Like zombies? Like serial fiction? You should check out David Wellington’s latest online novel, Monster Planet. It just started Monday, so you can jump on board quickly. Planet is the third online novel in a trilogy of books dealing with the world after a zombie apocalypse. It’s pretty damn frightening, surprisingly so when I read it first thing in the morning at work. Wellington is a good writer and hits all the right beats for the genre, but actually does surprisingly well at breaking cliches and conventions inherent to horror.
Let’s put it this way: I don’t read horror or sci-fi usually; I do read this. That enough?
Be sure to read the first two books when you have a second, you won’t regret it:
( Also, if you have an iPod or a cellphone, you can read new chapters from those devices as well. )
