Screen Siren

Cover for Screen SirenAuthor: Annabeth Leong

Director Sam Raymond lacks the star power to work with living actresses—instead, the studio makes him stretch his rock-bottom budgets by casting the undead. By night, he labors at a screenplay for the actress he hopes to cast one day, the lovely Jessica Savage.

In cruel Hollywood, however, aging hopefuls sometimes arrange to die in order to have a chance of appearing in a casting call—what used to be called suicide has become a career move. Jessica succumbs to temptation and appears on Sam’s lot as part of a zombie “meat pile.”

Sam recognizes the dangerous intelligence in her eyes, but he can’t bring himself to shoot her. He’s determined to get the movie and the woman he wants, no matter what he has to risk in the process. (M/F)
