Fantasy Humor Satire zombies sword and sorcery walking dead magic Monsters zombie funny

We all know zombies bite. Maybe the way to fight them is to bite back. When I was invited to submit to CHICKS AND BALANCES, the final CHICKS IN CHAINMAIL anthology, I realized I had no ideas for a story. Nothing. Bupkis. So I combed back through my files and thought it might be nice to find out what Dagmar and Ramdane have been up to. The deadline was only a few days away, so I wrote in a great hurry. Later I discovered the publisher had chosen "Bite Me" for the cover!

Satire Science Fiction cyberpunk documentary punk advertising

Published in 2012, this is a cyberpunk satire about guerilla documentary-making, advertising, and data security. I have republished it here because I saw this article today, which makes it look as though the central conceit of the story might soon be a reality: https://futurism.com/startrocket-giant-ads-night-sky-cubesats Sigh.
