The Constructed Zombie Type
Well no one took me to task over claiming that Jason from “Friday the Thirteenth” was a zombie so I might as well go full bore and proclaim that the monster from Merry Shelley’s “Frankenstein” is a zombie too.
Do you hear that? That soft thumping noise out there in the distance…. That is the sound of thousands of literary nerds rolling around in their graves.
I used to be of the opinion that Frankenstein’s Monster wasn’t a zombie, but since then I’ve been working on broadening my pallet on what I consider to be or not to be a zombie. I look forward to many people telling me how wrong I am for the rest of my life.
Broadening my pallet… over zombies? That sounds… wrong… somehow.
Also I just realized that “Unholy union of many different bodies” sounds really really dirty. I swear I wasn’t thinking about that when I wrote it.
