New Kindle Vella: SHE IS A DUCAL MODEL IN A ZOMBIE-LURKING GOTHICK WORLD.

My wife gave me the idea for that title. Moe, she says, Moe. If you must do this, go with Gilbert and Sullivan*. In fairness, I told her I was looking for a bad pun.

Anyway, the first three (and free!) episodes of SHE IS A DUCAL MODEL IN A ZOMBIE-LURKING GOTHICK WORLD** is now live, after many an annoying adventure along the way yesterday night. The rest will hopefully load today.

And check out that cover! Made using only the finest paint.net pixels. Artisanal, those are.

*I am paraphrasing. Perhaps unfairly.

**Formerly THE DEFENSE OF CASTLE WINDERMERE, which would have been a fine title except that a) the party was only briefly at Castle Windermere and b) was never actually shown defending it.

The ‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ trailer.

OK, normally I wouldn’t.

But Anna and the Apocalypse is a Christmas zombie movie musical.  That makes it legitimately of note.  It doesn’t mean that it’s going to be good; merely that they had to do some extra work to throw this sucker together.  That already puts it ahead of a lot of Christmas horror flicks.




The inevitable So They Found That Zombie Charnel Pit post.

It says something that this could be considered exciting news, huh?

Ten butchered skeletons are thought to offer the first concrete evidence that Medieval people hacked apart corpses to stop them returning as undead.

Cut bones, knife marks and evidence of scorching were found on the human remains, unearthed in a pit near the abandoned village of Wharram Percy, north Yorkshire.

My PJ Lifestyle piece on innovating zombies in RPGs.

Found here. Short version: there’s actually a bit that you can do with zombies in your campaign, and I didn’t even get to zombie pets or metaphors for the environment.  Although… a zombie campaign done in the style of the 1970s disaster movie genre could be hysterical.  Polyester leisure suits, and all.




So, KFC has put out a zombie-ATTRACTING sunscreen.

Well, they say that it’s just a sunscreen that makes you smell like fried chicken (I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP, by the way), but we know how it will all eventually go down, right?  Seriously, watch the video.  See that kid at about the thirty second mark?

…Are zombies over?

Have zombies peaked as a cultural meme, in other words?  And if they have, what’s the hot new horror meme? I do so like to keep up with this stuff.

…That’s pretty much it. I was going to do something zombie-ish, but then I stopped because I wasn’t sure if it was worth the trouble to do and whether anybody would want it anyway. Man, this trying to be hip and stylish and whatnot can be hard, sometimes.
