  13. Sorry, I forgot to add that I did an interview with E. Van Lowe, author of Never Slow Dance with a Zombie.

    Thanks again!

  14. I found another zombie mention in the book I was reading (I can't help it anymore, I'm attuned!). On page 87 (first paragraph) of Aprilynne Pike's Wings, Laurel acts like a zombie.



  15. Back again. I don't know if they're properly zombies, as they don't necessarily go for brains, but there are dead things throughout the whole Abhorsen series by Garth Nix. Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen are the book names, and they focus on protagonists in charge of sending magically-animated dead creatures back to real death. These creatures shuffle, are corpse-like, and are focused on devouring live people (and magic). If that's close enough to a description of zombies, count me in for more. If not, no matter. I just thought I'd mention them as I couldn't believe I'd overlooked the books before (they're among my favorites).


  16. Oh, and there's a short story about the same creatures in Garth Nix's Across The Wall. That is all.
