Guest Post: THE ART OF EATING ZOMBIE


Today's post is from Lauren Wilson, author of THE ART OF EATING THROUGH THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. We're giving away a copy of her book at Thursday's ZOMBIE SHOW. (Can't wait? You can buy the book here.)


*      *      * 
Huh? There was a news report of some guy whacked out on bath salts eating some other dude’s face off in the street today? Hurmmmm, there was a piece in the paper about a lady being mauled to death by an unidentified wild animal in a nearby park?

Welcome to the zombie apocalypse! Tomorrow is a big day: you will be losing your head (hopefully not literally) trying to fend off the newly infected. On top of that, those pesky little weak spots in your fortress will surely present themselves, leaving you overwhelmed with survival and physical defense–focused activities.

Before you go to sleep tonight (if it even seems safe to do so), why not plan ahead for breakfast? Not only will it help use up some of your perishables (milk, eggs, butter, bread) before the power goes out, it will also give you a calorie-rich jumpstart to your undead-filled day.

If the power has already gone out, reduce the amount of time you soak the bread to a couple of hours and use an Oven Hack (page 41) to cook this bad boy.

HORROR MOVIES A to Z

To get ready for Thursday's ZOMBIE SPECTACULAR** at Nitehawk Cinema, here's an A-Z poem about horror films. 

A is for Alien, chest-bursting bitch


B is for Belial, makes baskets twitch


C's for Chatterer, cenobite #2


D is for Damien, this hanging's for you
