Today: since it's nearly Halloween - How about some zombies???


  Here are a few of the awful zombies in my book, Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter, 
called "too gory" by one reader: 

It raised claw-liked hands at her—or rather stumps since most of its fingers were gone.
***
Her (Lizzie's) eyes leaked tears from the strong, nearly overpowering scent of rot surrounding him.
*** 
 The thing shuffled faster, dragging its boney feet across the paving stones with a sickening scrape.
*** 
Several of the undead crouched over the remains of a few of the more unlucky students who hadn’t made it out in time. The creatures’ grunts and gurgles filled the room as they pawed at the gory remains. The wet slurps and sloppy chewing turned her stomach.
 *** 
 The skull of the ghoul nearest to her cracked and exploded. Fragments and nasty smelling remains scattered everywhere like a bomb exploding in a graveyard.
Today's Question:   What's your favorite or most feared kind of zombie?


 * About Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter:

Every family has its secrets…

 One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an axe and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become... zombies?

  1. I've felt some sympathy for zombies. Most walk around in a daze, having lost their wits. You've got some great lines there!!

  2. I think my favorite kind of zombies are the ones that use all senses equally rather than just sight and hearing. The idea of a zombie merely "smelling" you and following the trail makes your skin crawl, as merely existing can draw them to you if the wind dislikes you. I can't think of any scent-based zombies off the top of my head, but I know I've read some somewhere before.

  3. I like the zombies in Plants vs Zombies , hehe, they're just too cute. For scary ones: the cranks from the maze runner series, they were basically zombies anyway, and super creepy. The moviw ruined them.

  5. Gosh, I love all kinds of zombies, but I really fear the ones who can move fast.

  6. I love reading about zombies, the more advanced and creepy, the better. HOWEVER, if we're talking about ME and zombies, we have little issue, my friend. I'm in bad health, so I'm afraid of ALL zombies. They are the scariest creature, by far, since they MUST eat to exist and they lost their humanity. UGH. There's no way I'd survive unless I had a protector and I hate not being able to take care of myself.
