Cool information and well written. I love zombieresearch
Very informative, a necessary resource in the ongoing war against the undead.
Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog! I’ve actually come across your blog before and absolutely love it!
Is there any hope for Zombies? I mean, afterall, they’re people, too. Can they be cured? Are we even trying to look for a cure? There might be some serious bioethics issues here if we’re not even considering investing in medical research on their behalf. What is the Zombie Research Society’s position on this?
Extremely interesting blog, a necessary tool should be ever have a zombie outbreak. Added to my blog roll in order to spread the word.
I always thought the idea of the zombie came from the bible. Some verse in revelations that states the dead shall rise again…and the whole judgment thing…yada yada yada.
Zombies are (sort-of) mentioned in the bible, but not central players. But I wouldn’t say that it’s the start of a Zombie literary tradition. Will do a post on this, though. Very interesting. Good point, Janine!!!
Do Zombies arise from literature? On a storytelling dare one rainy weekend in early 19th century Switzerland, Mary Shelley created Frankenstein and another one of her buddies in the group, Lord Byron’s physician, wrote the first Vampire story (the story that inspired Bram Stoker years later). Who made up Zombies?
Great question, Gwynedd. I’m going to be doing a post on this in the near future, but the short answer is, no. The modern Zombie does not come out of any notable literary tradition.
Thanks for the kind words re: my Re-Animator review at Blog Lagoon. Here’s a collection of some more zombie reviews:
Keep up the nice work! I’m a fan.
