The Emergency Room – A Flash Fiction Zombie Story

13 Mar

I regain consciousness to find I’m strapped to a bed and cannot move. I hear someone shuffling towards me and see a flash of white coat. There’s an odd odour in the air; almost like decaying flesh. A shadow looms over me then teeth tear into my neck and I know I’m going to die.


Flash (or micro) fiction aims to tell a whole story within a specific short word limit. For this one, I borrowed the 55 word target from the Zombie Authors blog, a site I’d highly recommend visiting. A PDF of this story can be downloaded from here.

From the author of For Those In Peril On The Sea, a tale of post-apocalyptic survival in a world where zombie-like infected rule the land and all the last few human survivors can do is stay on their boats and try to survive. Now available in the UK, and available as an ebook and in print in the US from the 21st March 2013. Click here or visit to find out more.
