Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection. Recommended


Recommended Halloween Reading: Seattle-based writer and filmmaker Don Roff and Oakland, California-based illustrator Chris Lane share an abiding taste in the macabre and have produced the extremely cool and well executed – if you’ll pardon the pun – Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection published by their reanimated minions at Chronicle Books.

Zombies 2

The manuscript that makes up this book documents the author’s time spent living among the undead during those first few months of 2012, or as it’s more commonly known, ‘The Year of Infection‘.

It provides important documentation of the various stages of anatomical deterioration for a victim in the pre and post-mortem states and also notes invaluable anecdotal observations of zombies at close range.

Books on the Radio found the insights, observations and scholarly attention to detail in this book to be crucial in our own recent encounters with wraiths, vampyres and a ghoulish graveyard clerk.  Buy Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection now because it’s a great story and as a manual for recognizing the undead and coping with the the upcoming worldwide necrotic infestation it is not to be missed.

I found it a decent read, nothing revolutionary. Perhaps it lacked the wicked humour of a Romero or Fulci. Still some lovely art from Chris Lane.
