Stebbins Little School is full of bodies. It's unthinkable to Desdemona Fox. Children are sobbing as panicked teachers and neighbors beat down their family members outside of the school...or the things that used to be their family members. Parents don't eat their children do they? Officers Fox and Hammond, along with journalist Billy Trout, are calling it the beginning of the end. This is the zombie apocalypse. An insane escaped serial killer is infecting Stebbins County with a deadly virus, and now the whole world is watching while Fox, Trout, and the remaining inhabitants of Stebbins fight for their life against...what? The undead? The President and the National Guard are ready to nuke Stebbins, PA off the map and cut their losses. But the infection is spreading and fast. Worse, the scientist who created the virus is missing. It's a numbers game as the body count rises; Fox has to contain the infected and evacuate the living before it's too late, and the clock is ticking... Fall of Night, Maberry's nail-biting sequel to Dead of Night, picks up where the first novel left off—on a wild goose chase for a madman and the missing scientist who gave him new "un"-life. Chilling, gory, and hair-raisingly scary, Maberry fans won't be able to read this fast-paced thriller with the lights off.

Rampaging, driven, killing machines. Soulless and dead. Infected and infectious. Zombies. The epidemic of the living dead is stronger than ever in today’s pop-culture, 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 to understanding, combating, and avoiding zombies. More than 250 entries cover everything from hit television shows, books, and movies, including The Walking Dead, World War Z and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, to zombies’ ignominious role in folklore and mythology, such as the Greek god Asclepius, ancient Voodoo religion, and the Native American Wendigo legend. The Zombie Book: The Encyclopedia of the Living Dead examines mad cow disease, the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the Centers for Disease Control preparing for the end of the world, and much, much more.

During the 1700's, Black Beard's ship, the "Queen Anne's Revenge" ran aground at the entrance to Beaufort inlet and wasn't discovered until hundreds of years later. During an expedition of the sunken ship "The Queen Anne's Revenge," something went terribly wrong, but the effects of that incident would not be felt until years later when a barrel of an unknown substance was tossed overboard during the expedition. The barrel took several years to erode, but when it did that's when all hell broke loose. The substance oozing out of the barrel on the ocean floor brought Black Beard and his men to life as zombies, causing them to become hungry for flesh and surface to the top of the ocean and head inland for flesh.

The zombie has cropped up in many forms--in film, in television, and as a cultural phenomenon in zombie walks and zombie awareness months--but few books have looked at what the zombie means in fiction. Tim Lanzendörfer fills this gap by looking at a number of zombie novels, short stories, and comics, and probing what the zombie represents in contemporary literature. Lanzendörfer brings together the most recent critical discussion of zombies and applies it to a selection of key texts including Max Brooks's World War Z, Colson Whitehead's Zone One, Junot Díaz's short story "Monstro, " Robert Kirkman's comic series The Walking Dead, and Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Within the context of broader literary culture, Lanzendörfer makes the case for reading these texts with care and openness in their own right. Lanzendörfer contends that what zombies do is less important than what becomes possible when they are around. Indeed, they seem less interesting as metaphors for the various ways the world could end than they do as vehicles for how the world might exist in a different and often better form.

"The Zombie Haggadah is a hilarious, yet disturbing, guide to the annual discussions of the zombie exodus from Egypt and the ten curses that befell their mummy captors. The text is based on the traditional Passover guidebook, the Haggadah, and features commentary from zombie sages referencing zombie versions of Talmudic sources and biblical stories. The Zombie Haggadah delves into crevices one would never think a half-eaten zombie brain could reach, but also introduces topics one would never think a family seder could reach. You can't find a more fun, deranged, and perfect way to bring even the most dead seder tables back to undeath"--

In 2028, Earth was decimated by the great zombie invasion when a virus and then contamination struck the earth. The virus started in the Eastern European countries by first striking all military and all law enforcement agencies. With no one to protect the general population the contamination spread quickly and devastated the population. The military and law enforcement agencies in Eastern European countries blamed the virus on a mandatory vaccine that was administered to them by their respective governments. The politicians of the governments blamed the contamination on terrorists. The contamination spread quickly throughout the region and then spread quickly to other continents, Asia, Australia, Africa and even Antarctica. The military and law enforcement agencies in North and South America prevented the contamination from spreading. It did hurt major cities in those continents before it was eradicated. There was only minor damaged economically to the Western hemisphere but damage to the rest of the world was devastating. In 2031, the Panzer Pharmaceutical Company developed an antidote called Erzombie that could tame zombies and not spread contamination to humans. Planet Earth had a decision to make to either exterminate or domesticate the zombies.

In the future, NASA's first yearlong mission to Mars mysteriously loses contact with Earth. When the desperate crew of the Space Shuttle Aldrin arrives home, there are no marching bands, fanfares, or joyous reunions to greet them, only a lonely trek across a barren world. At a darkened military base hidden in the desert, the crew stumbles upon a mystery of locked doors, disarray, and bloodstained walls. They also recover a dormant laptop, complete with a journal telling of a nightmarish pandemic sweeping across the planet. Where society once rushed to and fro in the fast-paced and unceasing rat race of the early 21st century, the crew of the Aldrin now finds a world that shambles along on a crumbling highway, littered with desperate characters, flesh-craving zombies, and maybe, if they are lucky, a few living survivors. Welcome to Earth. Or by its new name, the Planet of the Dead.

Why have zombies resonated so pervasively in the popular imagination and in media, especially films? Why have they proved to be one of the most versatile and popular monster types in the growing video game industry? What makes zombies such widespread symbols of horror and dread, and how have portrayals of zombies in movies changed and evolved to fit contemporary fears, anxieties, and social issues? Zombies have held a unique place in film and popular culture throughout most of the 20th century. Rare in that this enduring monster type originated in non-European folk culture rather than the Gothic tradition from which monsters like vampires and werewolves have emerged, zombies have in many ways superseded these Gothic monsters in popular entertainment and the public imagination and have increasingly been used in discussions ranging from the philosophy of mind to computer lingo to the business press. Zombie Culture brings together scholars from a variety of fields, including cinema studies, popular culture, and video game studies, who have examined the living dead through a variety of lenses. By looking at how portrayals of zombies have evolved from their folkloric roots and entered popular culture, readers will gain deeper insights into what zombies mean in terms of the public psyche, how they represent societal fears, and how their evolving portrayals continue to reflect underlying beliefs of The Other, contagion, and death.

Zombies are cautionary forms of humankind’s most universally cherished ideal—life after death. Ragged, ill-spoken, rotting zombies (or the post-dead) seem socially awkward beside the more popular and aristocratic undead, like Count Dracula. The humble zombie remains, for the most part, unappreciated and unacknowledged—until now. The first exhaustive historical overview of zombie films, this book’s lengthy entries evaluate more than 200 movies from 16 countries over a 65-year period from the early 1930s to the late 1990s. It covers everything from large studio films to backyard videography, and touches on memorable television episodes and miscellaneous shorts. An introduction traces the evolution of the genre and interprets the broader significance of the zombie in contemporary Western mythology.
