World Horror Con in Portland in May

For the book signing at the the World Horror Con in Portland, Oregon, on May 9, 2014, you can bring books that I’ll sign or you can buy books from me and I’ll sign them.  At this point, I don’t know how many I will bring.  Not a whole lot, that’s for sure.  Books are heavy!  If you want to be sure to get my signature, it would probably be best to buy the book first and bring it with you for me to sign.  It’s up to you.  Either way, I’ll be signing books.  Hope to see you there!

What Is It about Zombie Books?

“The thing that readers of any zombie book need to have in common is at least a medium tolerance for violence.”–Library Journal (July 2013)

You need to have more than a medium tolerance for violence to read my zombie books. You need to be downright bloodthirsty.

The Library Journal is trying to figure out why zombie books keep coming back from the dead, so to speak, in their July issue.  They seem to think that zombie comedies are superior to straight zombie horror books.  Therefore, I would definitely not recommend my zombie books to the Library Journal.

And I take issue with their view that zombie comedies are superior to zombie horror taken neat.  Certainly zombie books can have funny dialogue and funny scenes in them, but the main thrust of the zombie book should be horror, not comedy.  Zombie comedy books that play zombies strictly for laughs are not appreciated by the true connoisseur of zombie books.

The same could be said for zombie movies.  Not only is the comedy Zombie Land inferior to a true zombie horror film like Night of the Living Dead, it’s not even in the same league.  It’s nonsense to even compare the two.  Their only similarity is that they both happen to have zombies in them.

In short, zombie books aren’t about comedy.  They’re about horror.  As Lenin famously said about terrorism, “The purpose of terrorism is to terrify.”  First and foremost, a true zombie horror book needs to horrify.  Zombie books need to get back to their roots and scare the bejabbers out of readers and shed buckets of blood in the process.
