The Real Zombies and Haitian Law


A law that seems to condemn zombie creation went into effect in Haiti in 1835 [ref]. Article 246 of the Haitian Penal Code classifies the administration of a substance that creates a prolonged period of lethargy without causing death as attempted murder. If the substance causes the appearance of death and results in the burial of the victim, the act is classified as murder.

Voodoo Zombie Haitian Penal Code:

Article 249. It shall also be qualified as attempted murder the employment which may be made against any person of substances which, without causing actual death, produce a lethargic coma more or less prolonged. If, after the person had been buried, the act shall be considered murder no matter what result follows.

The methods of creating and controlling zombies vary among bokors. Some bokors use blood and hair from their victims in conjunction with voodoo dolls to zombify their victims. Others methods of zombification involve a specially prepared concoction of mystical herbs, in addition to human and animal parts (sometimes called ZOMBIE POWDER).


Tales of real zombies the walking dead have long been associated with ghostly tales and voodoo hoodoo secrets of the great south. From stories of Zombie soldiers fighting the great war of the States. And to terrifying tales of those of Zombie babies being born dead from the wombs of living mothers.

A mechanically driven human corpse.

"A name given by certain primitive, superstitious peoples, particularly in certain sections of Haiti, to disinterred human corpses endowed by sorcery with power to carry out in a mechanical way the wishes of the sorcerer. It is sometimes also applied to the supernatural power or essence which these superstitious practitioners believe may enter and reanimate the dead body. An article of the Penal Code of Haiti makes the practice of Zombieism a criminal offense."


"Originally in West African voodoo cults, the deity of the python; hence in Haiti and the southern U. S., the snake deity of voodo rite. The supernatural power or essence which it is believed may enter into and reanimate a dead body; also, a corpse so reanimated. A Zombi is a soulless human corpse, still dead, but taken from the grave and endowed by sorcery with a mechanical semblance of life-it is a dead body, which is made to walk and act and move as if it were alive."

Paranormal Ghost filled tales of voodoo - hoodoo Religion and zombies, and strange Urban Legends perpetrate a type of folklore or "Fakelore", endlessly circulated by word of mouth oral tales through generations. They are often repeated in news stories articles and widely distributed by e-mail.

American Zombie

Yes they are even often found on many web sites such as this one. Please be fore warned, that not everything you read is the truth! And such is the Tales of Voodoo and Hoodoo magic rituals to RAISE the dead and those real Queens and real Zombies in America.

By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh


Growing up in Texas you hear many old stories of the glory old days of the South. About how the great civil war effect us all. You also hear ghost stories and chilling stories from you Grand-daddy's and old front porch Granny's who know just how to frighten children who don't know any better. Their haunted stories are the stuff that real good campfire ghost stories are all about.

True Urban Legends or just a bunch of great Zombie stories that always get better with the second telling are often spoken of in hushed tones in the south. People round her are never afraid to talk about ghosts. But to pry them to speak of Voodoo and Hoodoo. The Dead that do not stay in their graves and the many curses and ways that Zombie makers made a fortune selling slaves made from the dead corpses of the Confederate army of Lee and the Union's Yankee smelling dead. ALSO PLEASE SEE: Baron Samedi: The Voodoo God Of Zombies And The Dead

Many Voodoo Hoodoo Kings and Queens lived in the great southern heat of the hot summers of late 1800's. They practiced their black Magic from Florida to the coats of CaliforniA and New Orleans to Boston. Mixing up dead things in a big black stew pot, to grinding up corpses and zombie fingers and toes to make special Zombie Brand powders that only the very rich and evil could afford alone. ALSO SEE: The Real Zombie: Zombies In Just Plain English

Some did good helping those in need and others did themselves good by selling powders and ju-ju's and things that would actually make you really ill to think about. The brand of voodoo that was happening in this golden era of zombie time gave birth to many strange tales and over grown stories of how many of the from the great War between the states had made these voodoo hoodooing people very rich and well respected. And certainly important. These half white - half black Creole Queens and Kings plied their special dark swamp medicines amulets, charms and zombiefied wares from coat to coast after the Yankee President Grant took the White House.

The deep dark secrets of a Voodoo Hoodoo person at the time was always well accepted. And these special Creole people were never more sought after and revered then those of the Great White Mamba's who's names are still remembered today. The old red bricked crumbling white washed Tomb of Marie Laveau is the spot where many say she still grants wishes from beyond the grave. But only if you promise to her to come back to the tomb no later then one year and a day. If you do not show up in the allotted time then you might just find that you loose all you gained. And you are cursed because the one you love will become a real zombie when they die.

May believe in certain voodoo hoodoo circles of late that real Zombification came to America through the teachings of Marie Laveau the Voodoo Queen Of New Orleans. Others believe it was her teacher and mentor Dr. John or that of the Great Texan Voodoo Queen Black' Cat Mama Couteaux.

Zombies and making them no matter how many DVD's you seen documentaries and even books you read never fully explain the dark twitted ritual and of how a real New Orleans and or Texas style zombie is truly made.

the old spells that they speak of in my part of the world seem to have actually originated from Mama Black' Cat Couteax. but if you listen to most of the stories they elude to the fact that she was actually taught by a Great Voodoo hoodoo King from New Orleans who had a secrets circle of Voodoo Hoodoo queens that gave him all their persona attentions as they sat at his knee begging them to teach them more.



From his harem many great Voodoo Queens have arisen. These his dark beauties the evil devil marked scandalous women that alone he trusted with his Gris- gris secrets and potions that will kill the healthiest man or beast in seconds. Only to be risen from the dead by his secret knowledge of the dark forbidden arts of the voodoo Hoodoo only he could make.

Marie Laveau, Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. She alone many believe is his greatest and most notable student. Laveau once said of Dr. John, that no man living was or ever will be as powerful as the many dark tricks and secrets he knows. And that's just being able to bring the dead back to life to do his bidding alone. The Voodoo Dr. a real Reverend of Zombies as one might call him Knew of no less then 100 spells and hexes to turn people into the walking dead. Laveau has been known to have only passed down 2 of his secrets. But their is believed to be a hand written book penned by Dr. John himself that tells all 100 secrets.




The most famous hideous blackroot magic hex and spell book of Dr. John's Zombification techniques is said to be hidden walled up in a secret evil place. Local voodoosants often tell of how Dr. John kept deep dark secrets and the he never really trusted no one living, but Madame Delphine Lalaurie, alone. After all she is the God Mother and wet nurse to the Devil baby of New Orleans.

Lalaurie was thought to have as many claimed with her diabolical husband tortured many helpless individual in her attic on governor Nichols street and Royal Street in New Orleans. But Recent new discoveries are starting to surface from my research that these poor individuals that many saw with organs out side of their bodies and gruesome looking individual were actually zombies that she hid away that her husband used to experiment on. As far fetched as it sounds it might just be the truth.

Black' Cat Mama Couteax was a real voodoo Hoodoo queen in Marshall, Texas. The stories of here in the state are often told as far away as Abilene and forth Worth. They say she even rode out the Great Storm of 1900 in a row boat. the woman was said to have been married to her zombie Lover. The Dead Mamba husband zombie was and is said to be still around and guards the treasures she amassed.

There is also the Stories of the voodoo queen in Galveston Texas who made for the Pirate King of New Orleans an army of the living dead. It is believed that she zombiefied him at his death and one day The Zombie Pirate King of Laffite will return to claim his Island in the Eye of a hurricane.

Mary Ellen Pleasant They called her The Grande Zombie Making Queen Of The West!




Mary Ellen Pleasant (died January 4, 1904) was a 19th Century female entrepreneur of partial African descent who used her fortune to further abolition. She worked on the Underground Railroad across many states and then helped bring it to California during the Gold Rush Era. She was a friend and financial supporter of John Brown and well known in abolitionist circles. After the Civil War she took her battles to the courts and won several civil rights victories, one of which was cited and upheld in the 1980’s and resulted in her being called, “The Mother of Human Rights in California”. But many do know the great dark secrets she kept. and that she being one of Dr. Johns greatest pupils pride more secrets from him then did any of her contemporaries.

The old stories handed down to us often tell how she was Dr. John's favorite lover. Supposedly his zombification book was hidden in the Lalarie Mansion. after the great fire one dark night Pleasent herself is said to have been seen digging in the building and carrying out some charred papers bound tight with the skin of a cotton mouth snake. those that are of her secret voodoo society maintain that no papers of zombification exist except one document that contains no less then 3 spells to turn a living man into a zombie on the spot. If there were any other states Mama Sallie of Compton, California. That's all she left us. If more spells and they were in her possession then they are hidden fast away.

This the dark book of powerful voodoo secrets, Pleasant kept is called "Pleasant Book of Dark Deeds", and it is kept under lock and key in secret vault in Marin County, California. The book is reported to contain spells handed down generations past and some on zombification are said to be included including personal writing of how Pleaasant Made an army of Zombies to help build the city.

Dr. John's Favorite of all who most vied for all his his attention was a very young Voodoo Queen of great beauty. He called her "Little Sister Sally" just because he liked that name, and the way it rolled of his tongue. Sally who real name was Alice Slowe Jefferson was the youngest voodoo queen ordained and personally taught by him alone. She was also Zombified alive as was Dr. John.

He taught her his secrets only on dark of the moon nights. And they were often seen many say standing at the tomb of Marie Laveau still appearing very much alive and laughing to this day. But the Voodoosants of Voodoo King Armando, they say she was his lover until the day he died. Though he was advanced in his age she was a mere girl of 12 when he took her into his fold.

Dr. John and little sister Sally


Many believe it she that has his Dark book filled with all of the 100 plus spells to zombifiy someone. Many of the secret society Dr. John, believe she is the only complete Zombie Queen of them all. That through some dark trick, mysterious spell that Dr. John alone perfected in St. Louis Cemetery Number 2. The exotic Creole beauty, the Daughter of a rich Plantation owner, she alone is the worlds most perfect ever youthful living Zombie Queen. Those of Armando's Societies that will tell you in hushed tones will say. That it she that made him become a zombie on the bed in which he died. And in turn he did the same to her. But did it on her 17th birthday so she would never have to fear the passage of time.


Secrets of A Powerful Voodoo Queens of how they made their Zombies are often the best kept secrets of all voodoo hoodoo societies.


You can often find out what the ritual entails but never the actual secret spoken chants and curses.

Many Southern zombie making ritual usually consist of digging up a fresh corpse from it's tomb or deep grave. The body is then fed strange potions and whispered to in strange chants. Many individuals who have witnessed the evil dark deed say if it is disturbing to view. You stand frozen in the shadows as a voyeur to some devil dark secret satan spell. You see a recently dead man being made into a zombie before your eyes. Imagine the image of a beautiful Queen riding a rotting corpse like a wild banshee having dark magical sex in a graveyard. Certainly this you will never forget. Imagine the strange image as candles flair and mosquitoes bite hard into you skin.

Then the spell comes to conclusion as the zombie corpse comes to life. at that moment the voodoo queen takes him into what seems to be a deep kiss. and bites off his tongue to make him her eternal slave.


From what we can ascertain from the voodoo tales that Dr. John the mad genius made over 100 attempts before he created the perfect zombie juices and powders to make a living breathing zombie that will not die age and be truly mortally immortal.

The most dangerous of zombies are those that stay an infant. Voodoo Midwife Voodoo queens often played this cruel trick on unsuspecting victims. They would as anyone would sit between the legs of the soon to be mother. And chanting a secret spell. When the child was emerging from the womb they would snatch them up at the second of birth. The cunning Midwife Queen would break the child's neck then bite off the tip of it's tongue as it soul hung between the point of living and dead. Thus making the enfant diabolic as they were called.

Voodoo hoodoo societies in New Orleans say from this voodoo spell the secrets to eternal life from black magic spells was born. And that the demon zombie children straight from the womb never aged as mere mortals did. These always lovely young girls took over 30 years to grow into a girl or boy in its teens. Many tell that is why Marie laveau a never grew old that she was of zombie birth. Which Dr. John had performed her zombification at birth himself.


In the West, zombies may be considered the stuff of Hollywood B films but in Haiti they're part of everyday life. Zombies are taken so seriously here that turning someone into one carries the same penalty as murder. But, as our documentary this week shows, outlawing the practice is doing little to stop it. We look at how Haiti's troubled political climate is encouraging child sacrifice and murder.

Zombies by voodoo means are made for many reasons. For power control and for slave labor that no one can fault you own. To own a zombie just meant that the dead worked for free. They did eat but not as often and not what people ate.


Zombie Gumbo is a concoction that they say Black' Cat Mama Couteaux made to feed her zombie army each month. it consisted usually of dead animals found on side of the road, onion peelings and and scraps the dogs would not eat.

Laveau's is said to have fade her zombies a fine gumbo made with fish heads scales and bones and any thing except banana peels which tended to constipate a zombie.

Often the story of not feeding salt to a zombie is actually over played. And yes it can destroy a zombie but if given to them in moderation it tends to keep a zombie frozen for a few years until needed. A full dose of pure white salt and that's about a full teaspoon today would put an end to animated corpse in a minute or less. They usually fall to the ground with violent convulsions and all the fluid drains from their bodies.



Real Zombie Powder: The supposed Ingredients and The Method


The Voodoo hoodoo Queens kings priests and priestess's and tribal shamans and medicine men amongst the slaves created a unique voodoo hoodoo serum. This Serum gives all the effects of death. A form of this serum is called Zombie Powder. Religion Voodoo" An Article In The 1995 A.D. August Edition Of "Focus," The Serum Contains:

One MURDERED mans Human Skull And Assorted Bones from a water rat, a cat that is pure white, an iguana tail, the teeth of a dead man 19 years dead. a good dose of pure Vegetable Oil. And a dash or two of Datura.

Two Blue Agama Lizards of the male sex. If you can't have the lizards sex or personally do not know stop here now.

One Big Toad Called 'Crapaud Bonga' (Bufo Marinus). It must weigh 1 lb.

One Sea Snake (Polychaete Worm) brain and sex organ.

A Sprig F Tcha-Tch, "Albizzia"

Several Pods Of Itching Pea, "Pois Gratter"

Two (Preferably Female) Puffer Fish Of Which Must Be The Sea Toad, "Crapaud De Mer" (Spheroeroides Testudineus).

Add Tarantulas, Millipedes And White Tree Frogs To Taste.

The Method:
The potion or Coup Poudre should be prepared in June, when the female Puffer fish contains its greatest quantities of Tetrodotoxin. Be careful not to touch the mixture at any time as it can act through skin. Ingredients 8 to 12

Tie the snake to the Toad's leg, put them in a jar and bury it.

This is so that, the Toad "dies of rage", which increases the concentration of its poison. Place the skull in a fire with Thunderstone and some blessed oil and burn till black.

Roast the animal ingredients and grind with the uncooked plants in a pestle and mortar. Add unheated shaving of the bones.

A few sacred spell (Juju), now grind your mixture to fine powder, place in a jar and bury in the coffin with the rest of your source skeleton if possible for three days.

You now have your Coup Poudre or Zombie Potion. It is traditionally sprinkled in a cross on the threshold of the target. It can only be introduced by touching the skin. If taken internally death will be final.

Upon the Zombie's awaking from the grips of death one must bite the tip or as some Voodoo Hoodoo prefer the entire tongue. the tongue should be kept always in the company of the person who owns the zombie. and this is said because the zombie will obey only that who has it.

If the tongue is swallowed the the zombie is bound only to the Boukur, King queen Or voodoosant that created it. but the Zombie will obey someone else's commands if their zombie master ( the maker who swallowed the tongue tells them too.

But this is only depending on what of the supposed 100 rituals of Dr. John you wish to believe.

Zombie Powder Finished: How To Use

Zombie Myth A more certain method is to sprinkle it down the back or in the shoe. The victim will collapse, apparently "Dead". House slaves would then show the slave masters that the slaves were "Dead". The slave master would not bother to bury the slaves. He would leave that to the Slaves to take care of the burial. However, the slave masters would come to the funeral to make sure the slaves are truly dead. The slaves would bury the "Dead" slave in a shallow grave face down, with a hole dug to create an air pocket. This is to increase breathing space for a few hours.

Sometimes they would put hollow twigs in the grave head stone in the form of a cross, so that they can breathe, giving the appearance of a heap of dirt with a cross made from bamboo, Which can be hollowed out. This apparent death, examination, would result in the appearance of no pulse. Because the drug reduces circulation, gave the slave master the impression that the slaves had a fight amongst themselves, one was killed and buried and it was over. Later that night, the slaves would dig up the grave and free the "Dead Slaves," telling them to run and go amongst the native Americans, until they escape into another state.

When the "Dead" slaves were Seen in other towns and reported to the slave owner as being alive and kicking. The slave owner would not believe the report because they saw the slaves, dead and buried. They would check the grave, which would be empty. This would frighten the slave masters. Thus, began the many Zombie and living dead stories, as well as the slang Spook."

However, this (Sample) Ifa verse would probably have been executed before a single ingredient of the Voodoo serum had been prepared. The Voodoo priest that is going to mix the Zombie serum would have consulted a senior Ifa priest for divination about every single Ingredient of the Voodoo serum. He would be asked to perform sacrifice so that all his Zombie Serum would end up saving lives and slaves instead of killing them. Note the sample Ifa verse below is not unique, it will differ from region to region and from one Ifa priest to another. It is just a sample to emphasis the point.

In the world today there is no book other then Real Zombies, the Living Dead, and Creatures of the Apocalypse Brad Steiger more then just comprehensive and unsettling study.

In truth I recommend this as it is the first generation Zombie Book Of It's kind!

His mission I believe is to dispel the normal sorted beliefs and misunderstandings and the more then just common depictions of what we believe to be the real zombies today.

In this book I feel Mr. Steiger has set a high precedence for others to dare only to follow.

I believe that this book will be the standard by which what many new zombie trends will now forever emulate, copy and measure.

Real Zombies, the Living Dead, and Creatures of the Apocalypse


This more then fascinating assorted collection I believe when it comes to real information on zombie truths this book bites all the others heads off"!

The many fact filled pages includes the intense researched stories by Haunted America Tours Senior writer Alyne Pustanio of the evil spawn of Satan, The elusive supernatural "Devil Baby of Bourbon Street", a monstrous creature complete with sharp horns and a long pointed tail that still lurks in the shadows of the New Orleans dark haunted alleys and neighborhood streets. And what of her haunted tale of Violette- New Orleans True Zombie Child. A tale so horrid of the recent past it could be ripped from the headlines of today.

Folklorist and occultist Alyne Pustanio is a New Orleans whose roots go deep into the local culture; it is from that proverbial “gumbo” that she draws her inspiration for most of her tales of terror and fascination.

As a writer, historian and folklorist, and one of the founding Head Staff members of Haunted America Tours, Alyne Pustanio has contributed many of the true tales of terror and fascination that have been featured on its pages over the past several years.

A New Orleans native, her roots go deep into the local culture: a descendant of Portuguese and Italian immigrants who can trace their ancestors to European gypsies, she was exposed to the mysteries of the occult at an early age. Two great-grandmothers were gifted and sought-out mediums and readers; one other relative is a verified psychic; and her mother, an avid spiritualist for most of her life, led forays into the world of the paranormal and unexplained when Alyne was still a schoolgirl. It was at her mother's side that Alyne met some of the early paranormal greats such as Hans Holzer, Lori Poe and Jeanne Dixon.

First-hand experiences with the denizens of the unseen (she has lived in haunted houses and around haunted people all her life) and her own intuitive-psychic nature caused her fascination with the paranormal to grow; her avocations in folklore and history only complimented this interest and have produced a passion that is immediately obvious in all her writings. She has contributed studies that have spanned many traditions -- from Marie Laveau, voodoo and the culture of New Orleans to essays in the magical traditions of Europe to real-life accounts of harrowing hauntings, and beyond.

Recently, her interest and dedication to all things paranormal has produced a collaboration between Haunted America Tours and one of the newest and fastest growing science/paranormal/fantasy conventions in the region, BabelCon. Under her direction Haunted America Tours will anchor the paranormal track for this convention in July of 2008 with many of the best-known investigative groups and experts in the field already slated to participate.

When she is not writing or developing material for Haunted America Tours, Alyne enjoys participating in Renaissance festivals and medieval faires throughout the region where she has presented her own experiential discovery of her gypsy heritage with others dedicated to the gypsy way. A November child, she loves dark, brooding, grey days, cold weather and thunderstorms; anything to do with the British Isles, the American Civil War and New York City; reads the works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Edgar Allan Poe, Christina Rosetti, and Tolkien, admires Milton, Blake and Machiavelli, and is a student of modern writers John Michael Greer and Joseph Liewsienski. Other than Haunted America Tours her favorite website is School of the Seasons; she roots for the Yankees and the New York Giants; enjoys watching the paranormal on TV (prefers "Most Haunted" to "Ghost Hunters") and at the movies; and likes to garden. Her favorite Mardi Gras parade is the Krewe of Mid-City, her favorite color is black and she lives in New Orleans with her teenage daughter, a black dog named Shadow and a black cat named Sweetie.

Black Mama Couteau the often thought of as very strange and real evil Texas Voodoo Queen and the stories of her and the great zombie war, this tale is told by by Lisa Lee Harp Waugh the well known American Necromancer.

In Waugh's recounting of these Texas tales and obscure stories that she heard growing up in the very haunted town of Marshall, Texas. Waugh relates a curios snippet of an army of many hundreds of zombie soldiers battling for the supremacy of their queen. And of what dark deeds a real Zombie making conjuror woman must do.

BY Bob Curran (Author), Ian Daniels (Illustrator)
New Page Books; September 2008

Reviewed by Christopher Balzano

In the paranormal world there is a movement to classify and understand everything. Local and national titles look to shed light on all the dark places of the world and demystify what we have always had a hard time explaining. What happens to those elements of the supernatural that cannot be classified easily? They often get lumped together and fall into the heading, the unexplained within the unexplained. Zombie stories usually end up there, and Zombies: A Field Guide to the Walking Dead by Bob Curran looks to explore that crack and see where these stories might live.

Dr. Curran has long been known in the field for his titles on British myths and vampires, and he has previously touched upon the subject of the undead, but Zombies is his first work to explore the phenomena from a literary and sociological angle. It would be hard to give a complete picture of the history of the undead without this approach, and Curran’s academic side allows the reader to be firmly placed with both feet on the ground while understanding there might be something behind the folklore that rings true.

Zombies tells the history of the supernatural being, from ancient Egypt to fairly modern times, all the while offering the reader a chance to admit the stories might be nothing more than the remains of oral history. Zombies are such a crucial element to some cultures, and the collected accounts say something about the societies that create them. In uncovering some of these old myths, Curran has a platform to discuss the issues of those cultures. This at times can be redundant, but the stories themselves keep the reader invested.

One of the more historically relevant chapters of the book recounts the people who made their living in the early days of European medicine by stealing bodies. From hopeful young doctors to kings of the lower classes, these hunters looked to advance our understanding of the human body, and line their own pockets, by digging up and dragging the dead. Curran lifts some of the darker characters in history to the level of twisted Robin Hoods, and the comparison is both eerie and literary brilliant. The same hand skillfully tells the tales of the half-dead, or criminals who were unsuccessfully executed and lived to tell the tale.

The book follows in the tradition of field guides by New Page and other publishers who merely look to get the information out there, and for that reason should not be purchased by people looking to zombie hunt or to use it as an actual field guide. There is little mention of stories in the past decade and very little attention given to American cases. The book is much more about the big picture and less about scary stories to keep you up at night.

Zombies: A Field Guide to the Walking Dead is proof there is still room in the paranormal field for books that look at the old mysteries, and acts as a reference book for people who have a general interest in the unexplained. Dr. Bob Curran uses the vehicle of zombies to tell is something about ourselves, and if zombies do in fact say something about who we are, perhaps the fact they continue to escape a clear classification points to just how mysterious our civilization is.

5. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Zombies By Nathan Robert Brown


The Complete Idiot's Guide to Zombies


The "New Vampire"... The Zombie is now a creature of great debate. Is it a poor spawn of a half brain dead Vampire?

The Complete Idiot's Guides(r) have explored the world of vampires, werewolves, the paranormal, and now the latest book in the "creepy" series is The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to Zombies.

This book brings the world of zombies chillingly to life-in a manner of speaking-covering everything readers need to know about them.

The book includes:

•The voodoo zombie, the viral zombie, and the whole zombie family.

•What zombies and the delicious fear of them say about human psychology.

•Zombies in American culture: in film, from the Romero classics to the Living Dead flicks that are so bad they're good, and in fiction, video games, comics, and more!

•The zombie survival phenomenon-of course they're not real, but that doesn't stop people from having loads of fun pretending they are.

6. Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead


Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead


From a master of zombie fiction and a founding father of “splatterpunk” The one and oly King og Horrorr Kings Stephen King that is. Now comes a mind-bending anthology of 32 new and classic stories from both renowned horror writers and rising stars.

In the tradition of Black Dog & Leventhal's bestselling

Vampires and Ghosts, this anthology of 32 stories is set in a world where the dead have risen from the grave to consume the living. This rich collection showcases the best of the genre—from short-story masters such as Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, and Poppy Z. Brite; zombie stalwarts such as David J. Schow and Jack Ketchum; “bizarro” founders such as Carlton Mellick III; and popular up-and-comers such as Max Brooks and S.G. Browne—and will satisfy the insatiable hunger of zombie fans everywhere.

A series of captivating essays about zombies in folklore and in popular culture by John Skipp, award-winning zombie anthologist and author, enrich an already extraordinary collection by discussing the past, present, and future of the living dead. And a resources section encompassing the best of long-form fiction, movies, websites, games is included for any reader interested in learning more about the wider world of the undead.

Sure to sate the hungriest zombie fans with classic as well as contemporary servings of tangled entrails and other unspeakable meals, Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead will be shambling out of bookstores in October 2009.


About the Author
John Skipp is a New York Times bestselling author and editor, whose 18 books have sold millions of copies in a dozen languages worldwide.  His first anthology, Book of the Dead, laid the foundation in 1989 for modern zombie literature, bringing George Romero's vision of the dead next door to new levels of scope and intensity.  He later edited three more zombie anthologies, including Mondo Zombie, which won the Bram Stoker Award for best anthology.  From splatterpunk founding father to hilarious elder statesman, Skipp's legendary horror works include The Light At The End, The Scream, Jake's Wake, and The Long Last Call.

Customer Reviews

Great Collection as long as you haven't already read a lot of zombie anthologies...5
Skipp's tastes and skills as an editor have evolved considerably since his Book of the Dead collaboration days with Spector. That seminal collection and its sequel Still Dead are highly prized collectibles viewed as being the foundations of modern zombie lit. (Those who have read stuff from Permuted Press' den of hacks understand what a mixed legacy this is...) The tendency towards mindlessly excessive sensationalism and lack of meaning in modern zombie fiction also can be seen in the first two Skipp & Spector books, so as anthologies they were both awesome and also a bit tiresome.

The years since these initial releases have not been kind to those zombie fans who value both literary quality and horror. Basically we have Brooks' World War Z and arguably David Wellington. Besides these two, we have mounds and mounds of shoot-em-up rip their guts out stuff that is part of the bipolar nature of the horror section at Borders. We have lame romantically idealized vampire / demon bodice rippers meant to appeal to goth chicks cutting junior hs classes, and at the other extreme there's zombiepocalypse end o the world entrail munching stuff meant to appeal to the nerdy guys reading Fangoria and Guns N Ammo in the back of study hall. It was pretty interesting to see a new Skipp anthology out; would he continue to wallow in nihilistic gore or would he seek a new path?

I am happy to say this new collection is balanced and entertaining, and shows a lot of talent without being much gentler or kinder. There is a two section divide, "classic" zombie tales with usually single cases of reanimated corpses like the old fashioned pre-Romero stuff, and then the more modern zombie plague stuff. To be precise, we have 12 "classics" and 20 "Romero" style tales.

The classics are what gives this anthology its dose of literary merit - the truly spooky and subversive "Lazarus" by Andreyev leads things off, and then we have some classic old school pieces by Sturgeon and Bloch, along with a witty tale by Saunders. The excerpt from King's "Pet Sematery" is going to be a tad confusing for those unfamiliar with the concept of that novel, but it still works as a stand-alone and is much better than the mediocre and over-anthologized "Home Delivery" tale also by King.

The Romero section also has a few surprises. Those of you who don't own "Book of the Dead" will be reasonably pleased to find that 9 out of the original 16 tales in that book are found herein. The good news is that they are probably the best portion of that original book (with the exception of the excluded Bryant "Diner of the Damned" piece which I loved.) The bad news of course is that if you do own that volume, you are now informed that you already own 9 out of the 34 stories in this book. There are 4 pieces from "Still Dead" in here also, so if you own both of the original S&S anthologies, you may want to think twice about picking this one up.

We also have a few pieces from the more recent "Mondo Zombie" anthology that 20 people in America bought, not including myself so I was happy to see these, except maybe for the somewhat annoying "Sparks Fly Upward" abortion rights piece that adds a tinge of odd political sensibility to a genre that IMO should not see any stump speeches except when someone gets a limb gnawed off...

Speaking of politics, I am thrilled to report that there are no "zombie political action campaign" (ZPAC) pieces here as were seen in Adams' uneven "Living Dead" anthology. That volume had zombies rising to vote for an anti-Second Amendment politician, zombies rising because of racist violence, zombies rising to protest hate-mongering in the War on Terror, zombies rising to protest anti-environmental corporate behavior, zombies rising to protest lack of affordable day care for the poor and middle class...well, only kidding on that last one. Blech. Thankfully we also have zombies in all of the Skipp stories, unlike three pieces in the Adams collection which, well, had no zombies in them. The absence of civics lessons and the presence of the subjects of the anthology's title in all of its stories is reassuring, at least in comparison with the other big collection of recent years.

How about overall story quality? Actually, surprisingly enough, I was very impressed. The Adams book though it had its flaws was a good read because of the high editorial standards exercised, and I was thinking Skipp was going to be more tolerant in letting kind of pulpy stuff in, but his collection though occasionally nasty, is of uniformly high quality. You may not like all of the stories, but they are not as deriviative and simplistic as some of the original Book of the Dead tales were, and they are head and shoulders above the various low budget zombie fic anthologies being cranked out by RPG companies and vanity presses.

Some of the pieces herein are elegant even in mainstream literary terms - the Bradbury piece, the Saunders one (which is pretty funny as well) and even the neat aqua-zombie story by Steve Duffy. Skipp also wins praise for his thoughtful and enthusiastic notes for each story. The "media and historical reference" section in the back of the book is both incomplete and kind of meandering so view this as a reading book not a reference one.

The only real problem with this anthology is that if you have been following the field of zombie anthologies diligently, you will already have read most of these stories. By my count, of the 32 stories here, a person owning Book of the Dead, Still Dead, and Adams' The Living Dead will have read 16 stories herein, i.e. ½ of the volume. If you don't own these earlier collections, or maybe if you just own the recent Adams one, this collection is a good buy.

“The end was near.” —Voices from the Zombie War

The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

Ranging from the now infamous village of New Dachang in the United Federation of China, where the epidemiological trail began with the twelve-year-old Patient Zero, to the unnamed northern forests where untold numbers sought a terrible and temporary refuge in the cold, to the United States of Southern Africa, where the Redeker Plan provided hope for humanity at an unspeakable price, to the west-of-the-Rockies redoubt where the North American tide finally started to turn, this invaluable chronicle reflects the full scope and duration of the Zombie War.

Most of all, the book captures with haunting immediacy the human dimension of this epochal event. Facing the often raw and vivid nature of these personal accounts requires a degree of courage on the part of the reader, but the effort is invaluable because, as Mr. Brooks says in his introduction, “By excluding the human factor, aren’t we risking the kind of personal detachment from history that may, heaven forbid, lead us one day to repeat it? And in the end, isn’t the human factor the only true difference between us and the enemy we now refer to as ‘the living dead’?”

Note: Some of the numerical and factual material contained in this edition was previously published under the auspices of the United Nations Postwar Commission.

Eyewitness reports from the first truly global war

“I found ‘Patient Zero’ behind the locked door of an abandoned apartment across town. . . . His wrists and feet were bound with plastic packing twine. Although he’d rubbed off the skin around his bonds, there was no blood. There was also no blood on his other wounds. . . . He was writhing like an animal; a gag muffled his growls. At first the villagers tried to hold me back. They warned me not to touch him, that he was ‘cursed.’ I shrugged them off and reached for my mask and gloves. The boy’s skin was . . . cold and gray . . . I could find neither his heartbeat nor his pulse.” —Dr. Kwang Jingshu, Greater Chongqing, United Federation of China

“‘Shock and Awe’? Perfect name. . . . But what if the enemy can’t be shocked and awed? Not just won’t, but biologically can’t! That’s what happened that day outside New York City, that’s the failure that almost lost us the whole damn war. The fact that we couldn’t shock and awe Zack boomeranged right back in our faces and actually allowed Zack to shock and awe us! They’re not afraid! No matter what we do, no matter how many we kill, they will never, ever be afraid!” —Todd Wainio, former U.S. Army infantryman and veteran of the Battle of Yonkers

“Two hundred million zombies. Who can even visualize that type of number, let alone combat it? . . . For the first time in history, we faced an enemy that was actively waging total war. They had no limits of endurance. They would never negotiate, never surrender. They would fight until the very end because, unlike us, every single one of them, every second of every day, was devoted to consuming all life on Earth.” —General Travis D’Ambrosia, Supreme Allied Commander, Europe
