I also want to remind everyone that I have a contest going on right now. My very first contest. HAVE A ZOMBIE VALENTINE GIVEAWAY And in keeping with that theme don't be surprised if you see some zombie related things sneak into my posts...

A zombie is a creature that appears in books and popular culture typically as a reanimated dead or a mindless human being. They are among the lower forms of the undead, and often appear in large numbers. No one is certain about the origins of these pathetic and horrible things.

Stories of zombies originated in the Afro-Caribbean spiritual belief system of Vodoo, which told of the people being controlled as laborers by a powerful wizard.

Zombies became a popular device in modern horror fiction, largely because of the success of George A. Romero's 1968 film Night of the Living Dead.  Today, the modern zombie serves as a generic term that encompass a large variety of different undead-or-not creatures.

I ran across this at the Monstropedia website and couldn’t believe the amounts of information they had on all things monstrous, zombies included.

Thanks everybody! I just finished Freaksville, and can't wait to start Sing Me to Sleep. It'll have to wait until next week, though I think.
