Product Description

Product Description

On the road to Fargo, North Dakota, Matt Cahill is trapped in a hellacious blizzard on a frozen, traffic-choked interstate. He's stalked by an escaped murderer and the guards who were transporting him--all of them seemingly possessed by a mutant virus that spreads quickly among the others trapped in their cars, turning everyone into crazed zombies. Matt struggles with a small band of survivors to find the source of the horrific plague before it claims them all. The odds are against any of them surviving the night....and that includes Mr. Dark.

HASH(0xa8b9aac8) out of 5 stars Colder than Hell eh? Feb. 9 2013
By RemRonVancouverBC - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have become totally sucked into The Dead Man series and I am not even close to being a horror fan. Maybe it is because they have brought in so many good writers, most of them not from the horror genre and this has really opened it up for fans of fast food entertainment literature like myself. What the hell, I have cleaned up my diet and eating habits, why not reward myself with some cholesterol for the mind? Anthony Neil Smith never has any difficulty filling that menu. His style is more internal than the other writers in the series, but once you catch onto his unique rhythm you settle right into the dish he is serving. And like the last few writers ahead of him he has been following the beat of earlier works and adding his stock to the general mythology of the piece. The result was a wild hell bound ride through a phalanx of steamy zombies in the snowbound wastes of Fargoland. Only one thing missing, where were the funny Canadian-like accents that made Fargo so popular up here north of the border? I mean Frances McDormand was kind of like the Swedish Chef for us.

HASH(0xa8b9ad08) out of 5 stars Matt Cahill ans Snow Don't Mix Feb. 3 2013
By Randy Johnson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Matt Cahill finds himself caught in a blizzard and he hates it. Considering his history, caught in an avalanche and dead for three months, only to come back to life, understandable. He's also being hunted by a convicted murderer and the guards accompanying him, all amid a group of stunned motorists stranded in the sudden blizzard. Everyone is stumbling around zombie-like, smiles on their faces, and saying, "I need you!"

Whatever is going on has Mr. Dark worried. he makes a brief appearance and Matt easily sees a worried look on his face. And anything that worried Mr. Dark must be okay, despite what it seemed to be doing to the people. It was left up to Matt to discover what it was.

Author Anthony Neil Smith has brought his own unique look to the newest chapter in this series.

HASH(0xa8b9afcc) out of 5 stars When It Freezes Over... Feb. 6 2013

Anthony Neil Smith is a Great Writer in his own right (Check out some of his Novels!) And does an Outstanding job writing this episode of The Dead Man Series!
Matt is stranded in a Blizzard (Which definitely makes him uncomfortable, considering his past!) with many other people and something strange is afoot...And, as a Bonus it's something that makes Mr. Dark nervous, maybe even scared!
The Axe sees some action, of course, but this book goes much deeper than that...There's the Usual Rotting Humans, along with a Different kind of Virus (Evil!).
Mr. Smith also relates This Episode to Other Books in the Series!
An Excellent Addition to the Series!
Highly Recommended!
Great Job, Mr. Smith!

HASH(0xb7e5a528) out of 5 stars All The Fine Young Zombies Dec 24 2013

Anthony Neil Smith adds a chapter to the Dead Man series with the hero, Matt Cahill, confronting a horde of zombies on the frozen North Dakota. The series, which was launched last year by Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin, concerns the adventures of a man reborn to fight a supernatural evil known as Mr. Dark. He can see those corrupted by Dark as disfigured rotting corpses, even if no other person can. The authors have been able to get numerous cutting-edge writers to contribute monthly episodes. In essence, this is a bold attempt to use electronic media to relaunch the glory days of the horror pulps.

Smith was initially adverse to writing the episode, as he felt his forte was crime fiction. But he relented and produced a chilling selection for the series. I should read the other books in this series, they sound promising. This one is short, coming in at 99 pages.

Smith gets right down to business with page one of the novelette. The first few chapters introduce the main characters who are trapped on the highway. There’s a prison van transporting a psycho killer, an unwed mother trying to make a job interview, a van with aspiring rock musicians, and a middle class family with issues. Too many authors would go for the cheap effect, making them disposable victims. But Smith invests each one of them with their own chapter, giving the characters depth.

Complicating the snow storm is the release of a virus which turns people into steaming, giggly zombies. They constantly need other people and the plague starts to spread down a column of cars and vehicles trapped in a blizzard on the interstate. Only Cahill, a man who was dead and reborn isn’t affected by the germ. It’s up to him to stop the spread of the disease with his trusty ax.

As is his trademark, Smith has a way to squeeze humor out of the worst situations: Such as the reflections of a convicted killer on his court trial after the tape of him using a chainsaw has just been shown:

“The day they played that in court, seven jurors threw up. The others looked pale. George just shrugged at them. What’re ya gonna do?
Insanity defense? Even temporary? George wouldn’t hear of it. It didn’t feel right. No, he was going to take it head-on. Yeah, that’s me on the tape. Yeah, I cut them up pretty damn good. Yeah, I’m pleading not guilty.”

Since Colder than Hell is the first book I’ve read in the series, I have no idea how it compares to the others. The creators of the series had designed it so any one novel could be read as a stand-alone. I may check out some of the other ones in the future.
