Zombies Can't Swim And Other Tales Of The Undead


Zombies Can't Swim And Other Tales Of The Undead is an anthology of 23 short stories written by Colin M. Drysdale, which was first published in December 2013. These stories explore a variety of zombie and post-apocalyptic related themes in tales ranging from ones short enough to fit in a Twitter posting, through flash fiction to full length short stories. They take their inspiration from subjects as disparate as the real life mystery of Flannan Isle through dilemmas you may face in a zombie apocalypse to why you shouldn't try waiting up for Santa Claus.

Zombies Can't Swim And Other Tales Of The Undead  is available as a paperback (for $7.99) or as a Kindle ebook for  just $0.99.  All but one of these stories are also available individually (and for free) on the Free Stories Section of this website. However, there is one story (The Black Heart Of The Sea) which will only ever be available in this anthology.

In addition, there is a cover which has been specifically design for this anthology by the author, and the stories have all been re-edited to improve the overall quality.
