The Lusty Dead

NEVER SAY DIE: A CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS  by Special Guest Blogger, Erin Orison

Now this is a project worth supporting. Love, or should I say lust, is also for the dead and the restless, or is that the restless dead? Deadlings, do send in your work. This is a perfect opportunity to share the Dead Love. And many thanks to Ms. Kitty, a much-loved member of the ZIA, for sending this my way.

Call for Submissions:

The Love that Never Dies: Undead Erotica

Edited By M.Christian

An anthology of gay, straight, and lesbian stories exploring the erotic allure of the undead, to be published by Renaissance E Books/Sizzler Editions ( ).

Drop-dead (yet gorgeous) zombies, stylishly-immortal playboys cursed to promenade the earth for eternity, Egyptian Queens with enticing mummy wraps, bloodsucking old favorites … there’s a certain kinky ‘something’ about folks who may have kicked the bucket but are still walking around ­ and looking good.

Authors are encouraged to take new and imaginative approaches to what makes a character ‘undead,’ as well as to what their allure, and sexual appetites can be.  For this anthology, ‘undead’ can refer to zombies, immortals, resurrectees, mummies, ghosts, revenants, golems, wights, and ­ yes ­ vampires.  But please keep in mind that this is not a vampire book, so only one or two vampire stories will be included in the final anthology.   Stories may feature humor, horror, romance, or mystery but all submissions must be explicitly erotic.  Stories featuring rape, underage characters, homophobia, bestiality or ‘violence porn’ will not be considered,   If you have questions about whether or not your story may work for this anthology, please contact M.Christian with your questions or concerns.   Both previously published and original works will be considered.

Story length: 1,000 to 5,000 words Deadline for Submissions: December 1, 2010

Rights: First North American Anthology Rights

Payment: $25, paid on publication

Email submissions should be sent to: (rtf format only, be sure to include contact information on all attachments)   Questions? Contact M. Christian (
