The Ultimate Book of Zombie Warfare and Survival


This month, Skyhorse is releasing a compendium of combat-centered excerpts from my zombie guides in an exciting new hardback titled The Ultimate Book of Zombie Warfare and Survival: A Combat Guide to the Walking Dead.

It makes a perfect gift for zombie fans, and arrives just in time for Halloween.  Look for “greatest hits” from The Zen of Zombie, Z.E.O., The Art of Zombie Warfare, The Code of the Zombie Pirate, and Zombies Vs. Nazis. 

Boaris Frankenswine

A couple of years ago, an excellent artist named J. Anthony Kosar did the zombie makeup for the trailer for my book Z.E.O. 

Today, Anthony is using his talents to raise funds for a grade school in Lemont, IL.  He has created a sculpture dubbed “Boaris Frankenswine” upon which one may bid in a fundraiser for the school.

J. Anthony Kosar and his creation

From Anthony’s release:

If you or anyone you know are interested in owning this one-of-a-kind 30″w x 30.5″h x 32″d custom life-size hand-sculpted and hand-painted Boaris Frankenswine sculpture by me, you can take part in the auction without even being at the event. Just contact Lisa Simone Porter at 630-235-3466 or by email: Lsimoneporter@aaart.edu on or before the event on Saturday March 19, 2011. According to Lisa Simone Porter, you will be connected to the auction by phone, able to bid live, and possibly win this original work of art, all while helping out a good cause.  More info on the event: http://www.galainlemont.com/

Z.E.O. book trailer filming

This past weekend, the good folks at Axiom Megamedia invited me along for the filming of the Z.E.O. book trailer.  (The trailer for The Zen of Zombie has over 230,000 YouTube views, and really helped to get the book out there.  We’re all hoping this one will be similary successful for Z.E.O.)  It was a really great experience.  The actors, makeup, and wardrobe people were very cool, and totally into the project. 

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos I took:
