Tales of the Zombie War has just published RICK, THE OTHER WHITE MEAT By yours truly on their website.
“The hunter sat with his back against the thick loblolly pine and felt his shoulders dig into the wet bark. The gnat hat, a screen of camouflage mesh, covered his face and neck, but still the little bastards made their way in and attacked his sweaty skin. As they took their blood meal, his only reaction was to blink and will them to hurry it up. He absolutely refused to move. Movement gave you away.
Through the brush behind, he heard the snap of a twig. He remained silent and still, controlling his blinking and the surge of adrenaline that he felt. The rustling in the brush told him that it was the game he was looking for. Time to call it in.
On the top of his left thigh, just above his knee he had sewn one side of a velcro patch. The other side of the patch was glued to the back of his phone and held it in place. His left hand barely extended its index finger and touched the ’send’button.
Taped to a tree about 40 feet in front of the hunter, a cell phone lit up and started playing the Benny Hill chase music on max volume. After about twenty seconds, the hunter pressed the ‘end’ button on the cell phone on his thigh and the ring tone stopped. The strains of Benny Hill ceased and the cell phone went quiet and dark against the tree.
He craned his ear for any sound that would confirm his call was heard. The sound of an animal crashing through the brush towards the tree came to him.

About laststandonzombieislandLet me introduce myself. I am a bit of a conflict junkie. I am fascinated by war and warfare, assassination, personal protection and weaponry ranging from spud guns and flame throwers to thermonuclear bombs and soviet-trained Ebola monkeys. In short, if it’s violent or a tool to create violence it is kind of my thing. I have written a few hundred articles on the dry encyclopedia side for such websites as History Times, Firearms Talk.com, GUNS.com, Suite 101 (where I am the contracted Feature Writer for Military History) and Combat Forums; as well as for print publications like England Expects, and Strike First Strike Fast. Several magazines such as Sea Classics, Military Historian and Collector, Mississippi Sportsman and Warship International have carried my pieces. Additionally I am on staff as a naval consultant and writer for Eye Spy Intelligence Magazine. Currently I am working on several book projects, including a section in the upcoming Mississippi Encyclopedia (to be published by Ole Miss this summer), an alternative history novel about the US-German War of 1916, and a biography of Bennett Doty. My first novel, about the coming zombie apocalypse was released this Spring by Necro Publications and can be found at Amazon.com. In my day job I am a contractor for the US federal government in what could best be described as the ‘Force Protection’ field. In this I am a certified Firearms, and less-than-lethal combat instructor.
