    Excellent News!

    Zombie story? I take it that’s ‘short’ story…
    It’s a damn shame that the talent you have writing Zombie novels is being wasted. You need to write more zombie NOVELS!!

    Michelle – thanks for the good words. See my response in the comments of the Noc Zombie entry. (Rather than me just re-typing it here).

    awesome! david wellington,brian keene, and max brooks all having short stories in one book. Its gonna be great. And to Michelle: its selfish for us to always want Mr. Keene to write Zombie novels or zombie stories. I mean the ones he have already written are awesome and classics and are reponsible for ressureccting the zombie genre(no pun intended) and yet people expect more zombie work from him. He can bust his balls for 6 months writing a crime fiction or some other type of novel and yet someone will complain because its not zombie related. Just a shame.

    Just read that particular anthology… The Wind Cries Mary is quite frankly a great zombie love story that kicks Twilights arse all over the shop! I really ejoyed it, short, pithy and the stand-out tale from the whole book for me.

    Proper Job as they say in the West Country!
