When the dead rise in Houston, Dave and Chris Thompson find themselves stranded on the top floor of the Liberty Medical Center, with nowhere to run and no help in sight.

*WARNING* This story is about 10,000 words, or 36 pages long in paperback – a little longer than a short story, but shorter than a novella.
It’s been three years since the undead dragged mankind kicking and screaming from the top of the food chain and sent him scurrying into the dark corners of a dead world.
For a beleaguered band of survivors in southern Arizona, life is about to go from bad to worse. The rains have failed and, they have no choice but to leave the safety of their home in search of water. But before they can make their move, they must face a new threat from the undead, a threat beyond anything in their worst nightmares.
On a drilling rig off the coast of Texas, Megan Pritchard and a desperate group of survivors cling to a meager existence in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. When they hear rumors of a safe zone on the far side of the ocean, they must decide whether to risk all in search of a better life or to stay and accept what they have. Unbeknownst to them, a new threat, one worse than anything they’ve yet faced, lurks in wait.
As mankind’s reign on earth draws to a violent close, survivors Megan Pritchard and Jack Wolfe navigate the zombie-infested post-apocalyptic wasteland of the former United States in search of a safe place to ride out their last days. From the scorching deserts of southern Arizona to wilds of the Texas gulf coast, their attempts to find salvation are met with death and destruction at every turn. As options dwindle and despair mounts, their worst fears are realized: there is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. In order to survive, they must change and adapt to their new place in the world. The alternative is extinction.
This omnibus contains the first three stories in the Elements of the Undead series – Fire, Air, and Earth.
A peaceful life in the country is all homemaker Eileen ever wanted. Her dreams come true when her husband retires from the Baltimore Police Department after two decades and announces they’re leaving the big city for an old farmhouse in rural Virginia.
The reality of retired life, however, is anything but ideal. A career steeped in violence has irrevocably tarnished her husband, leaving him bitter and angry at the world, a mere shell of the man she fell in love with a lifetime ago.
When a crazed group of men attack her home late one night, Eileen is forced to confront her deepest fears about her life and her marriage, and in the process, discovers there may be something worth saving after all.
