BURNING BULB PUBLISHING
From John Russo, co-author of Night of the Living Dead™:
“By now almost everyone knows that the concept of the modern flesh-eating zombie originated in the sixties with Night of the Living Dead™. That’s why I think that this anthology of short stories paying homage to that fact is a wonderful idea. When I was asked to write such a story, I was told that each and every story in the book would have to take place in or around the time, in 1968, when the horror classic that I co-authored took place…
Perhaps, for you, dear reader, some of the stories you will read in these pages will take their place as some of your very own favorites. Please step back with me into the 1960’s – a time of peaceniks, rednecks and unspeakable zombie horror!!”

From Legendary Horror Writer John Russo comes a harrowing tale where no one is safe!
Dealey Plaza is one of the most notorious places in America, and when youthful conspiracy buffs go there in 1964 to stage their own reenactment of the Kennedy Assassination, four of them are brutally murdered — the first victims of a hate-filled legacy that continues for four more decades.
The survivors of that long-ago Dallas trip, each of them now icons of the American way of life, are about to be honored — or killed.
Who will live and who will die? Will it be country-western star Lori McCoy? Her loving husband? Her scheming ex-husband? Or the case-hardened FBI agent and longtime friend who risks his life trying to protect them?
This is JOHN RUSSO at his best!

From the Prologue:
Dealey Plaza is one of the most notorious places in America, and in the spring of 1964 I went there with some college pals, conspiracy buffs, who wanted me to help them film their own version of the Kennedy Assassination.
On the way home, four of them were murdered and their footage went up in flames.
It was the first link in a chain of violent death that spanned four decades and caused me to abandon all my youthful hopes and dreams.
As the years went by, some of us who had survived that trip became rich, some became famous or notorious, and some of us were entangled in tricky or dangerous situations that life had thrown our way.
Now we were gathered together for Homecoming Weekend 2000 at Belmont University.
But a killer was waiting for us.
And he was nursing a deadly grudge that had its roots in the trip to Dallas we had embarked on long ago when we were young, adventurous and innocent.
