I just got home from ZomBcon 2010 in Seattle where I gave a talk about zombies, served on a panel, and signed some books. ZomBcon was a really wonderful, well-run event. It was a delight to meet my fellow members of the Zombie Research Society Advisory Board, and all the other zombie luminaries present.
Here are some pictures:

We were totally in Seattle!

I shot an air-gun at zombie Hitler. It was awesome.
Bruce Campbell gave a rousing talk

The Zombie Research Society (an august body, upon whose advisory board I sit) is doing a contest/giveaway of a signed copy of The Art of Zombie Warfare. To win, you must describe the person you would most or least like to fight in zombie warfare, and explain why. If your answer is adjudged superior, the tome is yours!

Ryan Leach (Co-Creator of LostZombies.com, the world’s first community-generated zombie documentary) and Steven Schlozman (Co-Director of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Associate Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency for the MGH/McLean Program in Child Psychiatry, and Lecturer in Education at Harvard Graduate School of Education) have been added to the Zombie Research Society’s Advisory Board.
Here’s a neat interview with Dr. Schlozman about zombie neurobiology.
And here’s a link to LostZombies.com.
Welcome to them both!
Here’s a neat article featuring an interview with Matt Mogk of the Zombie Research Society from Wilamette Week, a news outlet based in Portland, Oregon. (I serve on the Advisory Board of the Zombie Research Society.)
We all know that zombies are 100% real, right?
Good. Because the Zombie Research Society has declared May to be Zombie Awareness Month. It will be commemorated by the wearing of gray ribbons, and concerned citizens are asked to “emphasize continued vigilance in the face of the coming Zombie Pandemic.”

Here’s a neat website for the Zombie Research Society. They have a wealth of information about the undead, and seem to be able to detect zombie-implications in the current events of the day. Also, their motto is “What you don’t know can eat you” which is pretty clever.
