Zombie Science: Bringing People Back From the Dead?

There are few things in life more permanent and guaranteed than death. Yet, that doesn’t stop us from imagining what life would be like if death was only temporary. In AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” returning Sunday, June 2, at 9 p.m. EDT/8 p.m. CDT, reanimated human corpses roam the world, having avoided the permanent stillness of death only to devour the living. Now, we know zombies aren’t real, but reanimated corpses aren’t exactly a figment of the imagination. Scientists have been attempting to restore life to the dead for hundreds of years. In the 1800s, physicist Giovanni Aldini became … Read more

ANNOUNCEMENT/GIVEAWAY: Stalker/s, by L.J. Hasbrouck

L.J. Hasbrouck has a new MM zombie tale out: Stalker/s. Brian Jameson doesn’t even get a chance to pick a college before a worldwide pandemic breaks out—and his home is Ground Zero.

But when desperate looters attack Brian’s new home, he and his grandfather must flee into a wintery Midwestern wasteland now populated by intelligent infected known as “Stalkers.” These ghoulish creatures don’t shamble in hordes—they hide in the darkness waiting to strike, teeth bared in ghastly grins.

Farming During the Zombie Apocalypse

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and people will soon be hitting up the grocery stores to get all the ingredients they need for a delicious feast — but what if that wasn’t an option, and instead, you had to grow all your food from now on? True, that’s a dramatic and highly unlikely situation — but would you know where to start? In AMC’s “The Walking Dead” (which airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. CST), characters have survived years after the zombie apocalypse began and are now living in communities that demand a stable food supply. Farming is … Read more

SCIENCE: Catching a Zombie (Virus)

There’s no way around it: Viruses are scary. They’re invisible to the naked eye, they can be difficult to get rid of and many are capable of spreading quickly. That’s why it’s important to detect a disease-causing virus before it has the chance to infect so many people that it’s impossible to contain. Failure to detect and contain a deadly virus early enough to prevent an outbreak is a key component of the story in AMC’s sci-fi series “Fear the Walking Dead” (which airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. EDT/8 p.m. CDT, starting Aug. 12). The show, now in its … Read more

Raccoons acting like “zombies” have been scaring residents of one Ohio town, according to news reports. In recent weeks, police in Youngstown, Ohio have received over a dozen calls about raccoons acting strangely in broad daylight, according to local news outlet WKBN. One resident, Robert Coggeshall, told WKBN that he spotted a raccoon behaving very oddly last week while he was playing with his dogs outside. The raccoon “would stand up on his hind legs, which I’ve never seen a raccoon do before, and he would show his teeth and then he would fall over backward and go into almost … Read more

News: Zombie in the Park


Two Ohio men are under investigation by state officials after a zombie prank left some frightened residents thinking that there were human remains in a state park. Dustin Smith and Jasen Dixon, who are widely known for staging an annual “zombie nativity scene” near Cincinnati, said they were just looking for a little fun when they placed fake body parts beneath a frozen, backyard pond for Facebook photos. To make it more exciting, they pretended in their posts that the body parts were human. “About two hours after it started is when I received the call from the [Department of … Read more

Science: How Long Will the Zombie Apocalypse Last?

Life with zombies wouldn’t last long. A new study concludes that ravening zombie hordes would reduce Earth’s population to no more than 200 survivors within 100 days. The research, published in the University of Leicester’s peer-reviewed Journal of Physics Special Topics, is a tongue-in-cheek analysis by physics students of a mathematical model that predicts the spread of disease. But in the model, zombies serve a deadly serious function: to simulate how quickly a virus could wipe out the planet. The model divides the population into three categories: those susceptible to the infection, those infected, and those who have either died … Read more
