Synopses & Reviews
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE ZOMBIE HANDBOOK EVER PUBLISHED
In one indispensable volume, Matt Mogk, founder and head of the Zombie Research Society, busts popular myths and answers all your raging questions about the living dead.*
Q. How can I increase my chances of survival?
A. One simple step is to keep away from other people. Without people there can be no zombies.
Q. What is the connection between the Voodoo zombie and the flesh-eating zombie of popular culture?
A. Other than a shared name, absolutely nothing.
Q. Will zombies actually eat me, or will they just bite and chew?
A. Research suggests the neuromuscular activity required for swallowing may be too complex for a zombie.
Q. Will we see any warning signs before the dead rise?
A. Unfortunately, entire populations could be infected with the zombie sickness before anyone even knows there’s a problem.
Q. How come Zombie Awareness Month is in May and not October?
A. Unlike witches and vampires, zombies are not otherworldly creatures. They are made of flesh and blood. Don’t forget to wear your gray ribbon.
* Many more questions about zombies—including why not all of them are undead—are answered inside the book.
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.
