I love classical literature, but I’m not really a fan of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I think I was put off the original by all the modern takes of the story, especially the various movies with the Scrooge theme. So, I don’t know what the hell I was thinking when I willingly spent several hours reading three different [...]
A little over a week ago (Oct 29th, 2011), I went to the Flint Horror Convention in Michigan. This was the first year for the event, but you would never have guessed it. Geary Roe, Chris Ringler and some of their friends had the brilliant idea to create a special annual event for all the horror fans in Michigan. Their [...]

f you’re my age, you often sit around fondly remembering the “Choose Your Own Adventure” book series that entertained us so much when we were young. And if you love zombies as much as I do, you’ve probably asked yourself, “Why weren’t there any zombie ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ books?” Well, ask yourself no longer, because Chooseomatic books has brought us “Zombocalypse Now,” a totally sweet and surprisingly thick book written in the “Choose Your Own Adventure” style that is, quite simply, a fantastic zombie book.
Each page of “Zombocalypse Now” offers you the results of your previous decisions, and (hopefully) gives you a set of actions for you to choose from – creating a large and complex web of storylines that navigate their way through the book. At almost 300 pages, “Zombocalypse Now” puts you in the role of the protagonist, a stuffed bunny who quickly discovers that his internet date isn’t going as well as he hoped it would when his date begins to crave brains. From those beginnings, you navigate your way through a slew of close calls, hard decisions and surprise plot twists in your quest to find an ending that doesn’t actually result in you dying. (The book advertises that out of 112 possible endings, there are at least seven in which you don’t die.)
f there’s one problem with Christmas, is that same problem which plagues nearly every holiday – a sad and somewhat suspicious lack of zombies. Long relegated to Halloween (a silly holiday really), zombies are forced to share their holiday with pirates, ninjas, and worst of all, mimes. Thankfully, author Michael Spradlin is dragging zombies, kicking and moaning, from Halloween to Christmas with his jolly book of zombie Christmas carols, “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies!”
