The Dead Don't Knock by Matt Shaw

This is the story of a man stuck in their house during a zombie invasion. His wife has gone - she went to look for survivors and never came back. We are taken on a journey through his innermost thoughts as he prepares to leave as well. Can he find survivors or is he the only one.

This was great. It's not easy to write a zombie story without any actual zombies in it but Matt has achieved it. It was tautly written - and I really got inside the lead characters head. Then blam! There was a fantastic twist in the ending. A brilliant short by a talented writer.
