Author: Jonathan Maberry
Series: part 5 of "Rot & Ruin", follows Fire & Ash
Summary: Benny Imura's journey through the Rot & Ruin is well known, but who were the others navigating the ravaged zombie-ridden landscape? Jonathan Maberry returns to fill the gaps in what we know about First Night, suriving the plague, and the land of Rot & Ruin.
Comprising brand-new short stories form Nix's journals as well as previously published short stories, this collection shows a side of the Rot & Ruin series readers have never seen before. And as a bonus, the script of the first issue of the Rot & Ruin comic is included in the back.
I love them all. Most of the time with collections of short stories, there are some that I don't like that much. Not here. I really liked them all and never have been bored or something while reading them.
I also love that some of the stories tell us how some people met, how some people we know from the books went through First Night or certain other stuff after it. I love that we see Tom's and Joe's first meeting and them working together. There are some characters I really would love to know what happened to them - Dan and Mason being on top of that list.
A certain thing really blew my mind and if that is (still) true. Oh. My. God. These poor people.
All in all, a great collection of short stories in this universe. :)
