Spotted in the wild: My short story “The Skull-Faced Boy” in the zombie anthology The Living Dead, edited by John Joseph Adams. At Borders on University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto.
When I bought a copy, the cashier actually exclaimed “Awesome book!,” in a way that suggested to me that he recognized the book and had possibly even read it. Or maybe he just says that to every customer, to make them feel good about their purchase, who knows?
The Living Dead also just got a mention on the blog of geek icon Wil Wheaton. It’s weird and kind of cool to think that Wil Wheaton might possibly read my story.
