    Short, dark and sweet January 21, 2012

    Feed is my introduction to Jerry W. McKinney. It is well met.

    This short story is an enjoyable vampire tale that weaves a bit of its own mythology. The central character is not a shape-shifting supernatural being, rather, he is a man who is unwittingly turned and must fend for himself and his new condition. I absolutely enjoyed the ending.

    The story reads fast, perhaps an hour at most. The editing is fairly clean and only a few hiccups cause the ride to shimmy before returning to the rail. My only "complaint" was the brief monologue about how "we" (normal folks) can waste our lives on pointless endeavors. Let the symbolism of the story carry the message, no need to hit the reader with the underlying story theme.

    I enjoyed Feed, and will certainly be reading more of Mr. McKinney.

    What starts off as an interesting and well written vampire story quickly turns into something more. Without giving away anything, all I can say is the mind of Jerry W McKinney is a wonderfully frightful place.

    Wow. What a fabulous story. A mysterious girl makes a weekly trip to the local butcher shop. A curious man wants to know why and the secrets begin to unfold. Jerry McKinney has a way with words and imagery that makes you want to be a part of his dark and twisted mind. I am impressed. Beautifully written

    Touching, yet horrifying February 12, 2012

    I have read a few stories by this author, so I was expecting to like it. I was overwhelmed though, by how much I actually did like it. Even though it is a short story, I was gripped from the beginning, and riveted to the end. What an excellent and original take on the zombie genre. When you think that it is possible that everything has "been done", a story like this is like a breath of fresh air. I would happily give this more than five stars if it was possible

    I love zombie stories, so when I saw this one I had to read it, even though I've read some pretty boring/cliche' zombie stories lately. Luckily, this wasn't one of them. While the story might not be earth-shatteringly different plot-wise from other zombie stories, it does have a unique flavor to it, and the writing itself is superb. I look forward to reading more from this author in the near future.
