en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 03 Sep 2010
"Hilarious, informative, and weird, The Proper Care and Feeding of Zombies is the best kind of creepy fun. Mac Montandon does for zombie books what Shaun of the Dead did for movies. Delicious!"
Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Patient Zero and Rot & Ruin The ultimate guide to understanding how the other half lives (or not)
Don′t make the mistake of heading into a zombified world underprepared and underinformed! A scientific exploration of how our undead brethren function is a must (our very survival depends on it!), so we have to understand zombies′ speed (slow and sometimes fast), diet (brains, brains, brains), and sleep habits (hardly at all). More than other monsters, zombies are close to being us. They are us, in fact, just a little more decomposed. Unfortunately, in the end, we still have to shoot ′em in the head.
Discover how to:
  • Provide a suitable environment for a zombie
  • Decide which kind of zombie is right for your family
  • Calculate the benefits of an all–brain–and–human–flesh diet
  • Give your zombie the plodding, lumbering exercise it needs
  • Predict the spread of zombie infections in your town and state

Public țintă

The primary readership––zombie–philes––are generally fans of horror in all its iterations––movies, books, comics, and videogames.  Whereas books that appeal to vampire fans tend to be romantic and earnest, zombie fans tend to be pop–culture savvy, ironic, and discerning.  In past years, zombie books have sold incredibly especially well during two promotional windows: Halloween and Christmas.
