What are the Mike Beem Chronicles? The Mike Beem Chronicles are a series of short stories that I wrote involving a character called Mike Beem. These stories don’t have to be read in order. I wrote each of them to be their own story. They have an original beginning and a true end. You should be fine reading the current one you are thinking about buying, and you should be able to enjoy it as if it was its own separate entity.
Now, if you have to read them in order (I know I would), here is the best way to do it.

A Zombie Christmas 2

A Zombie Thanksgiving
A Zombie New Year’s Eve
“Just a second longer,” Mike replied, turning from Fred to face Jim. “Are you still leaving?”
Jim looked out at the parking lot, back to Mike and Fred. He thought of the note he had read back at Mike’s place. That note gave him the courage he needed. “I guess it’s like dancing with an electric chair. You’re never ready, but sometimes you have no choice,” Jim replied, gripping his gun a bit tighter, gearing himself up to go just like Fred.
Mike patted Jim on the shoulder. “Glad you’re back on board. Three is always better than two.”
“So, are we going or are we going to sit here and have a tea party? My toes are cold, my knees are numb, and I’m so hopped up on adrenaline I think I might burst out of my clothes,” Fred replied, eyes big and alive like a junky on a high.
“Okay, we’re going now, follow my lead. And remember, we want these zombies to pack in tight around us so we can get as many as we possibly can at one time. No matter how tight they swarm, no one shoots until I say so. Got that?”
Mike looked at Jim.
Mike looked at Fred.
He gave Mike the thumbs up without looking at him, eyes still focused on the parking lot and the shuffling zombies.
“Let’s do it then. Good luck guys and be safe,” Mike replied, and stepped out of his hiding spot, saying a silent prayer to himself as he did it.
Fred and Jim followed closely behind.
The zombies shuffled about. They were just doing their zombie thing, unaware of the danger lurking nearby.
Mike, Fred, and Jim inched closer to the mall, eyes alive, and guns ready to fire.
The zombies noticed them and began to shuffle in their direction.
The men held their pace – slow and steady, as the zombies started to horde together.
A soft snow was falling.
The ground was turning white.
