A personal message from the author:

I love zombie novels, but I find that a lot of the stories are on the pulpy side–lacking in more serious themes and hastily written or edited. Worse Than Dying is my sincere effort to not only satisfy the reader's fascination with the flesh-eating undead, but also deliver a well-written tale with themes that can be found in any “serious” work of literature.

— Brett Van Valkenburg

After his father suffers a nervous breakdown, Noah Barnes is tasked with caring for his family in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. A dark novella about fight and family, as one survivor confronts untold loss and struggles with unimaginable choices.
