Zombies of Iwo Jima by Dane Hatchell is a fun corpse tale with a historical gimmick. For the most part this is a free sample of his current zombie novel, but he does toss us this undead bone with a hunk of ghoulish raw meat on it. I didn’t read the novel excerpts.
Instead of alternate history, Dane gives us “substitution” history. He adds a deadly mix of zombies to the monumental battle in a traditional style that zombie fans are sure to enjoy. I really liked his characters for such a short work, and his reason for bombing Nagasaki and Hiroshima blends very well into the zombie mythology.
I give this story three severed heads. It’s per5fect for a quick horror break..
p.s. I have a feeling zombie fans will like his zombie novel. I may read one myself.
