Hi all

Thought I'd start up a thread to see who loves (Everything) to do with Zombies, and who's a fan of reading Zombie stories.  I'll start by saying I am a HUGE Zombie fan ((Of course)) lol

Of course, I have a hidden agenda to starting this thread up, why beat around the bush and hide that? No reason to hide it, so I'm here to share with you, those of you that is interested in Zombies. My two books :)

I've written and published a two book series - yes you guessed it about Zombies.  However what you haven't guessed, is these are no ordinary Zombies. 

On the contrary, they are Zombie Dogs!

Yes, you heard correctly, Zombie Dogs (Interested?) I'm sure you are :)

Why not wet your appetite and have a little look, take a peek into the (Read-Preview) curtesy of Amazon and enjoy a taste of something new, unique and gruesome.

With five star reviews, it won't disappoint :)

It'll be interesting to see who else here loves Zombie stories :)

Welcome to the pit, Ellie.

I'm not sure that I love zombies, but after going to see Chuck Palahniuk I have a better understanding of the genre.

He told us a story about Max Booth, author of World War Z, and how he came up with the idea for the story. Apparently, and this is of course heresay, Max's mother was struggling/dying from cancer. And every time they would go see a doctor, they were assured that they would be able to contain it and beat it. But each time, it escaped and the cancer spread. For Max, her cancer was like zombies.

Then I saw this youtube video on the old horror masters, the guys who came up with all the old things that terrified the youths of the 70s, 80, and 90s. And they used zombies as a way to express what it felt like while they were combatting against racism, and homophobia, and sexism. It was that unrelenting horror, that even when you thought it was contained, some how still escaped. I wish I could find the name of that film. It was amazing.

Cohen's Seven Monster Theses does a great job of explaining how monsters are incorporated into narratives.

But, anyway, I wish you the best with your novels. I wish you the best with your future writing.
