Fiction Friday: Zombie Gigolo

For this edition of Fiction Friday, I bring you Issue #7 of Strange Aeons magazine. Inside their Autumn 2011 issue, you’ll find my short story “Zombie Gigolo,” which appeared in last year’s release of the zombie anthology The Living Dead 2.

Originally written for and performed at the Gross Out Contest at the 2008 World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City, “Zombie Gigolo” takes some of the more disgusting elements from Breathers and ratchets them up a few notches while exploring that age old question:

Is it necrophilia if you’re both dead?

“Zombie Gigolo” took third place in the Gross Out Contest and earned me the coveted gummi haggis prize, which I seem to have misplaced.

  3. I just recently read Zombie Gigolo again for the 3rd time and felt the need to let the author know that it is one of the best zombie shorts ever. I could not stop laughing from beginning to end. And being a zombie story traditionalist, (they gotta shamble, moan and eat imo), the unique take Mr. Browne offered made me see that not all changes are bad and I need to give non traditional zombie stories a fair shake. In the future I will.

    Oh and I read that story in Living Dead 2 edited by John J. Adams for the record. I will also now be looking for more from Mr. Browne.

  4. Thanks for the comment, John. Hope you enjoy my other fiction. And glad I could help you to open the door to non-traditional zombies.
