110:81 San Diego 2014: The Last Stand of the California Browncoats by Mira Grant

A prequel to the Newsflesh trilogy.  The rumors of a zombie outbreak are just starting to circulate through the country and people are still considering it a hoax more than anything and packing up to go to Comicon as usual.  It will be the last big gathering of people like this to ever take place.

The preview night is underway, the dealers are almost done setting up their booths, and the crowds are growing.  All it takes is just one person not feeling well deciding to attend one of the largest gatherings of people for all hell to break loose.

Another brilliant story in an amazing world.  Even in just a short novella, Ms. Grant manages to infuse her characters with depth and make us care what happens, even when we know what's coming.  I'm not normally one for zombie novels but hers are just absolutely incredible.
