Two respected authors, researchers and experts on the unexplained and paranormal team up to bring you the definitive guide to zombies!
The apocalypse of the rapacious, infectious living dead is more probable than everat least, if movies, books, and television are to be believed. But long before exotic viruses, biological warfare, and sinister military experiments brought the dead back to life in our cinemas and on our television screens, there were the dark spells and incantations of the ancient Egyptians, the Sumerians, and the Babylonians. Blending the historical with the modern, the biographical with the literary, the plants and animals with bacteria and viruses, the mythological with the horrifying true tales, The Zombie Book: The Encyclopedia of the Living Dead is a comprehensive resource for understanding, combating, and avoiding all things zombie.
More than 250 entries cover everything about the ignominious role in folklore and mythology to today's pop culture, including
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Mad Cow Disease
The Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918
The Centers for Disease Control and FEMA's Zombie Preparedness plans
The MacArthur Causeway Face-eating Zombie
Nazi Experiments to Resurrect the Dead
Night of the Living Dead
and much, much more.
Blending historical review and a lot of pop-culture fun with chilling tales of ravenous end-of-times horrors, The Zombie Book is perfect for browsing or for a thorough reading by fans of the macabre. An extensive bibliography and index make this the prefect start to anyone's quest for preparing for a zombie cataclysm.
