The website for The Living Dead 2 is live! There are a ton of goodies on the site, including early reviews and a series of author interviews. I have a story in this one, and it’s one of eight stories available on the site as a preview. “And the Next, and the Next” takes place on Coney Island, home of the Warriors and the Wonder Wheel, and a place about which it’s almost impossible not to have feelings of some kind. (Unless you’re a zombie, I guess – and even… Read more »
