Hi Darren,

Thanks so much for chatting with us from Shanada! I’m a big fan of the Zom-B books - They are awesome and gruesome! The TeenRC theme this year is Zombies. Why do you think zombies are so popular today?

Cheers,

Hi Jamie,

I honestly don’t know. I actually think zombies are very limited, and it takes a very creative writer or director to produce an interesting zombie story. Romero did it, particularly with Dawn Of The Dead, and Danny Boyle did it with 28 Days Later. I don’t think the interest will last, but I’m glad that it’s drawing attention to the horror genre—I always like it when there are breakout books and films.
