Product description

Product Description

It was the place they stored the junk no one wanted anymore: discarded toys, baby clothes, and ancient secrets from forgotten generations.

But when contagion turns Wesley Harding’s world insane, and horror enters his home, the attic is the last place left to hide.

At nine years old, he finds himself alone in the dark, amid heaped-up piles of the familiar and the unknown.

Gunshots and howls punctuate the thunderstorm outside. Crashes and groans come from below.

There isn’t much time, and Wesley must uncover the secrets of the attic, if he is to survive the night.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Zombie apocalypse is upon us and one nine-year-old boy 15 March 2016
By JC Brennan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Zombie apocalypse is upon us and one nine-year-old boy, Wesley Harding, watches his mother die, his father turn, and is left alone in a dark attic to fend for himself.
Poor Wesley is left up in the creepy attic with his imagination and old memories until he becomes very hungry...
This is a short story that is unique in a way. It is written from the view of a nine-year-old and begs the question: if you were nine and had Zombies downstairs what would you do?

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombie Lover + Whovian WIN! 5 January 2016
By Platypire Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Holy TARDIS of Gallifrey, Doctor! I've never read such a short zombie story before, but this was fantastic. Even if it DIDN'T include Whovianisms! The ending was not what I was expecting at all, and I really enjoyed the whole thing over all.

Bob says: 4 Platypires!

4.0 out of 5 stars The attic. 29 December 2015
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What started out being what I thought was going to be an average zombie tale, turned into a pretty darned good short story! The whole thing was good, but that ending made it well worthwhile. Yep, I'd recommend this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another must read by Mr. Prior 19 December 2015
By Frederick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Interesting change of pace from D.P.Prior ( I'm sure that is why he wrote as Derek ). It still delves into fantasy, just in a more modern way. As you can tell from this excellent story his mind and talent is vast and entertaining. This short story is suspenseful and thought provoking allowing you to conclude the ending on your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Twist on Classic Tale 19 September 2016
By Kay Oliver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The zombie story... it's a classic, but it sure does get old after a hundred stories. Prior on the other hand has taken the classic tale and portrayed it in a new light, from a totally different perspective with a haunting twist.
