Tiny Window

“Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.” - Neil Gaiman.

Battle 2

  Once in a while, a blogger will strike up a friendship when getting a piece together. I’m lucky to have had this happen many times over & have met some truly wonderful members of this genre that are now firm friends. Lawrence Santoro was one of those friends.

I logged onto FaceBook & spotted a status by my good friend & colleague Joe Mynhardt. He posted about Lawrence’s passing…this was the…

When Apace warrior Geronimo was captured by the U.S. Army it was said he created a powerful potion called the White Man’s Curse, something that may have the power to resurrect the dead.

What an adventure being a zombie in the old west must have been, riding across the barren landscape on my undead steed (sure he can’t move very fast but I never have to feed him), devouring unlucky pioneers as…
