A Sort of Human Picnic

I don't think the cover artist had a real good grasp of just what a zombie was.

Nope. Looks pretty awful. What year was it done?

Thanks Rafael!

This is from '82.

If I could say any one thing to the young lady on the cover, I'd quote Hannibal Lector...

"LOVE your suit!"

Sure, the zombies may appear more like angry Nordic men than actual zombies...but c'mon...look at that jumpsuit.

have you read the book? the woman is actually the "zombie" and she isn't a zombie in the traditional sense. the zombies of the book are braindead people who have a chip implanted in them to keep them alive and walking around for cheap labor. the main character wakes up from her coma and can see/think/etc but can't control her body because of the chip.

its not about the traditional rotting zombies, etc.

I haven't read the book, I'm just interested in how the idea of the zombie has morphed over the years in pop culture.

This book sounds pretty intriguing, actually. I may have to look it up. Sounds paperworthy.

One of my favorite zombie novels.
