Zombie fans will have a chance to author Glenn Kay at a book signing that he will conduct at Larry Edmunds Bookshop on October 24.  Kay will be signing copies of his new book: Zombie Movies.

About the book:
In Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide, Second Edition(Chicago Review Press, October 2012) film buff Glenn Kay traces the rise, fall and resurrection of zombie movies—from the first frightening flick White Zombie in 1932 to the recent genre-bending thriller Cabin in the Woods in 2012.

Now revised and expanded to include over 100 new spine-tingling films, along with their accompanying posters and stills, this latest edition of Zombie Movies also includes a forward from renowned Cuban director Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead).  Regaling zombie movie fans with nearly 400 movie reviews using the author’s own illustrated rating system, this compendium also includes rare interviews with motion picture talents, a countdown of the 25 greatest zombie films ever made and a hilarious guide to what differentiates a zombie from other ghouls, ghosts and monsters. Tracing the evolution of the zombie in pop culture over the decades—from voodoo slave to brain-eating undead to raging infected—Zombie Movies provides plenty of informative and entertaining brain food for serious fans and casual moviegoers alike.

Combining in-depth coverage of the genre’s most chilling (and sometimes humorous) films with 16 pages of color poster reproductions and more than 200 black and white movie stills, Zombie Movies is a fun and fascinating overview of a film genre that, like its monsters, just won’t die.
