"People stopped coming to the North Carolina coast when the dead returned to the beach after four decades away."
A story about a small beach town that's slowly dying, only to have a wave of zombies drop in on them. On surfboards.
A tale of life, death, and life after death, but most of all, a story about living.
“GRSZ” was first published in The Book of More Flesh, October 2002, and it was an Honorable Mention story in the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror, vol. 16. It was reprinted in Gunning for the Buddha.
“In less skilled hands, that would be an interesting gimmick but not much of a story. Jasper throws in a narrator—a man who likes to fish and surf, and who is getting old. The end result is a bittersweet meditation on mortality and afterlife, and a strong message of hope.” — Tangent Online
“The notion of zombies taking up surfing as a beloved preoccupation is weirdly satisfying enough; the rest of Jasper’s story is frosting on the cake.” — Locus
