Pop bought me my first zomb when I was eighteen. She was a real bitch, wiry and evil, and she won me a few races before her left leg dropped off and she couldn’t race no more.
Imagine a future after the zombie apocalypse; after humanity has tried to eat itself, lived through the worst times, and come out the other side. A few zombies remain, penned up in safe zones, but most everything else is pretty much back to normal.

I wrote this short story back in 2012, and it was originally published in the Wandering Weeds anthology edited by Jalena Clegg and Frances Pauli.
