My favorite story is the last, John Ringo's "The Meaning of Freedom". In this story Ringo poses a conundrum for consideration that does give one pause for thought. It's the kind of question that made me a fan of John Ringo's Black Tide series in the first place.
I really enjoyed the book and read it in a day. I think there should be at least a couple more compilations to come and I look forward to reading them.
Oh, and if there was ever a real zombie apocalypse, I'd want a friend like "Grandpa" Thompson to hang with!
I devoured the four Tide books by John Ringo. This collection of short stories by a dozen different authors makes for a fun addition to that series. Hopefully, Mr. Ringo will eventually please his readers by renewing the original saga with his characters moving to the Pacific from the Atlantic. In the meantime, we have several different takes on the subject from famous and not famous author. All good, fame or not.
We might think of the stories as a series of snap shots, the trials and dangers of different people in different places who all suffer in the Zombie outbreak. The outbreak impacts everyone, high school cheer leaders and chained criminals alike. Each story has a unique flavor to reflect the taste and talent of the various scribes.
Each and every story has a value and each and every meets the high standards that we like in Mr. Ringo's writing.
Other authors have spun successful series into successful series of shorter fiction by other authors. I hope Mr. Ringo will find it interesting to follow up this collection with others. I hope so. I also hope for the Pacific expedition to come to print some day.
Ringo has some fascinating thoughts on the nature of the human condition to share with us, and he does so. Thanks.
John Ringo wrote the first four books in the series on his own. Now he has brought in an entire hoard of authors to flesh out the series. This particular book is a series of short stories about the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. Even John Scalzi has a short story in there about equality on the wall. I must admit that the short story of the people relocating themselves to the top of an oil tank farm was interesting.
For those who do not know, John Ringo's zombie apocalypse was started by a rogue biologist who integrated a rabies virus payload into a flu virus, H7D3. The airborne incubation period is about a week or so. The saliva incubation period is less than a day. The resulting mess is a total top brain blowout. Nasty.
Each story is a stand alone and in most cases, is the start of a great book. In fact, the most frustration I had was when the tension was rising, things were interesting... then the story ends! Curses John Ringo, curses!
Faith makes a brief appearance in one story, then her Dad in another. Both are set in the period after the "Black Tide" series but don't answer any of the lingering questions.
Certain stories show a lack of familiarity with the plot of the series. Just say you can't go to a "Doc in a Box," chop up a cheerleader and have the vaccine the same evening. Sea wolf gave a detailed description that somebody skipped.
Hopefully, a couple of the stories will be expanded into full books. I'd really like to see what happens to the red headed mailman.

Had initially not bothered with 'a zombie book' until late last year when I read the first in the series from John Ringo, and was hooked on this world.
This is a collection of stories about the end, lots of heroes in it and of course tons of zombies.
Interesting ideas explored - camping on top of a tank farm? New one on me in a disaster!
My favourite story was quite unusual for me, two guys standing guard on a wall. One a veteran marine, one who didn't have much idea about guns. Very different guys and the story is mostly just the two of them - but told very well. If you haven't got a gun use a shovel!
A great addition to the zombie apocalypse world John Ringo has created and hopefully more stories to come. Lots more heroes to be made.
Would recommend this book
