Along with the thigh-high PVC boots, Lucy was also wearing a long-sleeved leather body suit and a pair of PVC goggles. Anna smirked; she looked like the lovechild of the steampunk genre and a member of Marilyn Manson.
“Well what was I meant to do? He came at me, all chompy and toothy so I stamped in his eye.” Lucy shrugged, moving to examine a shelf crowded with accessories.
“No, not Colin. I wouldn’t have blamed you for stamping in that pervert’s eye even if he wasn’t one of them.” Anna replied, rolling her eyes as Lucy found, and snapped on, a pair of leather gloves.
“He was my best customer.” Lucy grumbled.
“I mean the outfit.” Anna explained, shaking her head. “I realise you run a sex shop whilst moonlighting as a dominatrix, but do you really have to dress like that now? We’re in the middle of an apocalypse; you don’t need your uniform.”
“It’s an underwear shop! And this outfit is for practicality. It’s nearly impossible to chew through this stuff. I’ll have the last laugh when your jeans are in tatters and your legs have been eaten off, and there’s barely a scratch on me.” Lucy smiled, grabbing a bullwhip from the wall and coiling it around her forearm.

Praise for the Book
"Love zombie short stories? This collection is a must! Great, compelling, addictive, gross, and graphic. In a world that loves all things zombie with the likes of 'The Walking Dead' and an endless array of movies and books exploring the sub-genre in horror, what more is there to say? Read this frightening collection and find out! A deliciously gory feast for all zombie/horror lovers seeking something new and fresh, bringing a new lease of life to the world of crazed cannibals." ~ Thomas
"This is a 125 star book, 5 star for each story & poem, oh! and the illustrations, they are so beautiful!! [...] Excellent written, really ingenious and weirdly funny. The best thing is that this gem only costs 1.99!! don't hesitate, grab your copy!!! You are not going to regret it." ~ Julia
"So many different contributions, from short stories, to flash fiction, to poetry. And there are some great illustrations sprinkled throughout these stories. It made the reading even more fun. I had some I enjoyed more than others but all in all a very solid collection." ~ laurathomas61
"This is a great compilation of short zombie stories, by several different authors. I am a serious fan of the genre and it takes a lot to impress me and this book did. I love the way the stories flowed and the characters were lively. I totally enjoyed this book and hope these authors get together and write another, if they do I will definitely be reading that." ~ Mindyg123
