Kelly Link's Zombie Stories

One of my favorite short-story writers is Kelly Link. I've been re-reading her short-story collection, MAGIC FOR BEGINNERS,
which happens to feature two zombie-themed stories -- "The Hortlak" and "Some Zombie
Contingency Plans."

I thought I'd share the following brief excerpt (more of an excerpt-ette, actually)
from "The Hortlak" --

"The zombies were like Canadians, in that they looked enough like real people at first to fool you. But when you looked closer, you saw that they were from some
other place, where things were different: where even the same things, the things that went on everywhere, were just a little bit different."
