Brownlee

Louis Brownlee is another important character whose life, death, and undeath precede Empire. Brownlee was the first zombie Death ever encountered, forcing the Reaper to cross into the living realm and beginning his century-long quest to exterminate the undead.

Brownlee currently appears in "Brownlee's Blue Flame" in my collection, Dark Entities, and The Undead: Flesh Feast; and "Catch-666" in the June/July 2008 issue of NexGen Pulp.

Brownlee died of cancer, and in fact his body still craves the cigarettes that did him in. He is also connected to the origin of the zombie virus - all that, however, will have to wait until the Empire sequel...

But before we go, here's an ode to addiction.

It spread from his lungs to his gut.
Not even death could break his rut.
   At brains he won't balk
   But this dead man can talk,
And we know he still prefers a butt.
