Best New Zombie Tales vol 2I was delighted to receive a box full of books this morning! I ordered a dozen copies of Best Zombie Tales vol 2 a while back, and they’ve finally arrived! They contain a lot of terrific zombie stories, and my own contribution, The Truth About Brains – about a 14 year old girl whose brother gets turned into a zombie, and she’s trying to fix him before mum finds out!

There are a couple of ways to get your hands on these fine zombie tales –

The Truth About Brains

Best New Zombie Tales vol 2My short zombie story, The Truth About Brains, is now available!! It was published in the Canadian zombie anthology, Best New Zombie Tales (volume 2), edited by James Roy Daley.

This is the story that begins:

“My little brother Dylan is dead, but that doesn’t stop him from being a pest. He still follows me everywhere, and Mum still makes me take him with me when I go to the shops.  It wouldn’t be so bad, except he’s always trying to bite people. He tried to bite me the first few days, but I hit him across the nose with a rolled up newspaper and he gave it up.”

Those of you who came to my reading of the story at Continuum 5 know what the truth about brains really is, but the rest of you can find out by picking up the anthology as a paperback or a Kindle book from
