Hi all! It’s about time I did a little promo work for the upcoming ZOMBIE FEED ANTHOLOGY, which contains my short story “A Shepherd of the Valley” as well as sixteen other tales of zombie mayhem! :D
Here be the blurb: “Former Stoker Award-nominated editor Jason Sizemore compiles seventeen tasty, brainy morsels of zombie short fiction in The Zombie Feed: Volume 1.
Zombie fiction from many sub-genres are represented here: zombie apocalypse, zombie survival, zombies in human society, zombie hunters, and more. And the one thread interlocking these disparate groups–ZOMBIE MAYHEM! This action packed anthology takes a syringe full of contaminated adrenaline-laced undead and slams 1000 CCs directly into your chest cavity.
Fast paced, yet thoughtful, The Zombie Feed: Volume I will sate your appetite… at least temporarily.

“A Shepherd of the Valley” is about James Shepherd, one of a very few survivors in an apocalyptic Portland-ish setting, trying to establish some meaning in what’s left of his distorted life. Living in an abandoned air control tower near the Columbia River, Shepherd has made his peace with what the world has become by helping the zombified control their basest instincts in the hopes of saving their immortal souls–wherever they might be. But when a familiar-seeming young survivor crosses onto his tarmac, Shepherd must face the shadows of his past, and the realities of his future.
