Zombies for a Cure: Stories, Poems to Aid Cancer Research Received
With its strange black cover, the feel of which is a bit reminiscent of soft dry skin, ZOMBIES FOR A CURE (see also October 11) arrived in my mailbox yesterday afternoon. Such was the day that I didn’t really get to the mail until after dark, but then there is an appropriateness to that when what I will find is a book of stories and poems about those who are dead but still move about. However, ZOMBIES FOR A CURE is more than just that; profits made from sales are slated to be donated for cancer research.
But that isn’t all. Backstories from some of the writers in ZOMBIES FOR A CURE (including moi), the origins of the tales and poems appear on Gregory L. Norris’s blog, GREGORY L. NORRIS, WRITER, for Tuesday November 8, to be found by pressing here. My own contribution is a poem, “Should Zombies Really Crawl from Their Graves,” and, while not profound, the reason why I wrote the poem in the first place might be of mild interest (after which it had been submitted to PAPER CROW, but Editor Angela Charmaine Craig thought it a better fit for the anthology and, when she asked me, I agreed). Or then again maybe not.
Nevertheless, the book itself is of interest and, judging from just glancing through, worth getting regardless of where the money goes. More information on ZOMBIES FOR A CURE can be obtained by pressing here.
