New Short Story 'Zombie' In The November Playboy

Chuck Palahniuk short story 'Zombie' in Playboy magazine

Chuck has a new short story called 'Zombie' in the November 2013 issue of Playboy magazine.

Playboy, November 2012, featuring 'Zombies' by Chuck PalahniukIf you're a confident looking non-pervert, head to your local newstand to pick up a copy today.

Here's what Chuck had to say about the story:

"The story was originally published in Playboy, the only major glossy magazine that will risk buying my fiction. When my editor there, Amy Grace Lloyd, wanted to run it the entire staff insisted that [Hugh Hefner] approve it personally. Yes, it's risky, but Hef said it was okay. To date, it's the only story I've written that's made an audience weep instead of vomit. This past spring I read it at a sold-out event in a bar, and hundreds of the hippest, most-jaded readers could be heard sniffing back tears. Anytime my work can coax bodily fluids out of someone, I'm happy."
