It's funny how, anymore, the word "Zombie" is spoken in so many settings, it's becoming a household name. Every time I tune into the television, a commercial or sitcom, or even news report, I'm hearing them name drop the Z-bomb... ZOMBIE!  I mean, even the CDC has tried to use the Zombie movement for awareness purposes. Even my Mom now knows what a Zombie is. I'll bet if I watch Jeopardy tomorrow, Alex will tell some schmuck "No one alive is safe from these undead beings called....."  To which the contestant will bam his little clicker and shout out: "What is ZOMBIES?!!!"  I'll take 'Latest Craze' for $500, Alex...
   I have always been somewhat fascinated with Zombies, for many years, anyway. I remember watching a movie called: Humanoids From The Deep, and being scared, thinking these horrific beings were awesome! They may have not been Zombies, exactly, but they helped set the mood for all things that creepeth wildly and savagely. Same goes for John Carpenter's: The Fog. These days, Horror films have so much more technology (and budget), than the movies I remember as being scary, such as The Blob, are silly almost when compared to today's 'over-the-top' productions.
   Zombies are big in any era, and only getting bigger. If you breathe the word "zombie" in public it will get a response. Everybody either loves them, or is curious about them. So in a sense, the world is doing my advertising for me. Any time someone sees my book, they will know the word "Zombie", and hopefully want to pick it up and read it. This book is certainly designed to perk a person's curiousity, not to mention raising awareness about potential Zombie threats. So if you have ever said the word "Zombie" to anyone, I thank you for helping me in my campaign against this unnatural force...
