Life on the Dark Side of the Moon, by Michael A. Kechula

“I wonder what it’s gonna be like living on the Dark Side of the Moon?” Harry asked a fellow immigrant on spaceship Resettlement.

“It’ll be far safer than living on Earth.”


“There’s no chance of ever getting attacked by werewolves, because there’s never a full moon.”

“What a relief!   What about vampires?”

“It’s so dark, vampires can’t find anybody’s neck.”

“Makes sense.  How about brain eating zombies?”

“If they can’t see you, they can’t catch you to eat your brains.”

Harry found the passenger’s words extremely comforting, until they landed and he ran into ten hungry zombies carrying flashlights.
