I've been saving this as the capstone to my promotional blog tour for Selfies from the End of the World, and I am super excited to finally hit post on it. Laura Davy is one of my favorite writers in the world, and she's working on becoming one of yours, too. And she will be. Just trust me. I reached out to her to help with a guest post, and she graciously agreed. Her part is below.
I’m Laura Davy, your blogger for the day. Don’t worry, this isn’t a hostile take-over (yet), I was invited to write a review on Garrett’s short story “The Adventures of Zombiegirl,” which was published in Selfies from the End of the World: Historical Accounts of the Apocalypse.
Garrett isn’t just my friend, he’s my writing friend. We exchange stories and critiques, and we get into nitty-gritty literary debates that only writers care about. (I don’t care what anyone says, I will defend the Oxford comma to the death or until I get bored.) [Garrett here in the bracket just to say: Hey, I'm on good terms with the ol' Oxford comma, but in my house we call it the serial comma.] Since we exchange stories I actually had the pleasure to read “The Adventures of Zombiegirl” in its previous drafts and I even provided some notes on the story. So what do I think about the final and official version of this scifi zombie tale? In short, it’s awesome.
Jump the cut for the full review. Spoilers ahead.
