Ever hear that phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover”? Zombie Science Z1 is the book that phrase was written about. The cover looks campy, even goofy, and so do the pictures of Dr. Austin. Even the intro to the book has some groan inducing humor and references… but do not be fooled, dear Zombiphiles!
From lessons on actual human body deterioration science and why Hollywood Zombies are really a joke, to the debunking of every type of Zombie you have ever considered and which ones may actually happen, Zombie Science Z1 offers all the Zombie Science one needs to become a professional Zombologist and more.
MODULE ONE: the Zombieism condition
This module examines the symptoms associated with fictional Zombieism. By identifying those that are unlikely we can begin to build a more realistic picture of what a zombie would really be like.
MODULE TWO: the cause of Zombieism
Both factual & fictional causes are blamed for creating zombies. In Module Two we study some of these and cover Doctor Austins main theory on the cause of Zombieism.
MODULE THREE: preventing & curing Zombieism
The final module looks at methods to prevent, contain and cure Zombieism. As well as conventional treatments, more unconventional options, such as projectile weapons will be studied.
When we say that the book breaks down what could cause Zombism and why they may or may not be plausible, trust us when we say it does just that! Alien DNA? Check! Virus? Check! Parasite? Check! Radiation? Check! PRION…. You bet your ever-living-backside!
Dr. Austin is a man who has done his research and his book holds so much scientific and historical information that it has earned a place in ZZN’s list of REQUIRED ZOMBIE SURVIVAL READING next to The Zombie Survival Guide, The Zombie Combat Manual, and The Zombie Autopsies!
So you want to be a certified Zombologist? Dr. Austin offers an exam on the website where, if you pass, you can get your certification sent to you e-mail! But be warned, don’t even think about trying to take the exam without reading the book, for it is no easy breezy test!
Best of all, Dr. Austin can even be “booked” to do actual lectures! Check out this beautiful video to get a taste of what Zombie Science Z1 has to offer:
