Zombies, War and Historical Reenactments

September 10, 2009

No, that’s not  a real trailer. That is, however, clips from the audio book. The book is being adapted currently.

A hugely researched novel, Brooks based a lot of the diary entries on political, social and cultural histories.

The question has come up, though, with so many mainstream “fantasy/horror/sci-fi” trades lately – is genre subsuming the literature section itself?
