Read full description of the books Zombie Apocalypse! Horror Hospital:
The first two books in the "Zombie Apocalypse" series were a sort of literary jam session featuring many of the best authors in the horror genre. This next entry is a solo effort. On the basis of slight familiarity with his other work, I'd say that Morris can be an excellent writer, but here he seems defeated by zombie-pulp formulae mostly absent from the earlier books, which were characterized at least as much by imagination and mood as by violence and gore.
There's simply nothing in the present book which isn't slam-bang action. Morris handles it well enough, but the novel aspires to so little that it's scarcely worth your time (unless, of course, nonstop slam-bang action is exactly what you're looking for). He doesn't descend to the puerilities of Max Brooks, and fleeting glimpses of our dystopian near-future are interesting, but he also doesn't seem interested in combining enthusiastic pulp trashiness with nifty ideas and insolent wit, as the folks at Abaddon Books regularly manage to do with ease.
So, a disappointment. I see Lisa Morton is presiding over the next installment––a good choice. She should be adept at juggling imagination and action.
Read information about the authorMark Morris became a full-time writer in 1988 on the Enterprise Allowance Scheme, and a year later saw the release of his first novel, Toady. He has since published a further sixteen novels, among which are Stitch, The Immaculate, The Secret of Anatomy, Fiddleback, The Deluge and four books in the popular Doctor Who range.
His short stories, novellas, articles and reviews have appeared in a wide variety of anthologies and magazines, and he is editor of the highly-acclaimed Cinema Macabre, a book of fifty horror movie essays by genre luminaries, for which he won the 2007 British Fantasy Award.
His most recently published or forthcoming work includes a novella entitled It Sustains for Earthling Publications, a Torchwood novel entitled Bay of the Dead, several Doctor Who audios for Big Finish Productions, a follow-up volume to Cinema Macabre entitled Cinema Futura and a new short story collection, Long Shadows, Nightmare Light.
