Do you do more of the same and risk being repetitive or expand the world and possibly lose sight of what you first wanted to achieve? Tricky. But thankfully Jesse Petersen hasn’t succumbed to any such […]

Some new trailer action for Walking Dead season 3 part deux. Can’t keep up? Zombies, prisons, the governor, and more messy deaths that you can count on a dozen pairs of grasping undead hands reaching for your head through a broken car window.

Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection by Don Roff and illustrated by Chris Lane (book review))

If you were faced with almost certain death, would you make the time to record it and leave it for future generations to learn from? I probably wouldn’t, I’d be too busy running away, screaming like a little girl and looking for somewhere to hole up while the Calvary comes. Part-diary, part-Blair Witch Project, ‘Zombies’ […]

If you like zombies and pick-your-own-adventures, keep on the following page. If you don’t, go back to the home page. It’s been about 20 years since I read a pick-your-own-adventure book. I remember as a young man, hiding under the covers with a torch, reading an ‘Indiana Jones’ adventure and being constantly devastated when I […]

And here’s […]

Warm Bodies zombie movie trailer.

The zombie invasion continues uninterrupted in this new film, Warm Bodies (based on Isaac Marion’s horror book), about a zombie-human love affair that might just be the cure for the undead plague sweeping the world.

World War Z first look.

The much troubled movie version of World War Z has just released their first footage to tickle your viewing taste buds. From what we can see here, it looks like the zombies are more in the hyper-fast super-predator mode of the Rage virus and I am Legend, rather than the slow shuffling corpses of The […]
