New novella: The Zombies of Hobbiton: A Martian Love Story by Edward W. Robertson

Here's an interesting new self-published work: The Zombies of Hobbiton: A Martian Love Story (March 2011) by Edward W. Robertson. A fast-paced horror-comedy novella of about 85 pages, it's currently available for free in a variety of electronic formats at Smashwords. Here's the description:

For the settlers of Mars, the underground tunnels of Hobbiton protect them from the airless cold. But when a zombie outbreak hits the city, the survivors have nowhere to run.

Doane and his friends take refuge in a domed park. Behind its sealed airlock, they're safe—but when Doane gets a call from his little brother telling him their parents haven't gotten home yet, he'll have to head back into the tunnels armed with nothing more than a flower stand and his kung fu. 

Born in the Northwest territory in the early 1980's, Edward W. Robertson has been writing science fiction and fantasy since he was 12 years old. His short fiction has appeared in The Aether Age: Helios anthology and will soon appear in Fantastique Unfettered and AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review. It can also be found in back issues of Reflection's Edge and M-Brane SF, among others. Robertson resides in South Bay outside of Los Angeles, where he sometimes critiques movies for the Tri-City Herald and practices kung fu on the beach.
