Friday Fictioneers – Interview

24 01 2013

Hello world. The Friday Fictioneers are a collection of people who love to write 100 words of fiction on a Friday. I’m no writer, but I joined in just for the fun of it. Why not have a go? Visit Rochelle’s blog to find out more.

This weeks photo prompt is shown below. Sun, sand, palm trees … only one thing missing … zombies!

Extract from interview with Corp. Brian ‘Zed-Bait’ Duffey – June 14th, 2015

My job was to let them catch a glimpse of me, then hightail it back to the squad. Sure enough, they would soon follow; shuffling and moaning.

This one time they were on the beach, see? All dressed up in their cruising finery: dinner jackets and evening dresses, ruined from walking back to land. As each pallid corpse came down the path, a single shot to the forehead took it down, only for the next one to crawl over the twitching body. The pile would get higher and higher, until finally… no more zombies.

But there were always more zombies.

This weeks inspiration came from recently reading the excellent World War Z (An Oral History of the Zombie War), by Max Brooks.  It’s now been turned into a blockbuster movie starring Brad Pitt, and is out this summer.
