All About Zombies:
John Austin talked about zombies, and his handbook for the 'undead,' which features illustrations and diagrams. According to pop culture lore, there are three types of zombies, he said: the walking undead (reanimated people on the hunt for human brains), ragers (humans infected with rabies), and the supernatural (such as mummies guarding treasures). While these types of zombies are the stuff of science-fiction and horror, it's possible genetic or viral experiments could go awry and lead to a "serious problem," Austin noted.http://www.johnaustinbooks.com/zombie.html
From the info about this book:
"For centuries, humans have stereotyped zombies as simpleminded, flesheating monstrosities that aimlessly stumble around the world of the living, hunting for a taste of their most precious dish; the human brain. Dripping with infected blood, zeds slaughter, gorge, and multiply until they drive their principal food source, humankind, to extinction.
These assumptions are basically correct. We zombies are more reckless and less quick-witted then our living counterparts - our bloodstained history reflects that. Apocalpytic help is here! So Now You’re a A Zombie explains how your new, putrid body works and what you need to survive in this zombiphobic world. This quide is stuffed with dozens of helpful diagrams and attack strategies to help secure your human prey. You’ll learn how to successfully hunt, fight and feed on the living."
