Notes: This is one of my favourite stories, in part because it was one of the very first comedies I ever wrote. My father digs my horror stories, but he's always telling me to write funny stuff. He says I've got a great sense of humour. You'll have to read the story to decide for yourself.

Despite the title there are no flesh-eating creatures in this story; only a bunch of sleep-deprived kids.

"Camp Zombie" is one of three stories I've written in what I call my "Sleep Cycle" — a series of tales about people who suffer from sleep disorders.
