"Larger Than Life" was my story for The Ultimate Zombie.
It was actually my second attempt; I started a story called "Undying Love," but then I decided the ending wasn't going to work, and the story was getting too gross for me, so I put it aside and wrote "Larger Than Life" instead.
I'd like to give some cute little anecdote about where I got the idea for the story, but the truth is, I don't know. After abandoning the hideously morbid "Undying Love" I wanted to do something light, but how I decided to write about a movie crew -- I dunno. It just happened.
Wherever it came from, I was happy with the story, the folks at Preiss were happy with it, it was published, and I was happy with the check they sent me.
That's it; here's your list of handy exits:
