Goodbye to All That

I'm trying to finish up a zombie trilogy I contracted to write. I've enjoyed myself and it's some of the best writing I've ever done. But after this...I'm done with zombies. Most of the zombie books I encounter are political tracts for gun-crazed right wing racist maddies--that seems to be the audience for these books. Quite frankly, there's not a whole hell of a lot of difference between your average zombie novel and THE TURNER DIARIES. So, after this, I'm done with the zombie fiction ghetto.
I've talked about this subject before and took quite a lot of heat for it. I've only ever deleted a few comments to this website, and those were all racist screeds and personal threats I received for writing about how most zombie fiction is right wing and racist, or at least particularly appeals to that crowd.
So, after I finish these stories, I'm going to avoid the zombie apocalypse as a subject for my fiction. It was fun for a while, but it's obvious to me where it ended up and I don't want to work in that little subset of horror fiction any longer. As with most of the self-published books I see, I don't want to be associated with most of the zombie novels I've read. There are some genuinely creepy folk walking around in that field.
Talk about your mindless, undead monsters ready to kill and eat you...

 A pair of racist gun-crazed fuckwads.

The top photo is of someone with a mental illness. He's not necessarily racist or gun crazy. He's just crazy.

Zimmerman may have been a bully wannabee cop but he's being unfairly lynched by the media. Witness accounts support his side of the story. The kid that was killed could have easily talked his way out of the situation. He made the mistake of using his fists instead of his head.

If George Racist Zimmermann had killed my son because he didn't like the way he looked I'd have tracked his worthless racist ass down and killed him dead, and then gone after his worthless family down to the last member.

But that's just me.

Both guys are gun-crazed racists. World would be much lighter and cleaner without either of them breathing on it.

I don't think Zimmerman killed Martin because of the way he looked.

He killed him because Martin was sitting on him while punching his face in.

Well, the lying, stinking, worthless, gun-humper is headed back to jail. Maybe we'll get lucky and see him take a dozen or so shanks up the ass. That would be great!
