She had told […]

Some facts in life are so bizarre that it leaves one wondering about the fare of humanity. This is one of those moments.

Heels scuffing the hardwood of the foyer, the couple dashed through the open door and out into the frosty October wind, the pungent scent of their deodorized bodies lingering behind them—lilies, aftershave, and musk all rolled into a single funk. And Ellie Masterson, who’d seen this happen at least twice a day, simply pressed the clipboard to her chest, sighed, […]
Zombies have rights, don’t they? After all, they’re humans reanimated with a second-life because of God, mad science, or strange medicine.

I watched the world darken and smiled. It was a somber smile, one of the joys to come, yet with the knowledge that this was the world now. Dark; Dead; Hostile. A person in my profession should be overjoyed with this glorious turn of events. Truly, as it were, I was as depressed and devoid of life as any other […]
