"Damn fine reading... profound and imaginative... the best zombie story I've read this year."
Mark L. Miller ("AmbushBug"), AintItCool.com
The dead turned the world upside-down. Now the living are trying to put it right.
Basic infrastructures are back in place. Roads, schools, and government offices are functioning. The economy is staggering back to health. The wandering dead are under control, mostly.
This spartan new world is missing something. Technically, life is complete, in that our survival is protected and our needs are met. But it lacks the je-ne-sais-quoi that is Art: living, breathing, inspiring, redeeming Art.
Noted critic Wendell Shakelton-Bailey III has had the good fortune to attend perhaps the first performance in a postmillenial renaissance of creative thought, a production so avant-garde, so exquisitely earth-shattering, that it will be both celebrated and condemned for centuries into our postzombie world.
Only a few were able to attend Michael Russell's controversial orchestral presentation "Symphony for a World Unmade", a performance never to be repeated. Those who did, especially those who were involved in the participatory grand finale, will certainly tell you that it was the most intense concert experience of their lives. Through Shakelton-Bailey's expertly penned review, you, dear readers, may have the opportunity to relive the brilliant, chilling final performance of Michael Russell: the first painful and beautiful motions of a new era of Art.
Produced specially for and debuting at Monroeville, Pennsyvania's 2008 Zombie Fest, Flesh is Fleeting... Art is Forever! is now available online for consumption by the masses. Gary A. Braunbeck's work has earned awards from the Horror Writers' Association and the International Horror Guild, including a Bram Stoker Award for his 2005 zombie chapbook We Now Pause for Station Identification.
"A cracking good zombie yarn... Highly recommended."

About the Author
Gary A. Braunbeck was born in the Year of the Rat and has been apologizing for it ever since. When he's not out and about stopping strangers on the street and begging them to forgive him for his sins, he can usually be found holed up in his office writing stories and novels in any number of genres. His work has been nominated for the International Horror Guild Award and has won the Horror Writers' Association's Bram Stoker Award, including 2005's lauded zombie chapbook, We Now Pause for Station Identification. Gary is also a creative writing instructor at Seton Hill University, where he teaches in an innovative masterís degree program in writing popular fiction. He doesn't get invited to many parties, which everyone agrees is for the best. He currently lives in Columbus, Ohio, where no one has heard of him. He claims to like it that way.
He is the author of the novels In Silent Graves, Keepers, Mr. Hands, and Coffin County. Visit him online at garybraunbeck.com.
