Not With A Bang, With A Bite Thursday, 7/12/12, 1:15p.m. – 2:15p.m., Room: 6A
Great prophets, religious scriptures, and scientific evidence points to an apocalypse in 2012… but these authors envision the end of the world in the form of a zombie pandemic. With their decaying, disintegrating, and sometimes flesh-eating tendencies, zombies have lurked their way into science fiction and fantasy novels and are here to stay. Doomsday takes on a whole new meaning when losing limbs and lumbering across the earth are involved. Learn how to survive everything from zombie invasions to viral zombie infections from panelists: Jeyn Roberts (Dark Inside); Michael Spradlin (Blood Riders); Mira Grant (Blackout); Diana Rowland (Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues); Stephen Blackmoore (City of the Lost); Dana Fredsti (Plague Town); Susan Dennard (Something Strange and Deadly) and Max Brooks (World War Z), led by John Hornor Jacobs (This Dark Earth).
