This entire short story was a surprise with a “WOW” shocking ending. Takes place in Mexico on Spring Break with the beaches packed. (It made me wish I was somewhere hot right now). He captures the main character’s deep emotional sadness, loss and feeling alone. How grief and death can cause destruction to your whole world. Yet, the core of the story asks the question who is more a monster?

Man, or beast…….

Gwen is on Spring Break in Mexico with her girlfriend. No one understands her

Spring Outbreak flowed the smoothest and was the most enrapturing of the stories from this months horde. There was a better lead up to the crazy that follows.

Demmer’s endings can be somewhat abrupt at times, but this time it did not bother me. It felt appropriate. Demmer has great ideas, I look forward to when he expands on ...more

I love how quickly this turned horrific.
And even though you know zombies are coming because of the cover and the title, there was a whole extra danger that added an unexpected level of "Oh, crap."
Good stuff. Nice quick...well, maybe not the best beach read. (wink, wink)
