So when the Zombie Apocalypse happens for real, I will now know that it's your fault.

Well, it's not a "how-to" manual so much as a "what-the-hell-happened!?!" book.
And how did you find out what happened? By experimenting on dead bodies in your evil lab!

Nonsense! I'm a HEALER. I make adjustments to the human spine!

Actually, working out a reasonable explanation as to how something like a "Romero-verse" zombie could possibly exist was quite a lot of fun. When I got insight into the first few pieces though, the whole puzzle rapidly began to fall in place. Frighteningly enough, it's actually kind of REASONABLE, though I don't believe for an instant it could ever actually happen. But the internal logic makes a great deal of cause-and-effect sense. And it's a MUCH more satisfying explanation than, "it's a weird virus"--something which makes absolutely NO sense at all from a scientific or medical point of view.
OHHhhhhh . . . the pain . . . the pain . . .

My favorite TV show is "Cool Hand Luke Skywalker--Texas Ranger". The best episode is the one where he fights Samantha's wacky Sith Lord Uncle, Darth Arthur . . ."
