Zombie needs

pumpkin
So I'm still open to reading new stories for the zombie chronology anthology I'm editing for Prime Books. Deadline is January 1st. I'm no longer interested in tales that take place after 1800.

I would really love to read a story where Archimede's heat ray or claw was designed to kill zombies. Or that was the rationale behind Zhuge Liang's primitive land mine.

Or perhaps something with the fallen Colossus of Rhodes - imagine a broken gigantic body that is infested with zombies. Symbolic?

Or in Antigone, Polyneices rises from the dead as a zombie because of necromancy.

I want Antiquity. I want Dark Ages.

I can't promise anything wonderful, but I can do my best.

How do you feel about Kassandra and Hector? I do like the Antigone idea as well.

Nano isn't working and play writing is stalled--may as well try something different!

My concern over Kassandra and Hector is that they are myth. I need historical figures.
