Distance V, By Gareth Wood

As a general rule, author flashes are limited to six per year.  Gareth Wood has pioneered a new approach.  Wood created six author flashes that build to tell a single story. I suppose it's more like a piece of serial fiction in 55-word increments. The final three installments will run this week. I'll post the complete series as one post next week.

Read Distance I, Distance II, Distance III, Distance IV




DISTANCE V
by
Gareth Wood


Shelter. Rest. An end to travel, if only for a night. The station was empty of food, but the office locked. No windows.
Unnoticed, a small scratch brought infection. Asleep in the night, fever raged. She woke in the dark, shaking and cold, burning and weak. Knew what the fever meant. Knew she was doomed.
NEXT: Distance VI




Gareth Wood is the author of the zombie novels:

Rise
Age of the Dead

Wood posts regularly on his Facebook page. Keep up with his latest releases and learn more of the backstory to his books.

Intriguingly, Gareth Wood is one of the few zombie authors who was published in Spain before he was ever published in English. This fact is made more interesting because Wood is a resident of CANADA, and doesn't speak a word of Spanish.
