During the Summer of Zombies 2015 Blog Tour, I won a copy of Humanity's Hope: Camp H by Greg P. Ferrell. Cool, I thought. Free zombies.

Well, here's what I found. A terrific story buried under the worst writing I've read in the three years I've been reviewing horror books. Actually I'm used to finding the occasional error in most of what I get to read since I'm often reading uncorrected proofs. Unfortunately, this book was released in October of 2014 and the author provided me a copy through Amazon in June of 2015.

Although I have nothing against self-publishing, this turned out to be a time where a lack of a good editor and proofreading caused me to not enjoy the book as much as I could have. Here's a small sample of the kind of writing that drove me to distraction...

"Eva eyes Tomas and, for the first time in a long time, she said nothing as she sat down to started the planning for their mission. Tomas got the hint and dove into the planning with her."

My biggest issues were the ongoing mixing of past and present tense, often in the same sentence, mixing of then and than, and frequently redundant passages. It's a shame, too because the story was very original for zombie fare and there were several really nice twists to set up book two.

Even with all the mistakes, I enjoyed this enough to pick up book two when I have time. I just hope that it will have a better editor and has been proofread before I get around to it.

Humanity's Hope: Camp H is available now in both paperback and Kindle formats through Amazon.com and can be read for FREE if you subscribe to KindleUnlimited. ( )
