Many of you horror fans may already have this book. It's called "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Brooks. It can be found in most humor sections in bookstores like Borders and Barnes& Noble. Basically, it's a lampoon of the "Worst-Case Scenario" books. You could call it a cross-time book, because it takes place in a alternate universe where Zombification occurs from a virus called Solanum. Nobody knows how it got to earth, but it is a virus that kills a Human being then reanimates them. Like most zombies, the zombified ones can only die from a blow to the head, although they can be mutilated to the point where ONLY there head survives. These are the "classic" zombies of Low-budget lumbering fame. The book has to do with what weapons should be chosen (Hint: Don't use anything that wastes too much ammo but won't deliever a head shot), where you should hide (Hint: high, very, very high, Zombies don't have good enough motor skills to climb stairs or ladders), how you should move (Hint: Don't use motor vehicles, use bikes instead), How to organize survivors to battle back the Zombies and how to survive in a completely zombified world. The best part, however, is a appendix of recorded Zombie attacks. From the Ancient Egyptians (There's a reason they removed brains from Pharaohs..) to to the Zombie that washed ashore in St. Thomas US Virgin Islands, which brought tourist fame to the island. In between there are stories of Japanese WWII experiments to use Zombies as a terror weapon against America, Zombies that nearly caused a Chernobyl incident in China (They were only stopped by the Chinese Military), The 1960 incident in the USSR when the Soviet military nuked the Small Town of Byelgoransk because of a Zombie outbreak, How in 1996 a Film crew in Siberia sent to do a documentary on a Frozen cossack and a Sabre tooth tiger discovered that the Cossack was a zombie, frozen from time. Also included are tales of the experiences of Marco Polo, Feudal Japan's campaign against the ghouls and an incident where there were 3 Zombie sightings around the LA area in 1994. I highly reccommend this book. Even if you don't watch Zombie Movies (like me, I hate gorey movies), you'll love this book. Which, to my knowledge, is one of few reference books taking place in alternate timelines. Remember, if you shoot the head, the ghoul is dead.
