A couple years back I wrote a zombie story called “Better Places”. Said zombie story appeared in Pulp Modern #4, which is currently selling for $999.11 on Amazon, so clearly it’s a really, really great story for that kind of dolla dolla bills.
Nevertheless, while you might not be able to get your hands on the obscurity that is a back-issue of an obscure pulp lit mag, you can now get your hands on “Better Places” in Choose Wisely, an anthology of stories written by women who Upper Rubber Boot Books claims are “Up to No Good”.
Getting this reprint was kind of huge for me, because it meant that my story would be included alongside a tale penned by none other than Joyce Carol Oates. As in, one of my favourite literary dames, Joyce Carol Oates. As in, the author of that story you probably had to study in college, “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?”. Yeah, that Joyce Carol Oates.
So anyway, check out my story, along with others by Jessica McHugh, Emily Slaney, xTx, Amelia Gray and Lindsay Hunter and more in Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up to No Good:
