Twitter of the Dead

I was at a writing conference this weekend, and discovered a new publisher--Living Dead Press. They specialize in horror short story anthologies. Here is a really fun call for submissions they have going up: Twitter of the Dead.

FYI, they don't pay anything for inclusion but contributors' copies, but that makes it a good stepping stone for bigger and better things in the future.
