About

What I’m looking for: zombie stories set sometime pre-20th century. Use your imagination. Biblical, Roman, Medieval, or the Old West all come to mind, as well as non-Western settings like samurai fighting zombies, or hordes of zombies crashing into the Great Wall. Crossovers with other monsters usually don’t thrill me, though I’ll try to keep an open mind. Though I am partial to “Romero” zombies (i.e. slow and caused by plague), I am open to other speeds and other causes of the monstrosity.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
