THE DISEASED, By Keith Barclift


Keith Barclift has completed his first online novella.  The Diseased  is a fourteen-chapter online zombie novella that recounts the struggles of a small band of survivors in and around Atlanta, Georgia. 



Read

The Diseased

from the beginning




Or, start with this sample
Prologue
From Atlanta, you can reach eighty percent of the population of the United States within a sixteen hour drive.  Not to mention the city was home to the world’s busiest international airport.  When Dwight D. Eisenhower came up with the Interstate System, he had no idea that it would be used to spread a disease that would be as infectious at the Spanish Flu and resembled the offspring of Rabies and Mad Cow Disease.






Jule Says:

At First Glance:

Each chapter of the zombie novella begins with an epigraph. Some of them serve to illustrate the main character, and some provide exposition about the zombie plague itself. 

For the most part, the manuscript is clearly written with fewer grammatical errors than most online zombie serials. The vocabulary is more sophisticated than most.

Overall Appearance:

The site is relatively easy to navigate using the top menu bar. The overall appearance of the work is professional and uncluttered.
