Hooray!

THREE QUESTIONS: Ty Schwamberger

Ladies and gentlemen, bogarts and ghouls (yes, I went there), today I've had the marvelous opportunity to host THREE QUESTIONS with The Zombie Feed's Editor-in-Chief Ty Schwamberger.

THREE QUESTIONS: Brandon Alspaugh

Brandon Alspaugh's story in The Zombie Feed Vol. 1 is a multi-layered, and multi-era, examination of the undead and undeadness. You won't find zombies eating brains in "The Sickness Unto Death", but you will find letters, online discussions, Confederate soldiers, ancient death myths, faith-frightened monks, and the story of a modern soldier returning home after… Continue reading THREE QUESTIONS: Brandon Alspaugh

THREE QUESTIONS: Monica Valentinelli

Monica Valentinelli's contribution to The Zombie Feed Vol. 1 is a visceral, irreverent,  stream-of-consciousness narrative from the perspective of troubled Officer Mike Francis, a badge-carrying member of civilized society's last-stand response to a world gone mad. It's not the zombies Office Mike worries about--with a little fire, he can manage them--it's all the other nutcases… Continue reading THREE QUESTIONS: Monica Valentinelli

THREE QUESTIONS: Daniel I. Russell

Unlike some of the other stories in The Zombie Feed Anthology which ramp up the action with shotguns and showdowns, Daniel I. Russell's contribution is a quiet tour de force that is perhaps all the more horrifying because its focus is so poignantly centered in the realities of our daily lives. "Broken Bough" is not… Continue reading THREE QUESTIONS: Daniel I. Russell
