What if…?

The introduction by Max Booth III to ZOMBIE JESUS AND OTHER TRUE STORIES from Dark Moon Books and featuring my short story, “Sic Semper Versipellis” is up at the Zombie Jesus Blog.

It’s a question we all ask ourselves. A question that has sparked countless books and movies. A question that unravels our minds and breaks all sense of reality as we know it. What if you could go back in time and change the past? What if you could shape the future as you see fit?
