9781578595044: The Zombie Book: The Encyclopedia of the Living Dead

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.

Review:

"...an amazing anthology that shows how zombie myths have grown throughout history and around the world. ... A fascinating, informative collection that anyone interested in the history of zombies will want to read. It’s funny, scary, and sometimes shocking." Library Journal

"Even if you’re a zombie fanatic, I’ll wager you know only a fraction of zombie facts, lore, and legend. Well, now you can get completely up to speed with The Zombie Book: The Encyclopedia of the Living Dead. This book provides comprehensive information about every zombie movie and TV show ever made. The most interesting entries are the ones about creatures, lore, or historical events with which I am not familiar." About.com

"The Zombie Book is appropriately chock full of relative zombie items. It’s not just all films and/or legends but more an overview of items and subjects that fall under higher interest items in the zombie genre. This is a great zombie reference book presented by 2 amazing authors." HorrorNews.net

"...an amusing and helpful encyclopedia to aid in film studies as well as research into popular culture." ARBA

"The Zombie Book is a pleasant read. Just as the subtitle indicates, it offers an encyclopedic look at all things zombie. ... there’s a lot here, perhaps too much: movies, books, folkore, ancient mythology, conspiracy theories, cryptozoology, Voodoo, Ufology." PopMatters.com
