FREE: The Extinction Parade: An Original Zombie Story By Max Brooks

Max Brooks, the bestselling author of World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide, has just released a new short story via The Daily Beast site - The Extinction Parade. This time around, Brooks takes a look at the zombie apocalypse as seen through the eyes of vampires.

It was a man, or had been one recently. The right side of his body was still smooth and supple. The left side had been badly charred. Dark, viscous fluid oozed from numerous, steaming wounds.
