Help make Shit Zombies Say: the book a reality.

I’m moving and dealing with everything going wrong with that, but because it’s time-sensitive I did want to step in briefly to point everybody at the Shit Zombies Say kickstarter.

The people who run the site that employs me to write zombie columns are producing a book that I’ll have some authorship credit for (how much is yet to be decided).  It’s a ton of fun so far.  I remember when I was doing opera how something that was once super fun became kind of…well…a job.  I don’t want writing to be like that, so I’m so happy to have the zombie writing, the gaming writing, and I’m especially happy that I’ve developed a style with atheism that allows me to keep my sanity (and humor).  I urge you to check it out and to toss a few bucks at the project if it looks appetizing to you.  Who’d have thought I’d have my name on a zombie book before my atheist book is out?

I’ll probably do some blogging on Sunday even though that isn’t my usual style.  I’ve got a lot I want to write about but I’ve been balls-to-the-wall busy with moving and packing the last few days.  Thanks for being patient!

    Good luck with the project. But I’m afraid I find Byron Rempel’s sample art to be quite uncool.

    It is true that cat meat is used in Guangdong and Guangxi cuisine (sometimes in an stew with snake and chicken), but in much of the rest of China eating cats is quite taboo – and animal cruelty rules officially make eating cats or dogs illegal country-wide. Cats are also eaten in many other places: some spots in Peru, a few Aboriginal groups near Alice Springs, and a few places in Switzerland. Under Swiss law, private consumption of cat and dog meat is allowed and not regulated, so there is no way to estimate how many cats are eaten each year. And of course, under famine conditions, people will eat just about anything.

    So saying “Save a cat, eat a Chinese” is quite inaccurate and rather racist.
