Zombies of the World: A Field Guide to the Undead

October is Zombie Appreciation Month, so I'm having a sale. Save 5 dollars and get free shipping if you order the book this month or 2 bucks if you order the ebook. You can get the PDF version from me or the Kindle version from Amazon.

Unlike many other guides that are tedious and dry attempts to cash in on the undead, Zombies of the World is sharply written, wonderfully illustrated and designed, mercifully concise, and deeply influenced by zombie culture. And most important of all: it’s really fun to read. -The Zed Word

What makes this book so different from all the other Zombie Survival/Educational Manuals out there? To put it simply: Everything! The book reads as if the author threw a Zombie Text book, A Zombie Rights Guide, A Zombie Pop-culture reference tome and a Zombie Identification guide into a massive literary blender and hit the frappe button to amalgamate them into a smooth cocktail of terror like none other! -Zombie Zone News

Payton has taken considerable time and effort to intermix historical record with his book. This is what makes the Field Guide so much fun to read...The descriptions of some of the undead are really ingenious and comical...Ross Payton has done a wonderful job cataloging and identifying the numerous and various species of zombies that are or were roaming the earth

Zombies menace humanity, yet we barely understand them. Now available in print, PDF and Kindle. There are books that show you how to kill the undead but this is the first study to explain the importance of zombies to us. Zombies of the World reveals the undead to be a valuable part of our ecosystem and the key to new discoveries in medicine and technology. No other book covers these topics.

Zombies of the World documents that evolution has led to a wide variety of species. Few outside the scientific community even realize that creatures like the Egyptian Mummy (Mortifera mumia aegyptus) are actually zombies. Some species are even harmless to humans. The Dancing Zombie (Mortifera immortalis choreographicus) only seeks to thrill humans with elaborate dance routines.

After decades of research, we have no idea why zombies never tire or stop. They possess an endless source of energy to shamble or (in some cases) sprint after us. Unlocking this mystery could benefit all humanity. Only Zombies of the World tackles this issue and many other paradoxes.

Book blog:

During this month, I'll be posting a lot of new content on the blog including:
  • The conclusion of the Zombies of the World web series
  • Survivalism and the zombie apocalypse: a two part essay
  • Songs of the dead: great zombie songs you should hear
  • Behind the scenes: planning Zombies of the World
  • The new wave in foreign zombie films
  • A new excerpt from Zombies of the World
  • A podcast of Ross Payton’s Gencon 2011 Zombie Panel
I'm happy to answer questions about the book, self-publishing or zombies in general
