The Boy On The Bridge
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle
Written by M.R. Carey
Orbit Books
Release Date: May 2nd, 2017

The world has gone to pot. The Cordyceps fungus, a “zombie” affliction previously natural to ants, has turned the world into a dead one. Humans are now infected, and transmit the disease through saliva (with teeth), almost instantly turning victim into predator. A team of scientists and soldiers travel through England towards Scotland on the Rosalind Franklin aka “Rosie,” collecting samples to come up with something to stop or slow this epidemic. The story centers around scientist Dr. Samirah Khan and her “adopted” son, Stephen. Khan is pregnant, a scary prospect under these new circumstances. And the rotten cherry on this garbage cake is a horde of strange children who feed like hungries, but are sentient.

The Boy On The Bridge by M.R. Carey sets us back right in the middle of the unforgiving “hungry” world Carey created with The Girl With All The Gifts.

Zombies are one of the defining characters in horror, alongside vampires, werewolves, and Frankenstein monsters. In the post-The Walking Dead world, writers and filmmakers have tried with various levels of success to create something new and original from a sub genre that can often produce B-level dreck. My favorite film of 2016 was South Korean zombie flick Train to Busan. Just when I thought I had seen it all from zombies, I watched The Girl With All the Gifts, just released in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The film is written by Mike (M.R.) Carey who also penned the novel in 2014.
