On "Diary of the Living Dead or: Are You There God? It's Me. Also, a Bunch of Zombies" by Jake Swearingen (1758 words) *****

This is "literary fiction" plucked from the corpses of bad horror movies. I suppose I could wax on about deeper meanings and find some kind of significance to everything that is happening, but I'm finished with grad school and so just happy to wallow in its brilliance on a purely superficial level. This is piece is laugh-out-loud funny, and that's reason enough for me to highlight it here. Imagine Sartre in a zombie movie; imagine him writing a diary about it. You get the idea. Now read the story.
