Reprint in The Misbehaving Dead - The World Doesn't End, Even When it Should

One of my absolutely favourite things about selling to anthologies is getting the contributor's copy -- and I'm loving this one!

The Misbehaving Dead from A Murder of Storytellers features a feast of marvellous zombie stories, including my 'The World Doesn't End, Even When it Should', in which zombies are a commodity to be used, rather than a monster to be feared.

The World Doesn't End, Even When it Should - Horror - 2,460 words

Old McKay makes such a fuss over sick time that everyone always crawls into the office no matter what’s wrong with them. And then, what with the dodgy air con recycling all the germs, everyone else immediately goes down with it.

 Today, the place looks like a ghost town. Even McKay himself hasn’t shown up, and if that isn’t a sign of the apocalypse Tom doesn’t know what is.
