Happy Halloween

Halloween is the perfect time to read scary stories, and what could be scarier than...Zombies? Zombies, those fictional undead creatures regularly encountered in fantasy and horror stories, are usually depicted as mindless, re-animated corpses with a hunger for human flesh, (often with a penchant for human brains). They are everywhere. They have invaded comics, gaming, movies, T.V series, books, even classic literature! A good example is the Pride and Prejudice Zombies series. The definitive Zombie story to read  is World War Z, (watch out for the movie, due for release in Australia, June 2013). The author, Max Brooks has also written a scary graphic novel,  The Zombie survival guide: Recorded attacks.  If you prefer short scary stories, or are uneducated about the undead, try the Zombie: An  anthology of the undead which offers a range of perspectives how different authors perceive zombies.

Other stories about Zombies to devour this Halloween include:
