Zombie Anthologies Open for Submissions

Smell that? Yeah you probably don't want to. It's the smell of zombie.

Over at Living Dead Press, Anthony Giangregorio is putting together a zombie antho called (maybe) The Book of the Dead. He's only taking Romero style zombies (slow and steady), which I think is great. I love traditional zombies.

And at Library of the Living Dead Press, Dr. Pus is putting together a charity zombie antho called Night of the Giving Dead. All proceeds go towards First Book, a charity that tries to promote literacy by giving books to children with limited access to them.

And that's the zombie news of the day.

I am working on a story for Dr. Pus' antho. But I think it will be my last zombie one for a while. Of course I originally said I didn't have any zombie stories in me. And then I wrote "Sins of the Living..." Then I said I had maybe one more. Now I'm four zombie stories in. But I think after this one I'll be done for a while...

unless the zombie inspiration strikes again


  1. I don't know if I could write a 'good' zombie story. I am pretty sure I could right a dozen bad ones though. :)

  2. Ooooh. I've got a zombie story that has yet to find a home... poor, homeless zombies. So thanks for the info!

  3. No such thing as a bad zombie, especially those for charity!

  4. i agree, zombies are like pizza in the whole bad is still good sense.

    and yay carrie! i'm glad. zombies should never be w/o a home.

  5. I've never tried writing a "traditional" zombie story. I can't help but feel that I would bring nothing new to the field. Maybe I ought to try anyway.

  6. it's always worth a go. esp for charity :^)
