Holding Up a (Grubby, Blood-stained) Mirror

The final column in my series of zombie-related writings is now available for your reading pleasure at THIS IS HORROR. I’ve written about the zombie genre at length – looking at how the genre has changed, and what (in my opinion) makes an undead tale worth reading. In this last article – HOLDING UP A (GRUBBY, BLOOD-STAINED) MIRROR – I look at why, after trying to quit the genre several times in the past, I keep coming back for more, and what it is about zombies that I find so fascinating/terrifying.

Thanks one last time to Michael and Bob for indulging my living dead-related ramblings.
