Dead Love: Zombie Roadkill – Squirrel’s Revenge

Dead Love: Zombie Roadk...

A squirrel, travel, kids, zombies … These are a few of my favorite things! So you can probably guess how excited I am about Zombie Roadkill from Ghost House Pictures, web only, on FEARnet. When a group of college kids run over a squirrel on an unfamiliar road, the repercussions...
Dead Love: Lush, Thrilling, Gripping

Dead Love: Lush, Thrill...

Thanks, Katie Burke for an awesome Dead Love review on Amazon: This book is a ride. Lush language, a page-turning plot, and thrilling travels gripped me from front to back cover. Each character is either deeply endearing or simply maddening – and in some cases, both. Dead...
11. Blame it on the Fugu (8)

11. Blame it on the Fug...

I had never eaten fugu, but I did like to follow Ryu’s lead. It was fun doing things with the yakuza. He was dangerous, too, like the fugu. That excited me. But this particular blowfish dinner had it in for me, and I passed out as I sipped at my cool, milk-colored sake, as I prepared...
Dead Love: Shukabo and Poe and Ravens, O My!

Dead Love: Shukabo and ...

Is it an elegiac paryclausithryron (an ancient Greek and Roman poetic form featuring the shut-out lover)? In a way it is, and it certainly elevated Edgar Allan Poe to pop star status back in the middle of the 19th Century, just as a hit song would do today. But E.A. never made much...
Dead Love: Zombie Animals at the Zombie Zoo

Dead Love: Zombie Anima...

Caging animals is just … wrong, like caging zombies (remember Survival of the Dead?). So I’m really glad they let the cat out of the bag, so to speak, at Zombie Zoo, purveyors of undead animals and creepy critters … in fleece. Apparently zookeeper and creator Neecy...
Dead Love: Post Apocalyptic Valentine

Dead Love: Post Apocaly...

Valentine’s Day approaches, Dead Lovers. As you may or may not recall, that is when this site was launched exactly one year ago. So DO expect some excitement from the Dead Love cast as the day draws nearer. As for me, it inspired another poem—a love poem—one that might explain...
Dead Love: Jay Chou Makes Kato so Cool

Dead Love: Jay Chou Mak...

Kato, the Green Hornet’s mysterious aide de camp, has never been cooler. I am a total pushover for a cute Asian dude—take, for instance, my inexplicable fascination with Ryu—so no surprise that Jay Chou is a current heartthrob. This is the role that made Bruce Lee famous,...
Dead Love: Zombies Invade Stanford Theatre

Dead Love: Zombies Inva...

A favorite ZIA member wants other locals to know that two great old Jacques Tourneur films, Cat People (1942) and I Walked with a Zombie (1943) are showing tonight—Monday, January 24th—at the Stanford Theatre at 6:10pm (zombies), 7:30pm (cat people), and 8:45pm (zombies). Don’t...
Dead Love: Zombie Con Artist

Dead Love: Zombie Con A...

How to be a zombie Con artist? First you need to know that there are some enormous Cons out there, and by that I mean Sci-fi and Fantasy Conventions. Some of them get pretty freaky, like Arisia, which returned to Boston for its 22nd year last weekend. The panels and events were ever...
11. Blame it on the Fugu (7)

11. Blame it on the Fug...

Ryu was especially fond of fugu. He loved the flush that suffused his body as his heart went into overdrive, the slight mist of perspiration that formed on his upper lip and brow, the gentle numbing of his extremities and the way the world around him seemed to soften and bend as he...
