Zombies. We all love them (or fear them). They are undead creatures that come in a variety of flavors such as dead bodies that are animated by magic, or the more modern that is the result of other methods, such as viruses. Recently, after reading through some of the reviews of my Mad Swine series, I noticed many comments that refer to my zombies as ‘mostly zombies’ or ‘zombies, sort of’ and it sparked a conversation with a close friend about how people think of or categorize zombies. And more importantly, are zombies better than ‘zombies, sort of’?
I am sure the topic has been heavily debated in the darkest corners of the shadiest internet forums. There are those that draw their line in the sand and proclaim that Romero’s slow walkers are the only true zombies, while others, tend to have a more loose interpretation of what is a zombie, while others just don’t give a crap or care about the distinction (this is where I tend to pitch my tent) as long as they are entertained.
For me, it is a touch question to answer. I have no bias. I love my zombies in all flavors. Each has its pros or cons, but in the end, I am entertained, and to me, that is what is most important. That said, I’d like to hear from the fans, as well as my fellow author, their thoughts on the subject.
