Synopsis:

A thorough and entertaining compendium of all things zombie, by the founder of the Zombie Research Society!

Zombies have arrived as a popular cultural phenomenon. Max Brooks’s now dated Zombie Survival Guide (2003) established the genre of contemporary zombie books, which has expanded into bestselling zombie fiction, such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, poetry ( Zombie Haiku ), and scores of video games. Matt Mogk now takes the subject even further.

The zombie is a complex topic for neophytes and the experienced alike, requiring a guide to untangle all the various modes of zombiedom. Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies is the first up-to-date, comprehensive handbook on zombies ever published, with thorough coverage of all four aspects of zombies that readers want to know about: (1) what modern zombies are and what makes them different; (2) zombie science; (3) zombie survival; and (4) zombies in popular culture.Written by an acknowledged leader in the field of zombie research, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies is a one-of-a-kind compendium for the zombie fanatic and casual fan alike.
