On November 2, 2005 a woman named Jamie Ann apparently posted Kelly’s story “Some Zombie Contingency Plans” on her blog, Haunted Love (subtitled “My Stories & Poems Page”) under the title “Contingency.”
The best part about this is that if you double-click on the page up pops a warning (see 2nd image) which says:
The page at http://windsource3.blogspot.com says:

We tried emailing Jamie Ann a couple of times but received no reply. So if you haven’t read “Some Zombie Contingency Plans” go read it now before Blogger/Google take it down.
Many of Kelly’s stories are online—the latest is “Origin Story” on A Public Space’s website (used to be an excerpt, now it’s the full story). Stranger Things Happen is available online under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.
“Some Zombie Contingency Plans,” like the other stories in Magic for Beginners, was published under regular old copyright. At some point we hope to make it available under a Creative Commons Copyright—but even then, doing what Jamie Ann has done is pretty weird. Flattering, but weird.
