Zombies of the World is a relief from everything that’s wrong with most zombie guides. Unlike many other guides that are tedious and dry attempts to cash in on the undead, Zombies of the World is sharply written, wonderfully illustrated and designed, mercifully concise, and deeply influenced by zombie culture. And most important of all: it’s really fun to read.

The book also lists which humans (living ones, not dead ones) you should try to avoid if you’re trapped in a zombie attack. If you’re reading this book (or this review) then your chances of survival are already far better than that of the uninformed citizen.

One of the best pieces of zombie literature will finally hit the silver screen next year:
Paramount has announced they’ll be dropping their Brad Pitt-led zombie movie “World War Z” into theaters on December 21, 2012. The film is currently shooting with Marc Forster directing the Black List-approved script by J. Michael Straczynski (with rewrites by Matthew Michael Carnahan) that centers on a UN bureaucrat named Gerry Lane, who in the aftermath of the zombie war is asked to compile a complete report on the incident.
AMC announced that Frank Darabont was stepping down as showrunner for the hit series The Walking Dead. The show is in the midst of production of its second season, and the announcement has left AMC executives scrambling.
From Technorati news
According to New Scientist “researchers at Dermalog Identification Systems in Hamburg, Germany, have developed a way for a fingerprint scanner to differentiate between live and dead tissue.”Ostensibly designed to keep thieves from bypassing fingerprint scanners by severing fingers from authorized users, this system can also be of great help against intelligent zombie species. Talking Zombies are particularly clever and determined predators and would not hesitate to mutilate a victim to gain access to secure locations.
