Zombie CSU

When last I checked, there were approximately one gajillion zombie books on the shelves at my local Barnes & Noble.  There are zombie survival guides, zombie haiku and, one of my favorites, The Zen of Zombie.  So with all of the zombie-related books on the shelves (and we won’t even get into the plethora of novels featuring the undead), how do you know which one to spend your hard-earned (and these days, incresingly disappearing) money on?

Well… you don’t.

But if you’re going to just jump in and grab a random zombie book, you could do worse than Zombie CSU: The Foresics of the Living Dead by John Maberry.

Maberry, a Bram Stoker Award-winner, interviews scientists and forensic experts, and detectives to ask “What if?”  From Amazon:

Employing hard science and solid police work not—to mention jaw-dropping (literally!) humor—Zombie CSU is the only guide you need to make it through alive—not undead. At last you can:

Investigate zombie crime scenes, collecting and analyzing evidence of zombie attacks, and create a “murder book”

Examine the psychology of the zombie and develop a perp profile.

Observe medical science pros as they probe felled zombies for forensic clues.

Devise a zombie apocalypse survival scorecard and more!

Of course, like any zombie book worth its weight, Zombie CSU also includes a list of must-see zombie movies as well as tips on killing zombies yourself.  ‘Cuz you can’t answer “What if?” if you’re not also gonna tell people “What next.”

  1. Thanks for the shout-out for my book. I’m currently doing panel discussions at bookstores with some of the experts that I used in the book and we’ve been having a lot of weird fun talking zombies.

  2. Zombie CSU has a lot of illustrations from a variety of disturbed artists, too. I had a great time at one of his panel discussions, too. (Philadelphia area) The panelists included a neurological specialist and a zombie movie extra. These guys knew zombie culture. I think Jonathan will be at Zombie Fest in Pittsburgh next weekend, too. Happy Halloween.
