Horror zombies Jay Lake memorial anthology ski bum zombies mount hood intelligently redesigned

Previously published in JAY LAKE: INTELLIGENTLY REDESIGNED (2008). A limited edition anthology edited by J.K. Richard, written by friends of Jay Lake for Jay after his first bout with colon cancer. One of my very few zombie stories, written during my hardcore ski bum days while teaching special education classes at Welches Middle School. Several of my students advised me on the appropriate jargon for the era. Ah, Jay. You left us far too soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

When a government agency develops a shape-shifter program and requires participants to play roles across genders and sexes, the participants discover both enlightening and deeply unsettling things about themselves and the program's agenda. (This story is ownvoices. And raw. There is a content warning for dysphoria and transphobia. There are also moments of self-discovery. It has my full heart.)
