Short Fiction: Apocabilly
Posted on 16 September 2009
This story has a bit of a back story to how it came to be. Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to win a contest over on Tor.com where I had to caption a post-apocalyptic picture. The caption I created was a play on the Beverly Hillbillies song but adapted to the heroine in the picture and how she went out shooting mutants called glowies. From that, I drew the kernel of what is now this semi-lighthearted and semi-dark humorous story. So, come and listen to the story ’bout a gal named Zed.
