Kurzbeschreibung

Many people know that the 1969 moon landing was faked, but are unaware of the actual circumstances. Find out how the U.S. faked the moon landing to avert the zombie apocalypse as the lives of a disgraced B-movie director, a bar owner, some drunks, an Army Ranger unit, a bunch of gangsters, an affluent but very dysfunctional family, and a few cops come together in One Undead Step.
One year after Romero shocked the world with Night of the Living Dead, a small city is rocked by grisly killings, the gory details of which are only known through whispered rumors. The government presence that makes the populace all the more nervous is unable to contain the impending threat that grows out of control on a hot, humid night in Mid-July. As the city’s residents fight for their lives, the Military rushes to make a film about two men landing a small spacecraft on the moon. Will their plan work? Find out as an evil man finds redemption, some soldiers choose between their mission and duty, a young couple finds forbidden love, an older couple reignites their passion, and a bartender gets stiffed for lots of drinks in
One Undead Step.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well done Ian. Solid addition to the genre! 16. April 2014
Von Chris Philbrook - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As an author known primarily for my work in the 'zombie genre' I'm pretty fussy with the stuff that falls into my front yard to read.

Ian McClellan killed it with One Undead Step. It's terrific.

It's set in the late 60's in the southwest in the midst of a terrible zombie outbreak. To buy them time and distract the country from the dilemma unfolding, the government decides to fake a moon landing.

It sounds crazy, is crazy, and is fun as hell. Great, pure, original Romero feel, with solid (dare I say tasteful) levels of gore, and a large cast of believable characters.

To be fair and open, I found a couple of typos, the Kindle file I read had two formatting glitches, and Ian name drops other authors in the field throughout the book, and those were the only complaints I can think if. If I could give the book 4.75 stars, I guess I would, but let's not be that fussy.

Here's the biggest compliment I can give this book: It feels like it's taking place in the 60s, in the Romero-era zombie style outbreak world, and reads cleanly as such. It's a great period-piece visit for the zombie genre, and I highly recommend it.

Great job Ian. Lots of fun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One small step for zombies, one huge mess for mankind....... 3. Februar 2015
Von Nathan Mercer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Will, owner of Will's Tavern, is about to have a change made to his bar menu. He wasn't really looking for a change, and even if he was, Will certainly didn't approve of the main ingredients that made up the majority of the new one-item menu for his new customers that were coming in hordes.

Normally, Will would have been thrilled with a huge crowd gathering at his bar. Especially without having to put on a "happy hour" to do so. But the new crowd goes wherever the new delicacy can be found - and that just happens to be live humans. Zombies are well known for eating and not ordering drinks - and hell - they would probably just try and shuffle off without paying the tab anyways. While it is bad business for your well paying regulars to be eaten by non-paying Zombies - paid in full tabs and no tips are the last thing that Will is currently concerned about.

Across the city, a mob boss is having issues of his own. Nicky "No Nickname" Fratelli is racking up a body count - and not one of them is even a good old family "hit". In fact - it is mostly his own goomba's and muscle that are winding up dead. But Nicky notices that they don't stay exactly "dead" for long. With just his most loyal bodyguard, Paulie Hammerhead - Nicky makes his way over to Will's Tavern for a nice cold one while he tries to wrap his brain around what the hell is going on.

Rounding out this team is a family with a klepto kid, a stuffy father, a wife that has eyes for about anything that moves, and a 15 year old daughter who is just trying like crazy to latch onto anyone who can get her as far away from her family as possible. Oh yeah, and a few bar patrons who decided not to be on the menu, but most of them are falling down drunks.

So, if you were in charge of the country and the Zombies decide to have a convention in a city in the middle of nowhere, what would you plan on doing? Well, you could send in the army and wipe out the Zombie horde. Or, you could do what comes naturally to politicians and start spinning, lying, and creating a diversion. How about a moon landing to distract everyone? The fact that there isn't anyone really in space to land on the moon poses just a small problem. That is until B-Movie director Mark Mathews is caught in a very compromising position and the army makes him a deal. Make a movie, quick - featuring us landing on the moon. It doesn't have to win any Academy Awards - it just has to be believable.

With all of these moving parts, one thing remains constant. Zombies must eat........

-----------------------------

OK - I am going to admit something that will probably make everyone gasp is shock. I can honestly say I have only watched two movies featuring zombies in my lifetime - "Abraham Lincoln Zombie Slayer" (just because it looked so horrible!!) and "World War Z". Not a single zombie book. So by no means am I an undead aficionado.

"One Undead Step" by Ian McClellan may have gotten me to turn a corner. McClellan had a great paced story, and I was really liking all of the characters - that is, until they got eaten. I was kind of surprised that there are no picky zombies when it comes to food - not one "I won't eat my broccoli" finicky eater exists among them.

McClellan also delighted me with a chapter written from the zombie's point of view. Again, I don't have much experience in this genre - but I thought it was brilliant. Short chapter, kind of focused on a single point - but apparently zombies are not great multi-taskers - so I guess I understand!

Anyways - you need to quit reading this blog post and download this book. I need to quit writing anyways and get myself some steak cooked very rare now.......
4.0 von 5 Sternen and each is paid back in kind according to their moral compass (jerks die horribly, heroes die heroically 5. Februar 2016
Von Stephen Kozeniewski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
SPOILERS!

McClellan starts off with a familiar premise, one that's been run into the ground in fact: a group of plucky survivors in an American urban center face down the zombie apocalypse with nothing to rely on but their wits, and each is paid back in kind according to their moral compass (jerks die horribly, heroes die heroically, and plucky kids survive.) If you've read more than one zombie book you've heard this story already.

As I read on, though, I realized that my familiarity with this premise was what McClellan was counting on, and possibly preying upon. As the book progresses, he slowly fills in some fascinating details that gradually turn the narrative on its ear. With clever flourishes like a gangster named Nicky "No-Nickname" (get it?), a rather perverse story of statutory rape that ends as it must, and always, always in the background a seemingly unrelated B-story about a director faking the moon landing, McClellan gradually draws us in to a tale that's not been told before.

ONE UNDEAD STEP is "Mad Men" meets "Night of the Living Dead." Where the latter was a product of the '60s played straight, the former was an attempt to re-create an era through its anxieties and foils, also played more-or-less straight. I admired how McClellan tries to do the same with ONE UNDEAD STEP. As with any historical drama, occasionally the satire was a little too on the nose, but I don't remember anything especially egregious along the lines of, "Look, we're smoking on a plane because people used to do that back then isn't that craaazy?" or "Wouldn't it be cool if someday we had phones we could carry around with us?" McClellan's depiction of the '60s was aware but nuanced, without ever resorting to easy targets.

For a long stretch of this book I was wondering why the moon landing plot was even there. It felt completely shoehorned in. By the end, though, I realized that this was by design, so that McClellan could smash us over the head with a Shyamalan-style twist. Believe me, by the end, the title and the focus on the moon landing and not just "Mad Men" style '60s shenanigans becomes fully deserved.

If you love the shambling dead but you've been waiting for someone to do something new with them, your wait is over. Grab a copy of ONE UNDEAD STEP now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One Undead Step 14. März 2014
Von Alex - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
By no means here am I maligning authors who have taken a more conventional approach. However, it is refreshing to find an author who has not followed the beaten path. Ian is geniunely funny. Normally authors of this sort of fiction resort to juvenile or tactless humor when they are not painting gorey pictures of gruesome decapitions. This is hysterial realism at its finest, but instead of, like Thomas Pynchon, showering the reader with irrelevant nonsense, barely believable scenes and unfunny jokes one is supposed to laugh at for their perceived intellectual value, Ian gives us a book one can savor on a beach with a fruity drink one would not, in any other setting, imbibe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One Undead Step Breathes New Life Into the Zombie Genre 25. Oktober 2014
Von Cedric Nye - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This author, Ian McClellan, has a talent for mixing brutality and satire. Interwoven into this Hellraiser-esque landscape of zombies, death (a LOT of death!), and mayhem is the theme of government conspiracy as it pertains to distracting the populace. I went into this book thinking that it would be intelligently written, but probably lack the action that I crave when I read; I could not have been more wrong!

The story starts off when the government decides to fake the Moon landing in order to distract the citizenry from the fact that the dead have risen and started eating the living. What follows is madness.

On my first reading of this book was in fits and starts due to a hectic schedule. I found myself uncomfortable with the characters, and I could not figure out why. The second time that I read One Undead Step, I knew why I was uncomfortable. McClellan has a talent for outlining the flaws in human-kind without making it a snide and obvious thing. His characters are so easy to relate to, and my discomfort was due to the fact that I became invested in the characters quickly, and saw my own flaws in stark terms.

I laughed out loud several times while reading One Undead Step due to the author's ability to wring humor out of madness.

I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to reading anything this author writes! 5 Stars!
