Recommendsday Review - Preparations by Mark Mills

Today's recommendsday review is Mark Mill's short story Preparations.

Ronald T. Turner is prepared for anything. And the zombies are prepared for him.

***Spoiler Alert***

Ronald Turner is one of those guys who has a zombie plan. Ok, so his zombie plan actually borders on obsessive-compulsive control freak zombie expert...and that's coming from a self-professed zombie enthusiast. Unfortunately, knowledge doesn't translate into ability for Robert. And while the short, short length of this short story is populated with references to Ronald's all-encompassing zombie knowledge, it doesn't sustain him. It gives him only enough time to act in one slightly humorous way.

This short story is amusing. I don't know that it's worth the $.99 price tag attached to it at Barnes and Noble (it's only 9 pages, not all of those are text, and not a whole lot is accomplished save the punch line), having already bought it I'm not sorry I read it.

Rating: 3/5
