Welcome to Worlds of Pain

Welcome to my new blog Worlds of Pain.  My name is Alexander Z Pain and I am a writer.  I've recently published two works of dystopian zombie apocalypse fiction: a novel Zombie Complex - The Battle for Chattahoochee Run and a short story "Dog Walk of the Apocalypse."

Zombie Complex is the story of an Atlanta-area apartment complex during the Zombie Apocalypse.  While many residents flee onto overcrowded highways when zombies come to town, many residents of Chattahoochee Run Apartments have no where to go.  The residents themselves come from different worlds.  The main characters, Jake and Karen, are American IT workers who thanks to outsourcing don't have the finances to get very far in an evacuation.  Most residents are Indian guest workers who have good American IT jobs, but have no "bug out" location available.  Can the Americans and the Indians work together to survive?

If you are a looking for a shorter read, check out my short story "Dog Walk of the Apocalypse."  Set in the same world as Zombie Complex on the eve of a full-fledged zombie apocalypse, "Dog Walk of the Apocalypse" focuses on a first encounter between our hero and his dog and a single zombie.  It also shows why civilization just might crumble faster than you might think.

I really hope you enjoy my work and, if you do, I would deeply appreciate any reviews you can leave on  As I move forward with the blog, I will provide some behind the scenes insight to my own work and I will touch upon some works of other indie authors that you might like.  Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy Worlds of Pain!
