A writing pal of mine posted on his Facebook page about an anthology he was doing and I have to say my first reaction was “EW!” Zombie Erotica?! Really?! I have no hesitation in admitting that I don’t read horror, and I generally do not like zombies. That being said, my curiosity and love of erotica got the better of me. I asked contributor Tim Marquitz if I could do a review. Here are a few highlights…
Stacey Turner has done an excellent job editing a diverse group of stories. Fifty Shades of Decay opens with the brief and titillating Rabbits by Guy Anthony De Marco and does not let up. Hey, Girl by Erik Williams was quite funny while LOUP by Pepper Scoville brought to mind the gritty self-recorded footage of reality TV shows while offering an enticing way to calm the shambling horde.
Alex Chase’s Subject Zero-Zero shows the cold beauty of death. Ménage a Trauma by Dan Larnerd warns against slumming at two-star hotels. Wednesday Silverwood’s Angel of Mercy offers a kinky kind of karma. We get an interesting take on human cattle in Blaze McRob’s Perpetuation of the Species. The grind of Hollywood is portrayed in John Palisano’s Some Like It Rot; SPOILER: there is a cure!
Two of my favorites include Meat by Tim Marquitz, where we see the joys and dangers of eternally horny undead; and Benjamin Kane Etheridge’s sadly erotic The Z-spot. Last but not least I have to mention Jolie Chaton’s Pretty Kitty’s Post-Apocalyptic Porn Palace where even in the face of apocalyptic change human nature will find an opportunity to turn fortune in its favor.
