The Zombie Rights Campaign at Horrorhound

| September 10, 2012

That was a brisk weekend of outreach for the ZRC! Special thanks to ZRC pal Michelle Hartz, author of ‘Brains for the Zombie Soul‘, for capably operating our booth on Friday while I was otherwise detained learning about contracts and such. Zombies need contracts too, right? Horrorhound was of course inundated with Zombie-related media, and [...]

Short ZRC Vacation Until Horrorhound Indianapolis

| August 24, 2012

Hello out there, Zombie Rights Allies and Knowledge-Seekers alike. Just a quick note from your ZRC President here to say that since I start law school orientation next week (to learn new tools and techniques to protect our clients and promote The Cause) the ZRC is taking a short semi-vacation until September 7th when we [...]

Kickstarter for Napoleonic Age Zombie Adventure?

| August 22, 2012

I have to admit to a general ignorance of the historical fiction genre. There have been quite a few period Zombie stories of late, but most are copying the ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ trend and consist of mashups of varying amounts of original writing splashed in amongst public-domain classics. Which was an original idea.. [...]

‘Zombies on Kilimanjaro’

| May 9, 2012

This seems like another case of Don’t Use the Zed Word to me, but it unintentionally makes Zombies sound pretty awesome: FRAMINGHAM — World-traveling author Tim Ward will recount meeting “zombies” while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with his son, Josh, Thursday evening at REI Framingham. The author of six critically-acclaimed books, he will discuss his new [...]

Another Library Zombie Outing

| April 27, 2012

The ZRC blog has previously reported on the trend (one might say epidemic) of Anti-Zombie library programs for kids. Well, here’s a library program that seems more Zombie Friendly and less Living Supremacist, once you get past mainstream media bias: f brain-hungry zombies were going to attack somewhere, the library would probably be one of [...]

Horrorhound: Souvenirs and Research Materials

| March 28, 2012

Going to a convention for the ZRC isn’t just about outreach, of course – we also use these opportunities to gather vital intelligence on the Anti-Zombie movement, its propaganda and popularity, as well as search for other Zombie Friendly products and potential allies. We really had a great haul in this regard from Horrorhound Columbus: [...]

‘Brains for the Zombie Soul’, the ZRC-Approved New Work From Michelle Hartz

| March 16, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign is particularly proud of the solid working relationships that we have fostered over the years with artists, filmmakers, bloggers, journalists and authors, all in an attempt to promote a more Zombie Friendly and enlightened view of the Undead Community, both here and abroad. One of the most fruitful of these relationships [...]

Three New Zombie Apocalypse Books from Publisher Catering to Zompocalypse Fears

| February 24, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign has been trying to spread the word that there’s no need to fear the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ for some time now (we prefer the term ‘Global Reanimation Block Party’ at any rate). But there are those out there that really like, for some reason, the idea of your largely peaceful and law-abiding [...]

Zombie Fiction Authors Get-Together in Seattle

| February 23, 2012

This sounds like a fun opportunity for some outreach to Zombie fiction writers in the Northwest, if any Z-Rights activists in the area want to attend: Simply Twisted Productions invites you to attend their first Book Date at the Northwest Film Forum (located at 1515 12th Avenue, Seattle, Washington 98122) on February 25th, 2012. Doors [...]

Jonathan Maberry Sadly Still Not a Friend to Zombies

| February 16, 2012

We’ve talked about, and with, Mr. Maberry before but this latest interview with Buy Zombie is a bit depressing: JONATHAN MABERRY: I have two main reasons for my fascination with zombies. As a storyteller, I love the fact that there is no end to the number of stories you can tell about a zombie outbreak [...]
