I recently sat down with a friend’s kid to talk to him about zombies.  It wasn’t a birds and bees kind of talk to explain where they came from, it was for a research paper he was doing for class.  He was pulling from different sources and had wracked his brain trying to find someone legitimate to interview about zombies.  When he told me that and said I qualified, I bit the inside of my cheek to keep from laughing.  Legitimate?  Me?  Oh, I highly doubt that, but I was flattered nonetheless.

He asked several interesting questions, and even filled me in on some things I didn’t know.  The biggest theme that ran through the interview was “Do you think it could really happen that zombies would rise up?”  To be honest, no, I don’t think a zombie apocalypse would occur.  The CDC is pretty good about keeping infectious diseases in check, and we also have airplanes and helicopters that could blast the creatures out of the sky.  And let us not forget all the civilians who own firearms.  I’m pretty sure we could crush the zombies before they had a chance to get out of hand.

Still, it’s fun to think of what would happen if zombies did take over.  While I was being interviewed, the question came up of what I would do if the undead walked the earth.  For me, personally, I would get as far away from people as possible.  I would find someplace isolated and remote that is easily defended.  It’s the best way to ensure safety.  Besides, the zombie will stick to the cities where the food source is.  Get away from the prey, and you should be relatively safe.

Both Life After the Undead and Death to the Undead explore different scenarios of what could be done during the zombie apocalypse.  I think one of the most important things to remember is to use your brain.  Zombies are not smart.  They are driven by base desires.  Yes, they have numbers on their side, but you can out think them…and you should.  If you need some pointers and tips, check out the books!
