Holy crap! I read a book called “The Brain Eater’s Bible”
Well, being Halloween season and all, and the good people at St. Martin’s Press offered, so I read a book. “The Brain Eater’s Bible: Sound Advice for the Newly Reanimated Zombie” by J.D. McGhoul with Pat Kilbane (of Mad TV, and 2001′s Evolution). I personally remember him most fondly as Stan the Java Man from Mad TV.
So Kilbane writing as McGhoul, an intelligent literate zombie who didn’t become a slow moving groaning shuffling zombie, but a thinker who writes a journal, which has excerpts contained within the tome. So once you buy into that, you are off and running.
This is the flip side of “The Zombie Survival Guide” as it has been marketed. Everything from what parts of the brain are the tastiest, to hunting techniques, and self defense moves to use against the “freshies” with their varied and wide range of weapons.
It’s a good looking book filled with over 200 full color photos (don’t you tell me I was cheating), diagrams, and anatomical drawings, and it’s a quick read at 150 pages (yes including the pictures, back off already). Perfect for an amusing coffee table book/conversation starter during the Halloween season. It’s amusing and pretty clever. I am a big fan of clever.
It seemed that Kilbane did his homework regarding brain anatomy and explaining why zombies can only eat live human brains. Even how zombie anatomy is different from the “freshies”, and what happens to your junk after you have been infected. All covered in this handbook. There was some thought put in to it, and I can appreciate that.
It’s about time that the zombie population got a say! So stand up undead corpses and unite! After all zombies were people too!
