Virtual Zombie Walk Day! Braaaaaiiiinnnzzzz....

Ah, it’s that time of year again. When the dead rise and hunger for human flesh, all while walking across cities, towns and blogs, looking for brains. Last year I was completely insane and did a weird little story, where I incorporated fellow blogger friends.  This year I was inspired to do something a little different, when a friend and fellow blogger Cabin Goddess told me she loves zombies.


Of course, I promised her I would compile a list of awesome zombie stuff to entertain her. So here is a MEGA AWESOME ZOMBIE CRAP list to hopefully keep her and you readers engaged with the undead!


Let’s start with books shall we? Because every good zombie fan should know how to read. And if you don’t, eat some brains of a reader and absorb their power, so you can then read these books! I hand-picked these books and they range from comics to non-fiction.  Tasty literature of the dead…

Fiction: The Rising by Brian Keene
He’s the man when it comes to survival horror. He has a whole series too of horrific zombie books, but you should definitely start with The Rising. It’s a brilliant, creepy book written from the perspective of a desperate man just trying to find his son. If you think Walking Dead is awesome, you’ll love Keene’s stuff. 

Comics: The Walking Dead
Now I am a fan of the show, but it’s got nothing on the comic. This series is as brutal as the show, and the characters in my opinion are more fleshed out than in the show. And if you think Michonne’s bad ass in the show, you haven’t seen anything yet. (She's my fav in the comic)

Fiction: World War Z by Max Brooks
This horrific book is an oral history told by many survivors of the start, during, and aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. This gives the book many interesting perspectives on the zombie outbreak. It’s an intense read, and very well written, keeping the reader engaged throughout the book. A must read for zombie lovers.

Non-Fiction: Zombies!: An Illustrated History of the Undead by Jovanka Vuckovic
This book is probably the most complete compendium I have ever read about the zombie phenomenon. Jovanka is thorough in her research, and touches on everything from Voodoo Zombies, to Zombies in pop culture. She shows the evolution of the creature, and how we’ve taken it from the realms of myth into its own cult following. And there are lots of pictures!

Non-Fiction:  The Undead and Philosophy: Chicken Soup for the Soulless (Popular Culture and Philosophy) by Richard Greene and K. Silem Mohammad
For the more deep thinking zombie lovers among us, I bring you this book, dedicated to asking the deeper questions when discussing the undead. Questions such as: What is a p-zombie? How horrible would it really be to become undead? Can the dead be held accountable for what they do? And many more.  There’s also articles on vampires too, and what is the real difference between a vampire and a zombie. It’s a great read.

Hope you enjoyed my post! Now shuffle over to these deadites and see what zombie goodness they have in store for you:

  1. Well great job on your contribution to the walk, lots of us here... zombies don't play with dead things.

    Jeremy [Retro]
    Oh No, Let's Go... Crazy

  2. Haha! Awesome post, Gorgeous! I'm dying to get my hands on World War Z! Loving The Undead and Philosophy: Chicken Soup for the Soulless!
    I'd love for you to stop by my Walk's
    Carmen Jenner Author and Book Me! for a Short Story and Character Interview!
    Happy Shambling! =D

  3. Those are great recommendations. I'll have to check out The Undead and Philosophy. I'm really curious how they're going to manage to turn World War Z into a movie. Have fun zombie walking.

  4. Fantastic zombie reads. Thanks--I really wanna read Keane. I keep meaning to.

  5. Great list! My husband will be happy if I get the last book so I can stop bugging him with my philosophical zombie questions!

  6. Here from the zombie walk. I've only read Brian Keene so far; really good.

  7. My fiance keeps prodding me to buy The Walking Dead comic series but I steadfastly refrain. I don't want to know the story! I prefer to wait and watch everything unfold on the TV series.

    By the way, cool mention of books. Right now I am reading "Sven the Zombie Killer."

    Following your blog now. I'll be lurking for you.


  8. Awesome list of books! Thanks for sharing the zombie love. ;-)

    Keep reading
