Zombie Book Reviews and Interviews with the Authors

For all aspects of zombie culture, the most talent belong to the writers. There are countless zombie novels out today, and some fall victim to formula. So which ones do you read? We have done several book reviews in the past for the best zombie books we have come across. This is nothing new, in fact most zombie websites do the same. But we are going to try to bring you something special in the next few months.

Starting in February, we will be bringing you reviews to some recent novels including interviews with the authors, to get an insight on their thought process on their book as well as the zombie genre. Our first review coming up will be "Dead beyond the Fence" by Brian Kaufman. Books from IPG and St. Martins Press to follow!

Stay tuned zombie lovers - there is some good reading ahead ;)

2011: A reflection on zombie culture

As with every holiday - we all take a bit of a hiatus to be with family and friends, but we are back with a humble reflection on zombie culture today.

2010 was a very interesting year for zombies. General society is now saturated with the fascination of zombies. Games, movies, books, television and even plush toys have cashed in on the zombie phenomenon. within the past 3 years, zombie culture has seemed to become pop-culture.
It is a matter of personal opinion whether that is a good or bad thing. So where do we go from here? What are we looking forward to that hasn't already been done? will we see a rise in new and exciting ideas or a sharp decline in popular interest?

Only time will tell, but no matter the status of zombies in pop-culture, there will always be true followers of zombie culture. And that is you and me ;)
