Unlike the Zombies in the “Walking Dead” or in George Romero’s Dead movies [and the countless Z movies worldwide inspired by his movies], these are the type of Dead that could take over. It’s also how they are depicted in my books, with the exception that in my books, the Dead are overdriven and a flavor of Undead–relentless, overdriven hordes that would be unstoppable in our world.
It’s funny how Zombie purists are offended by depictions like this of The Dead. The Dead in their beloved movies and TV serials could never overcome the living in our world. But … these Dead obviously could.
