Last Man Standing by Keith TaylorMy rating: Post-Apocalyptic
This is a (very) short story set in the near future, following a zombie outbreak in Bangkok. The narrator, whose identity is never fully explored, sits in a bar and listens as the sole survivor admits that he's been lying about what really happened that day.
I'm not generally a fan of zombies, but this wasn't really about the zombies. It was about a corrupt regime using a disaster for its own ends, and about one man's utter failure to be heroic in circumstances when most fiction would have demanded heroism. I found it compelling and will keep an eye out for the forthcoming full-length novel.
