Due to time constraints and the purposes of my current research, I only read the first third of this book, but I look forward to reading the rest in the undefined future. ;) It's a collection of essays broken down into three sections examining the original, modern, and post-modern zombie. LOTS of historical and pop-culture goodies within!! Highly recommend!
