"Lord John and the Plague of Zombies"



Congratulations to Diana Gabaldon on the publication of her latest story, a novella called "Lord John and the Plague of Zombies", in the DOWN THESE STRANGE STREETS anthology, edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois.

If you've read the story, please feel free to post here and let us know what you thought of it.  (All opinions, pro or con, welcome.)  If you have comments or questions about the story, you can post in the main "Zombies" discussion thread on Compuserve.

I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks of this story!

To those of you on Twitter:

In honor of the release of "Plague of Zombies" on Tuesday, a number of us will be tagging our tweets with #Zombies.  (Short and simple and easy to remember. <g>)  We've had fun with this on various OUTLANDER-related birthdays and other special occasions over the past year or so, and we hope you'll join us....when you're not too busy reading the new story, that is!  Please help spread the word to anyone else who may be interested.  Thanks! [UPDATE 10/4/2011 6:55 am: Hmmmm....the #Zombies tag is bringing up way too many unrelated tweets. :-(  I guess we should have predicted that.  I will be using #LJZombies instead.]

Just finished reading Plague of the Zombies and really enjoyed it! I think it is a great addition to all of Lord John's other adventures! It reminded me how much I like Lord John and now I am really anxious for the release of SCOTTISH PRISONER.

I really need to read Lord John's adventures, especially as he really figured into the end of Echo in the Bone so importantly. I need to move them up my "to read" list!

So where in the chronological order of the LJ stories does this one fit?

"Plague of Zombies" comes after SCOTTISH PRISONER, even though it was published first.
