Thanks to Tedd Roberts, Neuroscientist and lifetime ZS member, for the mention in his recent article ""A Terrible Thing to Lose" – Zombie Science and Science Fiction in John Ringo's Under a Graveyard Sky.

"If I were a psychologist, I might mention that zombies represent fear of "The Other" - the foreign, even alien, presence that steals away our home and family; or that zombies represent fear of death or ending. On the other hand, as a firearm collector, Eagle Scout and member of Zombie Squad, I would bring up the fact that preparation for The Zombie Apocalypse is preparation for any disaster: natural or man-made. It only makes sense that a story-line which involves preparing to defend against the loss of all we hold dear would be popular in uncertain times that threaten jobs, homes and our very lives."

Wouldn't night of the living dead zombies be category two?

Anyway, cool article.
