Why is the Apocalypse so Fascinating?

What is it we love about the end of the world?

Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city

Did someone say apocalypse?

Seems like the apocalypse is everywhere these days. Books. Games. TV shows and movies. And it’s not really a new thing. From the dawn of humanity, folks have been fascinated with the end of the world as we know it (some times more than others). Why is that?

I have a few theories: Continue reading

How Sympathetic Can a Zombie Be?

Zombies Were People Too

Flesh and Bone, Rot and Ruin Book 3, by Jonathan Mayberry

The 3rd Rot & Ruin Book

I recently read Jonathan Maberry‘s Rot and Ruin series, the story of four friends who’ve grown up in a zombie devastated world. As they try to find their place in this world, they have to choose between safety, an illusion crafted from stagnation and denial for many of the survivors, and freedom in a land where everything wants to kill them.

While the novels deliver all the shambling, flesh-hungry zombie terror you’d expect, it also packs a huge emotional punch. Good horror makes you care about the characters but Jonathan Maberry makes you care about the monster too. Continue reading

Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Out in the Garden

Look Out! Zombie Garden Gnomes on the Loose.

Zombie Garden GnomesYou saunter outside in your People of Walmart sweats pajamas, eyes still bleary from sleep, hair sticking up, trying to wash the morning breath away with coffee and whiskey. The sun is shining. The birds are singing. There’s a rustling in the bushes.

A rustling in the bushes?!

You turn to see what it is and come face to face with… Continue reading

How To Build A Zombie

Zombies. What are they really? Magically animated corpses or victims of a mutated virus that reanimates the dead or drives the living to become monsters.

 Zombie Pose Spidey…spidey-senses…mrmph…brainz…

In a recent post, Rafael of Neither Here nor There pointed out that zombies just don’t work, as least not from a “realistic” explanation point of view. There’s too much suspension of disbelief required to buy the virus-infection origin of the zombie. A supernatural origin, on the other hand, would be believable. Continue reading

Are You the Main Character of Your Life? by Jess Witkins

Welcome to another Life List Club Friday. Today, I’m at Jenny Hansen’s, fessing up to my not so secret love of tacos. And, over here, we have the super-funny and always-cool Jess Witkins with us, talking about dreams and fear and cute little zombie kittnens. Take it away Jess…

Are You The Main Character of Your Life?

Do you ever start to dream about the things you’re doing, watching, or reading?  I didn’t use to.  But lately my dreams have taken on a very suspense/horror feeling about them.  I think I need to stop reading Dan Brown books and watching zombie/vampire/witch shows before bed (but I so love Walking Dead and Vampire Diaries!)
