How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea by Mira Grant

For everyone who ever wondered how conservation efforts would work post zombie apocalypse, this is the story for you. I will admit, it the thought had never occurred to me, but after reading How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea I cannot get the idea out of my head.

The real hook to the Newsflesh books are that the world did not stop when the zombie apocalypse happened. We worked with it, we adapted. Some places adapted in different ways. Ms. Grant takes this novella to look at Australia and how it would have worked with a driving need to preserve a unique ecosystem with an equally pressing need to survive.

Thus enters the rabbit proof fence- re-purposed as the worlds biggest zombie/livestock corral.

I will now be slipping zombie kangaroos to the top of the list of most terrifying things that could jump me in a dark field. Thanks, Mira. I had never considered a zombie kangaroo before, but now that I have…the power in those legs…I think I find them much more terrifying than human zombies.

How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea is the most recent in a series of novellas set in the Newsflesh world, and takes place after the events of Blackout, the third book in the Newsflesh trilogy, and is not new-reader friendly as a result. If you are interested in the series, grab a copy of Feed. Just…don’t read before bed. You will never stop reading long enough to make it to the going to sleep part.
