I figured this would be a good time (y’know, being Christmas, and all) to highlight a few anthologies that came out recently, and that feature stories of mine. I’ll do one a day, and we’ll begin with a l’il ZVR action.
ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS: DIPLOMACY. Edited by Jeff Conner. IDW Publishing.
“Zombies vs Robots goes international! It’s the Cold War in Hell as undead flesh clashes with uncaring metal. The zombie apocalypse is a true global conflagration, and ZVR: Diplomacy is at the frontlines with a collection of original stories either set in Russia or the UK. On all fronts rabid braineaters battle gleeful warbots, with a beleaguered (and dwindling) mankind caught in the middle.
“Featuring original stories by today’s leading perpetrators of zombie terror and robot rampage, namely Steven Lockley, Rio Youers, Robert Hood, Gary McMahon, Ekaterina Sedia, Simon Clark, Dale Bailey, and Simon Kurt Unsworth, ZVR: Diplomacy is a unique new chapter in the ongoing Zombie vs Robots prose program, and is fully illustrated by horror-master Michael Dubisch.”
So yeah … I had a lot of fun with this. Being a fan of the comic, I jumped at the opportunity to write a story set in the ZVR universe. My contribution is called “For King and Country” – a kind of alternate take on World War II … but with zombies and robots. Of course.
Available everywhere, but here are the Amazon links.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another anthology!
