Zombie CSU

Jonathan Maberry's "Zombie CSU" has been out for a month now, but I didn't get to pick it up until tonight. Lucky me, I purchased it at a zombie panel discussion with the author & friends. A very entertaining evening. Discussion topics covered civil response, potential causes, fast vs. slow, best vs. worst, and a lady in the audience asking the panel if they agreed that the "scariest movie ever was The Wolfman Vs. Frankenstein". She also wondered why we didn't see more "zombies in moonlight". And for a moment, she seemed genuinely concerned that a zombie outbreak might be an imminent possibility. Anyway, I came home with the book, and a handful of gummy body parts.


Big site update is complete - Lots of new (and new-to-the-site) work, especially in the Graphic Design, Digital, and Hand-Drawn sections. I'm particularly fond of the Elvira postcard...but maybe that's just Halloween excitement bubbling up.

Keep an eye on this spot in October, by the way. Lots of bloggity goodness coming soon.

The Zed Word

I spent some time this weekend working on a Halloween music mix. As a result of my song-shuffling, the word "zombie" now looks like it's spelled wrong. In fact, "Z" doesn't even look like a real letter anymore. Help.
