5.0 out of 5 stars Freezing cold and zombies. How can can it be? 14 March 2016

You never know what you’re going to get when you meet this author’s zombies. In one book, they were singing Christmas carols. LOL At one point in the story I thought I knew what they’d be doing. But nope, it was something else. Still made me laugh, until I took the time to picture them. Then it was pretty creepy.

The story beings with two strangers meeting on a brutally cold winter’s day. They decide to stick together. The odds are better for survival that way. Two pairs of eyes and ears to warn of approaching zombies.

It’s not long before they run into trouble, narrowly escaping with their lives. It’s now become vital that they find a place to hole up. The zombies don’t get tired. They don’t feel the cold. And they do not stop coming.

From the mind of Anthony Renfro comes a new kind of zombie,. A smart zombie, kind of. They do think, but that doesn’t necessarily make them that smart. Several scenes have me laughing and cringing.

The characters are few. Just two men and a cat. Not including the hoard of zombies.

It’s these characters and their struggles to survive that drive this short story. Make it a deep experience.

The harsh environment of cold winter makes their struggles even harder. It’s bad enough they have to worry about food and warmth. There’s also those zombies who don’t feel the cold.

Not one to shy from gory details, you get plenty here. And the author’s macabre sense of humor shines in the end. You won’t see it coming. Just like one of the characters didn’t. Since it made me laugh, I guess I have a macabre sense of humor too.

The Dead of Winter by Anthony Renfro

As an avid reader of the zombie apocalypse genre, I have learned to immediately recognize if a story or an author is worth reading. And, as with any genre, if my attention is not grabbed within the first few pages, I will set the book aside and most likely not return.

Anthony Renfro’s work consistently grabs my attention and holds my interest. I credit his keen eye for detail and his descriptive style of writing. Also, he does not pander to supposed moral sensibilities, as feasibly possible he writes with one foot firmly planted in realism: Life in the apocalypse will suck and people will die. The Dead of Winter is an exceptional short story that I highly recommend to horror fans and especially to fans of the zombie/apoc/survival genre.

This is the story of Eric and his cat who have survived in a world of zombies. They encounter Bobby and help him out of the cold snowy weather. They hide in an abandoned truck they find and have a peaceful night, but not before Eric discovers some zombies who seem to be able to think.

The detail of the writing takes you right into the story. Enjoy and be scared. I certainly held my breath a few times.
