It's a collection of 38 five hundred word zombie flashes by various authors, including Nancy Kilpatrick, Michael Laimo, Nate Southard, Jeff Strand, Tim Waggoner. (and me, and Womble)

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1897217811/themaniworlof-20

Thought I'd better do my bit to promote the thing. After all, I'm looking forward to seeing my contributer's copy, and they've already paid me for my story, so it only seems fair to put the word out. smiley

Thanks for the congrats smiley  For somebody who rarely sends anything out, this is quite new territory for me. I'm really looking forward to getting my contributor's copy afro

BTW, they've made a trailer for it:

Good work, guys. My submission, "The Maze" made it through to the final round but was ultimately cut. Fortunately, the same story was picked up for The Black Whole anthology, due out in December.

Good dialogue with your Carson character, Ed. I wanted to read Wombles story but I realized I don't know his real name.

Thanks - glad you liked it. Shame we didn't have more words to play with - I much preferred the original version, which was 100 words longer.

Womble's name is Paul Freeman. I can't remember the name of his story, though scratch It's probably in the Bits of the Dead forum section somewhere.

I still haven't received my contributor's copy yet, but you're the third person I know who has a copy already. I guess Amazon must be better at delivering than the combined efforts of the Canadian and British postal services smiley

I've been off the radar a bit - new job and stuff.

Yes, Elay, I'm Paul A. Freeman, and my story's 'Hunger'.

Hope you like it.

Hey Womble,

Enjoyed your short. Liked the bit of misdirection there. I thought the wife was going in for the mercy kill.
