We returned from a two-week vacation a few days ago and I've been slowly working my way through the epile of ejetsam that accumulates when you drop off the grid for even a few days. Lot's of gems this time, the highlight being a little email announcing The Zombist: Undead Western Tales was released for public consumption on 7/30! If you've got the resources and the inclination (heck, even if you don't), check out this 458-pg monster from Library of the Living Dead Press' main man, Dr. Pus (aka Dr. Mike West), and editor Bill Tucker. Story number 9 is mine. A little tale about "Hands."
