One of the first reviews of Rigor Amortis has been posted over at ‘Bitten By Books’, a site which “provides book reviews for all types of paranormal fiction, urban fantasy and horror.”
Here is a couple of snippets from the review, one about the book in general and the second about my story, ‘Always and Forever’ in particular:
“Rigor Amortis is an excellent collection. This is one of those rare books in which every story is tight and stays true to the purpose of the novel.”
“Always and Forever – Jay Faulkner
What happens when your true love is now one of the undead? Will she sacrifice herself to save you or will you sacrifice your life to be with her, always and forever?
This is a beautiful and sorrowful tale of a married couple whose life is destroyed by a virus, and the lengths they will go to to honor their love. In just over two pages the author allows us to feel the longing, fear and the depth of love this couple share.”
The Rigor Amortis zombie anthology, featuring one my stories – ‘Always and Forever’, is OFFICIALLY launched today!
To whet your appetite here’s a sneak preview, a little snippet or three from the story:
She’s at the door again. I don’t look; I know she’s there. She’s been there every day and every night since she died.
Her skin taut and pale, eyes fixed and glassy, she walked into the door time, after time, after time. So I open the door.
She moves toward me with a rictus smile of…longing? My eyes fill. I wait for her embrace with a whisper. “Forever.”

Horror and erotica. Zombies and romance. Rigor Amortis.
Maybe a tender love story is your thing, a husband doting on his wife’s rotting corpse. Or perhaps a forbidden encounter in a secret café, serving up the latest in delectable zombie cuisine, or some dirty, dirty dancing in the old-time honky-tonk. Voodoo sex-slaves and vending machine body-parts? You’ll find those here, too.
Whatever your flavor, these short tales of undead Romance, Revenge, Risk, and Raunch will leave you shambling, moaning, and clawing for more.
And come he slow, or come he fast,
It is but Death who comes at last.
–Sir Walter Scott, “Marmion”, 1808
