Harry Potter and Zombies

| January 20, 2015

An interesting topic was recently brought to the Zombie Rights Campaign’s attention by our friends/occasional ideological sparring partners at Why weren’t Zombies represented in the Harry Potter books? We’ve seen recent hubbub over religious representation in the books, but honestly, I had not given a lot of thought to Zombies at Hogwarts. Now, the [...]

Zombie Rights Campaign – Spring Update

| April 5, 2014

Hello out there, Zombies and Zombie Allies! Apologies for the relative dearth of content the last few months; it’s the end of my second year in the school of the law and there are midterms to take, finals to study for, and my law-related job is training me to handle actual clients and their cases. [...]

Zombie Law School and ZRC Updates

| February 1, 2014

I have started the second semester of my second year at law school, and am busy learning things to advance the cause of Zombie Rights (I hope). I have taken all my required Constitutional Law classes, which are of obvious import, but everything could have implications for the Differently Animated, at least to my so-far-relatively-inexperienced [...]

The Dishonored Dead: The Giveaway!

| September 6, 2013

The Zombie Rights Campaign loved ‘The Dishonored Dead’, as longtime readers will recall. Would you like to read it for free? Well here’s your chance! Don’t say we never gave you anything. Well, don’t say we never gave you the chance to win anything, at least.

‘GNASH’, A Zombie Apocalypse Novel for the War on Terror Generation

| September 6, 2013

It is often said that Zombies, in fiction, are a metaphor for social unrest or collapse. Conversely, Zombie fiction is sometimes said to be tied to *good* times. It’s complicated. But whether Zombies are themselves a metaphor, Zombie fiction still has to deal with the world its readers/watchers/players are from. In 1985, for example, ‘Return [...]

‘Warm Bodies’ February 1st, Serious Media Buzz

| January 6, 2013

Entertainment Weekly, about as reliable a gauge of the Mainstream as one could imagine, has named ‘Warm Bodies’ one of its 35 most anticipated movies of 2013. Why 35? Who knows! But it will apparently be out on Feb 1st and with all this free advertising maybe, finally, some minds will be changed about Zombies. [...]

Discovery Channel Teams Up with Dr. Schlozman to Peddle Zombie Apocalypse Fears

| December 8, 2012

Well, this is truly a disheartening example of media pandering: Discovery Channel has ordered the documentary special Zombie Apocalypse, which examines whether a walking dead-style invasion is actually possible and introduces a quartet of people from various backgrounds who are readying themselves, just in case. Sigh… Really, Discovery Channel? You’re pushing Living Supremacism on an [...]

Shameless Reliance on BuyZombie for Assistance

| December 3, 2012

While Zombie Law School and NaNoWrimo have been keeping us busy on non-ZRC matters around here, BuyZombie has taken up the slack nicely. They have two reviews of new Zombie novels out lately, both of which are apparently novel takes on the ‘Zombie apocalypse’ from a Zombie’s perspective. Tragically, one is apparently far better than [...]

NaNoWriMo 2012: Oops

| December 3, 2012

So, posts on the site have been a bit light lately. Ok, extremely light. There are two reasons: one is that pursuing the degree to become the world’s first Zombie Rights Lawyer takes a rather shockingly huge amount of time/effort/soul-crushing despair. The second is that, taunted by longtime ZRC collaborator/Lord of the Pit Michelle Hartz, [...]

First ‘World War Z’ Trailer Not Promising For Zombies, Movie-Lovers

| November 9, 2012

Our friends over at Into the Dark have alerted the ZRC to the first trailer for the upcoming (and highly troubled) major Living Supremacist film ‘World War Z’, based somewhat loosely on the book of the same name by Max Brooks. Having seen it, I have to say my earlier suspicions that the novel had [...]
