Friday the 13th -“Parting Shot” teaser by Daniel L. Naden

CHAPTER 3 -- THE YARD In the yard, from my vantage point on the deck, I watch an undead zombie-chick stumble. Kind of a stupid thing for her to do, really. She hadn't even been walking, per se. Just shuffling her feet and distantly gnawing on something that looked vaguely like one of Stine's fingers. … Continue reading Friday the 13th -“Parting Shot” teaser by Daniel L. Naden
