Writing Prompt: . . . and Zombies

Posted by at 10:43 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Zombies130 There are a few kinds of characters that are always awesome. Pirates. Vampires. Vampire Pirates. Robots. Ninjas. And my personal favorite: Zombies. Don't know what it is, but I love zombie books, movies, video games, whatever. If I ever find some sweet heavy metal about zombies, that will probably be all I ever listen to for the rest of my life. The Haunting of Derek Stone: City of the Dead looks cool, but there definitely needs to be more zombie books out there.

 I like asking “what if.” So in the absence of a dedicated zombie genre, I'd like to propose another game. Add “and zombies” to any book title you can think of, and let's just all imagine the hilarity that would ensue.


Examples:Dead

“If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and Zombies”

“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Zombies”

“The Old Man And the Sea and Zombies”

“Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Zombies”

Do it! Use your brains! Youuurrr deeelliiccciiouuusss brrraaaiiiinnnnssss . . .

    Yes vampires are certainly cooler than zombies. But I’ll humor the prompt anyway.
    Twilight and Zombies
    Gossip Girl and Zombies
    The Clique and Zombies
    By the way, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an actual book out there. I’ve been meaning to read it. The cover just cracks me up. :)

    but i’m not terribly fond of zombies. on a scale of one to ten where one is “that’s about the least scary thing you could think of” and ten is “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH! WHY DID YOU SAY THAT?! YOU FREAKED ME OUT!” I give zombies a nine. (vampires get ten
