Thor Gunnin is a graphic designer who writes in his spare time, and is a big fan of George Romero (Night of the Living Dead). Last Caress is Gunnin's first published story.
