  1. hha - I already own this book - so good luck to all of you! Max Brooks is the best! I can't wait until your September zombies event! I have a whole shelf (and working on the second shelf) of zombie books! love em!

  2. Definitely A! Because once you run out of ammo, then it's turns into C lol.

  3. Definitely firearms! It's shoot 'em in the head or nothing. Love me some zombies!


    I just launched my new horror blog. I need to get some zombies over there. Stop by some time:

  4. A of course. I'd feel much safer with an Uzi or shotgun and a canon at my compound. Shoot em up course I wouldn't turn down a machete.


  5. C: molotov cocktails!
    Burn those nasty zombies, burn them good!

  6. A! Haha. With lots of bullets!!!! :">

  7. Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!
    Definitely gotta go with A. Nothing stops a zombie like gettin' it's head blown off!
    But I do have to say I like Sullivan's idea of burnin' those zombies!

  8. I would go with A, then you could always go with records, (like in Shawn of the Dead.) LOL

  9. It would be A, of course. A flamethrower will pwn the zombie rebels in no time. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. As tempted as I am to choose C... I choose A, lol

  11. I'm going with C even though I think the coolest anti-zombie weapon is the katana that Tom uses in Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry!!

  12. This is a really funny book! Getting excited!!!!

  13. I would go with B... just because no one else will. And crowbars are fun...

  14. I'm going to choose c) improvised weapons - croquet mallet, rolling pin, umbrella, etc. because it's better to practice my zombie-slaying skills before I run out of gunpowder.

  15. Thank you for the giveaway. I choose B the Crow Bar. Quick, quiet, efficient.

  16. Well, that's easy! I have to have a shotgun with lots of bullets as it does a lot of damage. Shoot in the head or in the legs - to kill or to slow them down. I also have to have machete for close encounters to cut their heds off.
    Thank you for the giveaway :)

  17. B. melee weapons (specifically an axe)because: 1) guns will eventually run out of ammo and those brain-eating motherfuckers won't wait for you to reload. 2) it's fun to hear their bones crunch and the process is bloodier (P.S.=it's not that i hate guns, i actually like them, but in this situation i would prefer a well-sharpened axe)

  18. [Dead] Necessity is the mother of invention, so I'm going with *C*: Improvised Weapon:

    MAD's recipe for AntiPasto-Zombie Salad.
    100 gallons of Crisco Oil
    1/4 head of lettuce, chopped
    1/4 tsp real lemon juice
    *sardines optional

    As soon as zombies are sighted on the horizon, make yourself a nice, fresh crisp antipasto salad.

    Use 1/4 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp oil for
    *lite* dressing.

    Eat salad,listen to classical music, relax and calmly watch the zombies lumbering across the neighborhood.

    As soon as the Zs are within a block or so, take the remaining 99+ gallons of oil and pour it into a very wide, even swath around the perimeter of your home.

    Watch the zombies slip and slide while you
    sip a fine wine within the comfort & safety of your home. ;D

  19. I would sneak in a shotgun for sure but I choose C.
    I would use an umbrella for sure.
    It's like a fashion accessory.
    Because who doesn't wanna look their best while slaying zombies?

  20. I think an axe, with a side order of handgun

  21. B! When the ammo runs out, it could get awkward.
