Mail Order Zombie #164 - Long Live the Dead, plus Crypticon, Breathers, Handling the Undead, and MORE!

Download Mail Order Zombie #164 here!

Brother D and Miss Bren are catching their breath after last week's Crypticon Seattle, and the Mail Order Zombie Family is on board to help fill out the show while they unpack and reflect on the con. Need-a-Nickname Scott rocks the Zombie Beat with the best in the past two weeks' zombie news, Tracey brings two book reviews (Breathers: A Zombie's Lament by S. G. Browne and Handling the Undead by John Ajvide Lindqvist), Professor Chad reviews the answers from last month's ZAT and presents this months Zombie Aptitude Test question . . . and while Miss Bren is putting away the dirty clothes and empty suitcase, Brother D sneaks in a review of 2007's Long Live the Dead (dir. Keith Samland). Two celebrities from Crypticon (briefly) found their way into the Crypticon discussion, and if you like Midnight Syndicate, Miss Bren has a way for you to win a copy of their album The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates.
