…who I met while in New York has, aside from having one of the coolest names I’ve ever heard, a short story in the just-released zombie anthology, Zombiesque.
The theme of this anthology is stories from the viewpoint of zombies, rather than just being about them. Here’s the blurb:
From a tropical resort where visitors can become temporary zombies, to a newly-made zombie determined to protect those he loves, to a cheerleader who won’t let death kick her off the team, to a zombie seeking revenge for the ancestors who died on an African slave ship — Zombiesque invites readers to take a walk on the undead side in these tales from a zombie’s point of view.
He’s already received a very nice review by Heather over at Errant Dreams on his story, “The Confession”:
Laszlo Xalieri’s “The Confession” is another of my favorite tales in this book. It’s a surreal and horrifying take on how a man might rise from the dead… or is it? As a zombie relates his tale to a man who chronicles it for him, details start to emerge that paint a picture perhaps at odds with the zombie’s tale.
But wait! There’s more!
Laszlo has also archived This One Time, a fantastic ongoing collection of cataclysmic moments in people’s lives that when viewed as a group reveal a much larger story.
I’ve only read maybe half of the over thirty (!) This One Time stories, myself. They’re so good, I like to space them out a bit and read one story every couple of days or so, savoring each heartbreaking syllable.
So there you go. All you people stuck at home because of Snowmageddon 2011, you now have something to do today.
