After a long week at work, Jake enjoys a Sunday stroll Downtown with the zombies.
Sunday Funday is a short, slightly cheesy zombie story with plenty of action and profanity!
Pick up Sunday Funday for a quick and gory start to your day!
I have this love-hate relationship with zombie books and movies. I’m not a purist, but it still took me a while to accept the speed of the zombies in World War Z. I never got past the first episode of The Walking Dead. I love Shaun of the Dead, but don’t think I need to watch it again. And I can’t watch 28 Days Later again as it scares the crap out of me. But I want to, if that makes any sense? And then there’s Army of the Dead … yeah, no comment.
I really enjoyed Max Brooks’ World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, which is why I keep coming back to the film. And while I did enjoy the I Am Legend movie, Richard Matheson’s story of the same name is sooooo much better in so many ways.
Jake sighed as the light flickered on and he cast his eyes on his latest project: an old car axle casing pinched onto the end of a hardwood baseball bat. Since the zombie population Downtown had dwindled, and Jake was forced, by law, to leave the chainsaw at home, blunt melee weapons were all the rage. “And I’ll turn a few heads with this baby,” he said, patting the metal head before tightening the protruding bolts one last time before breakfast.

There are plenty of zombie tropes to deal with when writing a zombie story and I grabbed a few of them. But at the end of the day, Sunday Funday is really quite silly, but damn it was fun to write! So much fun, in fact, there’s another on the way: Monday Mocha.
