909 The worse zombie book I've read so far is one called Drop Dead Gorgeous. It takes place in Ireland, and the intital story starts off fine, with people just dropping dead for no reason. Survivors gather together in varies parts of Ireland, and in that it's a good end of the world survivor story. But finally at the end of the book, only dead women are reanimating and it just gets all stupid. Plus it's clear after reading it, that it's just a set-up for a next book. LAME!

909 Pretty darn awesome is my middle name. Er, well it would be if I could have it my way. :o) Sweet! I'm so excited for reading and seeing both versions. Yay!

I hear there's a BBC production out there, or maybe a full-on feature film. I dunno the specifics but I'm wiling to find out. Thanks, Alexis! :O)

I cannot wait to get a copy of Pontypool and read it. Santa didn't bring it to me but that's cool. I'm getting anyways. Neener, neener Santa!

I've seen LOST TAPES, but hadn't heard of FREAK ENCOUNTERS until now. Thanks!

This is exactly one of the points Max Brooks made about the movie compared to the book.

909 I was at a panel for Max Brooks, during the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle this past March, and he basically stated that he's not worried about his book being marred by any film adapatation, because he's already written his book. He also mentioned something along the lines of it'll be a good zombie, without really tying it to his work. Nice guy though, fun panel.

Or at least a TV or cable series.

Oh yes! Came out around the end of March, or the beginning of April.

909 Breathers is about zombies meeting at a zombie support group, and the main character has a romantic relationship with another zombie. There's some really funny and well written scenes of violence and gore. It's a pro-zombie story, but still really fun to read between more intense, dramatic zombie books.

909 to Dana: LOVED Breathers. Really funny stuff, and well written. I hope there's a second one.

I thought I had replied in a timely manner but I haven't received one yet. Why not just send your mailing info to Max via a direct message here at Good Reads? Couldn't hurt. Looks like some are still receiving them. :o)

It's about a woman working at a hospital in Virginia during the civil war who needs to cross the country and get to Tacoma, WA. She takes an airship, goes by foot and train and river boat, finally on the DREADNOUGHT, a massive engine loaded to kickass. On the way there's intrigue, zombies, steampunk devices, and guns. :o)

It's a good read, with a nice unique zombie subplot. The author currently lives in Seattle, in which the book takes place, and since I live here too I couldn't wait to read this. It was a well-developed story, taking some historic liberties but CM Priest acknowledges this so you know she's not stupid just having fun with the time.

I'm currently reading, well just about done, with the follow-up to BONESHAKER, called DREADNOUGHT. It's bit more of a polished story with loads of action as it takes place during the civil war. Not a sequel to BONESHAKER, but more of a companion piece as the main character in DREADNOUGHT in on her way to Tacoma, WA to see a character featured in BONESHAKER.

Confused? :o) Don't be, just read.
