For this Halloween I've unearthed two zombie-themed short stories and I'm publishing them as an e-book titled Undead. One of these stories, A Case Study of the Side Effects of Nauseamin and their Possible Treatment, was published over a year ago in Mad Scientist Journal. The other one, The Girl Next Door, was written over 5 years ago but never published. It was one of those stories written on a dare. I was discussing story ideas with one of my friends and she said "I'm even willing to read a story about a geeky vampire, as long as it's explained why he's a geek in a way that makes sense." It was meant to be an example of what story not to write, but I loved the idea of a geeky vampire, so I started writing the story as a character piece, with an uncharacteristic vampire and an equally uncharacteristic zombie. It's gone through several revisions since then, but most of the dialogues date back to the first version and hold a sense of humor that I seem to have lost in later years.

To celebrate the launch of Undead and to give you something fun to read for Halloween, I'm offering you a discount coupon for Smashwords. From now until November 10th, use the code VC99Y when buying Undead from Smashwords to get it for free. I'll naturally be grateful for any reviews of the book.

I hope you enjoy my stories and have fun this Halloween.
