The Non-Horror Reader Survey is taking part of the Summer of Zombie Blog tour. We have a Guest Interview of Horror author Todd Brown (Dead series, Zomblog). We haven’t touched much on the subject of zombies here at NHRS because while it is a sub-genre, it is a large sub-genre. Many books have built the mythos of this undead creature.

If you enjoy the interview, please check out the Facebook Page of the blog tour and check out all the other posts going on.
