Just had my zombie story, Home Is Where The Heart Is, accepted for inclusion in LOTLD's antho 'Through The Eyes of the Undead'!

It follows a man as he heads across the English countryside in a desperate bid to reach his wife...but who's the zombie? Him or his missus? OR BOTH?! You'll have to read it to find out!

I've set it in 1986, as a 'spiritual sequel' to my short piece Tennyson's Penultimate Stand (it's set in the same universe)...which itself inspired me to start on a previously mentioned zombie novel. That novel is called (tentatively) Bricksville, and is set in the titular town in the 24 hours leading up to the end of the world. I've done 20ish thousand words so far, and am going to use this year's NaNoWriMo to try and finish it.

Although Bricksville itself is a fictional town, I've based it on a place 'created' by Mark Twain, which in turn was based on a town that has now been washed away by the Arkansas river...but the idea is Bricksville always existed, but people don't realise it does because of the reason it was named....and that's a little confusing but it makes sense when it gets mentioned in the book ;)
I like to add literary references that are kind of 'blink and you'll miss them' :D

Oh, and it's going to include MUTANTS as well as zombies! I'm thinking "80's horror film" haha
