An original eBook short story available for Kindle.
Welcome to Bela Lugosi University, where zombies, vampires, werewolves, mummies, ogres, ghouls, and other creatures of the night—and of nightmares—learn how to become better, well-rounded monsters. The problem is that even among their fellow students, zombies are treated like second-class monsters: they’re victims of vampire fraternity pranks, frequent targets of werewolf sprayings, and are always the last ones picked for dodge ball. At Bela Lugosi U, vampires and werewolves rule while zombies most definitely drool. When they get pushed too far, a group of zombie underclassmen decide it’s time to take matters into their own decomposing hands and end the cycle of abuse. But first they need to work on their vocabulary skills.
Fun Fact: The character of Professor Warner is a nod to Andy Warner from my novel Breathers.
In this new jaunt into a world where the spooks are very real and not always kept in the dark corners, we find ourselves joining a female zombie during the course of a normal day at university- where the jocks pick on the geeks and outcasts like any other school. Except it’s not any other school because the jocks are werewolves and the outcasts are reanimated and decomposing corpses. Class warfare doesn’t discriminate based on your species or level of humanity. A satirical tale full of references to many horror and pop culture icons, Remedial English for Reanimated Corpses reminds us that, “Just because our hearts have stopped beating doesn’t mean they can’t ache.” I would recommend this book for ages 17 and older due to language and the possibility of peeing from laughter.
