The Pied Piper of the Undead - Michael Whetzel
I've never been a zombie person, but I decided to take a chance with this short, and I'm glad I did. The story is well written and paced. It manages to avoid cliche while tackling a topic that's been (excuse the pun) beaten to death. Scenes where the main character encounters friends, family, and love interests, now all zombified are striking and well done.
