THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES

THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES:

THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES, by Steven C. Schlozman, M.D. Grand Central Publishing (www.HachetteBookGroup.com), 2011, 198 pp., $19.99. ISBN 978-0-446-56466-3

So what makes a zombie tick? What are they made of? How do they continue on like deranged Energizer bunnies?

ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES is a very well researched, very tongue-in-cheek look at what the medical field believes causes “zombies” (like the people who go watch the dumb zombie movies so prevalent these days).

Scientists call the condition that zombies suffer from “ANSD” or Ataxic Neurodegenerative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome. Of course, there are stages, from Stage I or onset of extreme hunger to Stage IV, complete loss of human characteristics or NLH (no longer human). Ethically, dead.

This is an endeavor borne out of much inspiration, too many zombie movies, a love of human physiology, and far too much time.

FLAMING ZEPPELINS

FLAMING ZEPPELINS:

FLAMING ZEPPELINS: The Adventures of Ned the Seal, by Joe R. Lansdale. Tachyon Publications (www.tachyonpublications.com), 2010, 285 pp., $14.95. ISBN 978-1-61696-002-5

FLAMING ZEPPELINS is a combination of two short novels, ZEPPELINS WEST (Subterranean Press, 2001) and FLAMING LONDON (Subterranean, 2005). The love of westerns and pulp fiction, comic books and Texas weirdness, come into play. The best campy fiction in all of America? Probably.
