    Dear Bryce

    Your energy and organisation are inspiring – as a newbie to CS I appreciate all the assistance you give other writers.

    Thank you

  2. Fiona, November 6, 2009:

    Great website and thanks for inspiring a fellow author!

    Oasis was amazing, I stumbled on it a week or so ago and could not stop reading. This was a great read and probably one of the best online serial novels I have read.

  4. Horror Reviews, March 13, 2010:

    I have read a few things about this, I will read this and write a short review on my website :)

    Well, it seems that this book has the same plot for the movie Resident Eveil where a virus has infected the area and the only way to prevent this from spreading in the whole world is to erase the state (town or any) from the map but doing some nuclear (or any device that can be use to destroy the virus, people who are infected and to destroy that area). If this is really a good boo, someone will put this into mivie, and instead of reading the book, I’ll just wait for that movie. Thanks

  6. Francis, September 28, 2010:

    Wow, another wonderful novel to read. Thanks for the effort and for sharing.

  7. MG, November 28, 2010:

    Great read. Will be asking my friends and relatives to check this novel out. Keep it up!

  8. Pete, November 30, 2010:

    Very cool how you’re publishing online. I like the serialized way of doing it, with reader comments. Fits with the whole Web 2.0 way of doing things and brings the format of the novel into the 21st Century.

  9. mari, October 3, 2011:

    This is very inspirational for me. For a long time I too have wished to publish my novel. But the thought of people reading it scares me lol. Good on you.

    this book went so far into my imagination that it felt real, the characters the setting to the zombies!!! this really sets a precedent to zombie works after the walking dead… work of a master….

  11. Lam, May 2, 2012:

    No sequel?

  12. Bryce Beattie, May 2, 2012:

    I’m two chapters and some editing away from finishing the sequel.
