George Romero is dead. He pretty much invented the zombie grindhouse flick with his Night of the Living Dead. The modern zombie story wouldn’t be thriving today without Romero.
Zombies were lumbering oafs in the movies like in White Zombie before Night of the Living Dead came along. Essentially harmless unless commanded to do evil by someone like Bela Lugosi, they lumbered around with dead eyes. They lumbered around in Night of the Living Dead too, with one important difference–they had developed a taste for living flesh, especially the human kind. But they weren’t picky; they ate living bugs, as well.
Their evolution into flesh eaters made them the horrifying creature that they are today in movies and books.

Bryan Cassiday will be releasing a new anthology of his zombie stories together for the first time under one cover, including a brand-new story that has never before been published. The anthology will be called The Bus Stops Here and Other Zombie Tales.
All zombies all the time. The story “The Bus Stops Here” gets its world debut here. A school bus and its adult passengers are stranded in a nightmare that gets worse by the minute. In all these stories the zombie action is nonstop and lethal. During a zombie apocalypse, everybody is caught up in a Hobbesian world where life is nasty, brutish, and short. Along with graphic zombie mayhem these tales depict the lengths that individuals will go to to survive. But even the strong will have trouble surviving . . .
It’s not just the voracious brutality of the zombies, but the psychological toll they take on their human victims. Even if you’re lucky enough to survive their teeth, you may lose your mind in the process.
The Bus Stops Here and Other Zombie Tales is now available for preorder on Smashwords.
