“Rolled Up,” my latest short story, is out now in the Weirdpunk Books/CLASH Books anthology Zombie Punks Fuck Off. This is a collection of stories about zombies and punks. Check out this cover by artist Michael Bukowski:


My story was inspired by John Joseph, singer of the legendary New York hardcore band the Cro-Mags. I went on a walking tour he led through Manhattan, in which he talked about ’80s New York City and told stories from his younger, crazier days. One of the stories was about a man who liked to be rolled up inside a rug and put outside of punk clubs so people could step on him. That was my starting point. I added more zombies.

Edited by Sam Richard, this one features stories by a lot of other talented authors, including David W. Barbee, Brendan Vidito, Joe Quenell, Carmilla Voiez, Danger Slater, Mark Zirbel, Leo X. Robertson, Sam Reeve, Axel Kohagen, Asher Ellis, Madison McSweeney and Nicholaus Patnaude.

Also, this is the first story published under my new, true name: Emma Alice Johnson.
