    The Midas Touch by N.Fawcett (Genre: Living Dead)

    In the room on the top floor of the apartment block four humans sat quietly, huddled around a small fire lit in what use to be a large expensive ornamental bowl. Next to the fire the window was open, but only just enough to let what little smoke there was escape. Two of the figures were children, warming their hands from the chill of the morning air, their clothes showing dirt from weeks or months of neglect.

    The eldest of the children stared at the corner of the room where a television set stood, a useless parody of what once was. Why they hadn't moved it was a mystery. Watching the reflection of the small fire dance in the screen the boy's mind drifted as he recalled the last broadcast he had seen on a television nearly a year ago: The reporter sat squarely at his desk reading a sheet of paper. Meaningless text scrolled at the bottom of the screen. The man's eyes looked tired. He took a deep breath and put the sheet down. "Reports are now coming in from all parts of the country and nowhere seems safe from their ever increasing numbers. Already hospitals are collapsing under the immense strain and the Civil Defence Forces can seem to do nothing to halt this nightmare. My fellow citizens, the question is now simply one of survival. Is this the end? We have all heard or been told of our judgement, dooms day, the end of the world... Well here it is, right here, right now! What can w-" The child was brought back to reality by his younger sister complaining of the cold.

    Their mother opened her eyes and looked over at her daughter. "It's alright honey, you'll get warm s-."

This years "World War Z" was a surprise hit.

Despite all the news of script troubles and reshoots it was a huge success, so there's little surprise we're going to get to see more zombies sprinting after Brad Pitt.

The sequel will not be directed Marc Foster, but instead by Juan Antonio Bayona.
