In two previous blog posts, we examined actor/comedian/author Patton Oswalt’s three personality types based on a teenage nerd’s preferences in pop culture. In his book, Zombie Spaceship Wasteland, Oswalt lays out the characteristics of the three personalities: Zombies simplify, spaceships leave, and wastelands destroy. Whereas wasteland personalities want to see their boring world utterly destroyed so that they can build a new world, zombies want the world left largely intact, but with the people removed. They want a new start, but not a completely clean slate.
Mmmm...BRAINS! Seems like zombies are all the rage these days, right? I mean, every other person I see has oozing bloody wounds and is shambling along the sidewalk. Of course that could have something to do with Halloween being two days away, but I feel I can safely say that the walking dead are here to stay (ha ha, Walking Dead, ha, pun intended). And nowhere are they more popular than in the zombie fiction that's spreading like a virus at libraries, book stores, and online.
Are you at home, bored, and not sure what to do anymore? Do your children just play video games all summer? Well, have no fear, the Library has got your back! We have tons of books that would interest any video gamer out there.
