Show me a zombie fan, and I’ll show you someone who has read The Zombie Survival Guide
by Max Brooks. Anyone who has read the ZSG can tell you how detailed and thorough it is – Max obviously did some serious research before he wrote it. Or did he?
Sure, the book has a zombie timeline in the back, which includes infamous moments in history most likely caused by a zombie outbreak (ex: Roanoke Island), but for the most part it’s written for survival in North America. Have you ever wondered what you would do in an outbreak if you didn’t have access to the supplies and weapons recommended by Brooks?
Someone has, and his name is Sean Page. Sean lives in the UK, and he realized one day that most people in the UK would be totally screwed in the event of a major zombie outbreak – less than 5% would survive. Being as dedicated to his country as he is, he decided to write a zombie survival guide for the UK. After all, “what do you do when the dead rise and the only weapons available are pub darts and cricket bats?” We are talking about an island after all (and I know you’re thinking of 28 Days Later right now, but that was living infected).
- Full analysis of the information currently available on the zombie virus, the undead creatures it creates, and most importantly, how to take them down.
- How to implement a comprehensive “90 Day Survival Plan” for you & your family including home fortification, securing supplies and even surviving a ghoul siege.
- Full and detailed guidelines on how to battle the undead, which weapons to use, where to hide out & how to survive in a country dominated by millions of bloodthirsty ghouls.
Everything you could possibly need to know in order to survive a zombie outbreak in British society, in every terrain, from the south up to the highlands.
In Sean’s words:
Our country is sleep walking towards a catastrophe – that is the day when an outbreak of zombies will reach critical mass and turn our green and pleasant land into a grey and shambling wasteland.
I can’t begin to tell you what a relief this handbook is; up until now, I have been worried about my friends and family in the UK surviving the inevitable zombie apocalypse. Even if you don’t have a use for this book, it’s still a great addition for any zombie media collection. (kind of like owning a copy of Ryan Mecum’s Zombie Haiku
) You’re not really a zombiephile if you have an incomplete zombie library. I’ll keep you updated on the release, but keep it in mind, just in case I get busy with a local outbreak…
