Hugo Awards: Best Novella (3rd contender)

Next under consideration is Mira Grant’s “Countdown.” It is available as an ebook, published by Orbit.

This is a standard zombie story. You know the plot.  Zombies arise, zombies attack, more zombies arise.

I am not trying to insult the writer; I suppose it’s as well written as a zombie story can be. But a place on the prize ballot?
