Zen of the Dead Available from Popcorn Press

Each year, on October 1, we host an open call for horror-themed poems and stories.  By October 31, we have a finished document published in ebook form, with a print version close on its heels.

This book is the result of that creative marathon.  Inside are works from writers new and old, pros and newcomers alike.  Some fewZenOfTheDead are previously published pieces deserving new readership; the majority have never before seen the light of day.

Our goal each year is simple: to encourage a wider audience for poetry and short fiction.  Halloween provides a perfect opportunity.

So came the announcement in the wee hours of this morning from Editor Lester Smith, that ZEN OF THE DEAD (see October 28) is now available from Popcorn Press.  My connivance in this year’s costume parade is “La Valise,” the tale of a New Orleans lady with a biting habit who, newly returned from a visit to her ancestral France, is victim of a mix-up of suitcases at Louis Armstrong Airport.
