Several years ago, I was having a discussion with my daughter about the way religions got started. I told her that I could invent a religion and that, unlike every other religion, it wouldn't be falsifiable. She told me I was crazy. It took me about half an hour to come up with this.

An unusual young woman, Leza lives with, cares for, communicates and controls an army of the undead. She can teach the living how to survive, if the humans can only keep from killing her.

Now that I've completed the story (at least on FS and Sci-Fi), I've gotta ask. While I've been bitching about how unpopular the story is (few readers), despite people enjoying it once reading, I'm cur... more
Here it is nearing summer in the Northern Hemisphere once again. Hard to believe we're this far into 2017.

It's interesting, but "Zombie Leza" is now both my highest (on FineStories) and my lowest-rated story (on SOL). That reinforces my 'age differences on the different sites' supposition, though I have n... more
