Dead Boy Number One

Hey Intrepid Readers,

It's almost Christmas and what goes better with Christmas, the snow and the kissing under the holly than zombies...  Zombies?  Yes, zombies.  I can’t imagine kissing a zombie and liking it, but when the call for ZOMBIALITY (Library of the Living Dead) came to my attention, I felt the urge to at least consider the subject.  Perhaps, given the above introduction, it won’t be a surprise that I chose to make my submission more light-hearted than just dead flesh gore…although, don’t get me wrong, there are just some things about a zombie that you really shouldn’t change.

    I had a bit of fun with my contribution to ZOMBIALITY in my submission, Dead Boy Number One (based on a true dead story). I decided to make my zombies a little less brain dead, a little more living dead; sure there's decay, but with refrigeration and preservatives, there's a lot more to death than zombie mayhem, but as my main character--the self styled and titular Dead Boy Number One--discovers, sometimes getting past expectation is a lot harder than simply beating death and running away to join the zombie theatre...

ZOMBIALITY (A queer bent on the undead.)
    Zombies don't care who you love...they want to eat us all. 
This book contains 28 stories with a perspective on zombies never quite imagined before. These stories reflect a variety of queered lives and experiences and explor the depths of what a zombie is. From the traditional to the fantastical, these stories are sure to entertain all of humankind.
