'Zombie Tales: Primrose Court Apt 205' is the first story of three short stories which are in the same universe of 'Don of the Living Dead' by Robert DeCoteau. Theodore Granger lives in Apartment 205, he owns Primrose Court and is agoraphobic (a fear of public places) and today is the first time in ten years that he is leaving his apartment to meet his therapist, Theodore wants to go out, he knows he has to but due to a never~ending bad luck streak, Theodore believes he is cursed, bad things happen around him and lives are lost, and Theodore becomes ill.

As Theodore waits to face the world, his neighbours are annoying him as usual (his neighbours incessant arguing and the strange teenager who lives above them) but what he and his neighbours do not realise, is that the world is changing outside for everyone.

Theodore Granger has to be the most unluckiest person in the world and I understood completely why he could not face going outside. Despite the fact its a short story, Robert DeCoteau successfully highlights Theodore agoraphobia in a real and sympathetic way which made for interesting reading. By the end of the story, you will wish along with Theodore that he really should have stayed at home.

An interesting introduction showing the human side of an approaching Zombie outbreak.
