Bunyan Undead by Joseph Williams is a treat for fans of the undead and American folklore. I admit, being a resident of Michigan, the setting intrigued me, but the way the author took a folklore legend and twisted Paul Bunyan into a raging undead monster was too good to resist!
I’m not sure what this says about me, but I really enjoyed all of the bad guys in this story – they just seem to have far more personality than the “good” guys…Angus, for example, is one sick cannibalistic psycho, but he appears more focused than other characters, such as Captain Haley and pregnant Marina.
There are so many sharp differences in the various groups of survivors that, whenever they cross paths, it’s quite an orchestration of chaos. Williams is one hell of a horrific story-teller!
I’m not sure if this is a stand-alone or not, but I hope this story will be continued.
